What a fitting continuation to a beautifully written saga of love, life, loss, romance, deception. I have thoroughly rnjoyed this series, what a remarkable addition to the continuing storyline. This is quickly becoming my favorite author you surely won’t be disappointed.

So the second book devoted to these two and another cliffhanger... I can't believe nothing was resolved with Vard. What was the point of this book? Alecia got on my nerves too. She kept a huge secret the entire book. Even when it was revealed at the end she still didn't tell the whole truth. I also understand conflict needed to happen to separate them, but that issue was weird. Was he aggressive? Was she enjoying it and just embarrassed? Was it a spell? But the annoying thing is regardless he ap ...more

Ah! The tension grows in this fast-paced sequel to The Princess Avenger. Princess Alecia and her protector Vard (with whom she is in love) travel towards a realm ruled by a sorcerer. There they hope to find a way for Vard to control his shapeshifting which can affect his ability in a tight position. You see, he can't control which of several forms to take.

But Alecia holds a secret, something terrible that can break the trust between her and Vard. Worse! It's a growing secret. (No more said for s

Princess in Exile is another good book in the exciting Queenmakers Saga by Bernadette Rowley. I enjoyed that this was a follow-up to book 1. I like the relationship between Alicia and Vard, although I felt that it was a little forced at times. They continue to grow together as they forge on in their quest for a mentor for Vard. Until Vard can learn to control his transformations, their relationship will forever be doomed as forbidden lest he harm Alicia. I hope to come back to Vard and Alicia so ...more

A worthy sequel to the Princess Avenger

This book took a slightly darker tone compared to the first book in the series. While I did enjoy reading 'Princess In Exile', I enjoyed 'Princess Avenger' more, as it was slightly more engaging. I am intrigued as to where Bernadette Rowley will take the third book of the series and am highly anticipating reading it.

An enjoyable read. Recommended for lovers of Romantic Fantasies.

Anton Vard continues the search for a mentor to teach him control of his shifting. He needs to protect Alecia from being harmed by him when he has shifted into animal form. Their search will bring them moments of intimacy, joy, danger, capture, sorcery, betrayal and pain. I don’t want to spoil the plot, so you will have to read their adventures for yourself.

Can’t get enough of this couple

So glad to get back to Vard and Alecia. These two definitely don’t have an easy relationship or an easy life. Lots of drama, many many secrets and deep emotions. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes from here, I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the dark elves or Leth, so many things still left to tell.

Princess Alecia and Vard have to flee as they are persued by mercenaries. Will Vlad get the help to control his gift. Wonderful fantasy story.

While not as romantic as the first book, it was still a great read, the characters you know and love are back and their backstories and current ones fill out in this beautiful sequel. A compelling book I loved it.
