it was amazing

LOVED it. I have really enjoyed all of Annette K. Larsen's books. This one was no exception. I'll just be honest- I was seriously crushin' on West, Raina's guard- like for the entire book. It was ridiculous. But anywho...
Lorraina is the least likeable sister in the series. She's very worried about acting as royalty should act. Although this book can stand alone, you should probably at least read Missing Lily so you have a little bit of background on what Lorraina is working through. She had been in love (or what she thought was love) with Tobias, and he was killed in front of her. For a year she's been trying to work through those emotions, and find herself. However, after "acting the part" for so long, she isn't sure she knows who "Raina" really is. Lorraina has never felt she was the noticed princess or even someone to really be loved. She begins to confide and lean on someone who has been a constant in her life... and then he leaves. Will Lorraina be able to see and find the real her? Can she finally heal and learn to live?
I just adored this book. I never really disliked Lorraina in the other books. I just KNEW there had to be more to her! I loved seeing her discover herself. And I loved, and reread several times this one part of the ending: "Then he looked up toward the castle - toward me- and dropped his sword. He took off at a sprint, heading for the nearest doors leading inside. It took me a moment to realize what was happening. Was he truly running to find me? Could I inspire such action in a man?" Oh my word, y'all. I want a man to sprint to find me. :)
I have this on my kindle- as I was given a copy for an honest review. But when I finished the book last night, I ordered the paperback to complete my set. I know it's one I will read over and over again.
