On Tour with Prism Book Tours

(The Lost Princesses #0.5)

Christian YA Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 136 Pages

A fierce elite guard. A loyal lady in waiting. They must work together to save three princesses from certain death.

On the verge of dying after giving birth to twins, the queen of Mercia pleads with Lady Felicia to save her infant daughters. With the castle overrun by King Ethelwulf’s invading army, Lady Felicia vows to do whatever she can to take the newborn princesses and their three-year old sister to safety, even though it means sacrificing everything she holds dear, possibly her own life.

Gravely wounded in battle and knowing all is lost to his enemy, the king of Mercia tasks Lance, one of his fiercest elite guards, to protect his family along with keys to an ancient treasure. As Lance makes plans to sneak the princesses out of the capital city, he doesn’t need or want Lady Felicia’s help.

With the dark enemy in pursuit, Lance and Felicia must put aside their differences to outrun King Ethelwulf and prevent him from killing the princesses. In a desperate attempt to hide the young girls, Lance and Felicia agree to a marriage of convenience, a decision that will change their lives—and hearts—forever.

My thoughts:  I loved this introduction to the Lost Princesses. You know you are in for a good series when you can't put down the prequel! I really can't wait to see how the Princesses lives have turned out and how they will beat the evil that has taken over their kingdom.

This novella features Felicia, a lady in waiting to the Queen. She is to take the newborn twins and the heir to the throne to safety. She and one of the King's guards, Lance, take on a perilous journey to save the Princesses. The story was filled with action and adventure that I had a hard time putting it down.

I am so excited to read the series!!!!

(The Lost Princesses #1)

Paperback & ebook, 222 Pages
August 27th 2019 by Northern Lights Press

An ancient key. A secret treasure. And a princess destined to use them both to fight evil and restore peace.

Raised by a noble family, Lady Adelaide has always known she’s an orphan. Little does she realize she’s one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne…until a visitor arrives at her family estate, reveals her birthright as queen, and thrusts her into a quest for the throne whether she’s ready or not.

Unable to tolerate King Ethelwulf’s cruelty and lawlessness, Christopher Langley left Mercia years earlier, training a group of rebels in neighboring Norland. When he returns home after his mother’s death, he discovers that not only is Adelaide all grown up, but she’s also the rightful queen of Mercia.

When King Ethelwulf discovers Adelaide’s location, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and the key she holds to the ancient treasure. Christopher is just as determined to protect Adelaide so she can lead the growing rebellion. When feelings ignite between the two old friends, forces threaten to destroy their love and rip them apart forever.

My thoughts I LOVE this series.  That's all there is to it.  I want to keep reading it, but unfortunately, the next two books haven't come out yet.  It's probably a good thing, this way I can get a little bit of sleep while I wait for them.

This story has many elements that I love.  There is action, adventure, strong female characters, romance, medieval setting,  self-sacrifice... if I don't stop now it could end up being a very long list.

Lady Adelaide finds out on her birthday that she is a Princess, not only a Princess but the heir to the throne of Mercia.  She has been hidden from the world at a remote estate.  She has a family that she loves.  Growing up with male cousins, who are more like brothers, has given her the ability to fight like a knight.  She is spunky, kind, and compassionate.  She is respected because of her work in helping out the people who have been drained financially by the King who conquered her country.

In this story, she is in a fight for her life and her kingdom.  She has men who are loyal helping her unravel clues that will lead her to her sisters and an ancient treasure that will help overthrow King Ethelwulf.  I really did not want to put it down.  I need to know how they would outthink and outmaneuver the force pursuing them.

I have to mention that this book also contains romance.  (Yay)  Falling in love with a worthy man is a must for any Princess/Queen who is in a fight to regain her country.  I must say that I was very happy with her love life.  It was satisfying to read about.  ;)

I NEED to finish this series.  I have to know if there will be a "happily-ever-after" for Adelaide and her sisters.   I may or may not have pre-ordered the second book that comes out two days after my birthday.
