“Off with his head!”
This is the story of how a queen lost her heart.
Meyer has done it again, she’s taken a favorite story and crafted an amazing world of her own.
This story follows Catherine Pinkerton, the daughter of a Marquees and the favorite of the King of Hearts. But she does not want to be queen, she wants to open a bakery. She was such an amazing main character! I loved her from the start!
And Jest … oh sweet, sweet Jest.
Not going to lie, some parts were incredibly predictable but she took those parts and expanded on them so you didn’t feel like the story was being ruined by them.
Just such an incredible book. So well written, amazing characters, fantastic storyline …. I don’t know how she keeps doing it.
I really cannot wait for her next book! I have high expectations for it already!
