Melissa's Review:

Protect the Prince is book 2 in the Crown of Shards series. I really enjoy Jennifer Estep's writing style so all of her books are must reads for me. This series started strong with the previous book and this one was just as exciting! If you're a fan of Fantasy novels you're going to love this series.

Everleigh Blair (aka Evie) is the new queen of Bellona, things are not going so smoothly for her though. While entertaining some of the nobles an assassin goes after Evie and it brings some serious questions to the table. Evie knows she needs to gain allies to build strength and visits another palace to try to reach an agreement. Not everyone is happy to see her and her entourage and more assassins pop up. This installment had me questioning a lot of things, who was behind the assassins and what their motivation is on this mainly. This book kept me on my toes, with plenty of twists and turns and deception I wasn't sure what to expect next.

Protect the Prince is a strong follow up to a series I already love. I very rarely read books in one sitting anymore, but this was one of them. I could not put this book down. I'm loving Evie's character and all the action scenes mixed into the story. There's even romance in this installment which I always appreciate. Evie is slowly understanding more about her powers and we're learning right along with her. In other words, good character growth and mixed in with a plot full of action and you have a real page turner. I'd highly recommend this series to Fantasy lovers out there.
