Hey guys! So, my friend Grace (QuirkyAndPeculiar) decided that we wanted to up the ante of our most recent buddy read. So, we are cross posting our reviews! To see my review over on Grace’s blog, click HERE.
One more thing before I hand you over to Grace: if you didn’t know, she and I do something called the QuirkyWizard liveshow. Every month, we read one fantasy novel and one contemporary novel, and then discuss them in one hour long live chats on our youtube channels. The next one will be on June 10th on Grace’s channel (click HERE), and we will be discussing this book, The Traitor’s Kiss by Erin Beaty! If you’ve read this book, please come discuss with us!
Without further ado, here’s Grace!
The Traitor’s Kiss by Erin Beaty
Series: The Traitor’s Trilogy book one
Genre: Historical Fiction/Fantasy
Release Date: May 9th, 2017
Star Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.
With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.
As the girls’ military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.
I kind of went into this book not knowing anything about other than Morgan describing it as “Jane Austen with swords” and as someone who’s never read Jane Austen (please don’t kill me I’ll read them eventually) I did not know quite what to expect; however, I was pleasantly surprised to find me hooked and dying to get my hands on the next one.
