Ash Princess By Laura Sebastian


Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed “Ash Princess.” Pretending to be empty-headed and naive when she's not enduring brutal whippings, she pushes down all other thoughts but one: Keep the Kaiser happy and he will keep you safe.

When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can't keep her feelings and memories pushed down any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser's warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn't expect to develop feelings for the Prinz. Or for her rebel allies to challenge her friendship with the one person who's been kind to her throughout the last hopeless decade: her heart's sister, Cress.

Cornered into impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she's willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she's willing to sacrifice to become queen.

Review - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I received this book free from in exchange for a review.

Lady Thora is trapped in her own castle by the Kaiser fearing everyone. Anytime her people rebel or something happens that displeases the Kaizer she is whipped. The Kaiser captures the leader of the rebels and makes Thora kill him. A familiar face from her past comes and reminds her that she is Queen Theodosia and that her people need her. Together, she and her three "shadows" come up with a plan to get revenge and give her back her freedom. This is a story about defying the odds and fighting back. The courage to do the things that need to be done for the greater good.
