Synopsis from Goodreads: In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison. Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace–someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir’s eye, it’s Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding. Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything.
My Review: I was surprised by how much I loved this book. It was a book with two main characters that I adored each for their own strengths. This is story with so many twists and turns that it will keep you reading long past your bedtime. The first thing I loved about the book was that both sisters are strong and fierce in their own unique ways. They have their flaws but at their hearts is conviction and love for each other and their families. It was refreshing to like both main characters too. The storyline was a good one and the plot flowed nicely. The writing is straight forward, making it a quick easy read that readers will really enjoy. If you enjoyed The Selection, Hunger Games or Everless then you need to check out this book! One thing I should warn you about though, it ends on a hell of a cliff hanger and I’m already yearning for book two.
