Synopsis from Goodreads:Everyone expected the king's daughter would inherit the throne. No one expected me.It shouldn't even be possible. I'm Nameless, a class of citizens so disrespected, we don't even get names. Heck, dozens of us have been going missing for months and no one seems to care.But there's no denying the tattoo emblazoned on my arm. I am queen. In a palace where the corridors are more dangerous the streets, though, how could I possibly rule? And what will become of the Nameless if I don't?

My Review: I loved the premise of this and the book started out strong for me. I like Coin (the main character) quite a bit. She's witty and strong and doesn't need any guy (seriously, thank you for that!) to help her out. She was not, however, strong enough to carry the book. After the first half the pace slowed and just didn't hold my attention as well. There were quite a few plot points, mainly about the nameless that I felt were not dealt with well enough and I didn't love the way the book ended. All in all though it was a fresh idea and I do look forward to reading more from this author.
