We rated this book:


Rise of the Vicious Princess is about a young princess named Charis Willowthorn. Charis has been taught her whole life to show no emotion and know how to manipulate people in the political world. She only has one friend, her sweet little handmaiden, Milla. One day at a ball, there is an assassination attempt on the Queen’s life and a spy is found in Charis’s bath chamber. As a result of this failed assassination attempt, the Queen is injured and unable to rule. Milla, the guards, and other maids who were near the attempt are all killed by order of the Queen.

With her mother injured, Charis takes up the task of leading her kingdom in the middle of a war. She vows to never get close to the staff members of the castle again; she will never befriend another Milla. Then Charis ends up getting caught between a forbidden romance and the stress of ruling her kingdom. With enemies lurking around every corner who want the throne for themselves, Charis must be on guard at all times as she wonders if she can truly trust anybody.

Rise of the Vicious Princess was amazing! It is exactly the type of story I love to read. It has fantasy, betrayal, romance, and extremely powerful female characters. If you believe in girl power, then this is definitely a book for you! Rise of the Vicious Princess was an awesome page-turner. I am so glad I got it; I am sure you will be too!
