Heiress of Lies is a very well written, beautiful novel of a girl in torment, and a man who would die to save her from herself. The characters are strong and easily likeable, and the novel moves flawlessly through one crisis to another. Normally I do not enjoy many novels with such a sci-fi overtone, but this book blends the fantastical and the normal into a world that can easily be envisioned. I truly enjoyed this book, and am quite eagerly anticipating the next book, aptly entitled The Queen’s Betrayal. This novel does not disappoint. It takes the reader on a fantastical voyage that is more than worth the trip.
Princess Angeline Robart always knew her place in life. Destined to be Queen of Altera, her entire life was planned out to the last little detail. Now her father is dying, and she must return from school to ascend to the throne. On the way back, however, she is waylaid by vampire Connor Radwin, and in saving Angeline from a random act of fate, both the fates of Connor and Angeline are irrevocably changed, and not necessarily for the better. Secrets will be uncovered, and lives will be dramatically altered. Can Angeline keep her nature a secret from the people she is sworn to protect? Can Connor outrun his past and survive to achieve his goals? Travel with the pair and join the adventure.
Blood never lies, but people do...
With the King of Altera on his deathbed, all eyes are on his only child, eighteen-year-old Angeline Robart. The crown princess is called from her studies to return to her father's side, but is kidnapped en route by Connor, a mysterious rogue who has his own reasons for becoming involved in the high stakes game of political intrigue.
Facing the consequences of a freak accident that even Connor could not prevent, Angeline must travel a dangerous path to regain control of her fate and her kingdom. Her impossible choice forces her to rely on the man who epitomizes everything generations of her family tried to destroy.
As the last of the Robart bloodline, Angeline discovers that enemies she thought long conquered have been lying in wait for just such an opportunity as her father's death to turn events to their advantage. Worse yet, by uncovering those secrets, Angeline is forced to confront the possibility that no one ever expected her to take the throne in anything but title alone.
But the more she learns about Connor, the more she realizes they have far more in common than she ever expected, and that could make him just the ally she needs.
