  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 November #2
    Queen Lilianna of Renovia finds herself widowed with a new infant daughter after her husband, King Esban, sacrificed himself trying to recover the Deian Scrolls from the villainous Aphrasian sect. Through a magic ceremony, Lilianna binds advisor Cordyn Holt to her, ensuring his loyalty—and that of his heirs—to the task of recovering the scrolls; Cordyn's son, Caledon, known for both his brains and brawn, inherits the task. When Cal is thrown together with Shadow, a would-be assassin with magical powers, their blossoming romance is frustrated by the reveal of Shadow's true identity as Princess Lilac, daughter of Queen Lilianna. Shadow and Cal alternate chapter narration; hers is first person while his is third person, a nice touch that expands characterization. De la Cruz's trademark tight construction, detailed world building, and action-packed romance are all at work in this sure-to-be-popular new series. Magic, romance, political intrigue, and costume description abound. It may be formulaic, but it's a lot of fun. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
