Summary, etc.:
When King Jameson declares his love for Lady Hollis Brite, Hollis is shocked--and thrilled. After all, she's grown up at Keresken Castle, vying for the king's attention alongside other daughters of the nobility. Capturing his heart is a dream come true. But Hollis soon realizes that falling in love with a king and being crowned queen may not be the happily ever after she thought it would be. And when she meets a commoner with the mysterious power to see right into her heart, she finds that the future she really wants is one that she never thought to imagine.

    Loyal fans of Kiera Cass' Selection series can exhale a sigh of relief as the first in her long-awaited regal duology has at last arrived. When Lady Hollis Brite wins the enviable affection of King Jameson, she believes she's been bestowed with everything any girl in Coroa could ever hope for. But Hollis quickly learns that sometimes being queen only earns one a title and status as the king's ornament, and that an opportune encounter with a handsome foreigner can pave her way to a drastically different future. Cass marks her return with the lure of royal conventions and a character who is charming in her naivete regarding ladylike etiquette. Establishing the authenticity of the sixteenth-century setting through appropriate vernacular is crucial in a period-based novel, so the ill-timed use of contractions creates a flimsy sense of place. Hollis' lack of emotional range as the story progresses is saved by her resilient disposition and humanizing early faux pas. Readers can expect this off-kilter romance tethered to a gut-wrenching conclusion to make them cry: the signature of a Cass book. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
