Summary from Goodreads
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all.

With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most – a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavoury hobby – it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good.

But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

My Thoughts

5 out of 5 Stars.

This book! I loved it.

I really enjoyed this story and plot. This was an amazing retelling of The Little Mermaid. I loved that it was about sirens and the main character Lira was perfect. I loved her character so much, she was feisty and wasn’t bothered to say exactly what she was thinking.

The story was well put together and I loved that it was told from two points of view, which brings me to Elian. I really liked his character and thought he was written well. I loved his crew as well and they had such a great friendship.

I don’t want to give too much away and ruin the plot but oh you should totally read this. It was dark, feisty and a well woven retelling.

I highly recommend To Kill a Kingdom!

Summary:

In the war against the Forces of Darkness, the Royals are losing. Princess Ivy is determined to end this centuries-long conflict once and for all, so her new battle partner must succeed where the others failed. Prince Zach’s unparalleled skill with a sword, enhanced by Ivy’s magic Kiss, should make them an unstoppable pair—but try convincing Zach of that.

 

Prince Zach has spent his life preparing for battle, but he would rather be branded a heretic than use his lips as nothing more than a way to transfer magic. A kiss is a symbol of love, and love is the most powerful weapon they have—but try convincing Ivy of that.

 

With the fate of their world on the line, the battlefield has become a testing ground, and only one of them can be right. Falling for each other wasn’t part of the plan—but try convincing their hearts of that.

About the Author

Lindsey Duga developed a deep love for courageous heroes, dastardly villains, and enchanting worlds from the cartoon shows, books, and graphic novels she read as a kid. Drawing inspiration from these fantastical works of fiction, she wrote her first novel in college while she was getting her bachelor’s in Mass Communication from Louisiana State University. By day, Lindsey is an account manager at a digital marketing agency based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. By night, and the wee hours of the morning, she writes both middle grade and young adult. She has a weakness for magic, anything classical, all kinds of mythology, and falls in love with tragic heroes. Other than writing and cuddling with her morkie puppy, Delphi, Lindsey loves catching up on the latest superhero TV show, practicing yoga, and listening (and belting) to her favorite music artists and show tunes. KISS OF THE ROYAL is her YA debut novel.

July 2018 TBR

So I’m going to try and start making monthly TBR’s. I’m not sure how well this will go because I tend to mood read. I’m only going to pick Seven books and then if I read more then great. I have a list of books and I’m going to use a random number generator to pick which books of the list to read.

  1. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K Rowling.
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling
  3. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo.
  4. The Palace Library by Steven Loveridge.
  5. The Girl who Lived by Christopher Greyson.
  6. Heartless by Marissa Meyer.
  7. His First Lie by Mark Hill.

There you have my tentative TBR that could be subject to change.
