Narian is initially captured by the palace guards as a spy from an enemy kingdom, but is eventually discovered to be the son of a noble family that was long since thought to be dead. Alera begins to secretly meet with Narian, who tells her of life in the other kingdom and the two begin to fall in love. Despite this, Alera is forced to marry Steldor while Narian is condemned as a traitor. She finds herself unable to love him and equally unable to forget Narian, the one she truly loves. This provokes conflicted emotions in her, as she knows that Narian is destined to conquer her kingdom for the magic user Overlord, the ruler of the rival kingdom Cokyrian.

Then I made my bed by folding my quilt, and squaring the corners. After that, I squeezed my fresh, minty-smelling green toothpaste onto my blue-and-white toothbrush and brushed my teeth. Then I went into the kitchen where I used my favourite 1 litre saucepan to make tea. I brewed my tea for about two minutes before straining it and adding milk.

Then I added sugar and drank my tea slowly, flicking through the morning paper. I was wearing blue and yellow striped pajamas, and pink bunny slippers. Cayla Kluver is a debut author with little to no experience, and it shows. For some unfathomable reason, Harlequin Teen appears to have picked up a self-pubbed teen author and given her a book contract, subsequently releasing an ARC, all without ever editing the book!!!
This is very clearly a book written by a novice, and one that has never been edited. Why, oh why, would you put it out into the world? So, the story. To be honest, I read about a quarter of the book and then just sort of skimmed. Nothing I read later led me to believe the book got any better, so I feel no guilt about my speed-reading. As a Princess she is taught to wander around the palace aimlessly for the most part, occassionally relieving the tedium by attending birthday and tea parties.
Then an enemy from the neighbouring kingdom of Cokyria attacks her, and suddenly she discovers that- yes! The End. The writing. Oh the poor words, they were writhing in pain on the page, overflowing with abundant sorrow. Like every rookie, Kluver feels the need to describe Every. Of course, this is not necessarily a failure unique to rookies. For example, no one ever walks from the ballroom to the garden, oh no!
Then they go through the gates guarded by two Palace Guards, who announce them to the other palace guards in the garden, and finally you are out in the garden, filled with the scent of jasmine and rose.
The characters are flat and uni-dimensional, for the most part. The plot has more holes that Swiss cheese. Firstly, there is a completely unnecessary prologue that sort of smacks you in the face with all the info required to read the book.
Forget working the backstory into the plot, you can just dump it all into two pages of prologue- easy peasy! Also, stupid and pretty selfish. The language is stilted and unnatural, struggling to balance an archaic turn of phrase with relatably-modern idioms. Someday, with time, and effort and maturity, this will be a book worthy of being published.
As it stands, it is obviously the product of a young, unformed mind with neither the technical skills nor the life experience required to write a largely palatable book.

Across the land of Hytanica, under the shadow of the crimson moon, infant boys continued to vanish. Not until the blood had faded from the sky did the disappearances stop and the bodies of the murdered infants were found outside the gates of the city, a final word from the greatest enemy Hytanica had ever known. For the next sixteen years, peace reigned, but one mystery remained unsolved.
