Book Description:

From the author of The Silver & Orchids Series comes a breathtaking tale of two kingdoms torn apart by magic and the star-crossed lovers who set upon a perilous journey to reunite them before they fall into ruin.

Enter the world of The Riven Kingdoms.

After the sudden death of her brother, Princess Amalia is charged with what feels like an impossible task—she must choose the next king. Youthful thoughts of love are pushed aside as she accepts her fate, setting upon a quest throughout the kingdom to find a man worthy of her father’s throne.

Little does Amalia know, someone has already set his sights on her.

Rhys is a man of secrets, and his mission is simple: befriend the princess of Renove. Coax her to trust him, convince her to follow him.

Betray her when it’s time.

All goes according to plan until Rhys meets the princess. Amalia is a disaster. Never has he met someone so drawn to trouble. Never has he met someone so irritatingly likable.

He’s not allowed to fall for her.

She could never entrust him with a crown.

But, unbeknownst to them, their unlikely partnership might be the key to saving their entire world from a darkness that’s slowly creeping from the wounded earth that separates one kingdom from the next.

My Review:

Forest of Firelight is a delightful story with lots of feels, but has treachery too, which keeps it exciting. This is a truly entertaining read with some witty banter and danger at every turn. Will Amalia fall in love with her self-appointed guardian Rhys, or will she discover his secrets before her feelings grow too strong? This is a first in a series with some big reveals at the end. I felt that the ending was too rushed and that it was a bit of an information dump. However, at least it doesn’t leave you hanging and you know there will be more good feels up ahead!
