Now, using a newly-discovered spell, she binds her powers and flees again—this time for her life. Unfortunately, her plan to hide as a maid in a distant kingdom goes awry when she unwittingly gets entered into a festival competition for the hand of a prince—a man with a wicked kiss and a sense of adventure that rivals her own.
All she’s ever hoped for is a quiet existence as a servant, never imagining she could find laughter and belonging and love. And now the mischievous prince has her dreaming of all those things.
With a bounty on her head, sorcerers closing in, and a prince threatening to steal her heart, could it finally be time to stop running? Time to trust? Time to love?
Forbidden by Katrina Snow
Amazing debut novel, amazing premise and boy do I want more.
Katherine has magical powers in a world where magic users are reviled and burned at the stake. She has been a prisoner of her uncle’s ambitions for power and a pawn in his game for the throne. Escaping his mechanizations and turning her into a genie, Katherine runs to a neighborhood kingdom where she acts as a servant to her cousin (Princess Victoria) in a competition to become a royal’s bride.
Katherine spunk catches the seconds sons, Bregovi’s eye. He has her entered into the competition as the commoner’s entry to become his bride.
With the threat of her sorcery abilities being uncovered, Katherine is walking a tight rope. She’s trying to stay under the radar but can she contain her magic and keep her attraction for Bregovi at bay?
Snow balances funny and spunk with gruesome nightmares, evil sorcery, jousting and romance.
This may be my first read by Snow but it won’t be the last.
I received this copy of Forbidden from KL Andersen in exchange for a honest review.
