Story summary: Don't want to spoil too much from the end of the previous book. So I'll leave it vague: The royal family still has difficulties with forgetting who they are, the colours are still attacking in larger and larger numbers, and there are yet more political factions with their own agenda. How are the Royal Youth Alliance and a girl from Cambridge going to save the whole Kingdom?
Sequel to the other The Colours of Madeleine books: A Corner of White and The Cracks in the Kingdom.1
- Complicated human relationships
- Dysfunctional but interesting and realistic families
- Unique and beautiful fantasy world
- Strange and unexpected plots twists
- It's the kind of book that makes me want to research all these historical figures (huge plus for me)
- The writing is somewhat stylized, in a way which usually doesn't work at all for me, so I can see it not working well for someone else
- I liked the plot twists as well, but I did see many of them coming ahead of time.
