Realm of Knights by Jennifer Anne Davis is a YA Fantasy of secrets, fighting, and kingdoms.
“Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.
In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.
Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border. Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.
To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.”
If you love the typical, YA Fantasy with a strong female lead this is a great series to start!
We follow a girl who tries to hide her gender in order to inherit her father’s inheritance. But the struggle to keep the secret gets harder and harder as she has to fight for everything.
I will say that the plot felt a little predictable, BUT it was a lot of fun to read through. There’s action and intensity that I love reading in YA Fantasy.
I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars.
