The Orchid Throne by Jeff Kennedy is an Adult Fantasy which hit shelves today!
“A PRISONER OF FATE
As Queen of the island kingdom of Calanthe, Euthalia will do anything to keep her people
free—and her secrets safe—from the mad tyrant who rules the mainland. Guided by a magic ring of her father’s, Lia plays the political game with the cronies the emperor sends to her island. In her heart, she knows that it’s up to her to save herself from her fate as the emperor’s bride. But in her dreams, she sees a man, one with the power to build a better world—a man whose spirit is as strong, and whose passion is as fierce as her own…
A PRINCE AMONG MEN
Conrí, former Crown Prince of Oriel, has built an army to overthrow the emperor. But he needs the fabled Abiding Ring to succeed. The ring that Euthalia holds so dear to her heart. When the two banished rulers meet face to face, neither can deny the flames of rebellion that flicker in their eyes—nor the fires of desire that draw them together. But in this broken world of shattered kingdoms, can they ever really trust each other? Can their fiery alliance defeat the shadows of evil that threaten to engulf their hearts and souls?”

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
This is my first book from this author, and I think that if you are a fantasy romance fan, Jeffe Kennedy is a great choice to check out!
This fantasy combines political intrigue and clashing kingdoms with a slow-burn romance to top it off!
The world-building took a chunk of the book for me to really become invested, and there were moments when I felt antsy for something more to happen. But when it did, I was hooked!
I am excited to see where these characters take us in the sequel. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars due to the slower beginning BUT it doesn’t disappoint in the second half!!
