My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There’s still no King of England and England and Britain aren’t the same thing but that’s just my own niggle about when people set a book in in this world but then Americanise it or mix stuff up.
The romance itself, however, is simply divine, full of rich characters in a world which is beautifully drawn out and filled with detail which does give the sense of just how bizarre it has to be to step into a life of eternal scrutiny.
Ben’s uncertainty was wholly believable and the way in which his fears were dealt with and overcome was superbly done. The epilogue was incredibly sweet and I would kill for a book three after James has become King.
