The Betrayed

We rated this book:


Hollis’s life has been upended by the heavy weight of following her heart. In one devastating moment, Hollis’s whole world came tumbling down around her, stripping away everyone she loved. Fleeing to Isolte was her only chance, and with the love of the Eastoffe family, Hollis quietly fell into a gentle rhythm. But Hollis would soon learn that a secret plan was afoot and the very family that saved her once would need Hollis’s help to save their country in return. Now, with news of a tyrant king and a family able to overthrow him and take the crown, Hollis will need to look within and find the strength to do what’s right while also facing the true desires of her heart.

The battle of heart versus duty to the crown comes to a close in the compelling conclusion, The Betrayed. Kiera Cass submerges her readers deep within a world of royalty, duty, honor, and heartache, while unapologetically giving readers a storyline that will make them think about each character and their motives. Cass once again delivers a strong female lead who will not yield when times are tough and is unwilling to bend through threats of sacrifice or death. In a world where love must take a backseat to the throne, The Betrayed delivers another option, giving readers a cause worth fighting for and a woman to stand behind.
