Inhaltsangabe zu "Ash Princess"

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed Ash Princess.

When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can't ignore her feelings and memories any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser's warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn't expect to develop feelings for the Prinz.

Forced to make impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she's willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she's willing to sacrifice to become Queen.

From author Laura Sebastian comes Ash Princess, a nail-biting YA fantasy debut full of daring and vengeance.

    Kurzmeinung: solid YA novel.
    Good YA - I would have liked a bit more fantasy

    "Ash Princess" is the story of Theo, whose mother was killed during a siege when Theo was six years old. Although her life has been spared, it's a living hell, as she is held prisoner at court, only to be taunted and punished by the Kaiser for his amusement. But before she gives herself and her country up completely, hope emerges in form of her childhood friend Blaise and he manages to ignite that spark in Theo that she needs in order to leave her ash princess life behind and aspire to become the queen she's meant to be.

    I was actually ready to buy the second book in the series (if only it had been written already!), so the book certainly captured me. However, it is definitely more YA than I thought it would be. I would have wished for more fantastical elements or see more of what the magic can do, but then I guess the author wanted / needed to keep some things for the book(s?) to come.

    I look forward to the next one and hope it can carry me further. (No pressure!)
