As the princess of Mortisali, all the rules have changed for Cassandra Collier. Not that she's always followed them, life doesn't work that way, even for a royal. With a wedding to plan and a future to start, everything that once seemed important to Cass slowly takes the back burner as a mystery begins to unfold. Unfortunately, the clock is ticking; the enemy is quite literally knocking at the gates, and there's a wolf among the sheep who has the potential to bring the palace down around them. Destiny is calling. Time is running out. Tick. Tock.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

Dishonored is the third fantastic story in this series, and we continue where we left off. Now, it's been a while since I read the other books, but I was immediately drawn back into their world, and knew exactly what was going on with the characters. That, to me, is the sign of a great book/series.

Everyone's character still remains true, in other words, they are not suddenly acting strange after all this time. The world-building is once again perfect. For me though, what makes this book outstanding are the relationships between the characters - all the characters, not just the main ones. Seeing Cas with Damon, Rasmus, Grigori, Shannon, Alexa, and the rest, makes it all the more... everything.

The pacing is on point, with it moving fast enough to keep my attention, but not too fast that I get lost with what is going on. The story continues to have it's twists and turns, with intrigue layered upon that. There is a shock in here, toward the end, that I never saw coming. I couldn't see much after that either, as my eyes were leaking!

What an ending! Seriously.

I really can't emphasise how much I am enjoying this series, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it, but you MUST read it as a series, not a set of standalones. Bring on the next, I really need to find out where Ras has disappeared to!

L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore. Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there's more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn't mean there aren't stories to tell. She now has too many. When she's not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.
