Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.
In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So whe. RIED Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.
Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soliders to the border. Along the way, she discovers a coverg organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.
To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.
I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book but I am glad that decided to give it a try and read it. I started the book on Sunday and finished it Monday afternoon, it usually takes me a while to finish books because I am slow reader and depending how the book can hold my attention. This story did keep me wanting to continue to read it.
The story sort of reminded me of Mulan but then difference is that Reid is forced to play the role of man because of her father not having a son heir passed his title and lands to upon his death. If anyone would find out that Lord Reid is Lady Reid, her father will be charged with treason and everything would be strip from her family so she has to be careful to play her role well. But there are complications when the royal Princes come knocking at her father’s door for assistance and one of the Prince find out she is actually women. They recruit her to help the King and the kingdom to fight their enemies. She finds out that nothing seems to be what she was told.
Reid remind me of Arya from Game of Thrones because of the way she carry herself and the way she was dedicated in her family. The story was fast paced and easy read but I would have like more world building. The ending of the book wasn’t what I expect but it was definitely a nice surprise.
Overall, I really enjoy the book and I am dying to know what happens in the next book with Reid and the rest of players in series.
