My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The third lost princess. The final key to the treasure. And a battle for the throne.
Growing up deep in the forest as a poor charcoal burner’s daughter, Emmeline has always known her identity as a princess of Mercia, and she lives in fear of being caught and killed. When her adopted father returns from town with news regarding the imminence of war, Emmeline has no wish to join the rebellion against King Ethelwulf.
Prince Ethelrex, the strongest warrior in the land, has done everything he can to prove his loyalty to his father, including searching for the last lost princess. When Ethelrex finally captures Emmeline, the king commands his son to marry the princess in order to win the support of the people and undermine the rebellion.
Forced into marriage, Emmeline has one goal—to escape. But Ethelrex takes his marriage vows seriously, including his promise to love and cherish his wife, and has no intention of letting Emmeline get away. As the battle for the throne rages, will the prince be able to win the battle for Emmeline’s heart?
Hereafter is the third and final installment from Jody Hedlund young adult series, The Lost Princesses. I loved this book, even though, I am sad to say goodbye to the series. Emmeline and Ethelrex had wonderful chemistry from the start. I had no problem having this whole tale read in one sitting.
I give Hereafter a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend this book, as well as, the rest of the series for readers who love a sweet, clean, adventurous story.
I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
