The writting style was engaging and relatively free of errors.
The book didn't leave off on what could technically be called a "cliff hanger"... but there was no resolution to any ongoing issues in the book and the ending seemed really random. So, you will have to read the next book in order to find out what happens (which I won't do because I don't trust that the next book won't randomly end in the same way or that it will provide resolution).
I encourage the author to keep writing because her style is pleasant to read... But I'd also say that she needs lessons in how to properly pace her stories.
Also, things happen in the book that I felt should have impacted it more. For example:
The main character is raped (do not read this if you have rape triggers) but it doesn't seem to affect her much or for very long because she ends up right in bed with the prince shortly after without suffering any major hangups or lingering trauma from her experience.
A maid looses a hand for theft and the main character (while horrified) doesn't really mention that maid again (aside from remembering her fate briefly)or seem to feel any bitterness or resentment towards her prince for how he didn't/doesn't fight the injustices going on under his roof with more determination.
Was this purposely done?
It seemed like a random mishmash of fluff and a more serious type of book to me.
Some aspects were very vague and childish (like what you'd find in what I'd call "fluff" - the type of book you only read it for romance and sex and don't nitpick the plot holes because of that fact) and others felt like they were supposed to be more brutal or carry more weight (more something you'd find in an "adult" book where plot holes or loose strings are far less likely to be ignored...and yet they WERE ignored).
So, two stars for the writing itself (descriptions, pretty prose, and limited errors) and a no more stars because the plot was placed poorly, the ending was completely random and abrupt, and I often felt confused as to whether I was reading fluff of something meant to be taken more seriously (and failing).
I encourage the author to keep trucking...and hope she does better in future. She has promise to be a good writer, but isn't quite there yet.
