Waiting on Wednesday: Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Publication Date: February 21st 2017
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: YA, Fantasy 

Synopsis: The Girl of Fire and Thorns meets The Queen of the Tearling in this thrilling fantasy standalone about one girl’s unexpected rise to power.

Freya was never meant be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.
Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.
As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown.

  8. I cannot wait to get this one from my local library. I love the idea of a normal girl being thrown onto throne instead of fighting or upstarting a rebellion. Great pick this week Aneta! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. :)

    1. Agreed! I just finished reading Queen of the Tearling, and I loved it. This one sounds sort of similar but very different at the same time. I'm sure we'll both love it :)
