Publisher Description

A Court of Thorns and Roses meets The Fourth Wing in this pulse-pounding, enemies-to-lovers fantasy romance—with fae magic, high-stakes trials, and a dark prince—from Booktok favorite author Nisha J. Tuli. 

Ten women. A deadly contest. Only one can win the Sun King's heart.

Lor has endured twelve long years of torment under the Aurora King’s rule. Her only desire is to escape and pay him back for every moment of misery she's endured.

When a surprise release finds her in the hands of the rival Sun King, Lor is thrust into the spotlight as she competes against nine other Tributes for the role of queen. If she wins his heart, she'll earn her freedom and finally get her revenge.

But Lor doesn't belong in the Sun Queen Trials. Not only does she not understand why she was freed, she isn’t a citizen of the Sun King’s court. The other Tributes resent her presence and will stop at nothing to ensure Lor is removed from the competition, permanently.

Now Lor must win, because if she loses, she dies. Or worse, she'll be returned to the evil—and now vengeful—Aurora King.

Thumbs Up“I enjoyed reading this book and will continue the series. There are still questions needing answers.”

Thumbs Up“I enjoyed the book although I didn’t buy the romance between Lor and Atlas due to how surface level it was. Maybe if he tried to know more about her as a person instead of just telling her over and over how much he wanted her, the plot would have seemed less predictable. Her warden, Gabriel, had better chemistry with her even though he was sometimes a bit violent in the beginning. The Lor set up in the beginning seemed to get lost later in wanting to jump Atlas’s bones, fighting other girls over him, and being insecure that she seemed to lose focus on why she really wanted to win. I thought Atlas would have to work hard to get her trust. I rated 3 stars because it was a good easy read with plenty of action so although I didn’t have to think while reading this, I’m curious enough to read the next book. I liked the banter between Lor and Gabriel. Hopefully the next book will have more world building because the kingdoms mentioned so far seem interesting.”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I really enjoyed this book. I’m a little over the whole women being in a competition for a king, but I was a fan of how the MFC grew into herself. Definitely happy the trials ended by the end of the book so the series isn’t just about trials. Excited to read the next series in the book to see what happens.”
