Review: Monarch by Belle Whittington (Tour Stop)

Blair Reynolds was born to rule. Worlds, that is. Destined to reign over an ancient intergalactic race, it may seem her fate is written in the stars. But she’s willing to risk it all for another chance to spend forever with her true love – even if it means traveling through time and space to the other side of the universe.

As far as Ash is concerned, Blair's happily-ever-after involves him, not the mere mortal with whom she seems so infatuated. She was bequeathed to him by her fatherand Ash will go to any lengths to keep Blair and her true love apart.

And Ash isn’t the only one.

Deep in the jungles of Brazil, where tribal drums call to Blair and her true love, other forces carry out dangerous secret plans.

However, Blair has secrets of her own … secrets so lethal she dares not even remember them.
Secrets so painful they could ruin everything.

Because some secrets kill.

My  Review

Not only is Monarch an excellent conclusion to Whittington's addictive trilogy, but it is an altogether wonder novel. I couldn't get enough of the story, and found myself tearing through the pages, overly eager to discover what would happen next. It's a stunning novel. Achingly beautiful. I enjoyed every minute of reading.

It's not often that a concept manages to combine an absolutely lovely romance with a brilliant science fiction, but Monarch does that. I loved the alien history that was incorporated into the novel. It built up a race that felt truly authentic and almost believable! In addition, the romance is on point. If you are a bit of a hopeless romantic when it comes to your fiction (it's okay, I'm right there with you), fear not. You will not be disappointed!

I adored the plot of Monarch, as it kept me guessing the entire time (and, to be honest, I was quite often wrong). There are more that enough twists, turns and reveals to keep readers invested in the novel. On top of that, the characters are all intriguing. Blair is a great protagonist and it's very exciting to see her inner conflict. Not to it just be or does Ash have some awesome quotes?

I loved Monarch and Whittington's entire trilogy. Without a doubt, I recommend.
