The Royal Trials, Imposter

theroyaltrialsimposterThe Royal Trials, Imposter.
Written by Tate James.

I have waited for this book for some time, and finally got the chance to read it today. And it was good, totally worth the wait.

You will meet Rybet Waise, a thief and a mercenary. She has to save a friend from the dungeons of the royal palace. Should be easy for someone with her skill set.

Only she finds herself pulled into the Royal Trials, a competition to find a wife for one of the princes. It should be easy to get out of there, right?
The trials aren’t what they look like to the outside, behind every smile and polished face there is a terrible truth. Because if you fail these trials, you don’t go home, you don’t even make it out of the palace alive.

When the harsh reality sinks in, Rybet needs every skill she has to stay alive.
She has to deal with people wanting her dead, her boss wanting her to succeed for his own goals and keeping herself alive to get out if this mess. How will she survive?
