Allegiance (Legacy #2) by Cayla Kluver

Goodreads|Amazon|Book Depository

Only I saw Narian for who he truly was: a young man with courage and an independent mind, and made to pay for what was outside his control. He couldn't help his past any more than he could help the way those intense, deep-blue eyes pierced me and held me captive.

An eighteen-year-old queen in love with the enemy as their countries pass the point of no return...

Bound to a man she cannot love, Queen Alera of Hytanica must forget Narian, the young man who holds her heart. For Narian is destined to conquer Hytanica at the behest of his master, the powerful magic-user known as the Overlord. Alera doesn't truly believe Narian will fight against Hytanica-until Cokyrian troops attack with Narian commanding the charge.

Faced with the greatest betrayal a heart can know, Alera must set aside personal feelings and lead her kingdom through its darkest time. And when all hope, will and courage seem lost, she must find strength and remember that even the blackest night must have a dawn....


Allegiance (Legacy, #2)Allegiance by Cayla Kluver

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The only thing I have to say about Allegiance is this - it was fantastic! Books like Allegiance are the reason I love to read - it takes me to another world! When it comes to a series, I usually try to get my hands on the previous books so I can read them in order but didn't have the time to do that with this one. So yeah, I haven't read Legacy yet but still thoroughly enjoyed Allegiance!

This is a magnificent historical fiction that revolves around two kingdoms, war, love and royalty. Really, what more do you need? Alera is an excellent character - loyal, strong and valiant but also has the flaws that go with the lack of maturity that any young girl would face. Kluver has created an amazing world full of secrecy, jealousy, love and betrayal. I was utterly captivated!

This is the first time where I haven't read the first book and still got really involved/attached to the characters. I have to say, Kluver's writing is exceptional. I guess this may not be for everyone, but I'm a sucker for royalty and court drama which is why it's no surprise that I love Tudors (yeah, I'm referring to the TV show).

All I can now think of is, I HAVE to get my hands on Legacy!
