The Betrothed

By: Kiera Cass

The young king of Coroa has never been the type to settle down—that is, until he meets Hollis Brite.

Hollis has grown up at the castle, among the other daughters of nobility who hoped beyond hope that they’d catch the king’s eye. So when King Jameson declares his love for her, Hollis is shocked—and thrilled.

But she soon realizes that along with the extravagant presents and fawning attention, this new life brings outsized expectations—expectations that make her wonder if she’s really cut out for life as a royal. And when she meets an Isolten stranger with the mysterious power to see right into her heart, she starts to wonder: Is there more to life outside the palace walls?

Lady Hollis Brite is destined to be royalty and her family is ready to seal the deal with a proposal from King Jameson. While she enjoys his company, her true love is a commoner named Silas Eastsoffe who comes to Coroa with his family. Silas and Hollis hit it off romantically from the beginning. The action in the story is slow at first with a lot o Lady Hollis Brite is destined to be royalty and her family is ready to seal the deal with a proposal from King Jameson. While she enjoys his company, her true love is a commoner named Silas Eastsoffe who comes to Coroa with his family. Silas and Hollis hit it off romantically from the beginning. The action in the story is slow at first with a lot of pages devoted to developing the characters and setting. This pacing helps the story feel regal and devoted to the courtship between Hollis and Jameson. There is no doubt that Jameson intends to make Hollis his queen, even though her heart is drawn to Silas. The action comes later, delivering a cliffhanger as Hollis leaves to question the ruler of another kingdom. Like Cass’s previous female protagonists, Hollis is a strong character, and proves to be a good role model with little fear who knows what she wants to accomplish. Fans of “The Selection” series will anxiously await the second installment of this duology to learn Hollis’s fate.
