Long May She Reign
Freya was never meant be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.

As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown.

I've never read any books by Rhiannon Thomas, so this seems like a great place to start! I think this sounds like it has a lot of potential and I am always interesting in some good political intrigue - and the protagonist would "rather research in her laboratory"? I'm interested!

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?


  1. I am reading this one right now and it is SO GOOD. I read A Wicked Thing as well, and was really surprised by my reaction: I loved it! Thomas has a very easy-to-follow writing style and very feminist characters.

  2. This sounds amazing and honestly I ADORE that cover ♥ I hope you'll love it!! xx
