Royal Decoy is a brand new gripping fantasy set in a world of royals. The story revolves around Clare who goes from kitchen maid to royal decoy. She sets on a journey to save all but most importantly find love.
The plot was really diverse and yet very gripping. It was quite charming on it’s own and did not have to depend on characters or any other elements to shine. I really was not expecting it to be one of those plot which would always keep me on my toes. But, I was proved wrong! The plot was extraordinary!
“You know nothing of sacrifice.”
The characters were quite interesting as well. I liked the character developments throughout. It was quite smooth and well paced as well.
The writing style of Heather Frost really surprised me! I mean I did not have much high expectations as usually many cannot really pull off the whole fantasy genre. But, I was proved wrong! Heather Frost really blew me away! I really admire her writing! And I can’t wait to see more growth in her writing style now!
