About the Book

Royal Decoy (Fate of Eyrinthia, #1)
by Heather Frost 
Release Date: June 18th 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance

You know nothing of sacrifice.

Heather Frost

A SERVANT blackmailed into becoming a princess’s decoy.
A BODYGUARD determined to keep her alive.

A PRINCE forced to execute his father’s brutal laws.
A PRISONER used to keep him compliant.

A WORLD on the brink of war.

She needed him more.

Heather Frost

In one horrible night, Clare goes from kitchen maid to royal decoy. She has three months to become the princess’s perfect double so she can ensure her betrothal to an enemy prince. Desperate to survive, Clare throws herself into self-defense training, taught by her distractingly attractive bodyguard. The danger increases when a ruthless assassin begins stalking her, intent on ending the tenuous peace.

Across the northern mountains, Prince Grayson is his father’s ultimate weapon. He carries out the king’s harsh orders because the one person he cares about is his father’s prisoner. Grayson’s silent obedience is tested when his father plans to exploit the marriage alliance between two of their greatest enemies. If Grayson submits, the blood of thousands will spill. If he resists, the girl who means everything to him will die.

The fate of Eyrinthia hangs in the balance. Some want peace. Some want war. All will be thrown into chaos.

She was good. Pure. And she had given him every good moment in his life.

Heather Frost

Review

So, I avoided books on royals for far too long. My issue was that I read WAY TOO MANY at one time and kind of overindulged in them. But this past year I’ve been slowly incorporating them back into my reading and I’m so glad I decided to do this. Because boy have I been missing out on some good books! And Royal Decoy was everything that I love to see in a book on royals and political intrigue.

Patience. Your time will come. Be careful.

Heather Frost

This story hooks you and draws you in. It’s just such an enjoyable read and perfect to curl up under some blankets with. The characters are all enjoyable to read about, which is something hard to find when the story revolves around multiple characters. I also just really love the mix of fantasy and royalty. If done correctly/well, like in this book, then they’re the perfect combination to read about. But what I think I loved most about this book is that it was so refreshing. It took themes that can sometimes feel too common and reworked them into something entirely new and entertaining.

Don’t apologize. I enjoyed every moment.

Heather Frost

The only downside is that I have to wait for the next book in the series. I’ve really enjoyed everything that I’ve picked up from Frost and I’m always excited to see what she comes up next. And the Fate of Eyrinthia series definitely promises to be another amazing series that I will gladly binge!

About the Author

Heather Frost writes mostly YA fiction and has a soft spot for tortured characters, breath-stealing romance, and happy endings. She is the author of the Seers trilogy. She has a BS in Creative Writing and a minor in Folklore, which means she got to read fairy tales and ghost stories and call it homework.

When she’s not writing, Heather likes to read, travel, and hold Lord of the Rings movie marathons. She owns two typewriters, sings in the car, and dreams of living in a castle someday. She currently lives in a beautiful valley surrounded by towering mountains in the wilds of Utah.
