    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Queen Everleigh Blair of Bellona has survived the mass murder of the royal family, become a fearsome warrior trained by an elite gladiator troupe, and unleashed her ability to destroy magic. After surviving yet another assassination attempt orchestrated by the conniving king of Morta, Evie has had enough. It's time to turn the tables and take the fight to her enemies. There is no better opportunity to strike than during the Regalia Games, a time when warriors, nobles, and royals from all the kingdoms come together to compete in various sporting events. With the help of her loyal friends, Evie goes on the attack at the Regalia, but things don't turn out the way she hopes. Soon, she is facing a terrifying new threat, and she will have to dig deep and learn even more about her growing magic if she has any chance of defeating her foes. Because to secure her throne and ensure her kingdom's survival, Evie must think like a true Bellonan: she must outsmart and outwit her enemies . . . and crush the king."--Publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2020 February #1

Ever since the King of Morta conspired with her cousin Vasilia to kill Queen Cordelia and eliminate the complete Blair line, Evie has vowed revenge on King Maximus and his family. Evie finally finds her chance when the Regalia Games commence. Royalty and subjects from all the kingdoms are there competing in various tests of strength and skill. There are also royal balls and parties and, par for the course for Evie, assassins. Using every bit of her own cunning and political acumen, Evie seeks alliances and a way to crush the King of Morta, playing the long game as generations of Blairs have done before her. Estep has crafted another winner in the Crown of Shards series (beginning with Kill the Queen, 2018). Evie is as headstrong and loyal as ever, and almost all of the series' fan favorite characters return, including Maven, illegitimate sister to Maximus, whose evil character gets a little more shading to make motives clear. This addicting series remains a fun thrill a minute and is highly recommended. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Queen Everleigh Blair of Bellona has survived the Seven Spire massacre, assassination attempts, and other battles on her unexpected journey to the throne. Making allies with other nations is crucial at this juncture as she is faced with the growing threat of war with Morta, whose king murdered Evie's family. Now Evie is bringing her best fighters to the Regalia Games on foreign soil, hoping to bring the other royal families to her side, while plotting her own vengeance against King Maximus and his Band of Bastards, and keeping her subjects and loved ones safe from harm. She just has to survive the games first. VERDICT Estep (Protect the Prince) knows how to create strong and relatable fantasy female leads. Evie's rise into her power in deeds and magic is a fabulous, inspiring read. Solid writing, bold characters, and action-filled sequences create an exciting finish for this trilogy.
