The Secret Heir (Dynasty #1) By M.J Prince

ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. 

When I first started reading this book I did not expect myself to enjoy it as much as I did. It didn’t start off on the right foot with me but as I let myself be taken into the world of Eden, the world that the author M.J Prince created, I soon fell in love with the characters, setting and the whole luxury and richness that the world was created with.

I guess the real reason I loved this book was because it was like every single book was merged into one single fabulous novel. The luxury and beauty of the story reminded me of the A Court Of Thorns And Roses series by Sarah J Maas and the enemies to lovers romance reminded me of that of Pride And Prejudice . It was everything and I loved it so much. 

The book is about a girl called Jazmine who feels as if she doesn’t belong. Not in her foster home or anywhere on Earth for that matter. Then after a shocking revelation, Jazmine discovers that she is the heir to the Evenstar dynasty, one of the seven dynasty’s of Eden. She needs to learn her place in her new world but it’s not easy when everyone is trying to make her life miserable. Especially the handsome Raphael St. Tristan, heir to the throne and the reigning sovereign St. Tristan dynasty who promises to break her and shatter her.

When the book started as I said, I was not sure if I would enjoy it. The first few pages were slow paced during the period of time Jazmine was on Earth as a waitress. But as soon as the magical world of Eden was revealed I suddenly became more interested and immersed.

One of the best parts of this book was how the author M.J Prince added new dimensions to each characters. I loved Jazmine. I love how she was so tough and didn’t let haters get to her. She had a hard life living in ten foster homes throughout her life and she had no family to care for her until she finds her long lost grandfather. The author, M.J Prince clearly shown that even though she is tough, she makes mistakes. Even the other characters seemed to have more than meets the eye making this a book to look out for.

I can’t wait for the sequel. My hands are itching to read it as soon as it’s released because I loved it that much. In the next book you can probably expect a shocking cliff-hanger (M.J Prince is extremely good at this as well) but I think that she could develop the world even more in the second book than she did in the first book. This series definitely has potential and I recommend this to any romance and fantasy lover out there.
