Allies & Assassins by Justin Somper

Prince Anders, the ruler of Archenfield, has been murdered, leaving his younger brother, Jared, to ascend the throne. Sixteen-year-old Jared feels unprepared to rule the kingdom and its powerful and dangerous court, yet he knows he can rely on the twelve officers of the court to advise him. He also knows he can just as easily be at their mercy-especially when it appears that one of them may be responsible for his brother's death. Unable to trust anyone, Jared takes it upon himself to hunt down his brother's killer-but the killer may be hunting him, as well. Murder, betrayal, and intrigue abound in Justin Somper's thrilling YA series debut. Exploring the political machinations of the medieval court and the lives that hang in the balance, Allies & Assassins is a gripping tale of a teen torn between duty and revenge. @goodreads



This book was pretty good! From the name of the book and the front cover I was thinking all of this was going to go on!



But no this is about Prince Anders being assassinated and his brother, the new Prince Jared trying to find out what is going on.

Come to find out, there are a lot of different people for different reasons that wanted the old prince dead and now the new prince.

There were many times I wanted to slap some sense into people!!!!!!!!

And right from the start of the book I wanted to be off with a head. What is it with me and getting these people? His name is Axel and I say.......

Trust me, if you read the book and meet him, you will be saying the same thing!

I really loved Nova at the beginning of the book, but they never really talked about her any more until the end, which sucks. She's the Falconer that sends messages all over the kingdom for the Prince.


Hopefully she will be in the next book.

My favorite characters in this book are Asta, she's the niece and assistant to the Prince's Physician. And I loved Prince Jared, he had to take over and rule after his brothers death at the age of 16 and was thrown into all of this conflict, but he seemed to do a really good job and started figuring out you can't really trust anyone. Although, I wanted to smack him a time or two :)

I have the next book on my Amazon wish list and we will see where this is going.. by the way this one ended.. all hell is going to break loose!
