Daphne still has her sights on Jefferson and gets Ethan to distract Nina so she can make her move. Nina is hesitant with Ethan because he's Jefferson's best friend, but she likes how she doesn't have to hide with him. She can be herself, even if she's playing into Daphne's hand. Daphne will still do anything to get what she wants. It doesn't matter who she has to stand against, not even her best friend or the other person who is the only one who wants to remain at her side no matter how heinous she is.
MAJESTY is a giant flip flop of relationships. It's why this book is 3.5 stars to me and felt more like a standalone. I love the forbidden relationships between Connor and Beatrice and Nina and Jefferson in the first one. In MAJESTY, the main characters kind of fall in line to conformity it feels like, except for Sam. I love Sam and Marshall's relationship and how it started. To me, this was the best development and I love both of their characters. Teddy is still willing to do what's right and is sweet, but it's hard not seeing him with Sam. I love the idea of Nina and Ethan in a relationship, but it's weird after everything we saw in the first one. I do wish we saw more of Jefferson as well.
Final Verdict: Overall, MAJESTY is a whirlwind of relationships and friendships. It's a story of coming to age and Beatrice accepting what she has to do for America with her title of Queen. I love the female power in this one and as always, dislike Daphne. For fans of romance and drama like Gossip Girl and stories like that, you won't want to miss this one.
