Five-hundred years bloody of civil war ends in massacre or redemption based on the heart of one actress who never wanted this power. 
Kascia is shattered when they ask her to join the Enthronement. She wanted nothing more than her planned out life performing at the theater and marrying the man she'd been betrothed to since she was a young girl. But she's left broken and unsure of her existence when the men in her life, who should have loved her, pressure her to join the Enthronement – a contest to prove one girl a true princess and marry the crown prince – so she can let her father's rebels in to assassinate the royal family. 

But Kascia loses all confidence in the truths she once held dear as she enters the palace and find the royal family are not the greedy slobs she'd believed whose ancestors had started a 500-year long civil war by raising the taxes to insane rates all at once. Taxes that are still in place. She doesn't just find the prince innocent and endearing, but the king is more a lovable slightly inappropriate grandfather than a hard-fisted tyrant. The queen isn't a cold overload but an elegant though overbearing mother anxious to protect her family and her people. 

Can Kascia let her father assassinate the royal family when they aren't what the people believe? If the royal family aren't encouraging the bloodshed, who is? Or is there a reason this spark between them is forbidden? 

Kascia must find the answers in time. But can she before the time runs out? Or will the blood be on her hands when the war kills every last man, woman, and child left in Purerah? 

The Enthronement is a young adult fantasy romance with dystopian and dark fantasy elements is sure to delight fans of The Hunger Games, The Enthronement, and Matched. Don't miss this best-selling fairytale retelling of The Princess and the Pea.

What I liked:
The Enthronement is a politically based royalty story that involves rebels, love, and competition. Charity Mae's worldbuilding descriptions of the old city, the palace, and horse draw carriages set the stage. She adds touches of magic and modern inventions like cameras (but calls them impressions), and her characters are fierce and raw.
Final Verdict:
Kascia is a raw, fierce character who feels as if she has lost her identity as a person and becomes the pawn that is prodded, poked, and played with tell she falls in line. Kascia finds that politics aren't always simple, this or that choice. We are either coaching from the sidelines or looking down from on high, and neither side fully sees the whole picture and a fair path to peace. If you're looking for a romanticly filled drama with political tension and a fantasy, pick up the enthronement today.
