Sixteen-year-old Piper Parish, princess of the loveless, STEM-only kingdom of Capalon, is a disappointment to her citizens and to her older sister, the queen. When Piper receives an anonymous note stating her mother is still alive and living in the enemy kingdom of Mondaria, Piper chooses to risk death in effort to prove once and for all that she's not just the queen's defective little sister. With the companionship of Chip, a piece of tech embedded in her wrist, Piper flees Capalon and enters a world where love and emotional expression are unrestricted. Posing as a singer for the enemy king’s court of performers, the King’s 100, Piper risks death if she is revealed to be the Capalon princess, but discovers that living a life without the freedom to love might actually be the most dangerous risk of all. The King’s 100 is a glittering sci-fi love story woven among the camaraderie singers, drummers and magicians by debut author, Karin Biggs.

What I liked:
A science nonemotional driven kingdom vs. a true emotional realm with a princess who is missing her mother escapes to find her and instead discovers more than she expected. The uniqueness of this story with its science tech, exciting competition, and wide variety of characters makes for a very satisfying escape from reality. The teenage characters act like teens in this indie book, making it come to life as you read about Piper and her desperate attempt to figure out an alien world in her science-educated mind.
Final Verdict:
The ending felt rushed as we came to a neck-breaking cliffhanger and a few vast reveals. The book is left open-ended, which leads me to believe that there is a series brewing on the horizon. If you are in the mood for a fun, light-hearted ya-read with a lovely slow-burn romance and unique worldbuilding, this may be the one you need.
