#BookReview: Realm of Knights (Knights of the Realm #1) by @AuthorJennifer


Synopsis: Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.

In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.

Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border. Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.

To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.

My Review: This gender hiding story is one that you won't soon forget.  We learn and follow Reid who has had to pretend to be a male for her entire life.  I really loved that this story was more plot than romance.  To many times in young adult stories authors overdo the romance when its not needed.  So I was so happy when this one didn't do that. For me the pacing was a little off and it took a little while to really get into the story.  But overall the story was one that I am glad I read and better yet I didn't have to wait a year for the next titles so score!!
