This cover is absolutely gorgeous and even prettier in person. I’ve never read Jennifer A. Nielsen’s The False Prince series, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about it so I was intrigued when I saw the blurb for her newest book.

The Traitor’s Game was very similar to many other books in the YA fantasy genre. It was full of all of the same cliches and tropes, down to the somewhat predictable ending and romance. However, the book did manage to keep my attention and I never grew bored or impatient while reading, which is a huge plus. And although there was a bit of insta-love, the romance wasn’t overwhelming to the story and didn’t present much of an issue. I was also really glad that there was no love triangle, something that is way too common for this genre. Overall, it was a pleasant reading experience and I look forward to continuing the series!
