Today I am reviewing A Treacherous Decision, the second book (but 4th story) in the Order of the MoonStone series, by one of my favorite new authors, JC Morrows.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Kayden’s mission should have been simple — she was sent to kill the prince . . . not to fall in love with him.
Within the palace walls, Kayden has discovered that things are not as she expected.
Is there more to the royal family . . . or is there a more sinister depth to Drey’s mission?
Dvarius thought his mind was made up — but will he have the resolve to see it through?
Between attacks from outside the palace — and within, will the Prince live long enough to choose his Queen?
And will Kayden choose to follow her head . . . or her heart, knowing that her decision could very well make her a target as well!

JC Morrows is an amazing writer!
I was drawn into this story immediately — Kayden lying on a hospital bed, with Dvarius sitting beside her, not knowing if she would recover. Oh, my goodness!
I felt as if I were in the room with them — and I didn’t stop reading until the end. Actually, I was perched on the edge of my chair — unable to sit still, at least through the first few chapters.
I was thrilled to learn that book two picks up where book one ended — with Kayden getting stabbed!
I read somewhere that it isn’t good form to end a book on a cliffhanger, but I remember all my favorite television shows ending on a cliffhanger; good grief — some of them ended the season that way!
Does anyone else remember watching Dallas, when JR was shot?
I don’t mind a cliffhanger. For me, it adds thrill and intrigue to the story . . . and makes me eager to read the next book in the series. There are lots of secrets in books one and two that haven’t been revealed, but that just makes it more exciting to read.
Will Kayden survive? Will she be the new Princess/Queen? Who else is in the castle, intent upon killing the Prince — or was Kayden the intended victim? I can’t say . . . I really can’t.
JC Morrows is relatively new to the industry, yet she writes stories as if she’s been writing for a great, many years. Although most of us enjoy happy endings — and cliffhangers are difficult for some of us (especially those of us with no patience), at least we don’t have to wait a year or more for the next book to be released.
A Reluctant Assassin was released on September 29, 2015, with a stunner of a cliffhanger!
JC was kind enough to include the first chapter at the end of the book, so her fans wouldn’t freak out over what was happening with the lovely Kayden, our beautiful, but deadly assassin.
A Treacherous Decision, book two in this series, will release on December 29, 2015 — just 3 months after book one. If you enjoy YA fantasy, suspense, intrigue, and romance — whatever you do, don’t miss this series!
