Combine royalty and alternate American history, and it’s bound to be a fun read. This was exactly what I wanted it to be: dramatic, creative, romantic, and a lot of fun.
I loved the relationships between siblings, romantic interests, friends and frenemies. There are four points of view, and they all worked. They had distinct voices, and each served a purpose. I had a favorite, of course, but I never wanted to skip past any of them.
I loved how McGee invented an entirely different history for America, including how that would affect the present day. It explores the concept of a monarch’s private vs. public life, including the sacrifices made out of a sense of duty to one’s country.
I have the sequel, Majesty: American Royals II, on pre-order for delivery in September.
