Summary

Julien always thought he knew his duty...until an arranged marriage upends his future. Prince Julien of Escarland was the kingdom's spare. His duty is to quietly stand in the background at his brother's side, protecting him and his heirs. Julien's younger siblings might have duties as ambassadors or in a marriage of alliance that would take them away from Escarland, but not Julien.

Yet when it becomes clear that one more marriage is needed to secure the three-way alliance between the kingdoms of Kostaria, Tarenhiel, and Escarland, Julien agrees to an arranged marriage with a troll. He doesn't know their language, and he might not be strong enough to fit into their battle-focused culture, but other than that, how bad could it be?

Vriska always thought she knew her future. As King Rharreth's shield sister, she is duty-bound to protect him and his queen. But she never expected her duty to include an arranged marriage with a human, of all people.

An empire-hungry kingdom is lurking, seeking any weakness in the alliance. Will this final bond safeguard the alliance, or cause it to crumble? And can Julien and Vriska find love in a relationship based on duty?

Return to the snowy mountains of Kostaria in this final installment of the best-selling Elven Alliance series!

wedding jitters, challenges and deadly plots.

Absolutely fantastic, I'd give this 100 stars if it was possible. The world setting is so beautifully written, and well fleshed out. All three of the main kingdoms have a unique and diverse background, all different and extremely interesting. The elves version of a Palace really had my attention, if I wasn't afraid of heights I'd love to live in their kingdom. The trolls and their connection to stone, that had a really good twist to it. Then the humans, I felt bad for the royal family in Escarland. Between the politics and the plotting and scheming, so much happens that you can't put this down. Costaria is the main focus in this book, and I can honestly say I loved everything about it. Julian and Vriska were so adorably awkward, I constantly found myself caught Between laughing and almost crying. The storyline has such a dramatic impact in this book, add wonderful characters that you instantly love and you have something incredible. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves elves, trolls and humans, and lore rich stories. The narrator for the audiobooks does a beautiful job on all 6 books, the way her voice changes for each character is perfect.

AMAZING

I love this book series, and of you haven't listened to/read the first few books start with Essie and Farrendel's. first book NOW (you are welcome in advance).
narrator does a great job with the different voices. I think Queen Paige has a slightly annoying nasally voice but she's BARELY in it, probably less than 5minutes total spread out through the entire book.
the story is a perfect clean and swoony, but not embarrassing, I didn't feel weird listening to the audiobook with my elementary aged boys in the car with me.

Awesome end to an amazing series!

Every character Tara Grayce writes are so likable. From Farrendel to Vriska. And the plot was so wonderful! Got to love seeing all the other couples too!
