Kiss of the Royal - Tour & Review

Kiss of the Royal
by Lindsey Duga

Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: July 3rd 2018
Entangled Teen

In the war against the Forces of Darkness, the Royals are losing. Princess Ivy is determined to end this centuries-long conflict once and for all, so her new battle partner must succeed where the others failed. Prince Zach’s unparalleled skill with a sword, enhanced by Ivy’s magic Kiss, should make them an unstoppable pair—but try convincing Zach of that.

Prince Zach has spent his life preparing for battle, but he would rather be branded a heretic than use his lips as nothing more than a way to transfer magic. A kiss is a symbol of love, and love is the most powerful weapon they have—but try convincing Ivy of that.

With the fate of their world on the line, the battlefield has become a testing ground, and only one of them can be right. Falling for each other wasn’t part of the plan—but try convincing their hearts of that.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Kiss of the Royal has a real reverse fairy tale vibe. Instead of kisses symbolising true love and happily ever after, kisses hold the power to save lives and love is outlawed.  

Society is ruled by the Royal families who have magical powers. These powers are passed on through blood lines. Princesses can administer healing magic through kisses to help their partnered Princes.  I have to admit I do like the sentiment that kisses can heal and act as a powerful weapon in times of war. War is a big part of the book in a very fairy tale evil Queen kinda way.

Princess Ivy possesses all kinds of powerful magic but has bad luck when it comes to battle partners. Her new partner Prince Zach isn't keen for her to use her kiss on him, even refusing her help when he would really benefit from it - she can't understand why. 

To say Ivy and Zach don't exactly get on when they meet is a big understatement. Zach's very dismissive of her and her abilities which is a big knock to her pride. She thinks he's arrogant and rude. The slow burn in their relationship which goes from angry acquaintances to friends is certainly entertaining.

I loved the drama, angst, romances and of course the kisses. More please!

Lindsey Duga developed a deep love for courageous heroes, dastardly villains, and enchanting worlds from the cartoon shows, books, and graphic novels she read as a kid. Drawing inspiration from these fantastical works of fiction, she wrote her first novel in college while she was getting her bachelor’s in Mass Communication from Louisiana State University. By day, Lindsey is an account manager at a digital marketing agency based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. By night, and the wee hours of the morning, she writes both middle grade and young adult. She has a weakness for magic, anything classical, all kinds of mythology, and falls in love with tragic heroes. Other than writing and cuddling with her morkie puppy, Delphi, Lindsey loves catching up on the latest superhero TV show, practicing yoga, and listening (and belting) to her favorite music artists and show tunes. KISS OF THE ROYAL is her YA debut novel.
