For a hundred years, the once-prosperous kingdom of Perin Faye has suffered under the rule of the greedy and power-hungry Thungrave kings. Maralyth Graylaern, a vintner’s daughter, has no idea her hidden magical power is proof of a secret bloodline and claim to the throne. Alac Thungrave, the king’s second son, has always been uncomfortable with his position as the spare heir—and the dark, stolen magic that comes with ruling.

When Maralyth becomes embroiled in a plot to murder the royal family and seize the throne, a cat-and-mouse chase ensues in an adventure of dark magic, court intrigue, and forbidden love.


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

The Stolen Kingdom, about a girl who discovers her true potential, and a prince who discovers his true love for his kingdom. Maralyth discovers that her magic has much more potential than she originally imagined, however, when she’s manipulated into a coup, she discovers that she can do more with her magic, including saving Prince Alac and his kingdom, she encounters the true difficulty of choosing between the coup and Prince Alac.

I gave The Stolen Kingdom 4.5 stars, torn between having been an amazing young adult fantasy with hints of romance, but also that The Stolen Kingdom could have been much more in depth. Jillian Boehme does a job well done with The Stolen Kingdom when it comes down to the magic system and the relationships that are built within the story line. I really enjoyed reading The Stolen Kingdom and enjoying how Maralyth or Mara as she goes by during the story, really develops as a character. From a girl who rarely used her magic as it was forbidden, to someone who uses her power to save the people and the kingdom.

I wanted The Stolen Kingdom to go on much longer, especially toward the end when I felt that the ending was rather rushed and not given in great detail, making my rating a 4.5 star. I really enjoyed every second of The Stolen Kingdom, loving the relationship between Mara and Alac. It was well formed and you can see the betrayal yet love between them. It didn’t feel rushed, but overtime, you can see their connection, including their chemistry when they first met.

The Stolen Kingdom was a terrific read and I would highly recommend this for anyone trying fantasy or trying fantasy romance.
