Title:  A Treacherous Decision
Author:  J.C. Morrow
Publisher:  S&G Publishing
Release Date:  December 29, 2015



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!



We finally get to find out about Kayden after she was hurt from saving Prince Dvarius at the conclusion of Volume 1's A Reluctant Assassin (click on the title to see my review).  I was looking forward to this one for quite some time.  I'm glad to say A Treacherous Decision starts almost right where we left off. We get some flashback to the events immediately after the events, but we start off with Kayden in an induced coma. 

This story continues to intrigue me in many ways. Dvarius is still the same character as before, and he seems to have grown in wisdom a tad bit. While Kayden's recovering, he holds off his questions about the attack, how she handled it and who she really is, and possibly more so because he's afraid of the answers. To me, I think he actually have these answers, or at least a good speculation of them, but will it be like opening Pandora's Box?  The Order and their characters, with their different understanding and questions for Kayden also brings to light in what situation Kayden is in. Maybe she's better off sleeping off it! Just kidding.  I'm happy to find Lady Catarine's character more developed in this book, and hopefully by the end of the series, she will become a favorite! 

In terms of the physical aspect of the book, my question is, can we really not have combined the two?  The font of both books are unusual to say the least, and it seems rather a quick read. I'm not sure what the total word count is, I'm sure it does count as a novel. I just wished instead of so many volumes (there's the prequel, vol 1, 1.5, and now 2), we can enjoy the story as a whole.

Despite the format of the books, JC continues to give us a suspenseful love story that tangles around the premise of identity and monarchical power struggles. Though it starts off slow due to the recuperation of Kayden's character in terms of action, there's plenty of sentimental impact in lieu of it.  The action builds through-out the story, and yet again to another cliffhanger!  I'm really not a fan of cliffhangers, but it does make for a climatic end to an episodic story.
