Release Day Review! The Betrayed by Kiera Cass

The Betrayed (The Betrothed #2) by Kiera Cass
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy Romance/ Dystopian)
Expected publication: June 29, 2021
Publisher: HarperTeen

Kiera Cass brings another sparkling romance to a stunning conclusion in this sequel to the instant #1 New York Times bestseller The Betrothed.

Can you follow your heart when it’s already broken?

After fleeing Coroa and leaving the memory of her beloved Silas behind, Hollis is unsteadily adjusting to life in Isolte. The Eastoffe family’s affection is a balm on her weary spirit, though Etan, a surly cousin with a deep distaste for Coroans, threatens to upset the uneasy peace she’s found.

While tensions at home ratchet up, disquiet in the kingdom of Isolte is reaching a fever pitch. The Eastoffes may have the power to unseat a tyrannical king—but only with Hollis’s help.

Can a girl who’s lost it all put the fate of her adopted homeland over the secret longings of her heart?

The Betrayed is the second book in this duology by Kiera Cass. After that ending in The Betrothed, I knew things would be rough for Hollis, and oh my goodness, were they! What I loved though, was how accepting Silas's family was of her. With the exception of Etan, of course. He was a hard one to win over. For a two book run, this was a pretty intense and unexpected storyline. Also... Holy plot twists, Batman!! That ending? Not entirely what I expected. I'm sad that there were only two books, but at the same time, I can't imagine it any other way. I loved it just as it is!

The ARC of The Betrayed by Kiera Cass was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.

Are you a fan of The Selection??? Looks like we may see it on Netflix in the future!

I am a graduate of Radford University with a B.S. in History. I grew up in South Carolina and currently live in the LA area with my family. Said family consists of a Seminary Student Hubby, a Video Game Wizard Son, a Experimental Artist Daughter, a Sun-Loving Dog, and a Family Assistant Turned Friend/Roommate! I'm a #1 New York Times bestseller, woohoo! I'm super into boybands, gluten free cake, and my collection of tiaras. In my free time, I like making my readers cry. Such fun.
