Jennifer Anne Davis's best-selling True Reign series captivated readers from the very first page. Now, get ready to become entangled in the follow-up series, Reign of Secrets. In this new series, follow Allyssa, the daughter of the beloved Emperor Darmik and Empress Rema— and find out what happens after happily ever after.

Seventeen-year-old Allyssa appears to be the ideal princess of Emperion—she’s beautiful, elegant, and refined. She spends her days locked in a suffocating cage, otherwise known as royal court. But at night, Allyssa uses her secret persona—that of a vigilante—to hunt down criminals and help her people firsthand.

Unfortunately, her nightly escapades will have to wait because the citizens of Emperion may need saving from something much bigger than common criminals. War is encroaching on their country and in order to protect her people, Allyssa may have to sacrifice her heart. Forced to entertain an alliance through marriage with a handsome prince from a neighboring kingdom, she finds herself feeling even more stifled than before. To make matters worse, the prince has stuck his nosy squire, Jarvik, to watch her every move.

Jarvik is infuriating, bossy and unfortunately, the only person she can turn to when she unveils a heinous plot. Together, the unlikely pair will have to work together to stop an enemy that everyone thought was long gone, one with the power to destroy her family and the people of Emperion. Now the cage Allyssa so longed to break free from might just be the one thing she has to fight to keep intact. In order to save her kingdom, she will have to sacrifice her freedom, her heart, and maybe even her life.

I recently attended Book Expo of America in New York City with a couple of blogging friends of mine, and sort of jumped in blind. I knew of maybe 5 books that were going to be featured there and that I MUST-HAVE. CAGE OF DECEIT was in that top 5!

A couple of month’s back I came across her TRUE REIGN series and absolutely LOVED it. There are only three books in the series, and they were amazing! When I found out that she had written a spin-off I literally jumped with joy. I am not kidding! That is how much I loved the characters, the world, romance, EVERYTHING!

CAGE OF DECEIT did not disappoint! It’s filled with just as much suspense and action as Jennifer Anne Davis TRUE REIGN series. There isn't one complaint out of me over this book. It was written well, from beginning to end you are completely entertained and fully hooked on the characters. Davis gives you just enough action mixed in with romance that it makes the story feel complete. It was a bit predictable at times, but I am okay with that because I was secretly hoping the story was heading in that in direction.

I thought Jennifer Anne Davis' TRUE REIGN series was one to rave about, but CAGE OF DECEIT has topped it, and has completely blown me away! I love this book! I cannot wait for the sequel! Davis will forever be on my MUST-READ list. A Good Choice for Reading! ;) A MUST-READ!

5 HUGE stars!

  1. Sounds amazing! One question, since in the description it says this is a follow up series, do I have to read the True Reign series first? Or would I be able to read this one without it?

    What's Your Story?

    1. Nope. Though I recommend you read them. They are AWESOME too!

      But no, you can read Cage of Deceit as a stand alone. It follows their daughter, and it's a completely new story. ;)

  2. This one was amazing. I agree with your review. It had everything that I really love in a fantasy.
