Christy's Review: Allegiance by Cayla Kluver

Allegiance by Cayla Kluver
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages: 512
Pub Date: March 2012

A special Thank you to Harlequin Teen for sending me this book to review. 


"Only I saw Narian for who he truly was: a young man with courage and an independent mind, and made to pay for what was outside his control. He couldn’t help his past any more than he could help the way those intense, deep-blue eyes pierced me and held me captive."

AN EIGHTEEN-YEAR-OLD QUEEN IN LOVE WITH THE ENEMY AS THEIR COUNTRIES PASS THE POINT OF NO RETURN...
Bound to a man she cannot love, Queen Alera of Hytanica must forget Narian, the young man who holds her heart. For Narian is destined to conquer Hytanica at the behest of his master, the powerful magic-user known as the Overlord. Alera doesn’t truly believe Narian will fight against Hytanica—until Cokyrian troops attack with Narian commanding the charge.
Faced with the greatest betrayal a heart can know, Alera must set aside personal feelings and lead her kingdom through its darkest time. And when all hope, will and courage seem lost, she must find strength and remember that even the blackest night must have a dawn....
  
Review:
As I mentioned in my review of Legacy, by Cayla Kluver, I LOVE this series and practically inhaled both Legacy, and this sequel, Allegiance in one 24-hour period.

Allegiance picks up shortly after Legacy left off, with Steldor and Alera being crowned King and Queen of Hytanica. Alera is still in love with Narian and pretty much detests Steldor. Let me tell you, Cayla Kluver knows how to hook your attention! I had millions of questions, immediately after beginning this book: Can Alera forget Narian? Can Steldor be a good ruler in Hytanica and win Alera’s heart? And what’s going to happen with Narian? I was so wound up with anticipation that I couldn’t put it down and read this entire book in a day. Oh and the sexual tension between Alera and Steldor… let’s put it this way, it’s enough to make a girl say Edward and Bella WHO?

This sequel does not disappoint!! There were a few spots (continuity-wise) that confused me, but it may have been the lack of sleep (from reading the first book in this series all night long!) All in all, a great read. Miss Kluver develops both her characters and her storyline into maturity in this heartbreaking, action-packed tale about true love, honor, duty, and growing up. Can’t wait for book three!
