    Jenna is coming closer to becoming what she has dreamed of doing, becoming the first Lady Knight in centuries While the crown and others support her, others do not, including her father, who has disinherited both Jenna and her brother, and many nobles want her locked in the mage towers With Jenna involved in palace politics and peace talks Jenna may ultimately need to choose where her loyalties lie To Serve the King is an enjoyable second book and I did not see some of the story points coming Jenna is coming closer to becoming what she has dreamed of doing, becoming the first Lady Knight in centuries While the crown and others support her, others do not, including her father, who has disinherited both Jenna and her brother, and many nobles want her locked in the mage towers With Jenna involved in palace politics and peace talks Jenna may ultimately need to choose where her loyalties lie To Serve the King is an enjoyable second book and I did not see some of the story points coming I found this book very slow paced but there wasworld building The main problem I had with this book is that it seemed that the ultimate story arc for this series changed between To Play the Lady and this book Jenna annoyed me in this book as she was easily distracted from whatever task she had at hand, acted before she thought and did not seem willing to fight for what she wanted I also wasn t a fan of the romance as I thought she liked Sebastian and he would be the series love interest, but that changed at the beginning of the book and the new love interest came out of nowhere and the age gap felt too big considering Jenna s age.Despite the problems I had with this book I did like it, and I am looking forward to reading the next book I would recommend To Serve the King to fans of the first book To Play the Lady.This and my other reviews can be found at Amethyst Bookwyrm

    I have mixed feelings about this book The first book, which was very disappointing on a second read through, made me leery of this one I was happy to discover the writing a lot stronger, and the characters deepened The world building was one of the stronger points, and I think really helped keep the story afloat.Jenna is a rather puzzling character She turns 14 in the story, which is a milestone for girls in her country they are now of marriageable age However, this does not reduce the cr I have mixed feelings about this book The first book, which was very disappointing on a second read through, made me leery of this one I was happy to discover the writing a lot stronger, and the characters deepened The world building was one of the stronger points, and I think really helped keep the story afloat.Jenna is a rather puzzling character She turns 14 in the story, which is a milestone for girls in her country they are now of marriageable age However, this does not reduce the creep factor when she falls in love with a 21 year old prince Even if that s culturally acceptable, it s too big a gap at that age Though she usually acts and talks like someone a lot older perhaps 17 or 18 , there are fits of pique usually when something doesn t go her way or she loses her temper when she acts 5 She has an aggravating arrogance and expectation of being included in things that aren t necessarily her business that I find extremely annoying Her chosen one ness is also quite overpowering Though we learnin this book, and Lane is obviously going somewhere with it, it s so painfully obvious.Lane self published, so there are a number of grammatical errors that were rather irritating By the end, I felt like there was a lot of lazy writing The romance between Jenna and Dominic felt forced and rushed, and it was weird because a she d already had a fling with Dominic s younger brother not that long ago, and b he s half again her age I did like the political intrigue, and again, the world building is a very strong point in this series I think Lane has some great ideas, but she suffers from lack of an editor it needs some cleaning and polishing and a bit of tweaking I m not sure if I will read the next installment

    Just wonderfulFull of magic, a little romance, a lot of emotion, and tons of politics, this book is a surprisingly good book Jenna s character is developed evenfrom the first book, her strengths and talents humanized by her bad temper, inability to keep secrets and follow orders, overwhelming curiosity and basic immaturity The Peter character is sort of left on the dust, along with Sebastian and a couple of others, but other characters like Lucas and Raymond get developed a bit further, Just wonderfulFull of magic, a little romance, a lot of emotion, and tons of politics, this book is a surprisingly good book Jenna s character is developed evenfrom the first book, her strengths and talents humanized by her bad temper, inability to keep secrets and follow orders, overwhelming curiosity and basic immaturity The Peter character is sort of left on the dust, along with Sebastian and a couple of others, but other characters like Lucas and Raymond get developed a bit further, deepening the intrigue and essentially just working to make this this book even better than the first one I can t wait to see what happens next

    3.5 stars Reasonably good sequel A bit too much people acting stupid because they keep secrets from each other for no good reason other than as a plot device
