The Duchess Quest by C.K. Brooke @SDSXXTours @authorckbrooke















The Duchess Quest
Jordinia Book 1
by C.K. Brooke
Genre: YA Romantic Fantasy


All-New, Revised 2017 Second Edition

Love is destined to find her...

Dainy doesn't know that she is the lost duchess of Jordinia, or that her uncle has organized a contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward!

Though at odds, three clashing rivals--a noble giant, a forester, and a thief--voyage together by woodland, plains, and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic triangle as her suitors compete to capture her heart.

Charmingly romantic and bursting with action, startling twists, and vivid characters, fans of Anastasia and The Princess Bride will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.

4 STARS

This rollicking fantasy adventure lingered in my mind several days after I had finished it.  Dainy is a sweet, unassuming heroine that I could not help but to love.  Naive and innocent, she’s also compassionate and yet seems to portray certain wisdom beyond her young years.  I also enjoyed the three young men who protected the lost duchess on her long journey home to Jordinia.  The three rivals became unlikely friends as the journey and their tribulations progressed.  There were many humorous scenes as the three men interacted with each other, the circumstance, and their surroundings.  I really enjoyed their interactions.

While several of the twists really did not surprise me, there were a couple of them that did totally astound me.  The pacing was good and the conversational bantering was engaging and fun to read.  I recommend this adventure fantasy to everyone who loves a good, clean romantic adventure.
