Joelle Charbonneau

Joelle Charbonneau is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the young adult novels Dividing Eden, Need, and the Testing trilogy, as well as the Glee Club mystery series. She is also an entertainer who has performed in a variety of operas, musical theatre, and children’s theatre productions across the Chicagoland area.

Samenvatting

The first installment of Charbonneau's duology is now in paperback. When their father and older sibling are killed by assassins, a pair of royal twins who were never destined to rule are forced to compete against each other in a dangerous trial that is shaped by the schemes of a power-hungry ruling council

Twins Carys and Andreus were never destined to rule Eden. With their older brother next in line to inherit the throne, the future of the kingdom was secure.

But appearances-and rivals-can be deceiving. When Eden's king and crown prince are killed by assassins, Eden desperately needs a monarch, but the line of succession is no longer clear. With a ruling council scheming to gain power, Carys and Andreus are faced with only one option-to take part in a Trial of Succession that will determine which one of them is worthy of ruling the kingdom.

As sister and brother, Carys and Andreus have always kept each other safe-from their secrets, from the court, and from the monsters lurking in the mountains beyond the kingdom's wall. But the Trial of Succession will test the bonds of trust and family.

With their country and their hearts divided, Carys and Andreus will discover exactly what each will do to win the crown. How long before suspicion takes hold and the thirst for power leads to the ultimate betrayal?

    Geschreven bij Dividing Eden

    Dit boek ging een andere richting in dan ik had verwacht, dat hoeft natuurlijk niks slechts te zijn. En in dit geval, was het dat ook niet. De wereld werd geweldig opgebouwd en de karakters hadden veel diepgang. Ze hadden motieven, verhalen en vrienden. Ze voelden echt. Ze ontwikkelden zichzelf en dat was goed om te zien. Af en toe kon het boek een beetje langdradig zijn, dus vandaar de 4 sterren maar verder heb ik erg veel plezier gehad met het lezen van dit boek.
