At the beginning of A Throne for Sisters by Morgan Rice, orphaned sisters, Kate and Sophia, are living at The House of the Unclaimed, an orphanage near the town of Ashton. It’s a stretch to say they were living because they were more like captives.
The orphanage was a nightmare for both sisters. The orphans were kept until they could be sold into servitude when they came of age at 17. They had been thinking of leaving but didn’t think it would be possible.
I don’t know what I was thinking but I read a few reviews. One person wanted to know why they didn’t just leave. It’s not as easy to leave a place where people are controlling your life as some would think. The sisters have no family, no money, and no friends. So where are they supposed to go? Shame on me for reading the reviews.
Sophia and Kate do finally escape from the orphanage. They are being hunted but manage to allude everyone.
The sisters are both able to read minds. It helps them out of some situations but not all. Their power is one of their closely guarded secrets.
Sophia and Kate decide to separate so that maybe one of them could stay out of The House of the Unclaimed. Sophia manages to find a way into a ball at the palace. She finds her prince, who is actually a prince.
Kate finds a home and a job with a blacksmith. She feels like she has finally found a place in the world.
However, the good times are short-lived for both sisters. You will have to read the book to discover what happens to Sophia and Kate.
If you like books set in medieval times with a bit of magic, then you might enjoy A Throne for Sisters. If you don’t enjoy books that are part of a series, then there is no help for you in this case.
Some people in the review section seem to not be a fan of having to buy the next book. For the most part, I don’t mind getting the next book. In the case of A Throne for Sisters, I look forward to reading the next book.
It sounds like an adventure, especially for young adults. It’s hard writing a series. I’m trying to not leave any cliffhangers in mine so that people could, if they want, read one book as a complete story unto itself. Sometimes cliffhangers are REALLY intriguing, though, and I’m happy to keep going through a series……
It has plenty of adventure. That sounds like a good way to go about writing a series. 🙂
