Book Review: “A Desperate Escape” (“Order of the Moonstone” #3) by J.C. Morrows

Accio Book!

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t read the previous books, this will ruin the story a bit for you. You can see the review for A Reluctant Assassin, Book 1, HERE.

The dystopian steampunk series continues on April 26, 2016 with the release of A Desperate Escape. Our Cinderella-Assassin has revealed her true identity in a last-ditch effort to save Prince Dvarius from the Order that sent her to kill him. Now, locked up in a safe room with him and his guards, Kayden waits to see when she’ll get the boot and hopes Catarine will be able to step in as queen.

When the attack “ends,” Dvarius has a major decision to make: Does he trust Kayden? The answer to that question will mean either life or death for the young king-to-be.

As always, Morrows does a wonderful job of keeping the plot moving and twisting forward and leaving us hooked at the end. This is a great series for dystopian fans.
