unForgiven (Birthright #2)
This book brings you to Judica point of view, it starts off right where book one leaves off (which was from Chancery point of view). This was a great way for us to see the inner workings of Judica and it also gives you 2 perspectives.
In this you get to read some of what happened in their shared past, and you get to continue the story-line in the present as well so that there is no waiting.
This book gives you answers that you might have had from the first when their past was spoken about, s small spoiler without giving anything away would be the poisoning that happens when they are 9. You find out why and how it happened.
I really loved how this book drew you into the story and answered questions about the past without having to write a whole book about just past workings.
Here is a couple links:
There are two sides to every story, but they can’t both be true, can they? In the second book of the Birthright Series, Bridget E. Baker weaves a tale of bad things done for very good reasons and an unexpected chance at redemption.
To be feared is lonely. . .
As heir to the evian throne, Judica must be perfect every moment of every day. If she slips up, even once, her mother will replace her. Impossible standards, horrifying decisions, terrible truths—none of these stop Judica from doing what needs to be done. She becomes what her mother demands, what her people need, what she never wanted for herself. But it isn’t enough.
But to be weak is death.
Judica’s worst nightmare becomes a reality when her twin sister Chancery steals the throne. Her life is over, all her efforts a waste. Judica should be furious, but strangely, she’s relieved. The freedom from her former responsibilities leaves her time to pursue her mother’s killer. But as she unravels the clues, the truth slips further away. When her investigation leads to a common enemy, Judica must decide whether she's willing to mend the deep and painful fractures between her and Chancery, or whether she’s too far gone. Once a villain, always a villain?
