Book two of The Sin Eater’s Daughter is even more intense and exciting than the first!



Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin’s life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep.

When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won’t reveal why he needs them. Silas promises to help her, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save
her mother and herself. But what she finds shatters everything she believed about her world, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom.

Welcome to the blog tour for The Sleeping Prince, run by the lovely Faye Rogers PR! This series is gearing up to be one of my absolute favourites. If you loved The Sin Eater’s Daughter, you’re definitely going to want to read this. Just as dark and exciting as the previous book, The Sleeping Prince will leave you hungry for more. Just like the previous book in the series, it grips you from page one, and absolutely does not let you go

This helping features a new set of characters, but still has all the fantastic plot vehicles that we’ve come to expect. Full of surprising twists and turns, the cliff hanger a the end of the novel is going to leave you desperate for the next book in the series. The new protagonist Errin is a fascinating one, and one that I think is much more likeable that Twylla. I really enjoyed being inside her head and looking at things from her perspective. The Sleeping Prince is also a fantastic character, he’s twisted and dark and everything a villain should be. Can I also point out how much I love the covers for this series? They’re absolutely beautiful and so eye catching, love them!

The simple way to sum up The Sleeping Prince is just that it’s a pleasure to read. It has everything you could possibly ask for – and so much more. It’s well written, has plenty of murder, mystery and excitement. I absolutely love all the folklore and world building in this series. It’s dark, gripping and just a wonderful wonderful story. If you’re looking for an addictive fantasy series, The Sin Eater’s Daughter is just what you’ve been looking for. Once you’ve raced through The Sleeping Prince – which you absolutely will, I devoured it in a few sittings – your only problem will be waiting for the final instalment!
