An eighteen-year-old queen in love with the enemy as their countries pass the point of no return...

Bound to a man she cannot love, Queen Alera of Hytanica must forget Narian, the young man who holds her heart. For Narian is destined to conquer Hytanica at the behest of his master, the powerful magic-user known as the Overlord. Alera doesn't truly believe Narian will fight against Hytanica-until Cokyrian troops attack with Narian commanding the charge.

Faced with the greatest betrayal a heart can know, Alera must set aside personal feelings and lead her kingdom through its darkest time. And when all hope, will and courage seem lost, she must find strength and remember that even the blackest night must have a dawn....
 
Alera is back and married to Steldor. She’s also the new Queen on Hytanica. Talk about intense.

The action started with start of war between the Cokyrian and Hytanica. It got complicated when placed at the front with the Cokrian was Narian. Alera and her family were forced to flee when living in their own house was no longer safe. which lead Alera and her family to escaping with a group of her most trusted men.

It's hard not to love the characters when their lives were constantly endangered. There was a drastic growth with in the characters from this life or death journey. Alera changed into such a strong fighter that was willing to stand up for Hytanica. 

War wasn't the only complicated thing in her life. Alera doesn't know how to act as a wife when her feelings haven't changed about Narian. Falling for Steldor wasn't too hard when Narian wasn't around. Yes, this did result in a temporary switch to Team Steldor. He respected and gave Alera space to give him a chance as her husband. He really knew how to play the gentlemen angle. The only problem was that Alera wasn't giving Steldor a chance.

At roughly 500 pages, there were very few uneventful moments. The first half of the book was at a nice pace, but the second half was when it kicked off. There are many drastic changes that happen in Allegiance.

Overall: 3.5 out of 5
