    1. Full Review to Follow@abookishescape/2017/03The End, there is an attack on the capital and all heck breaks loose. There are so many things going on at once that my brain and my heart were going to explode. Seriously talk about super charged (pun intended.) Almost everything is revealed except the great and terrible why! Raserion has made his reasons known but we still don’t know Varions!! I will say when I got to the end after being on the edge of my seat I had to pick my JAW…OFF THE FREAKIN [...]

    2. A double review of this and the previous novel originally posted on [a cup of tea and an armful of books]Katelyn’s role as an outsider has finally come to this. Since she wasn’t born in this land, she has the potential to bring peace to the two separated countries if she agrees to be an envoy. She’s tasked with asking Prince Varion to send military support to Breakwater, a town that is only moments away from the wrath of Prince Raserion after the events in Paperglass. That is easier said t [...]

    3. Actual rating: 3.5Kate, Kyle, Dylan and Rune go on another adventure to the North lands where they must find Varion and ask him to send armies to protect Breakwater and Haven from Raserion's attack. This journey is sure to bring them so many unexpected secrets and revelations.I actually like this more than the previous ones mainly because Katelyn wasn't the main focus and other characters had their time to grow, especially Kyle. Like the previous two books, the twists and turns were so unexpecte [...]

    4. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Monarch like it’s predecessors, Haven and Paperglass, is a fantasy / steampunk novel packed with action, adventure and surprises.We pick up immediately after the events of Paperglass with Katelyn and crew fulfilling their promise to Common Lord Brendon Axton in helping to aid the city of Breakwater.I love that in this book we get to learn more about the Northern army. We already learned a lot about the Dragoons and [...]

    5. This book was so disappointing after Haven and Dragoon. It's like an entirely different person wrote this book having never read book 1 & 2. Very strange I can't believe the didn't wrap it up and is dragging it out into a fourth book. So sad but I honestly don't think I will read book four.

    6. Continues to be a very good, fast-paced, plot-twisting series. I don’t see the twists coming, they’re so unexpected. And the fact that the characters are still interesting, and I want to go straight on to the next book, for me, really says something about this series. I’m so glad they’re all out, or I think I’d go bonkers!

    7. Rune Thayer’s rebellion in Cape Hill has placed all of Breakwater in danger from the ruthless and mercurial Prince Raserion. Now, Katelyn Kestrel and her best friend, Kyle, must do something that no one in the Western Kingdom has ever attempted: travel North to request aid from Prince Varion, the mysterious monarch who’s been locked in a bloody war with his brother for centuries.But as Katelyn sets sail for enemy territory, she’s confronted by Prince Raserion. He knows what she’s plannin [...]

    8. Just like when I reviewed the second book in this series, I want to try to avoid all spoilers even for the first book in this review. Or at least not spoil anything too huge. Because of that, this will most likely be brief. There's so much I could go on and on about in this book, but almost all of it is a spoiler for this book anyway. So much happened, and it was amazing and wonderful and emotional. I still haven't recovered.I loved this book. With each book in this series, I become increasingly [...]

    9. The third book in the series is a fantasy novel and aimed at young adults.Katelyn and friends are trying to piece together their lives after their devastating loss at the end of book two. Common-Lord Brendon Axton has a very important mission for them. In order to keep Breakwater safe following the start of the rebellion, the friends are tasked with finding Prince Varion and asking him for protection from Prince Raserion. On the journey Katelyn is visited by Raserion and given a task-one it seem [...]

    10. "If circumstances in life were always changing, shouldn't that mean people could change, too? Every moment should be a platform for positive growth and new possibilities."As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.This review contains spoilers. Following the startling events of Paperglass, our series The War of Princes continues with a third book, Monarch–nothing can prepare us [...]

    11. This book made me do my first review everThe rating is not just for Monarch, but for The War of the Princes as a series and for A. R. Ivanovich. It would be easy to rate The Hunger Games, or Throne of Glass, or Penryn and the End of Days. This book deserves following as much and the relatively unknown author deserves such praise as those writing the latter volumes. A.R. Ivanovich has written a story that has quietly kept me purchasing sequels and reading them end to end. I've not gotten bored, n [...]

    12. I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Having found the first two books in the series amazing, the start of this one disappointed me, I took about a week to read the first half then a couple of hours to read the last half. It was just a little lack luster, there was no oomph to it. I really struggled to find the will to carry on.Once I got past the first half, I quite enjoyed it. There were some good twists along the way. Carmine's part the story was a [...]

    13. *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*Okay, so Ivanovich completely took my breath with this one. I had settled in to third installment of the War of Princes series with the expectation of a certain story–a certain kind of story–and she went and turned it on its head. Remember last week in my review of Paperglass when I said these books get better as they go? I did not then realize the enormous truth of that statement. So let me say it again. So far, each of [...]

    14. HOLY FREAKING GRAVITY That was. AWESOME Did not, I DID NOT saw ANYall those plot twists coming! Holy crapolla! Man I love it, I love love these series and I really thought it was a Trilogy but damn.Another book huh?! I love there is another and I hate it too, because come on RUNE! WHY?! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?! They just got each other. SICK PILOT, I hope she gets her ass whooped by Kat and Dylan. And Kyle, SON OF A LODESTONE! Are you kidding me?! This was the best of all the part [...]

    15. Book three, and I was really happy with how the story continued without slowing down - although I was a bit hazy on the specifics of the books that came before it since it had been so long since I read them, it took me awhile to remember everything. But Katelyn continues to be a heroine I really, really like and enjoy reading about, and man I did NOT see any of the twists coming, so by about 40%, I was on the edge of my seat trying to see what would happen next. The end - not the absolute end, s [...]

    16. The third in the War of the Princes series Another book devoured!Between Rune and Katelyn, a disturbance has been created in Lastland. Common Lord Axton has tasked Katelyn, her Dragoon, Kyle and Dylan with finding Prince Varion and securing his help. It may be the only thing that can keep Breakwater safe following the rebellion, and Haven's security depends in part on their success. As they travel on the Flying Fish, Katelyn is plagued by a Gateling. She "travels" to Shadows within Shadows and P [...]

    17. I received this book from Netgalley. Wow. My review of this book will be very similar to the last book in this series. Just wow. I loved it. Katelyn keeps growing and becoming more powerful while still trying to remain who she was before leaving Haven. Rune is just amazing. I did not see the twist with Kyle or the one with Carmine for that matter and those were just great. I love it when authors can throw a plot twist that I didn't see coming. The writing style is just fantastic with the reader [...]

    18. Awesome!I still think the second one was my favorite, simply because I felt like things got a little slow for a while in this one. But, there was still plenty of action packed in this book to make up for that and it was still so great!!I love Katelyn and Rune, I actually love Dylan in all of his pompous, synical glory and, honestly, I kinda like Raserion too. But idk, he seems to be destined for evil :(I always found Kyle to be kind of an irritating weakling and, now that I've finished this book [...]

    19. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Once again, A. R. Ivanovich manages to create yet another amazing sequel. Many unexpected turns tell you that not everything is as it seems, esp this book. It starts out slow but then next thing you know you are at the end of the book. And it gnaws at you until you pick up the next book, ready to bring satisfaction to an unfinished ending. That is how I feel. I can't wait to read the final book and close this amazing [...]

    20. It took me a moment to remember all of the players and I was constantly interrupted.However, once I got to the last half of the book, I locked myself in a room and tore through it. I was hanging on every word and wanted to know how? when? why?Then I hit the epilogue, I was frantically searching for the ending I wantedI did not find it.I was heart-broken, then I got to the acknowledgementsYes!!! There will be another book!The twists that were hinted at before, the redemption, the betrayal, who is [...]

    21. Definitely shed a few tears with this one. The most intense yet!So much happens in this, but the pacing was an interesting build to it, starting off slow with details I skimmed over to all of a sudden having a party to blow my mind. And such betrayal! Ugh, I could strangle a certain character right now. Writing style was good, thought a few things lagged, but overall still an entertaining read. On to the fourth book.

    22. I finished Monarch yesterday and I am still thinking about it. The ending was massive and I cannot wait for the 4th book of the series. I thought this one would be the final book but clearly there is much more in store for Katelyn. The descriptions were so vivid I am still picturing the final scenes in my mind, busily construing what will possibly happen in Book 4. I will be happy as long as A.R. keeps them coming, she certainly has impressed with this one!

    23. I would not have started this book (or series, for that matter) if I'd known that there will be a fourth book! I need to know what happens!This book was a nice, entertaining read. I was surprised by a few twists and that's always a good thing. The world building continues to be solid, but some of the analogies were a bit odd. Overall, a solid 4.

    24. Wonderful.I had to re-read the first two in the series before I read Monarch. I enjoyed the first two all over again. And Monarch was excellent. Twists and turns! I laughed out loud, truly. I also shed a tear or two. It was a wonderful story and I look forward to the next one, when I will enjoy reading the first three again. Thank you A. R. Ivanovich!!

    25. I love this series! And am excited that there is at least another book yet to look forward to. Ivanovich does an amazing job building a story and a land you can visualize so well. I love the adventure and love story wrapped into these books. So glad there's more to come. I love these books and recommend them to all my reader friends! I hope you enjoy them as well.

    26. I have really enjoyed this series. It helped to go back and read the other books first, just to refresh my memory. Rune is one of my favorite heroes and I love that we get to see him explore being free in this book and finding out more about who he is. Dylan is also a favorite of mine and can't wait to see how his character continues to develop.

    27. Thumbs UpI enjoyed reading Monarch. It is my favorite out of the three and I will be reading book 4 when it comes out. Haven intrigued me but then after reading Dragoon I almost didn't get this third book. I am pleased I did as I was interested all the way through. I was worried toward the ending and then was relived even I realized there would be a 4th book.

    28. Disclaimer: I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This series is amazing! There's action, magic, a bit of (not over the top, thankfully) romance, and of course, the plot twists!! They're worked perfectly into the plot, and keep me captivated.

    29. What a shocking twist! I'm loving this series so far. Really like the way the overarching plot is going, and I'm excited for the final installment. 4 stars because Katelyn's miraculous abilities and the romance between her and Rune are getting old.

    30. THIS SERIES IS NOT A TRILOGY? Why have I been so foolish? Ugh. Best book in the series and now I have wait for another installment to be completed. Lots of action and few crazy surprises I'm so glad the story continues. :)
