Majesty by Katharine McGee

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I love books about royalty. I read American Royals and fell in love with the characters and the re-imagining of American history. When I got the chance to grab the second book, Majesty, I was SO excited. This book did not let me down!

Majesty picks up just a little after the end of the first book in the series, American Royals. We find the royal family, and the entire country mourning the death of the King. Beatrice is now the reigning monarch, and the first Queen in United States history. Her sister is not the next in line for the throne, which was a position Sam had never expected to be in, and Nina is happy to be out of the spotlight that comes with being friends with the royal family.

I loved that this book again provided different POVs from the characters. We have Nina, Beatrice, Sam, and Daphne all telling this story. This story still doesn’t make me like Daphne, but I really came to respect Beatrice. I loved watching her take on her new responsibilities, and work through all the problems.

The relationships were still exciting as each character discovers a bit about themselves and what they want in life, and in a partner. I don’t want to give away anything about the romances, but I thought they were just as good as the first book!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I loved getting to see the characters grow and mature, as well as follow their relationships.

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Majesty to readers that enjoy young adult fiction with romance and a bit of coming-of-age. I highly recommend you read American Royals before reading this book. You can find my review here!

Is America ready for its first queen?

Power is intoxicating. Like first love, it can leave you breathless. Princess Beatrice was born with it. Princess Samantha was born with less. Some, like Nina Gonzalez, are pulled into it. And a few will claw their way in. Ahem, we’re looking at you Daphne Deighton.

As America adjusts to the idea of a queen on the throne, Beatrice grapples with everything she lost when she gained the ultimate crown. Samantha is busy living up to her “party princess” persona…and maybe adding a party prince by her side. Nina is trying to avoid the palace–and Prince Jefferson–at all costs. And a dangerous secret threatens to undo all of Daphne’s carefully laid “marry Prince Jefferson” plans.

A new reign has begun….
