American Royals III: Rivals by Katharine McGee

Book Genre Block - "Young Adult" with 4 young adults
Book genre block - "Royalty" two small crowns

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When I read American Royals, I fell in love with this alternate United States world. I loved the characters, the family, and the problems. I, of course, gobbled up book 2, Majesty, when it came out, and THEN, book 3 came out, and I was ecstatic!

This book was such a growing point for so many characters. Like the other books, the story is told through a variety of POVs. I enjoyed each of them and found myself particularly interested in the growing friendship between Nina and Daphne. Daphne is one of my least favorite characters in this series, and I almost found myself liking her in this book.

I also really enjoyed Queen Beatrice as she navigated a really important meeting for all the kings and queens of the world. Her mistakes and missteps along the way showed how much she has to learn, but also how great she is at learning and growing.

I really enjoyed this one, and I absolutely need the 4th book now. This one ended in a place where I NEED to know what happens next! If you are into stories of royalty and YA absolutely read this series!
