First, I want to thank Random House for sending me a free copy of this book. As many of you know, I am a huge Josie Silver fan. I absolutely adored her holiday novel One Day in December and could not wait to read this book.
Alison Sanger and Ethan Molloy are the protagonists of this novel. It is told from Alison’s perspective, and we meet her going to school with food poisoning. Why? Well, she and Ethan are rivals at school.
A young princess, Zaira, gets thrown into the role of being Crown when her father, King Jasper, unexpectedly passes. However, Zaira soon finds out that being Crown is not as easy as it may have appeared.
In Deadly Cross, though, we get not one…not two…but THREE murders we have to solve before the end of the book! Alex Cross is back in another heart-pounding mystery!
I enjoyed the Greek mythology mixed into the YA fantasy. This book’s action is spot on, and the characters do an excellent job of carrying such a bold, strong subject. HOWEVER, I have a few complaints.
