    The first sister of this series! I was so excited to be able to read this book. And it makes me want to read about the twins even more. Plus this story (though no spoilers here!) leaves in a place where I want to read the next stories even more to find out what happens!

    I don’t really know what to write about the characters. Adelaide was stubborn yet sweet. However, my favorite character was Mitchell. Like give it a chapter and you’ll be in love with him too. I wish he could’ve been the hero for this story. Christopher made me want to wring his neck at certain points, but he was loyal and true which made up for it.

    The cover is also just beautiful. Although it doesn’t fit Adelaide’s personality, it is really pretty. If I lived back in that time I would totally wear a dress like that. 5 stars to the cover artist.

    If I could do half-stars I would give this book 4 ½ stars as I liked the first novella just a little bit more. Evermore was still super enjoyable. I would definitely recommend.

    After reading the prequel novella, Always, I knew I wanted to read the entire Lost Princesses series. Book One, Evermore, did not disappoint. When the woman who raised her is on her deathbed, she discloses Adelaide’s rightful identity with this request, “God saved your life, Adelaide. And now it is time for you to give it back in service to Him as the ruler you were born to be. Promise you will do so.” Is it true, is she one of the three lost princesses? Will she be able to find her two sisters

When the woman who raised her is on her deathbed, she discloses Adelaide’s rightful identity with this request, “God saved your life, Adelaide. And now it is time for you to give it back in service to Him as the ruler you were born to be. Promise you will do so.” Is it true, is she one of the three lost princesses? Will she be able to find her two sisters before the evil King Ethelwulf? Author Jody Hedlund is a skilled storyteller transforming an exciting page-turning adventure with an element of romance into a true fairy tale. The Lost Princesses Series is not just for young adults. I am far removed from that age group and I am loving it. I do suggest you begin this series by reading the prequel novella first. I’m eagerly looking forward to Books Two and Three!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher and author. The opinions are completely my own.

    “I think we are all in need of taming,” Christopher answered with more seriousness than I expected. “If we are blessed to find someone who is willing to kindly speak truth into our weaknesses, then we shall be better for it.”

    This is book 1 of the Lost Princesses series but there is a prequel novella called Always that would be helpful to read before embarking on this dazzling series. Jody Hedlund takes us on a breath-taking journey of medieval YA fairytale involving three “lost” princesses finally coming of age and discovering that there is a kingdom to rescue. The author’s beautiful writing, tightly knitted plot with great action and plenty of twists and turns, realistic and totally lovable characters, and themes of forgiveness and mercy even in the face of bitterness and family feuds all make this book clearly a top pick for the year.

    Adelaide (Princess Constance), who is the oldest of the princesses, has been tucked away in Lord Langley’s family as a niece but discovers her true identity before Lady Langley passes away. Christopher is the disowned elder son of Lord Langley who secreted away to a neighboring nation as a soldier when the new king forcibly took the throne. Christopher’s return home causes much trouble between himself and his younger brother, even as they try to figure out how to find the other two princesses to restore the rightful heirs to the throne.

    This book is a must-read for all! I can’t wait for the second and third books to get acquainted with the twin princesses!

    Warning: if you are looking for a coherent review, this is not the place to be. There will be much flailing and fangirling and asdfghjkl.

    Okay so I LOVED this book SO MUCH.

    Augh, lost princesses, hidden treasures, TALL JOHN. YOU GUYS, he said like three words but he is a without a doubt this book's MVP. I adored Christopher, he was such a fleshed out character capable of being both serious and joking when it seems like many characters are only able to be one of the two. And also I always like Jody

And also I always like Jody Hedlund's warrior ladies because those are the ones that I relate to more XD

    The one thing I would have liked was a little more to Mitchell's arc because I think he had a lot more potential.

    King Draybane was the absolute best! I think I laughed at everything that he said, this man...

    Like I said, no coherency here. If you get anything out of this review just know that I love this book XD

    Look! I even made a collage for it!

    Whenever I read series like this which have different protagonists each book, I like to try to figure out who the main characters of the next books will be ahead of time. Obviously the heroines are Adelaide and her sisters. The next book will probably be about Maribel since she is the next oldest. But what of the heroes? We have Christopher in this book, and honestly I think it is a huge likelihood that one four year old kid who disappeared during the invasion all those years ago is going to resurface *waggles eyebrows* (I'm guessing he is going to be Maribel's hero). But also I just want to point out how I would absolutely FREAK OUT if Ethelwulf's son and one of the princesses ended up falling in love (Emmaline anyone?) Because that would be a FANTASTIC twist asdfghjkl. After Adelaide tries so hard to not end up married to his heir and Ethelwulf is spending the series trying to make certain that she or one of the princesses does marry him and then those two kids end up going and doing it anyway. Oh my stars, that would be such an interesting plot. AND I WOULD 100% BE THERE FOR THAT ENEMIES TO LOVERS ACTION. But I digress.

    Needless to say that I am extremely excited for the next books and I NEEDED THEM YESTERDAY. Please and thank you. Also can I just take a moment to point out how absolutely excited I am for Lance and Felicia to come back onto the scene?? Because I'm pretty darn excited.

    I was provided a ARC from the author, all opinions, however are my own.

    'Do not underestimate me. I have never cowered from danger and I shall not start now.'

    Jody Hedlund's first book in The Lost Princesses is so good! The prequel novella, Always, sets the stage for this one, so it really needs to be read first. Adelaide, who is in reality the Crown Princess Constance, has been hidden for 17 years with a family loyal to her late father and mother, the king and queen of Mercia.

When her adoptive mother dies, she reveals to Adelaide her true identity. From then on, danger follows her as the evil King Ethelwulf is set on killing her.

    Sir Christopher of Langley, adoptive brother of Adelaide, left his home thinking his father supported the evil king, and swore his fealty to the King of a neighboring country. He has now returned and discovers that Adelaide is no longer a young girl and he has developed feelings for her. But he determines not to act on those feelings because as a queen, he cannot come near to being near her station.

    Hedlund has excelled once again with her medieval tale. Truly, I think this is her forte. She does a magnificent job with these stories. I love this time period and she is wonderful at it. I loved every minute and now I can't wait for the next lost princess's tale!

    This book is excellent! It had the right amount of action and romance. I loved it! This new series is captivating! I didn’t want to stop reading! I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

    All the Stars!!! Loved this story!!

    I am loving this new series from Jody Hedlund! The story is captivating, the characters are dynamic and endearing. First of all, let me say that you will want to make sure to read Always (The Lost Princesses 0.5) before picking up this story. As the stories build on each other. Always is a pure delight.

    I am loving this new series from Jody Hedlund! The story is captivating, the characters are dynamic and endearing. First of all, let me say that you will want to make sure to read Always (The Lost Princesses 0.5) before picking up this story. As the stories build on each other. Always is a pure delight. A stunning, fast-paced story that you don’t want to miss. But let’s return to talking about Evermore!

    This story is written in the first-person narrative that shifts between the two main characters. It really invites the reader behind the curtain and offers an intimate, personable view of what is going on in the mind of the characters. The story fairly leaped off the page an into my imagination and I was along for the blissful ride!

    Lady Adelaide is a force to be reckoned with. She is tough, yet tender. Fostered by Sir Langley and his wife Lady Susanna and raised with their three boys, she isn’t afraid to ride faster and swing a sword against a foe. Adelaide isn’t afraid to face difficult challenges and she takes time to pray and ask God for wisdom before making decisions. She has a big heart for others and wants to help those less fortunate. She isn’t perfect, but she learns from her mistakes and grows.

    I loved all the characters in this book!! The plot twists, the narrow escapes, and so much more! Trust me you won’t want to miss out on a moment of this exciting story. I can’t wait to read more and see which sister is the focus on the next story!

    Oh my goodness, I cannot get enough of this series already! I was already hooked with the prequel, so going in I knew I was in for a great ride, but Hedlund even exceeded those expectations! There were twists and turns that I didn't see coming, romance, loyalty, surprises, and a few moments that I did see coming. And yes, this is a YA book, but even so there were some smooches that are going in my swoony scenes list. I'm not sure if it was my hype about the kiss, the way Hedlund wrote the scene,

    Oh my goodness, I cannot get enough of this series already! I was already hooked with the prequel, so going in I knew I was in for a great ride, but Hedlund even exceeded those expectations! There were twists and turns that I didn't see coming, romance, loyalty, surprises, and a few moments that I did see coming. And yes, this is a YA book, but even so there were some smooches that are going in my swoony scenes list. I'm not sure if it was my hype about the kiss, the way Hedlund wrote the scene, or a combination of the two, but yeah - I was totally sighing afterwards.

    Lady Adelaide isn't your typical princess, and I think that's why I liked her so much. She isn't afraid to get dirty, to fight, to do all the things a guy does essentially - a tomboy in our day. And that's me to a T. Yes I can get dressed up, but I love doing guy stuff too! But here's the thing I liked about her even more - she was not afraid to stand up for what was right. From the very beginning she had this stance, and Adelaide would not back down from her decisions. She is just such a strong character and I look forward to seeing what comes next for her.

    Then you have Christopher. Boy did he have a past that was weighing heavy on him, and it got me thinking - he did what he felt was right, but it still weighed him down. Are there things in my life like that, and how can I get rid of them? I think perhaps Christopher had the most character development out of any of the characters, and I really enjoyed seeing his changes throughout the story. He was strong, yet vulnerable - especially when it came to Lady Adelaide. But at the end of the day he really just wanted to right his wrongs and be able to move on with his life. Something I'm sure we all can connect with at one time or another in our life.

    Hedlund keeps readers on their toes with tons of action as our characters try to stay hidden from the King's army. There's not much time to breathe here folks, so make sure you have plenty of reading time. I think you'll find you do not want to put the book down. The only downside to reading so quick is that it's over, and I'm just not ready to say goodbye to these characters. Now I just have to wait (impatiently I might add) for the next release!

    Shortly before her 20th birthday, Lady Adelaide learns that she's not just an orphan raised by a noble family who indulged her desire to learn jousting and leadership alongside her foster cousins. She's actually one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne. Unfortunately, the man who has conquered her kingdom has also recently learned who and where she is.

    Shortly before her 20th birthday, Lady Adelaide learns that she's not just an orphan raised by a noble family who indulged her desire to learn jousting and leadership alongside her foster cousins. She's actually one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne. Unfortunately, the man who has conquered her kingdom has also recently learned who and where she is.

    Adelaide flees with the sons of her adopted family -- scholarly Mitchel who she counts as her closest friend, and recently-returned warrior Christopher who has been branded a traitor for opposing the cruel King Ethelwulf. Together, they seek a legendary treasure prophesied to help a young ruler filled with wisdom rid the land of evil and usher in a time of peace.

    I love the story lines and characters in this book so much that I didn't want to put it down. Every spare moment of the day I was unlocking my phone and snatching a few extra minutes with the Kindle app. Adelaide and Christopher's relationship is sweet and they're so well matched for each other that I didn't even mind that he's probably not the best choice (politically speaking) for a future queen to marry. There are also a few unexpected twists that left me breathless waiting to find out what will happen next.

    Before reading this book, it's good to know that it is a fairy tale and not historical fiction. I almost rated it 4 instead of 5 stars because mention of the historical figures and places had me guessing at a certain time in British history, but events and social customs didn't fit the time period and I found it distracting. If you go into it expecting a fairy tale, though, then you'll probably love it.

    It's important to read Always before reading Evermore. Often you can skip prequel novellas, but in this case it adds quite a bit of depth to the story to read both together.

    My thanks to Northern Lights Press and Jody Hedlund for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

    to learn their identities and begin the work of reclaiming the throne.

    Lady Adelaide grew up doing everything her male cousins did. She can ride, hunt, and even secretly masquerade as a knight and succeed in tournaments. Benevolent to those who live on her estate, she's quite the catch now that she is entering the age for courtship and marriage. She is shocked when a deathbed confession brings forth the truth: she is the crown princess of Mercia, the rightful heir to the throne that was stolen from her father.

    Christopher left Mercia five years ago to serve the king of Norland, unwilling to put up with the loyalist position of his parents. When he learns that those leanings were a ploy to throw off any suspicion that they were raising one of the lost princesses, he begins to rethink everything. His younger cousin has grown into a beautiful woman, already vied over by many men who do not know her true identity.

    Events are set in motion that put Adelaide on the run for her life. Is there a way to defeat evil King Ethelwulf and restore peace and harmony to Mercia? How can she find her younger sisters, the twin newborn infants who escaped from the castle the day her parents died? Is Christopher's loyalty to her true, or is it born from his desire to raise his position in the land?

    Battles and wits play out in a race to keep Adelaide safe and take the next steps toward gaining the crown. Fans of fairy tales and young adult fiction will especially enjoy this new series from
