[COMPLETED] The royal palace was holding a competition choosing the most beautiful girls in the whole kingdom to compete. Their prize? Simple, they get to become the kingdom's next queen. Liana of Aris was happily living in her small town, she got free bread from their local baker, praising from her townspeople, and a family that loved her. When the palace men came knocking on her door, she counted the benefits of joining the competition and went with it. It wasn't until she got to the palace that she discovered staying in the competition was harder than she thought. When she thought things couldn't get any worse, something horrible started happening in the palace. Only Liana noticed what was happening around her. Will anyone listen? Will she be able to save anyone? Will she be safe? ***It may sound a lot like "The Selection" by Kiera Cass but trust me it's a lot different. If you liked "The Selection" or just the royalty genre, then I think you might like this.*** ------------ #44 in Historical Fiction 12/06/2016 Enjoy the royal genre? Check out my other book: Rivals.
