Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton (non-spoiler review) // court politics, enemies and old friends

Book: Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton

Rating: 4 stars


To avoid spoilers, here’s the link!


I liked this book a lot more! The plot was more intruiging, especially now that the world had been set up. I lovee the political intrigue in this book. It’s one of my favourite things in books and I thought it was done so well! I love how minor characters aren’t just introduced and discarded. They all play a part in the story.


This book was longer and I liked the pacing! It still kept me wanting more but didn’t feel almost rushed like book one. The writing feels so rich and I loved the setting in this one.

I really loved how we got to see the POV of the ‘enemy’ as well. Often times in books it’s all just oh they’re the bad guy they did x, y and z. The only insight we get is their actions and rarely do you get to see their thoughts like this.


Amani: I’ve grown to really like Amani. She’s grown so much, is still growing, and just is so strong as a character.

Shazad: She’s just so strong and bad ass and I love her influence on Amani

Sam: Quite a comical characters and I love the relief he brings

I’m still not over Amani and Shazad! Strong female friendships!!


Still not on board, but I like their dynamic!

  1. Nice review! I’m glad the pacing didn’t feel as rushed for you and that the political intrigue was well done. I mean, I’m such a sucker for slower-burn books with good politics, so I’m pretty curious to check out this series. 😛
