BOOK SYNOPSIS

Blair Reynolds was born to rule. Worlds, that is. Destined to reign over an ancient intergalactic race, it may seem her fate is written in the stars. But she’s willing to risk it all for another chance to spend forever with her true love – even if it means traveling through time and space to the other side of the universe.
As far as Ash is concerned, Blair's happily-ever-after involves him, not the mere mortal with whom she seems so infatuated. She was bequeathed to him by her father, and Ash will go to any lengths to keep Blair and her true love apart.
And Ash isn’t the only one.
Deep in the jungles of Brazil, where tribal drums call to Blair and her true love, other forces carry out dangerous secret plans.
However, Blair has secrets of her own … secrets so lethal she dares not even remember them. Secrets so painful they could ruin everything.
Because some secrets kill.

Shawna's Review

Belle Whittington tells a wonderful story of love and adventure in Monarch, the last book in the Cicada trilogy. From the minute I started reading I was hooked on this book. Its is non stop action and suspense throughout the book and the love story is a sweet and beautiful one. This book had me on my toes, crying, laughing and smiling. I was unable to put it down from the beginning to the end. unfortunately I wasn't able to read the first two books before getting into this one but Belle did a great job at making sure new readers didn't miss a thing and she did it without spending too much time in the past. She is also very good at telling a story with such detail that you feel like you are in the book with the characters but not too much that you feel overloaded with information that isn't relevant to the story. In the end she was able to put a great ending to Blair and Everette's story but keep some of the other characters stories open so that hopefully there will be more books on their world to come.

4.5 out of 5 stars

EXCERPT

I was no longer a bystander to this story. I was the story. Every secret interwoven through the tale I’m about to tell you belongs to me. And the summer I graduated from high school was the summer everything came together in a horrible clash of good versus evil.
Packing up and leaving my small, inconsequential, southeast Texas hometown meant leaving part of myself behind. I said goodbye to the human side of me when we piled into David’s truck and drove away from our home. And I waved farewell to any hope of ever returning as I watched our home slip into the shades of night.
Everything had been turned upside down, and deciding what was good and what was evil was like looking through sunglasses at night. It all washed together in a murky blend of darkness, shadows, and secrets.
My biggest secret of all was one for which I had no answer: which one was I – good or evil? I stuffed that secret deep behind my ribs and swallowed it down.
Some secrets are best kept in the darkness away from prying eyes and those who would seek to face them head-on. Some secrets kill.
