    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...

    '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 revea...

    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 hyp...

    “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 med...

    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 lo...

    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. A stunning, fast-paced story that you don’t want to miss. But let’s return to talking about Evermore!This ...

    This is the first in Jody Hedlund’s new series, The Lost Princesses. I definitely recommend reading the prequel before this book as it sets up what happens here, helping the reader to understand the political climate and culture, as well as the backstory to the individual princesses and why they had to be raised separately and with no knowledge of who they really are. That being said, this novel is about the Crown Princess Constance, who has be...

    Seventeen years after the events of Always, it is time for the Lost Princesses 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 d...

    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 lo...

    I read the prequel to this book entitled “Always” and I loved that story so much that I knew I wanted to read the rest of this series. (You will not have to read that novella before reading this book, but it’s excellent.)This fairytale book has strong characters and a suspenseful, romantic storyline. Constance’s character is the driving force of this book. Even though she was not aware that she is one of the “lost princesses”, she was...

    After reading Always, which really sets the stage for Evermore and the rest of the series, I couldn’t wait to read this book! I loved the character development between Adelaide, Mitchell and Christopher. I couldn’t help but fall in love with all of them. Evermore is filled with intrigue, action, tragedy and most importantly, clean but swoon worthy romance, I would definitely recommend reading the prequel Always first! It is so good! Evermore ...

    I have always loved a strong female lead in a book. Even more so when its set in a historical novel! Evermore is part of a new series that takes us on a journey of the Lost Princesses. Book One is about Adelaide (Constance) and her discovery about her true identity. Adelaide is shocked and a little disbelieving when her aunts dying breath is to tell her she is actually the true Queen of Mercia. Adelaide would much rather Joust and hunt then wear ...

    This turns out to be just as a good as the prequel novella (Always). Lots of great action, amazing and intense plot, smooth and clean storyline. I didn’t know it will be this good. There are so much happening in the story that gave me so many feelings about this book.This is the story of the first lost princess (Princess Constance/Adelaide). The story focus on Adelaide finding the truth about her actual identity and her growth as a character. A...

    I just have to say it: Adelaide was quite the handful. She could give as good as she could take. With so much at stake, I kept expecting her to step back but she had never learned to do that. Growing up in the same house with two older cousins who were practically like brothers to her, she learned a lot more about hunting, fishing, fighting, and so on than she did about the ways of a woman. The greatest lessons, like believing, trusting, and serv...

Previously, three orphaned princesses have been hidden, each in a different home and place, so that the conquering and brutal King Ethelwulf. It has been quite some time since the brutal king took...

    WOW!I mean wow! Jody Hedlund got me excited in her novella Always but Evermore blew my mind alway so buckle down because this girl got a lot to say about this book. One, the books open with Adelaide jousting and I already knew that Jody Hedlund wrote strong heroine but I got really excited with Adelaide. I feel like a lot of times when YA authors write a "strong" heroine often time the female characters tend to be more masculine which seems ridic...

Its prequel novella, Always, was also a compelling read. Ms. Hedlund is a mas...
