Thanks so much for joining me on my stop of the Realm of Knights book tour! Huge thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for allowing me to participate and for forgiving my lack of review! ?
As you'll find out when you read the synopsis below, this book sounds freaking amazing! It's giving me major Mulan vibes - I love that right from the get go we're presented with such a strong female character and I was so looking forward to reading it.
Sadly, homeschooling, running a business and generally being a bit run down got in the way of me getting started and so, instead of my review, today I'm hosting an excerpt of the book and your chance to win a $100 Amazon Giftcard (open INTL).
Admittedly, I haven't even managed to read the excerpt myself yet but check it out and let me know what you think in the comments!

Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.
In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.
Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border.
Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.
To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.
As always, you can add the book to your Goodreads TBR by clicking on the book cover above and feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below!
