When a new enemy threatens her home, Riven’s only hope may be the man who made her a monster.

Riven has fought for a hard-won peace in her world, and has come to shaky terms with who and what she is—a human with cyborg DNA. Now that the rightful ruler of Neospes has been reinstated, Riven is on the hunt for her father in the Otherworld to bring him to justice for his crimes against her people.

But when she receives an unwelcome visit from two former allies, she knows that trouble is brewing once again in Neospes. The army has been decimated and there are precious few left to fight this mysterious new threat.

To muster a first line of defense, her people need help from the one person Riven loathes most: her father. But what he wants in return is her complete surrender.

And now Riven must choose: save Neospes or save herself.

This exciting sequel to The Almost Girl combines science, action, and romance in a compelling, hard-to-put-down package.


Thank you Sky Pony Press for sending me an ARC of The Fallen Prince. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.

The Fallen Prince was even better then book one. This was kick butt with non-stop action from start to finish. I love it when Science Fiction is done right and Amalie does it impeccably. She does not over complicate and over explain her plot which makes the story flow so smooth from one moment to the next. This series is visually stunning and I picture every scene on a big screen someday. 

Riven's growth as a person is leaps and bounds since book 1. I have enjoyed watching her come to terms with how her differences are what makes her special. However we get a little hiccup in her and Caden's relationship. Now that he is the ruler he has responsibilities and not the same liberties that his once freedom afforded him. 

The Fallen Prince has action, romance, heart, betrayal, death and love. You will be flying through the pages working through each emotion these scenes deliver. Amalie is such a fantastic writer. I have loved every book I have read that she has written. This was one of my favorites to date though. The Fallen Prince is a must read.

She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. She is the author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, VOYA, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read. She is also the co-author of the adult historical romance series, THE LORDS OF ESSEX.
