#Review: The Torn Prince by Zee Monodee | #RHOSaene

Prince Zediah is betrothed to a woman he doesn’t love as part of a peace treaty between their two countries. His heart, however, belongs to another woman, Riona. Zee Monodee presents a refreshing take on a familiar plot with her beautiful narration, a couple of twists, plus a great cast of relatable and realistic characters. Prepare to fall in love with the prince who doesn’t bulldoze his way into getting what he wants. I adored Zed through his journey to finding himself and winning the heart of the only woman he’s ever loved. I loved Rio’s strong personality and sympathised with the drama that is her family (mainly her mother). The scenes with their son, Nour, were simply adorable! The Torn Prince is book 4 of the Royal House of Saene series, but can be read as a standalone. It was great seeing some characters from the previous books. I highly recommend it!
