“The Duchess Quest” by C.K. Brooke – Book Tour, Giveaway, and Review

The Duchess Quest
Jordinia Book 1
by C.K. Brooke
Genre: YA Romantic Fantasy
All-New, Revised 2017 Second Edition
Love¬†is destined to find her…

Dainy¬†doesn’t know that she is the lost duchess of Jordinia, or that her

uncle has organized a contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand

as the reward!

Though¬†at odds, three clashing rivals–a noble giant, a forester, and a

thief–voyage together by woodland, plains, and sea to recover the

lost royal, notwithstanding assassins and spies at their tail. Soon,

Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic triangle as her

suitors compete to capture her heart.

Charmingly romantic and bursting with action, startling twists, and vivid

characters, fans of Anastasia and The Princess Bride will

adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and

unlikely love.




¬†Ok, I can see why some people may have enjoyed this book, but it just wasn’t my thing. I get that names for characters need to fit the story, but having so many difficult names made it quite confusing to keep track of who is who. It didn’t help that there were so many POV’s. With that being said, I gave this book a higher rating that I personally liked it because of the writer’s talent. I loved C.K. Brooke’s imagery and descriptive language. Very beautifully done. Had I liked and been able to follow the story line a little better, this would have been a 4 or 5 star book.

  1. With your review and a book I think my sister would enjoy, she too may get lost with the character names as well. She will more than likely read it and we’ll see how she feels after that. Congrats on the tour.
