Adelaide has just been one of the cousins her entire life. She played with Christopher and Mitchell and learned the same skills they did.
No one ever guessed she was a princess. And no one ever guessed she would be called upon to save her nation from the evil Ethelwulf. And no one ever guessed that she would be the one to fulfill an ancient prophecy of a young ruler who would rise up in wisdom.
I loved Adelaide's character from Chapter 1. She was strong and determined, yet every inch the lady. The way she and Christopher both learn when to hold on and when to let go was beautiful.
But the character that intrigued me most was Mitchell. *A few spoilers ahead* I loved him in the first couple chapters, grew gradually annoyed with him in the majority of the book, hated him for a couple chapters, and then felt sorry for him in the end. His character was written well, with strong motivation for his actions that forced this reader at least to sympathize.
Evermore is a bit heavier on the romance side than some of the author's other young adult books. While that was a negative for me, that will be a positive for a lot of readers.
All that being said, Evermore would make a wise choice for the bookshelf.
