So after thinking about the last TRR chapter, I have some thoughts.
I know I’ve seen posts about how Liam didn’t defend MC or fight for her enough, but I think the man is in shock and everything happened SO FAST. I don’t think for a minute that he intends to marry Madeline but that he just did what he had to do to get this hellacious night over with so he can move forward with finding out what REALLY happened.
I don’t think Madeline is the traitor. I think she’s taking advantage of the situation or she herself is being used by…the queen. I think the Queen intends to find herself a pawn to put on the throne beside Liam. Someone she can put in a position of power so she can continue to “rule” Cordonia even after the king has stepped down.
I just keep telling myself this is only the first part of the story. MC has plenty of people who are never going to believe that she did anything wrong (and in Drake at least one person who KNOWS what really happened). I’m still PO’d about a lot of what has happened in this book, but I’m still excited/anxious to know what happens next.
