The perfect pause-resisting romance debut for fans of Game of Thrones.
Catalia "Cat" Fisa is a powerful clairvoyant known as the Kingmaker. This smart-mouthed soothsayer has no interest in her powers and would much rather fly under the radar, far from the clutches of her homicidal mother. But when an ambitious warlord captures her, she may not have a choice.
Griffin is intent on bringing peace to his newly conquered realm in the magic-deprived south. When he discovers Cat is the Kingmaker, he abducts her. But Cat will do everything in her power to avoid her dangerous destiny, and she battles her captor at every turn.
Although up for the fight, Griffin would prefer for Cat to help his people willingly, and he's ready to do whatever it takes to coax her - even if that means falling in love with her.

Almost Didn't Finish... Awful
Oh BOY, where do I begin? I normally don't write reviews because I'm not adept at it BUT I will try .....
The story was simply awful. Started off promising and just kept getting worse and worse with awful plot devices. The main character Cat is supposed to be this badazz "Kingmaker" but she falls to pieces over the roguish Griffin/Beta, who kidnaps her for his "own use".
It started off interesting enough. Cat the southsayer trying to escape and stay hidden, but it turns out Cat conveniently has (or is able to get) god-like powers, is able to steal magic, can ride dragons, call gods for help, is a trained killing machine, is a southsayer and related to the God Poseidon & MORE.... it was all a bit too much IMO. And it all comes out in the nick of time fashion, very deux ex machina.
Cat also has body issues *eye roll* ( it's as if the author had an idea board and said I'm going to put ALL of these things in ONE BOOK) and she remarks on her weight, in a annoying and obvious way.
The romance was nauseating. I don't get all the 5 stars and I'm not referring to the kidnapping part. Griffin makes remarks about her weight, and how he thought she was OLDER and he's glad she's YOUNGER and not experienced. Oh yea, joy! And Cat, the same badazz magic stealing, dragon riding, God-like heroine, melts and swoons. Her inner dialogue about how she never imagined she'd hear those words or have someone say those words is pathetic. Several chapters of the last 1/2 of the book were about Cat & Griffin going back n forth kissing. IDK if the author was trying to convey a build up of sexual tension or what, but Cat went from sounding like 20'syr, to a middle school'r not wanting to kiss, wanting to kiss, not wanting to kiss. Throw in the cliche jealous ex-girlfriend with every cliche'd phrase out there, and you complete the "Romance". Barf.
The ending was inane and it didn't surprise me.
