Royal Disgrace was not what I expected it to be. If possible, Lynx gave the story more personality than the characters. Grace is my favorite heroine. She refuses to swept off her feet. She lives in the real world and has the baggage to prove it. Nick has a dreamer's soul, but is hindered by duty. A reversal of roles gives a fresh twist to the royal fantasy. Lynx rewrites the narrative of what a fairytale should be and makes it more attuned to the real world with the ever present culmination of heartwarming.
