A Second Chance at Love, by Kassandra Lynn

True love doesn’t exist. Forever belongs in a storybook. Empress Ursila Ufran ran away with Royal Healer Draven for love. What she found was regret and heartbreak. Draven had approached her with an agenda, her father had committed treason, and everyone in House of Ufran had been beheaded. When a magical amulet gives her a second chance at life, she has to avoid her mistakes and prevent her family’s downfall before it’s too late.

I enjoyed A Second Chance at Life, so it was a no-brainer to read A Second Chance at Love. I wondered how the author would keep the story fresh, without it just being a rehash of the first book. I’m happy to say that this was accomplished by great storytelling, and as the description on Amazon says, you can read either book first.

An unlikable protagonist is often a cause for alarm in a story, but Ms. Lynn pulls it off nicely. A spoiled Empress is betrayed by who she thinks is the love of her life only to wake before the events of her death. She has a chance to correct everything. And she’s a spoiled brat, just like Elaina from the previous story. But it seems to work. By the end I was rooting for Ursila, and was glad to have read the book.

Like the previous book, the time period is not specified, but this one feels like ancient Asia. The writing flowed smoothly – more so than the last book. The characters are interesting, and none of them feel like clichés.

In the end, A Second Chance at Love is a fun love story, and like its predecessor, is a four-star read. Kindle Unlimited subscribers can read this one for free.

Kassandra Lynn is the author of Book of Immortals series and Demon Kingdom Fairy Tales series. Her favorite genres are fantasy and romance. She especially enjoys reading and writing about unique concepts, unpredictable plots, and protagonists who aren’t the typical protagonists.
