A troubled prince.

A deadly curse.

A mysterious cup.

And the power to save or doom the kingdom.

Of course things didn't go as planned at the Royal Games. When do things go as planned?

Now Zora is on the run, and has to join a disgraced prince in order to retrieve a magical artifact that might undo her valley's curse. For the first time in her life, she has real hope for her people.

Problem is, for the second time in her life, she's falling for someone she shouldn't. Finding a hidden object is hard enough on its own, she could do without the heart palpitations and lack of air. And she could certainly focus better without the constant memory of his lips on hers, his arms around her... Gaah! See? How can she avoid pursuers and decipher enigmatic writings when her brain has been turned to mush? Painful, hopeless mush.

But the real trouble is that there's more than one curse in the kingdom. And not enough objects or time to get rid of them all.

The Curse and the Prince is book 2 in the series Kingdom of Curses and Shadows, an enemies-to-lovers YA romantic fantasy for readers 15 and up who love snarky banter, magic, and adventure.

Review quote

"In this book we get to grow closer to the characters and fall just a little more in love with each one. I loved watching the characters grow and develop." Crossroads Reviews

"I simply loved the character growth shown throughout the book." Read N' Dazzled

"Our MC was as sassy as ever, which I loved (her feminist quotes were so inspirational, I feel like I should be writing them on my ceiling so I see them every day when I wake up) and (...) I found Zora's relationship with Griffin quite adorable." I Read in the Clouds

"I loved the banter between characters, and the court intrigue. But what drew me into this installment was the vulnerability Leitao writes into her characters. We see a side of Griffin we didn't see in book one." The World of Celia McMahon

"In all seriousness, get these books. They are a fun easy read that you will be able to fly through easily." Balancing Books and Beauties

"This book is a great fantasy story with characters that feel real in every action." Natyncolour

"I honestly believe that Day Leitao has a kind of super power to make others happy, as well as transporting you to the world that she is presenting." A Window to My Soul

"I love that it's not a conventional fantasy book, I think the way Day writes makes it more enjoyable and for casual readers who can't stand the typical dense language of traditional writers. Day's style is super distinctive and when I read her work it is as if I drank a glass of water." Bumblebeela
