2012 book 80

Sherwood Smith's Crown Duel
Serviceable (in a good way!) fantasy about a young royal girl embroiled in war, and then in court politics. The protagonist is pretty interesting, and Smith keeps the story full of plenty of twists. The romance angle is utterly predictable, but I didn't mind that too much. The Kindle edition has a bunch of short stories from the love interest's perspective that are completely unnecessary and that I'd generally advise skipping unless you REALLY want to know what he was thinking as events you've already read are rehashed. B/B+.
