Title: The King's 100
Author: Karin Biggs
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing date: 26th July 2020
Rating: 4/5 stars
Sixteen-year-old princess, Piper Parish, is a disappointment to the citizens of Capalon, a STEM-structured kingdom where innovation is valued above all. Her older sister, the queen, views Piper’s tears during their parents’ funeral as a weakness, not to mention her strange affinity for singing. When Piper receives an anonymous note stating her mother is still alive and living in the enemy kingdom of Mondaria, Piper chooses to risk death and flees Capalon to prove once and for all that she’s not just the queen’s defective little sister. Posing as a Mondarian citizen named Paris Marigold, Piper bumps into a cute black-haired boy named Ari who encourages her to audition for the King’s 100, an esteemed performance court of singers, magicians, and drummers. Piper lands a spot as a singer and dives head-first into a world of glittering dresses, girl-code, sugar, blackmail, and physical contact-all while taking direction from an evil maestro. Under Mondarian law, Piper will be killed if her identity is revealed. But living a life without the freedom to love might actually be the most dangerous risk of all.

The King’s 100 was not at all what I was expecting. Most of the young adult fantasy books I’ve read have been set in a medieval type world with castles, sword fighting and such. But I was pleasantly surprised by how the world of Capalon was so modern and innovative.
It was kinda strange (in a good way) to see the characters, especially the queen and the princess, using computers and lab equipment and riding around in hover pods! I really enjoyed this change from what I usually read in young adult fantasy 😀
I really enjoyed reading Piper’s story. She is a very brave character who took the leap into the unknown to find her mother, and found herself along the way.
And oh my god and isn’t Chip so so cute! I loved him so much and I want one for me! 😂❤️
Hope you all enjoyed my review! ❤️ I really loved reading this book and I think you guys will too! Have you guys read The King’s 100 yet? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments 😄 Bye guys, happy reading! x
