This book fails on two out of three. It's like she rushed to put it together. As far as I'm concerned Stephanie had no Challenge whatsoever. There was no conflict. Ms. Eidem only paid any potential conflict lip service. She had a couple of memorable moments with her brother on his business trip and King Jotham having interaction with his soon to be bride but none of that had anything to do with our heroine. Two years in the making, Ms. Eidem should have done better. Maybe she should cut back on her vacations and late night reading and put more time into her craft which is writing books ( in case she forgot). Personally I would pass on this and wait for the next one in the series. At Ms. Eidiem's pace that should be about a decade from now.
This book though, was not up to her normal standard. It felt forced, the characters were two dimensional, and it was a really big woman power preach fest. I've been looking forward to it and I was disappointed.
Give the series a look, you'll love it! Just don't start with this one.
Having said all that, the typos and errors continue. I'm not someone who is bothered by them but I
feel that after the first few books a writer, should pay more attention to errors, particularly when the books take so long between publishing dates. I am still a fan and will continue to be. I would also like to know ahead of time when books are being released, I purchased this twice (my fault), had I known the e-book would be released within 10 days or so, I would have waited.
I didn't like Stephanie in Jacinda's Challenge - she seemed like a spoiled brat - and I didn't see much difference or growth in this book. Any challenge she faced was in her head (which I find so annoying with any character). Her character sort of killed the story for me. I was really excited about Ull, but it was a rough trudge... Treyvon was Good but... ugh... the main female character in that was too damaged. The last dragon book of the kiss series - Supreme's kiss was the best of her most recent writings. I hope she has more from that world. It has potential. I didn't really like Kirall until the end of book two of the three book series, but MKE really developed him.
The editing isn't great in her books, so when I start editing the books in my head, I know the story is lost. This was the problem here with Stephanie's Challenge and with Ull. Maybe also that the main characters didn't get together until the end? I like to spend some time with main characters together. Hopefully these do not become the norm and are just bridge books in their respective worlds because I'm really excited about Aimina and Barak and am looking forward to how Earth will now factor in to the Tornian & Kaliszians worlds.
A theme in all the challenge books has been some form of discrimination and this book hits the mark with this one. I enjoy everything Michelle writes but her challenge series is my favorite and this book adds nicely.

Stephanie had a dream of being the first female royal guard for the House of Protection but one heroic action to save her King and her mother ended those dreams ,nearly costing her her life . Unable to continue the same physical training regime (due to her injury) she is offered the Commanders position in the house of Protection, that has been reinstated due to the growing numbers of royalty .
This book follows Stephanies journey with its ups and downs and how she deals with this including ,meeting her life mate , becoming a princess (oh yes she's not happy on that one ) and an arrogant purist who is very vocal on women in the coalition and why she shouldn't be commander .
I highly recommend this book .
I would recommend you read this series in order so you can follow each individual character as the books flow nicely into the next and are intertwined with each other.
I can't wait for Barek and Aminas book next .
Happy ☺ Reading
Resigning from the Coalition fleet and promoted to Commander of all royal protection and combining her role of princess. Finding her life mate and dealing with anti female prejudice before the Union of Jacinda and Jotham is celebrated.
