Blog Tour: "The King's 100" by Karin Briggs + GIVEAWAY!

Hey guys! Today I am so excited to be on the blog tour for The King's 100 by Karin Briggs! This was such a fun, interesting book and I have a lot of awesome stuff for you guys in today's post including my non-spoiler review and a giveaway! You can follow along with the rest of the tour stops here!


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.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy 
Publication Date: July 26, 2020


When I first read the synopsis for this book, I was immediately intrigued. It sounded so interesting and exciting and right up my alley. A STEM-inspired fantasy? Sign me up! 

This is such a solid YA book to me. There’s action, intrigue, and a really riveting world with an interesting storyline. However, the characters are teenagers and act like such. This is so good to see as a lot of YA I read nowadays reads more as NA than anything. This book isn’t heavy or difficult—it has a lighter tone. It was quite refreshing and fun.

The world was so interesting. A STEM Kingdom in fantasy was so refreshing to read about since a lot of YA fantasy is set where there’s no technology and it’s reminiscent of 100 years ago. I really enjoyed the more modern fantasy setting and thought it was really interesting to see.

The characters were all interesting. I found Piper to be quite a fun main character to read from and I’m excited to see what her story looks like in the next book! The side characters and the romance were also really fun to read about, though I do with there had been more LGBTQ+ rep.

The storyline itself held my interest as well, though at times it felt a bit rushed. I think I would have been happy with slowing down a bit to spend more time on the different mysteries that Piper’s dealing with. 

Overall, I enjoyed this book and am quite excited for the sequel! A big thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours for letting me be a part of it!
