With Teen & Young Adult Romantic Fantasy proving ever popular Galloay weaves a delightfully spirited tale that courts intrigue from the very first page as she brings her Velazian setting to life.


The Royal Matchmaking Competition doesn’t have a particularly complex plot but it doesn’t need one as Galloay’s forte is in finding the perfect balance between blossoming romance and heart-rending indecision coupled with superb character development. There’s the dazzlingly handsome Zazan, Prince of Eldoren, Qinrel The Prince of Nololay, The Knight of Centaurus City and the lowly actor Kip with a heart of gold, but will love prevail or politics force Princess Qloey to accept her mother’s choice of suitor in the repulsively priggish Prince of Baylor?


There’s all the drama and sensibilities expected of the Teen & Young Adult Romantic Fantasy genre with a sprightly narrative and richly layered detail that creates a genuine sense of time and place. But what makes Galloay’s novel most notable is her unerring ability to delve into the minds of her characters who she vividly brings to life. 


On this level, Galloay’s penned more than a captivatingly voyeuristic novel. It’s piquant and playful as she puts her readers in touch with the battle of emotions raging in Princess Qloey whilst the mood is further augmented by a bewitchingly vibrant blend of mischief and subtle levity which provides timely relief from the mounting tension.


As Qloey’s dates with her amorous suitors unfold Galloay’s narrative expands to include a darker subplot with shocking revelations and new alliances formed. We know what we want to happen – what must happen, given the conventions of the Royal Matchmaking Competition but with a character with no redeemable qualities like Clayton in the mix, Qloey’s final choice goes right up to the wire to give Galloay’s readers a cracking ending!


Cheeky in its approach, spirited and splendidly written The Royal Matchmaking Competition is a must-read for fans of Teen & Young Adult Romantic Fantasy and is highly recommended.
