In Review: My Thoughts
If you saw my review for The Prince last year, you’ll know I had some pretty strong thoughts about it. I wasn’t aware Bri and Caden’s story was a trilogy when I started. Had I been, I still would’ve read it, but I would’ve been prepared mentally for cliffhangers. Despite the few issues I had with The Prince (some of which were more about my mood than the book, in hindsight) I still couldn’t wait to get my hands on The King. I absolutely had to know what happened next. And here I thought I was prepared…
But holy crap, y’all. This book. My body was not ready for it. The story picked up right after The Prince and it didn’t take long at all for me to get sucked back into the story. Probably even more so than I was with the first book, because I was basically desperate to know where the story would go. Of course, I’m not going to tell you anything about the plot beyond “gird your loins”. Things get real fast. Hang on tight and enjoy the ride.
Bri and Caden’s story is so, so good. It’s a huge understatement to say things are difficult between them, but I freaking love them together. This setting, the characters (Tink!) and the twists and turns of the story kept me flipping pages. It ended far too soon. The wait until the final installment is going to be brutal, but I’m here for it. The countdown has started!
“You’re a distraction. A weakness that I will not allow to be exploited.”
“I want to tell you I hate you. I want to tell you that I despise you, but you would know that it’s not true.”
“It means you are… you are my strength. My sun. You are my heart.”
