King's Rising - Review

Damianos of Akielos has returned.

His identity now revealed, Damen must face his master Prince Laurent as Damianos of Akielos, the man Laurent has sworn to kill.

On the brink of a momentous battle, the future of both their countries hangs in the balance. In the south, Kastor’s forces are massing. In the north, the Regent’s armies are mobilising for war. Damen’s only hope of reclaiming his throne is to fight together with Laurent against their usurpers.

Forced into an uneasy alliance the two princes journey deep into Akielos, where they face their most dangerous opposition yet. But even if the fragile trust they have built survives the revelation of Damen’s identity—can it stand against the Regent's final, deadly play for the throne?

Book Breakdown

Wow! I can't even over how amazing this book was. We finally get to see Damen be his true self and Laurent dealing with it. There was a little something in here that I didn't see coming that I really loved. We see them work together and damn, they are such a great team! They work so perfectly together. Brains and muscles all rolled into a winning duo. I just loved the mind games and watching the two fall in love.

I really enjoyed the plot. It kept me on the edge of my seat and had my brain working overtime trying to keep up with every little detail and trying to work through everything. I read this one in a few hours because I just couldn't stop. My eyes were so blurry and burned afterward but it was so worth it! 

If you're looking for some amazing storytelling, amazing writing, some great LGBT rep, and just something to lose yourself in; I fully recommend this series! There is graphic sex scenes in the series and some darker stuff that sensitive people will probably be triggered by, so be aware of that, but for those that can handle it, read it now! It's great! You'll thank me later, I swear.
