Publisher Description

A generation past, the western realms were embroiled in endless war. Then the Destroyer came. From the blood and ashes he left behind, a tenuous alliance rose between the barbarian riders of Parsathe and the walled kingdoms of the south. That alliance is all that stands against the return of an ancient evil—until the barbarian king and queen are slain in an act of bloody betrayal.
Though forbidden by the alliance council to kill the corrupt king responsible for his parents’ murders, Maddek vows to avenge them, even if it costs him the Parsathean crown. But when he learns it was the king’s daughter who lured his parents to their deaths, the barbarian warrior is determined to make her pay.
Yet the woman Maddek captures is not what he expected. Though the last in a line of legendary warrior-queens, Yvenne is small and weak, and the sharpest weapons she wields are her mind and her tongue. Even more surprising is the marriage she proposes to unite them in their goals and to claim their thrones—because her desire for vengeance against her father burns even hotter than his own…

4.5 stars

I really got immersed in this story. Really good world building. There were times that I got confused over the characters and had to re-read to really understand all of them they were speaking of as it is so many. The slow burn romance was great. Wish it would have picked up a little sooner.
Definitely recommend this book. I’m on to the second one now!!!

So good! Must read!

This book is so good! It’s got everything: action, adventure, a slow building romance, spice, great storytelling, the monsters and world building were great, characters that you root for especially the heroine and hero of the story... 100% would recommend. The very beginning was a little slow maybe but then it gets going quickly and you won’t be able to put it down until you finish... and the ending was awesome. Loved everything about it.

This book is sexy and kept me reading and never wanted to stop! The slow burn of the romance and relationship between them is so satisfying and it captures your heart!
