"I am of the House of Lara, daughter of Elvira of Nailani, sister of witches, and I have come to reclaim my crown."
Isolde, newly coronated queen, has finally found a king worthy of her in the vampire Adrian. But their love for each other has cost Isolde her father and her homeland. With two opposing goddesses playing mortals and vampires against one another, Isolde is uncertain who her allies are in the vampire stronghold of Revekka.
Now, as politics in the Red Palace grow more underhanded, inexplicable monster attacks plague the villages, and a deadly crimson mist threatens all of Cordova, Isolde must trust in the bond she’s formed with Adrian, even as she learns troubling information about his complicated past.
The next book in the scorching, bingeable vampire fantasy series by USA Today and international bestselling author Scarlett St. Clair.
St Clair's explosive second Adrian and Isolde romance (after King of Battle and Blood) finds emotions running high between the eponymous newlyweds. As vampire Adrian hunts the traitorous men set on assassinating Isolde, who they feel is unworthy of her new title as queen of Revekka, Isolde struggles with guilt about her desire to return to her homeland rather than commit to her husband's kingdom and worries that Adrian resents her for her lack of magic. While Isolde grapples with her feelings, Adrian struggles to control his body from Dis, the goddess who created and holds him. When an old enemy set on destroying the couple resurfaces, it threatens their very foundation—but the danger may be just the push Isolde needs to reconnect with her ancestral magic. Series fans should expect more of the same lively banter, bloody violence, and highly charged sex scenes that made the first book such a page-turner, plus an ending that will leave readers eager for the next installment. This more than lives up to expectations.
Book 1 and 2
They were just ‘okay,’
Where is #3
So in love with this series? But cliff hangers like a MF!! I need book 3 now!!
Did not live up to the First book
I LOVED the first book! Not that I dislike the second installment but it’s just not the same. Isolde’s blindness, lack of logic and immaturity in some situations really bothers me especially since she’s such a strong independent woman. I feel like the author is trying to make her SO strong and independent that now shes written Isolde as more of an irrational drama queen who argues just to argue because her rage overcomes her. The ENDLESS overdramatic and pointless arguments between Adrian and Isolde became old a coiled chapters ago. Other than that, the story + world building is absolutely amazing. The plot is well paced, keeps me on my toes and is very intriguing. I love the characters and how complex the storyline is.
