If you enjoy gritty medieval romance, then you will love The King's Obsession. Please note this is book four in The Companion series. These books are best read in order.
Trigger warning: This book contains abuse, violence and dark themes.
Oh my gosh, this series has been my all time favorite. I wasn’t even aware the series continued after book three and was delighted when I found out there were three more books!! I always loved and felt for Petra, so finally getting to see her as a main character was so exciting. I just wanted her to find happiness so badly throughout the first three books. I loved the way Petra kind of comes into her own, and also how we get to see the true Leksi and what has contributed to him being the person he is. Tanya Bird is truly an amazing author and you can see this in each one of her books. The pacing is excellent, the character’s are so complicated and deep, the writing is beautiful and flows perfectly. I absolutely love this series!!
The King’s Obession
Love the characters and the stories in all the companion series books. Each story has unique circumstances that make it hard to stop reading.
Impossible to put down!
Tanya Bird has certainly done it again! When I saw this book after finishing reading the third, I was skeptical. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read anyone else’s story other than Aldara and Tyron’s but within the first few pages I was convinced. I loved Leksi as a side character in the companion series and it excited me to see him finally getting his own story as well as getting to know Petra more after only briefly introducing her story in the last book. Their tale was a perfect follow up after Majestic Imposter. We get to see Aldara and Tyron enjoying themselves and the life they’ve made, finally, as well as their children and family. This book lends a closer look at all the characters we’ve wanted updates on as well as another pure love story and the perspective of a mother needing to know her child is loved. 100% recommend to anyone who loves a good love story matched perfectly with action and adventure.
