Poetic King, daughter of the infamous Noie King, has pretty much had everything handed to her on a silver platter. Although spoiled by her family, Poetic is far from naive. With their entire family deep in the game, Poetic knew early on what it meant to have money, power, and influence. She and her twin sister Lyric have always been close, but one deadly night with their little sister Melody being left dead, Poetic feels she can't trust anyone.

I enjoyed this why isn’t it on KINDLE??
I have read just about all of Myss Shan’s books and per usual, her content doesn’t disappoint. I read this novel in about a day and a half. I thought by the synopsis that I wouldn’t be able to get into it but I was wrong! I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning! I can’t wait to read part 2
