The King, Hardback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Long live the King ...After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle- with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she's unprepared for Wrath's response - or the distance it creates between them. The question is, will true love win out ...or tortured legacy take over?

Review by

I found this interesting several threads are being worked on and characters are trying to resolve issues that have been building over the past few books, several relationships are created and a few are made more complicated by several issues that have come to light. You can see how things that happen in this book will change the society of these long-lived people and how things will never be the same again. Wrath finds out more about himself than he ever thought possible and his life will never be the same again.It's an interesting read that I enjoyed, though I think at least one of the threads could have been their own book and story. The stories are becoming almost too complex and interwoven, concentrating again on just one couple would have made this a better read for me.
