Review – A Kingdom of Blood and Betrayal by: Holly Renee

My fate is bonded to two princes– one born of blood, the other of power— but my trust lies in neither.

My skin is cursed by the stars, my fate damned by desire.

But when the dark prince offers me a bargain that will save his people and my life, the cruel and intoxicating male gives me no choice.

Our union is his revenge, and I am his sacrifice.

His lies are unforgivable. His wicked touch still bathes me in sin.

He is my mate, and he is tortured by a curse to protect his people from his own family.

I could now see him for exactly who he was. So why can’t I get his alluring touch out of my head?

I am the key to saving his kingdom, but he alone has the power to ruin me.

“It is often that we are ruled by hate far more than we are ever controlled by love.”

That ending is gut-wrenching. With A Kingdom of Blood and Betrayal, I could not read through these pages fast enough. Once I hit chapter 20, I was so hesitant to read it because I knew not only was it the end but that it would tear my heart out. It was such an amazing installment and I loved each burning moment.

I love how our crew and all of our favorite characters grow and become even closer in this installment. I love the training, the harsh, and the playful scenes. They all weave together so wonderfully to showcase our crew. You can also add Sorin and Thalia to my ever growing list with Jorah!

“This is my choice, Evren, and I choose you.”

With Evren and Adara, my heart hurt for them, soared for them, and then came crashing down again. The constant fire and ice between these two rips through the pages and I could not get enough of it. I love how Adara really took control of her power and strength in this installment and I am sure it will only grow. Evren of course is what dreams are made of and easily is one of my favorite book boys.

Overall, A Kingdom of Blood and Betrayal really dives deeper into the other side of this world and the relationships we see. It reveals even more secrets and make us fall even deeper for all of our characters. With that ending [*SCREAMS* SHE SAID IT], I will anxiously be awaiting the third book. March cannot come fast enough!
