 Synopsis:

She’s everything he wants….

Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.

She’s everything he can’t have…

Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she wants to do is help him, but he leaves her little choice. Forced to work alongside him, she begins to see the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.

She’s everything he’ll take….

But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone close to him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing between them each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be his undoing.

She’s everything he’d die for….

My Review:
I devoured this novella basically in one night. Staying up later than I should have with work the next day. I love the Wicked trilogy, and getting to have more characters’ stories told was like Christmas and my birthday all wrapped up in one. The Prince was a character we hated in the Wicked series, so at the end of that one, when you knew more about him, it left an opening for more story with him. Brighton was a character that we saw around in the stories before, mainly with her mom who was a little out there due to some earlier issues. In this story, the Prince is annoying, as many times the hot guy is, but it is an attraction that grows on you, just like it does for Brighton. So that’s why the way this ends is so much of a heartbreaking cliffhanger! Armentrout is really going to have to write more with these characters for us. I’m not sure how long I can wait, or if I can wait, if there is no plans for more. 

Of course one thing I really, really enjoyed was that even though our main characters weren’t Ren and Ivy from the original trilogy, we still got lots and lots of Tink! I love Tink so much, and he was still so much fun in this story! I’ll probably read any story that’s got him in it, but even more now, I need to know about the King!!! 
 

 

 

 

Excerpt:

I opened my eyes, but I didn’t see the sun. I saw a form… a
shape of a man. The features blurred, but I knew the man. It was him.

The Prince….

But that also didn’t make sense. None of this made sense.
Confusion crept into the fuzz crowding my thoughts. Something was off. I tried
to lift my hand, but my arm felt like it was weighted down. Something was
wrong, very badly wrong, and I needed to remember—

Sleep.

The desire to slip away hit me hard and fast, obliterating
the confusion and consciousness, and I slept. I slept for what felt like years
and then I heard a steady beeping. It intruded on wherever I was, becoming so
loud, so obnoxious to me, that I had to pay attention to it. A part of my
consciousness zeroed in on the sound, clung to it, and I followed it back,
tethering myself to the rhythm. With each passing second, my surroundings
became clearer. Footsteps. I heard footsteps. Whispers. There was the sound of
hushed voices. I dragged in a deep breath, and a shock hit my system. The
breath hurt. Like my chest and ribs
were too tight and a simple deep breath was too much to take—

Mom.

I saw her in my mind, as clear as day.

I saw her lying on her back in the darkness, her eyes wide
and fixed on mine. There was nothing behind those eyes. No life. Nothing.

The beeping sound sped up.

The horrifying image of my mom faded like smoke, replaced by
luminous skin and bloody smiles and taunts and…

Pools of blood. Actual pools of it. The ruby-red liquid
spilled across stone, forming rivulets that ran between the spacing in the
pavers. Why had there been so much blood? A vague feeling of wet warmth
bubbling up my throat and choking me swept through me.

“Bri? Are you awake? Brighton?”

      It's a series name, but by all different authors. Usually the stories are related to some series they already have? I don't know. Might be a publisher as well. I like when they do little novellas like this. It's a fun way to get the novellas out there easily.

      She is definitely a highly recommended author. One that I feel is not as well known outside of the blogger and indie world. Hopefully you'll give her books a try! Thanks for stopping by!
