Review: The King

The King3

The King1


Skye Warren’s The King is dark, rich and utterly captivating!  The plot line is compelling, the writing is incredible and the characters are mesmerizing. Everything about the content of this beautiful yet incredibly twisted stroke of brilliance is appealing, thrilling and deeply moving.

The King spawned an entirely new level of obsession with Ms. Warren’s Masterpiece Duet. I absolutely fell in love with Penny and her deep intelligence, quiet strength and emotional maturity. Her determination to use her genius level wit to elevate herself from the circumstances surrounding her living conditions was inspiring and encouraging.  And Damon Scott!  I have been intrigued by his character ever since I read The End Game Series, and The King only intensified my need for more of his sexy, sensual and mysterious character.

I was hopelessly hooked on this series by the end of the first quarter of the book.  The King is stunning, spellbinding and filled with just enough heat and suspense to ignite a smoldering fire in my soul for more of Penny and Damon’s story!

The King is a magnificent display of dark romance that will appeal to all readers.  This is Ms. Warren’s first foray into the realm of YA novels, but do not let the title of the category fool you! There is so much depth to this novel; it will make you gasp, it will have you cringing and it will pull at your heart strings.

And that ending! Lord have mercy!  I am desperately in need to get my hands on The Queen so that I can see how the delicate dance between these two characters will end as they struggle for power and eventually pave their way towardsthe love that they both deserve. Plus I’m dying to see Penny earn her well deserved crown! 👑

YES, I am looking forward to more from the Masterpiece Duet and the romance lover in me is dreading the fact that I have to wait!

Well Done Ms. Warren!

Overall: 5/5 Royal, Resplendent stars!!
