Description

An instant USA Today bestseller! From fan-favorite Scarlett St. Clair, the bestselling author of the Hades & Persephone series, comes a new fantasy filled with danger, darkness, and insatiable romance.

Their union is his revenge.

Isolde de Lara considers her wedding day to be her death day. To end a years-long war, she is to marry vampire king Adrian Aleksandr Vasiliev, and kill him.

But her assassination attempt is thwarted, and Adrian threatens that if Isolde tries to kill him again, he will raise her as the undead. Faced with the possibility of becoming the thing she hates most, Isolde seeks other ways to defy him and survive the brutal vampire court.

Except it isn't the court she fears most—it's Adrian. Despite their undeniable chemistry, she wonders why the king—fierce, savage, merciless—chose her as consort.

The answer will shatter her world.

    Lots of typos. Whole storyline felt rushed, no time to really get to know any of the side characters. Didn’t inspire any kind of grand emotion the whole time I read it. Just meh.

    I could not stop reading this the second I got it. Passionate, original, and captivating. They say that a hero may love but will always pick the greater good. But a villain will bring the whole world to it’s knees for that which they love.

    I could not put this book down. The swirl of taunting and mystery, secrets to be unfolded, and truths to be awoken. The sensual tension and release was breath-taking. I wasted no time in Pre-Ordering the next book.

    Really disliked the beginning of the book. The narrative/dialogue just felt shallow and cheesy but around middle to end the plot improves and there’s better character development.
