Publisher's Summary

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.

Contains mature themes.

So bad.

I thoroughly disliked this book. The main character isn't at all likeable and the story is lazy and poorly written.

A light romantasy

This story reminded me of From Blood and Ash but without any world building and less fleshed out characters. This is not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you're looking for something light and quick. The narrator gave it a good go and I was sad not hear more from the male character's perspective. While initially jarring, his voice grew on me in the bonus chapter.

Spicy AF

if you've never read a spicy book before then maybe don't start with this one 😂 the story is a bit on the predictable side, and the pacing is quick, but that doesn't mean that it isn't incredible. I cannot wait for the second book 🙌🏾🙌🏾

It’s ok

Not bad, if you like Scarlett’s other stuff you won’t mind this one. I felt the story was a bit lacking with huge leaps in the end that seemed rushed and a bit unrealistic. Very raunchy but sometimes unceasingly so. Just meh for me.

Pure Escapism

Such an incredible story. Kingdoms & conquerors, witches, monsters & vampires, lots of spice, enemies to lovers, so much tension, the heroine/ princess main character is fierce and literally stabs/ kills any man who touches her uninvited or that thinks they can control her, so many plot twists, so many layers of depth to the story added so there's a lot to keep up with but all at the right time so you can keep up easily. I listened to it on audible while cleaning and loved it. Now to start the next book. If you're a Sarah J Maas fan you've got to give this a go.

Interesting story great narrator

the story was enjoyable but the ending was a bit underwhelming. I found myself sucked into the story and wanted the secrets revealed. But the ending was a little disappointing and they had a teaser of the next book with the male narrator and his female voice characters are very annoying.
