FTC FYI: Received a paperback copy in exchange for an honest review.
Krystal's peaceful life as queen of Fayterra is shattered when a stranger arrives with a connection to Jareth that threatens to change everything. Soon her loved ones are threatened, her people are under attack, and Krystal must face a devastating loss. As the future becomes bleaker and the mystery continues to unravel, Krystal's enemies will learn just how far she will go to defend the people she loves.
Her heart paused, but Krystal remained defiant.
"You lie. You would never do such a thing to my child."
"You think not?" He laughed again and she drew back. "I've sworn an oath to annihilate my dear cousin's present and future, take over his kingdom and his crown, and fulfill my father's dreams. And you think I would hesitate to murder his offspring? Come now, Krystal. I know you are smarter than that."
I have been a fan of Cheri's for a long time. I was thrilled to be apart of the Blog Tour for The Tyrant King. This book is full of romance, suspense, and action. Not only is it page-turning, but you will immediately care about the characters as you read about their continuing story. Krystal and Jereth's love story remains strong, and we get to see them as caring and loving parents. Donovan is a bad guy that you will love to hate. And, for fans of The Wild Queen, there is a surprise for you at the end.
My daughter Michalla is also a huge fan of Cheri's, who is very generous with her fans. Michalla emailed Cheri telling her how much she enjoys her books, and Cheri was gracious enough to answer her back, and sent a signed book (for the both of us). Michalla is always telling her friends about these great books.
4 out of 5 stars. Krystal is such a wonderful character, a strong woman who fits for what she wants. I"m excited for Book 3 next year.
