King by Kate Bonham Review
King by Kate Bonham Review brought to you from our latest guest reviewer Fiona Wilson.
Zane and Halen are brothers, but any thoughts of brotherly love was blown out the water many years before this story takes place. Zane was too much like his father for Halens liking, so he mainly stays out of his way. Living in his underground palace Halen rules his kingdom with a fair hand, unless crossed.
For years the brothers have managed to live apart with no issues. However it soon becomes clear that plans are afoot to banish Halen from his kingdom. He has to come up with a plan to avoid this at all costs.
The plan, kidnapping someone Zane is close to, leads to no end of problems for both brothers.
The story is a dark one, be warned, but it’s a good one. So good in fact that I read it in one sitting. What the characters go through isn’t nice, but everything happens for a reason.
You will never look at a pomegranate in the same way once you have read this story.
As much as I loved the main couple, I loved the character of Percy. I hope that the author is going to write his story as I feel it would be good to find out more about him.
It has to be right at the end of the story, the last chapter in fact. It brings everything to an end in a brilliant way.
4.5 out of 5 stars
