1001 Dark Nights Presents: The King (a Wicked Trilogy novella #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

TITLE: The King
AUTHOR: Jennifer L. Armentrout
RATING: 5 Stars
PUBLISHER: Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated (1,001 Dark Nights)
SERIES: Wicked #3.6 (novella)
SOURCE: eArc kindly provided by author
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new story in her Wicked series… 

As Caden and Brighton's attraction grows despite the odds stacked against a happily ever after, they must work together to stop an Ancient fae from releasing the Queen, who wants nothing more than to see Caden become the evil Prince once feared by fae and mortals alike.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.** 

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

Things are darker and shall I say sexier (hehe) in this new edition to the Wicked Trilogy spinoffs. It picks up right where we're left in The Prince and I am so here for it! Honestly I went into this thinking that this was like a duology spinoff but jokes on us! There's another book coming (thank goodness!) so if you're looking to tie up loose ends just beware that this novella is number two of three.

I really appreciate Brighton as a character. In the Wicked Trilogy I wasn't too invested in her but thanks to these novellas I am now a Brighton fangirl. She's determined to seek her revenge and the way Caden cares for her and is driven by his desire to protect this dangerous girl is something really awesome to see. Also I will say some questions (wink wink) we have are answered finally here and I was so glad it was all finally out. Though, when I think of it, a part of me expects JLA to shock me in the final novella.

If you enjoyed the Wicked books I cannot recommend more continuing to explore this modern world of fae in these novellas. Of course please begin with The Prince if you haven't already!

PAGES: 512

SERIES: The Harbinger #1

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.

When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed… 
(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

I want to start off by saying that yes this is a spin-off of The Dark Element series. It's not completely necessary to read that trilogy before starting this one but I personally believe you will come in with a better understanding of the world and some of the familiar faces if you do :). BONUS is you see a hot demon and our fave Stoney in that first trilogy.

I loved this book so much, I kept putting of reading it because I knew that once I picked it up I wouldn't want it to end and I was so right. We get to see an expansion of the world we're first introduced to in The Dark Elements series and it's finally detailed out more and we see a side of the world we didn't really get to see before, so many more doors were opened.

My little fangirl heart also appreciated seeing some familiar faces that I adore. I will say I wasn't always the biggest fan of Zayne in the original trilogy mostly because I felt like we never truly got to know him, it just seemed like there was so much more to him than we were given. However, after reading this book, I can now honestly say that I love Zayne and who he is as a character. We're finally able to see him blossom in a way and see more to him, he's no longer just that teenager who does whatever he's told no matter the costs.

Trinity holds a special place in my heart. She's so relatable, and honestly surprisingly reminded me a bit of Layla in just how she's attempting to be at least a semi-normal teenage girl. It's also important to point out the own voices factor here as Trinity suffers from a condition that the author herself has, it gives us a close up view of what it's really like and the struggles they both go through and face. I have such a respect for them now especially after reading this book. 

I don't want to give away any spoils but I will say that I ship Zayne and Trinity so hard, and I just think the way their relationship is developing is such an incredible thing to witness. There are also some heart-stopping romantic lines in here that had me smiling like a goof. I cannot say enough good things about it, I am SO READY for book two!

MOONLIGHT SCANDALS TEASER 5AN.jpg

Excerpt:

Rosie needed to get going. She’d promised to help her friend Nikki move today, so it was time to head back to her apartment, get changed, and be a good friend for the day. She leaned— A soft, swift curse jerked her head up. Normally, she didn’t hear a ton of cursing in a cemetery. Usually things were quite quiet. A faint grin tugged at her lips. Cursing and cemeteries typically did not go hand in hand. She scanned the narrow path to her right and didn’t see anything. Leaning back, she looked to her left and found the source. A man knelt on one knee with his back to her as he picked up flowers that had fallen into a puddle left by the recent rainstorm. Even from where she sat, she could see that whatever delicate bouquet he’d carried was ruined. Placing a hand over her eyes, she squinted in the sunlight as she watched the man rise. He was dressed as if he’d come straight from work. Dark trousers paired with a fitted white dress shirt. The sleeves were rolled up to the elbows, revealing tan forearms. It was late September and New Orleans was still circling the seventh level of hot, currently as humid as Satan’s balls in the afternoon, so she figured if she was close to dying in her black dress, he had to be minutes away from stripping off the shirt. Still standing with his back to her, he stared down at the ruined flowers. His shoulders were tense as he turned in the other direction. His pace was brisk as he took the flowers over to an old oak tree festooned with Spanish moss. There was a small trash can there, one of the very few in the entire cemetery. He tossed the flowers and then pivoted, quickly disappearing down one of the numerous lanes. Oh man, that sucked. Feeling for the guy, she sprang into action. Carefully, she pulled half of the stems free and then leaned forward, placing the remaining in the vase in front of her Herpin tomb. She picked up her keys and as she rose, she slid her purple- framed sunglasses on. Hurrying down the worn path with patchy grass, she turned down the lane she’d seen the guy go down. Luck was on her side, because she saw him near the pyramid tomb. He hung a right there, and feeling a wee bit like a stalker, she trailed behind him. Of course, she could yell out to him and just hand him the other half of the peonies, but shouting at a stranger in a cemetery just seemed wrong. Shouting in a cemetery at all felt like something her mother would side- eye her over. And no one side- eyed quite like her mother. The man made another turn and then stepped out of her line of sight. Holding on to the flowers, she walked passed a tomb with a large cross and then her steps slowed. She found him. He was standing before a massive mausoleum, one guarded by two beautifully erected weeping angels, and he was just standing there, as still as those angels, his arms stiff at his sides and his hands closed. She took a step for- ward as her gaze drifted to the name on the mausoleum. de Vincent. Her eyes widened and she blurted out, “Holy baby llama.” The man twisted at the waist, and Rosie was suddenly standing within mere feet of the Devil. . That was what the gossip magazines called him. That was what most of her family called him. Rosie liked to refer to him as in her wildest dreams.

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

Oh holy llamas! I am so sad/thrilled to finally have finished this trilogy. It's all bittersweet - I loved these books and characters so much it's sad to say goodbye but also I am so freaking proud of all of them!

I feel like most of us have waited for the day the Devil, I mean Devlin, would be brought to his knees and boy oh boy does our girl Rosie deliver. Rosie is everything different from Devlin. She's seemingly carefree, a bit of a free spirit, and knows how important it is to live everyday fully and without regrets. She's also gentle and caring and I love how she refuses to quit on Devlin. Their relationship is by far my most favorite of all them, they in a weird twisted sense just make sense. 

Rosie has had a less than sunshine and rainbows life, in fact she's faced a lot of darkness in her past. And Devil, oooh Devlin, he's our favorite wicked knight who is in a way just as broken as Rosie. It's a beautiful thing to see them come together and how they make each-other become more. Plus let's not forget that Rosie is a part of N.O.P.E which is just like the best thing ever haha!

Hands down my favorite book in the trilogy, with so many twist and turns and plots that have been expertly weaved since the very first book that my silly little self over-looked. The spook factor is high in this one and I am soo here for it! What an amazing conclusion to a series that had me jumping and questioning everything I thought I knew about certain characters in this book.
