They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.

I will admit, I was terrified going into this final book.  I wasn’t sure how Sierra Simone was going to fix things between Ash, Embry and Greer.  Quite frankly, I wasn’t sure I was willing to forgive Embry for what he did to Ash.  But I had faith the author would make sure this threesome found their HEA in their own version of Camelot.

I think this was my favorite book in the series because Ash was truly the focus.  It was interesting being inside his head and understanding the depth of his love for Embry and Greer.  He needed both of their love, it was as important to him as air.  He may have enjoyed his dominance over both of them but he did all of it out of his love for them.

It was hard to forgive Embry for his attitude towards Ash and the things he had done.  I understood why and I understood how much he was hurting himself in his fight for what he thought was right.  But it hurt to see Ash and Greer suffering because of it.

Sierra Simone took readers on a roller coaster ride with this one.  Ash, Embry and Greer had a lot to work out.  Sometimes that meant Ash invoking his own sense of justice on the two people he loved.  Sometimes it was Ash trusting to be his most vulnerable and know they would take care of him.  But in the end, this version of Camelot got the ending it deserved.

 

Enthralling and drop dead gasp-worthy.

Excerpt:

When I was twenty-two, I met a prince.  He seemed to be the exact opposite of everything I was—loud where I was quiet, smiling where I frowned, careless where I was careful, careful, careful.  Embry joined the Army because Vivienne Moore wanted her son to craft the perfect politician’s resume.  I joined because it seemed like the place to continue my never-ending quest for honor; because becoming an officer in the Army had a certain cachet in my neighborhood; because I wanted to somehow cosmically return the favor for my college scholarship; because the structure and rigid hierarchy of military life appealed to me.

Most importantly, I joined because I knew Carpathia was the most dangerous place in the world at the time, and I felt needed there in a way I can’t describe.  It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it.  I knew that I was supposed to be there in the same way I knew that God was real or that I was bisexual.  It was a fact, even if it couldn’t be seen.

And after all that, then I see this lieutenant refuse to break up a fight?  When we were there on the brink of war and responsible for safekeeping innocents nearby?  No.  I wasn’t an angry person, but I was a disciplined one, and the one thing I couldn’t tolerate in other people was a lack of it.

I only meant to shake some sense into him, to tell him clearly and unmistakably that he wouldn’t get away with that shit while I was around, but then he turned, and I saw his face for the first time.

And it was over.

Done.

One look at those winter-blue eyes and those delicate lips and I was finished.  One glance at his lean, long body, and I was falling.  Every part of me responded with heat and flush and wrenching want, like a hook had been fastened somewhere in my chest and was now giving an almighty tug, and the only thing to ease the ache would be to get closer, closer, closer.

I’d never seen a boy so beautiful.  Haughty as he was, overindulged and so obviously dissolute, he was the loveliest person, boy or girl, I’d ever seen.

I still pinned him against the wall, though.  And it was when I had him against the wall with my forearm on his throat and my body trapping his that he sealed his fate.  As I was choking him, he looked at me with his whole world in his eyes.
