King Midas made me the woman I am today. Notorious. Unattainable. His.

The thing about being confined is that you believe it’s to keep the bad out... Until you realize it’s about keeping you in.

I’m now in a strange kingdom surrounded by liars, with no allies of my own, but I won’t sit idly by and let myself wither. No, there’s something that’s bloomed from the pit of my repression. Something dark. Something angry.

But the last thing I expected was for my anger to call out to him. King Ravinger.

He’s sinister and powerful and entirely too seductive. I’ve learned my lesson with trusting manipulative kings, so why does my chest constrict every time he’s near? I need to tread carefully, or I’m at risk of losing much more than just my freedom.

Regret and revenge war inside of me, and I need to figure out a plan fast before I get tangled up in the schemes of kings and queens.

Because I won’t be caught in a cage again. No, this time, It’ll be me setting the trap... I just hope my heart comes out of this unscathed.

Holy shit!!! That ending! I devoured this book, if it wasn’t that I got sleepy at 3am, I would’ve finished it in one sitting.

I’m continuing to love the story, the twists, the character development, the schemes, and most of all seeing Auren rip the blindfold off. I do have to say that she really gets on my last nerve when she continuously puts herself in situations where the other saddles talk down to her and mock her. I still don’t see why she has to keep doing that to herself. And the whole thing with Mist towards the end of the book??? Fuck! So much could’ve been avoided but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

I have a thing for the male lead not letting himself be pushed away and Rip totally fits that roll. He’s so sure of himself and of what he wants that he doesn’t let any of Auren’s bs affect him. Is he getting tired of it? Well duh! Since they met, Rip has been on a mission to get Auren to admit and embrace what she really is and that totally continues here. Except that now, Auren isn’t the same meek girl that Midas has control over.

Another thing that I loved was the whole Rip, King Ravinger, Slade, and the fake Rip. All of that was a mind fuck at the time and when the truth comes out, I was NOT ready for that!

My all time favorite part of the book? Slade’s POV chapter when IT all goes down. It’s a refreshing take on what most authors do of always showing us the female’s POV in a very tense situation. Seeing it from Slade’s POV and all those DIRTY DIRTY thoughts?! If i didn’t know that there’s another book coming, i would’ve thought the series was wrapping up after this point but of course, I knew better and so I was ready for the other shoe to drop. And boy, did it ever!

Go read this book!!!

About Raven Kennedy

Raven Kennedy is a tea and dark chocolate kind of girl and can often be found binge-watching The Office or The Great British Baking Show.

She enjoys writing all kinds of books, because each one brings a different experience. Whatever the genre, she hopes she creates characters you can root for.

When she’s not reading or writing, she’s with her family, probably messing up a recipe or going on a hike that she thinks she can do, but in reality she can’t because she remembers that all she does is sit at a computer all day and write her heart out.
