She's been the victim and the survivor…
Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.
The enemy and the warrior…
Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.
A lover and heartmate…
But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.
And now she will become Queen…
Is there a 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 rating? Because this book, this whole series really, deserves it! I’ve said it before and I will say it again, JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT is a freaking GENIUS!
Cas, Poppy, and Kieran are back! I’m really loving that the publication of the books is so close together because I would die if I had to wait a year or more to know what happens next.
It’s like we hit pause at the end of book 2, and hit play at the start of book 3. The story gets better with each new book and STEAMIER! Poppy is now fully immersed in this new world that has become her new reality and she is learning a lot about things that she thought were just stories. And she’s embracing what her true powers are. Of course, Cas has a huge part on how Poppy deals with stuff.
We got some answers to questions that we’ve had since book 1 but JLA left us with 1,000 more! So so much goes on. So many deceptions. So many power struggles. So many emotional (both good and sad) moments. So much sexy times. Who knew the Maiden was such a pervy perv?! 🤣
At the end when the biggest bomb was dropped, I absolutely LOVED how Poppy reacted. She completely embraced who she has become and is going to kick ass.
Eloana was such a big disappointment. That’s all I will say.
Who knows when we’re getting book 4 but we ARE getting ASITE in October which should hold us up….maybe…
