**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.**
– My Thoughts –
The King picks up after the events of The Prince and is even more intense, sexier than the latter. Brighton is still adamant on taking revenge and Caden, who is the King now, is determined to protect her at all costs.
I loved watching Brighton grow from the original trilogy to this novella and she -kind of- reminded me of Katy from the lux series with her quite badassery. Brighton and Caden’s chemistry is somehow too hot to handle in this novella and you’ll see why when you read it. Though, I must say that this novella was darker than the first and I was so frustrated with Caden in the beginning; That man seriously needs to share his thoughts instead of bottling them up.
I seriously thought the ending would be an H-E-A but it ended in a cliffhanger again! and now, I have to wait another year for The Queen..
Overall, I would recommend this book if you loved the Wicked trilogy because Brighton(and Caden)’s story is a wonderful addition to the world that I’ll never get tired of reading.
