The King, Tiffany Reisz

 

The King, Tiffany Reisz
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

Kingsley – the King. He’s a strong character full of sex, sin and sensuality, spiced up with his ability to laugh when the situations gets bad. He sees humour in the strangest of places. Soren is the only person to really understand him, and King’s loyal and in love with him to the death.
I’d looked forward to this book but…it didn’t have that “can’t put down” feeling every other has had for me. Tiffany’s writing style is as ever easy and seductive, and pulls the reader in but the story..maybe its because I know by now what’s happening, I know how it ends, and this is just a strand in the whole weave showing how Kingsley becomes so entrenched in the group. I don’t know – but whatever it was it was a fun read, I love Kingsley and I really enjoyed seeing how he was raised to the level of King. How he grew from that schoolboy who idolised Soren into a person in his own right. I loved the snippets of the two when they were at school, and I also enjoyed seeing how his trademark style of dress came about. What didn’t work so well I guess was the big part of the book which was about the creation of the eighth circle. Or mortem to the point, the getting hold of the building. To be honest I’d have liked it more if the gaining it was briefer, and we got a bit about just how the conversion took place, how they decided what was needed and how it came about. I liked how Kingsley started getting the staff, that worked well for me, and maybe as that was new info. The past that I liked best was where we saw them in scenes we hadn’t seen before, or which had been only briefly alluded to – when Soren took King with him and they went to warn his fathers new wife for example. That was interesting, gave us more insights into both of them and what drove them, and of course it was Hot!! Its a good book of course, I don’t think Tiffany can do less with this series, its just for me it didn’t make that magic five, and I’m not sure its one I’d re read. Its fits with the rest but whereas I would (and have) re read some of the others, this one is probably a one off. It rounds off some scenes but there’s nothing that it contains that we don’t already know in part, and its not one that has to be read to understand the whole series. Still, I am SO looking forward to reading more about Soren! and still love the King of course…
Stars: Four, a good book but not up to the others for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
