Publisher Description

An instant USA Today bestseller! From fan-favorite Scarlett St. Clair, the bestselling author of the Hades & Persephone series, comes a new fantasy filled with danger, darkness, and insatiable romance.

Their union is his revenge.

Isolde de Lara considers her wedding day to be her death day. To end a years-long war, she is to marry vampire king Adrian Aleksandr Vasiliev, and kill him.

But her assassination attempt is thwarted, and Adrian threatens that if Isolde tries to kill him again, he will raise her as the undead. Faced with the possibility of becoming the thing she hates most, Isolde seeks other ways to defy him and survive the brutal vampire court.

Except it isn't the court she fears most—it's Adrian. Despite their undeniable chemistry, she wonders why the king—fierce, savage, merciless—chose her as consort.

The answer will shatter her world.

Thinking Face“This was a really quick read for me, and for that it got bumped another star. It did keep me engaged enough for me to finish, however I should’ve learned my lesson from ATOD. I’m not a huge fan of St. Clair’s plot development. It always just kind of becomes lackluster. This also just felt too similar to From Blood and Ash for me. It was okay. If you’re looking for a quick, relatively interesting, and semi-steamy romantasy then this is for you.”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I loved this book in many ways but definitely could be improved. I loved the plot, enjoyed the characters even though I had a love/hate relationship for Isolde. I appreciate a strong warrior like female lead but her stubbornness irritated me a lot. I felt like the MMC could’ve had more layers to his character and same goes for other characters. Spice level is great! And I felt had a good mix between plot and spice. Some authors struggle with this. The world building could have been better though”
