REVIEW TOUR - The King's Fate by Rissa Blakeley

The King's Fate (Corvidae Guard, Book 1) by Rissa Blakeley

Paranormal Romance

Release Date: June 7, 2016

In a world where Fae and Vampire will forever be at odds, a Vampire wins the crown, ruling the Fae Realm for the first time in history.

An Incubus, Leolin Kyffin, and his barren Succubus, Louise Bach, plot to end King Zachariah Orsova’s life, allowing them to rule the Fae Realm.

Through Louise’s encouragement, Leolin walks into a female Vampire’s dream and mates with her, breaking Zachariah’s law. His hope is to create what he thinks will be the most powerful half-breed known to the Realm.

When Zachariah kills the Succubus, Leolin vows revenge, sacrificing his half-breed son, Monty Saxon, and using him as a pawn to tear out the King’s heart, hoping to make him feel the pain of death while living.

When Leolin walks into Zachariah’s dreams, he fills his mind with unimaginable thoughts and desires. Doing the same to Monty, he secures his devious plot, patiently waiting for the precise moment Zachariah and Monty will be brought together as one.

The choices Leolin makes all add up to delivering a fate worse than death to his half-breed son and the King of the Fae Realm. Will Leolin avenge the murder of Louise? Will Zachariah and Monty survive, or will they be left suffering in the end?

Where to buy

4 out of 5 (very good)

This is a fast-paced and emotional read, in the realm of Angels, Reapers, Vampire, Fae, Incubus and Succubi. A fae pair, incubus and succubi, want the Fae Throne to return to the fae, in particular themselves. They plot the downfall of the Vampire king (who apparently won it fair and square in battle). Whilst Leo is successful in his mission, Louise is not and she is killed. Filled with horror at the loss of his loved one, Leo vows revenge. 

Due to the long life span of these races, the book takes places over a long time. I won't discuss any more of the synopsis or plot. I would definitely rate this book as Adult/Erotic as the part that takes place during the nineteenth century is full of sex - whether it be M/M, M/F or ménage. The second part of the book doesn't contain as much, but rather it is insinuated instead.

Ending on a cliffhanger, The King's Fate will definitely leave you wanting to know more. Definitely recommended.

* I received this book from Books 'n' Pearls in return for a fair and honest review. *
