Publishing Date: Feb. 25th, 2020
Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power:
1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.
No one knows the extent of the freshly crowned Shadow King’s power. Some say he can command the shadows that swirl around him to do his bidding. Others say they speak to him, whispering the thoughts of his enemies. Regardless, Alessandra knows what she deserves, and she’s going to do everything within her power to get it.
But Alessandra’s not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen—all while struggling not to lose her heart. After all, who better for a Shadow King than a cunning, villainous queen?
Quick Star Rating: 4.5/5 stars
When I heard Tricia talk about this book on tour and how it was her Slytherin romance I was so excited to get it! This book totally delivered that in case anyone was wondering!
I loved Alessandra, she is not our typical heroine and I was living for it. Her ambition, sass and willingness to show that her sexuality doesn’t hold her back is such serious goals. The way she gets herself out of any corner shes pushed into was so much fun to watch, the girl is sneaky yall I loved it!
Oh my Kallias aka Shadow King. His powers and backstory are quite tragic, but it was perfection. He was such a great character to see change and his interactions with Alessandra were so fun!
I love how Tricia paces her standalones so well. I was never bored in this book, I was completely hooked within chapters and the ending was so well. I mean I could of used a few more scenes at the end, but seriously the slow burn was done well=p You get the right amount of world building without it taking away from the story itself. Simply well done and I cannot wait to get the finished copy of this novel to add to my collection!
