Rise of a Queen; Kingdom Duet #2
(#2 in a duet)
by: Rina Kent
The King has found his Queen! Daddy King is a delicious, filthy tyrant, and I love him!!
Jonathan King is ruthless and will burn down the earth to get what he wants. He will also do whatever it takes to make sure Aurora stays safe. So when she disappears at the end of the first book we discover a new side to the King. (my heart’s all a flutter)
Aurora continually battles with her mental status, wondering if her mental stability is genetic and if what happened to her sister or worse her father is now happening to her. The need to escape is more desperate than ever before she does something that she can’t take back, but perhaps she’s already acted on these horrible impulses and she’d never know, is this what finally took her sister’s mind?
As the plot thickens in this second half of this duet, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time with the mystery surrounding not only Alicia’s death, but also the serial killer that is Aurora’s father. Between these two mysteries there are so many questions that I not only needed to be answered, but these questions had to potential to be connected. At the center of them both it kept circling back to Aurora and Jonathan.
As their relationship grows, could it all be a ruse to cover up a decade old mystery? Is the tyrant really a soulless murderer or is Aurora really guilty of the crimes so many accuse her of?
Rina is fantastic on keeping the plot moving and keeping you guessing until the very end. Rise of a Queen is everything fans will love of the overall Royal series and it is an excellent book!!
Nothing is fair in love.
This is my kingdom. My territory.
I own everything and control everyone, Aurora included.
She shouldn’t have barged into my world with no armour.
She shouldn’t have caught my attention with no warning.
Alas, she did.
Then she thought she could disappear.
If a battle is what it’ll take to protect and own her, I’ll shed blood.
Wars aren’t fair, and neither am I.
Rise of a Queen is the second part of a duet and is not standalone.
