Constant mind explosions. All. Over. The. Place. 🤯 Wow, wow, and more wow!!!

The past and present all wove together to tell a tale that was complete perfection. Although, I feel like I need to go back and re-read each book in the Kingmaker series because I feel like I missed clues or easter eggs that all led up to this brilliant conclusion. Again, total mind blown moments throughout the entire book.

I was captivated and I’ve been dying to know who the spy was leading up to this book, but like Sophie…I won’t let the cat out of the bag either.

We return to Kingmakers with new freshman, the classes (I still love the entire concept behind mafia courses) and the potential of Leo Gallo being the four time captain-champion of the school’s games. Everything is familiar and yet as mysteries slowly unraveled (which brought me immense glee) and all of the truth bombs began to explode the story puzzle began to take shape. The ending was coming, but it was also magnificent.

Probably one of the best things I have loved about this series is how Sophie wove all secondary characters throughout each book to the point that each person was perfectly placed and became just as important to the storyline as the main characters.  Friendship and loyalty, something you wouldn’t expect perhaps from mafia students, but it runs deep through these books and the love they have for each other is a bond that became unbreakable.

While I’m sad to see this series come to an end, it truly had the perfect ending and everything was tied up.


I’ve waited three long years for this…
Hiding. Lying. Spying.
Waiting like a spider for her to wander into my web…
Now she’s here, and I have to get even closer to her. I’ll help her. Befriend her. Seduce her, even.
The only thing I can’t do is fall in love with her.
Her father took everything from me: my money, my family, my life.
He has to pay for what he’s done. And she’s the only thing that can hurt him…
Mafia families from around the world send their children to Kingmakers Academy to learn the skills of criminal enterprise.

Under the rules of Sanctuary, students are forbidden to fight or kill. But rivalries are high, tensions inflamed, and forbidden love arises in the most unlikely places…
