Title: The Crown of Gilded Bones
Series: Blood and Ash #3
Author: Jennifer L Armentrout
She’s been the victim and the survivor…
Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.
The enemy and the warrior…
Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.
A lover and heartmate…
But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.
And now she will become Queen…
‘My first. My guard. My friend. My betrayer. My partner. My husband. My heartmate. My everything.’
Well that started off nicely! There was loads of action in the first quarter, maybe too much as my head was spinning! And then it calmed and gave me the great FBAA and KoFaF feels!
The dynamic between Kieran and Poppy makes my heart soar. Friends, protector and Leissa. I’m so glad the banter regarding questions is still here, that and the Poppy and Casteel moments made my life!
‘I looked at Kieran. You’re going to be happy to hear this. I have a question.
I am so thrilled.’
‘I have so many questions, I whispered. Not a single person is surprised to hear that, Kieran remarked.’
And talking of Poppy and Casteels moments look at this! My heart was so huge I thought it would burst!
‘If you think that what I did was a shock, then you need to understand that I will do anything and everything for my wife. No risk is too great, nor is anything too sacred. Because she is my everything. There is nothing greater than her, and I do mean nothing.’
Whilst we are here, being glad, I’m immensely glad for Willa! I love her and her dirty diary!
I’m also glad for the last 20% of this book which had me on the edge of my seat.
More, I want more!
