I tried to run. I tried to escape. I failed.
When I was dragged from Earth to Under, my life as I knew it ended. Everyone else who was brought here with me has found their place in this world of myths and monsters. They are all now a part of the fabric of a strange universe. Everyone, except me.
The ceremony that turned everyone else into supernatural creatures left me as a human. More importantly, it left me mortal. This has never happened before. Because of that, they think I’m a threat. Edu, the King of Flames, threatened to kill me. So, I did the only logical thing—I tried to run.
But a second king has woken from his slumber. Aon, the King of Shadows, the demon amongst monsters, has risen. And he’s come for me. They call him a warlock and a madman. And now I’m a “guest” in his home, and I am afraid to learn if they’re right. I don’t know what his plans for me are…but I think I’m about to find out.
Edu still wants me dead. Aon is a dangerous mystery. I must try and survive, but this world called Under seems to have other plans.
Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
I’m so in love with King Of Shadows. It begins right where King Of Flames end. Lydia is now a “guest” of Aon’s. Nothing is as she was told. Everything is different with Aon. He isn’t as the others say. He isn’t how he projected himself in her dreams.
Lydia is still just as determined as ever to make it home. She’s so fierce and brave. She lives with a madman, with the man who makes everyone tremble in fear. Yet things are not as they appear. I’m so freaking happy that I was right about Aon. He’s mine ladies, back off! That’s all I’ll say on him.
I enjoyed King Of Shadows much more than King Of Flames. I understand so much more of the world and the characters. Each person surprised me, some was good surprises others were bad. I’m bouncing in my seat needing the next book. I can’t wait to find out what happens now!!!!
