King of Battle and Blood (Adrian X Isolde, 1)
Vampires are back! Dark and decadent, this story seduces from the very first page.
Isolde, Princess of Lara, finds herself struggling with the confines of her role. As she strives to forge her own path and secure power, a chance encounter on the eve of war presents a marriage of opportunity. Sacrificing her future, she trades her freedom to save her kingdom, or so she believes. But all is not as it seems and we are reminded that history is often distorted through the perspective of those telling it.
Married to the enemy she once swore to destroy, Isolde is torn between the temptation of an all-consuming love of a monster and loyalty to her father and their people. This tension between personal desires and the idea of sacrifice for the greater good creates wonderful angst as the story progresses.
The rich characters and vivid imagery create a world that is equally treacherous and alluring, a place you simply don’t want to leave. The small teasers of a centuries-old subplot add extra intrigue and keep you on your toes while searching for answers. It certainly seems that the Warrior Queen has met her match with the Blood King.
