Isolde is a victim of patriarchal womanhood and it frustrates me that plots like this are still being written—we’re well past the days of stories like this. Anyhow, two things I wanted to point out though it's neither on my good nor bad side is — i) the representation in this book. But hey, at least I could read it in a satirical way, and that was the only thing giving me the strength to finish. Like "I met him beneath jasmine and kissed him under stars, and we made love in the dark, and that love ended in fire and damned the world" just made me speechless because I think this might be the best sentence in the whole book for me. Some vampires do not like the fact that Adrian brought back a human queen and they are trying to get rid of her, but they are not very subtle, and their identities were never a secret.

This also means that for a good chunk of the story the main relationship is quite one sided, with Isolde being a bit of a huge hypocrite, but trust the process and believe me when I tell you that something that had the potential of turning into one of those very romanticized but lowkey toxic relationships, actually resolves itself into a badass power couple with both partners being equal and properly validated. There were also a few twists and even a betrayal, but sadly, I saw most of them coming because of the hints that were dropped here and there.

But her assassination attempt is thwarted and Adrian threatens that if Isolde tries kill him again, he will raise her as the undead. Also, the fact that many important and significant conversations between Isolde and Adrian happened while they were having sex just feels weird.

They obviously have this very physical and intense connection that makes it impossible for them not to rip their clothes off when they are together for more than a few minutes, yet they can take the time to chat while having sex?

Incidentally, she's also that person who likes to speak when needn't ask to or do so for the sake of hurting the other party. I’ve been seeing it on Bookstagram non-stop lately and the premise sounded so interesting to me that I decided to pick it up. I have a sexual relationship with the captain of the guard but he’s boring and not good in the sack and I’m not satisfied. Adrian and his vampires did not tell everything to Isolde because she made it no secret that she still considered them to be her enemies and didn’t trust them, so of course, they wouldn’t trust her with their secrets and battle plans, yet Isolde was hurt every single time she learned that they didn’t share something with her. Hello again dear reader or listener, today I thought I’d share with you some of my thoughts on my latest fantasy romance read.

The latter is one of my absolute favorite romantasy books because it was brilliantly able to (in my opinion) balance the romance with a very engaging and intriguing plot. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within thirty (30) days of the day we confirm via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund for defective goods. You don’t get to say terrible things to someone and push them away, and then whine when they don’t pay you the attention you secretly want from them? In fact heres’ your content warning: this book is definitely rated 18 and possibly the smuttiest book I’ve read to date so to quote booktok/booksta/book-what-have-you, this novel is a 7 chilies out of 5 level of spicy. And it does not help that Isolde is feeling horny all the freaking time and everything was just so rushed and insta-lust.

This was frustrating because who doesn’t love that moment in a story when all the pieces come together and things finally make sense.

Forced to join him and his court, she struggles to defy him and survive, denying her growing feelings for him and uncovering devastating secrets that will change life as she knows it. There is stubbornness, there is doubt, and betrayal, but also some lovely comic relief and camaraderie, as well as several soft moments of feels. But her assassination attempt is thwarted, and Adrian threatens that if Isolde tries to kill him again, he will raise her as the undead.
