A curse he cannot break without her…
Before I became evil, I was king of a great people. Now I am cursed to walk the earth until I pay for my misdeeds. After three thousand years, I have much to answer for.
Then along comes Jeni, further complicating matters. She claims to love me, though I could never reciprocate. Her loathsome people placed me in this predicament, and frankly, I gave my heart to another woman long ago.
But I am about to discover that meeting Jeni is no coincidence.
Our true connection will shock even me.
A power she didn’t know she had…
I am what they call a Seer, an ancient people with unusual gifts, and I’m the last of my kind. Surprise! Because up until recently, I thought I was a regular person.
But meeting King changed everything. He opened my eyes to the world around me, filled with more darkness than I could’ve imagined. And King? He’s the darkest of them all.
That’s why I can’t wrap my head around my feelings. With every moment we spend together, I’m falling for a man who can never love me back. His heart belongs to his dead wife.
That’s when I meet Ansin. The only man on earth who could rival King for darkness and ruthless ambition. Like me, Ansin is the last of his bloodline, which is why he demands I marry him and give him children.
Do I get to choose, or has fate already chosen for me?
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Lord King by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is a paranormal novel. It’s the seventh book from The King series.
This can’t be read as a standalone and I would highly recommend you to read at least the previous book before this one. It will make much more sense trust me.
In the previous book, Jeni Arnold had met King, fell in love with him, found out that she was a Seer and that his soul was bound to her. King was still in love with his dead wife and wanted to join her in the afterlife. The Seers had cursed him and in order to join his family, he had to redeem himself with Jeni’s help. The Seers had asked him to end Ten Club, he had killed seven of them and it was time for the last three powerful to go. Jeni loved him so much she couldn’t bear to live without him but his rejection hurt her a lot. Then came Ansin, a dangerous man who wanted her to have his children. Both wanted to use her but one of them was willing to treat her well. Who would she eventually choose?
This book is filled with twists, intensity, and hurt. It’s the first book I read from this series and I was a little confused even though the author shares many pieces of information about the past. The story is told by the three main characters. Each one of them has a purpose, King is focused on his hunt for the last three members, Jeni tries to figure out what the Seers want and Ansin wants to have her as his baby mama.
It’s so different from the other paranormal novels I have read before. It has so much suspense, secrets, and a strange love triangle. The characters have a unique dynamic. My favorite was Jeni, she was so nice and thoughtful. Ansin was my second favorite, I liked his dark and dangerous side. I didn’t like King at all, he was a major jerk.
I liked every part of this story but the cliffhanger at the end was unbelievable. I will rate it with 4 stars.
