Darkest Heathens by Brandi Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Princess Akashka is caught in a land ruled by a tyrant, her very own father. She wants nothing to do with his ways of ruling, but has no escape. Not until she meets four prisoners who don’t seem to belong anywhere. They escape together and now are on the run from her father and from the Winter Kingdom as she finds her place among these strangers. Her role in a long held prophecy that could change all of their futures.
So by now, we know I’m a total fangirl. I fucking adore the Soul Twins series and this book is no different.
We met our Princess shortly in Precious Stones. To say I was intrigued during that reading would be an understatement. There’s torture and there’s a headless being, who wouldn’t want to know more?
These stories get more and more interesting as the author dives into each story. We see some characters from Precious Stones show up and make a cameo in this book, but it’s mostly about our Princess and finding out more about the Winter Kingdom than we did it the Soul Twins Series.
– I love this author and the characters she creates
– Cameo from our other characters
– It’s a bit darker so I’m in love
– ‘Tis a slow burn – limited sexy fun times, but the chemistry is there
– Why do books end? Impatiently awaiting the next one
The worlds are expanding, we’re getting more characters are more species introduced to us. This book is darker with torture galore. But it’s not without its humor as well. I can’t wait for more.
