They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Excerpt:

When I was twenty-two, I met a prince. He seemed to be the exact opposite of everything I was—loud where I was quiet, smiling where I frowned, careless where I was careful, careful, careful. Embry joined the Army because Vivienne Moore wanted her son to craft the perfect politician’s resume. I joined because it seemed like the place to continue my never-ending quest for honor; because becoming an officer in the Army had a certain cachet in my neighborhood; because I wanted to somehow cosmically return the favor for my college scholarship; because the structure and rigid hierarchy of military life appealed to me.

Most importantly, I joined because I knew Carpathia was the most dangerous place in the world at the time, and I felt needed there in a way I can’t describe. It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it. I knew that I was supposed to be there in the same way I knew that God was real or that I was bisexual. It was a fact, even if it couldn’t be seen.

And after all that, then I see this lieutenant refuse to break up a fight? When we were there on the brink of war and responsible for safekeeping innocents nearby? No. I wasn’t an angry person, but I was a disciplined one, and the one thing I couldn’t tolerate in other people was a lack of it.

I only meant to shake some sense into him, to tell him clearly and unmistakably that he wouldn’t get away with that shit while I was around, but then he turned, and I saw his face for the first time.

And it was over.

Done.

One look at those winter-blue eyes and those delicate lips and I was finished. One glance at his lean, long body, and I was falling. Every part of me responded with heat and flush and wrenching want, like a hook had been fastened somewhere in my chest and was now giving an almighty tug, and the only thing to ease the ache would be to get closer, closer, closer.

I’d never seen a boy so beautiful. Haughty as he was, overindulged and so obviously dissolute, he was the loveliest person, boy or girl, I’d ever seen.

I still pinned him against the wall, though. And it was when I had him against the wall with my forearm on his throat and my body trapping his that he sealed his fate. As I was choking him, he looked at me with his whole world in his eyes.

My Review:

OMG!!! I am Wrecked!! My heart and my soul have been flayed wide open for the whole world to see and I’m not sure how long its going to take for me to recover from this utter masterpiece by Sierra. Its been a long wait for the final book in the New Camelot Trilogy, but my God it was worth it!!

I’ve read a lot of books by lots of authors, but this series has blown me away with its awesomeness, with no disrespect to any other author, but this trilogy has made it to the top of my all time favourite list – Simone’s unique writing talent and story telling was so powerful and compelling, it called to me on a level that so few books ever reach, with this final book I literally felt my heart being pulled from out of my chest and ripped wide open. Such an intensely powerful emotional read. I’ve had to stop reading and walk away a few times in order to get my emotions under control, which is not like me, but I just couldn’t keep reading through the tears, I knew what was coming next in the story!!

The incorporation of the Arthurian legends into this series was a stunning move and one that makes this such an exceptional series for me. There are not words enough to describe how much I loved this, truly and utterly loved this. This is a series that I will read again and again, and never get enough of. An unconventional love so perfect, so raw, so powerful that these 3 characters of Ash, Embry and Greer have ingrained themselves in my skin, and like a tattoo they will be with me for life.

You have to read this, you just must. 5 stars are just not enough for this. Its going to take something extraordinary to knock this series off my top spot. Get it now!
