Review: The Dark King
The Dark King by C.J. Abedi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Darkness descends over Roanoke Island in the sequel to the young adult bestseller, FAE.
Devilyn Reilly has crossed over to the sinister world of The Dark Fae, reigning over the realm as its King. He is to fulfill a prophecy--to unite the Light and Dark Fae once and for all, but those who love him now fear that he will never be the same again, that he can no longer be trusted, that every trace of the Light he once had is gone forever.
Caroline Ellis, the final heir of the Light Fae, must learn to survive without the protection of her one true love. She must come to embrace her own strength to evade those in the Dark court who seek her destruction—for the power is within Caroline to use Light to change Fate itself...
Caroline and Devilyn’s chemistry is undeniable. Their destiny together inevitable if only they have the will to overcome The Darkness and The Fates.
THE DARK KING, the second installment of the stunning Fae trilogy propels readers into the mystical and magical world of the Light and Dark Fae, where star-crossed love ignites a battle between two powerful kingdoms, one that can consume everything that stands in its path.(less)
The Dark King was immediately gripping and suspenseful from the beginning. I did not read the first book in this trilogy, but loved this second installment all the same. Devilyn I is a sexy character just because ... Well he is the DARK KING! But he also has light inside him and his adopted father (Odin) believes that light can prevail.
I love the magic in the book. Dark Fae ~ Light Fae and all of these magical beings that the human world is mostly ignorant of under their noses. There were so many intense scenes with Devilyn trying to protect Caroline (the unknowing Light Queen) while denying his love for her to keep from hurting her himself.
The story was full of fun as well. They were all either in high school (or pretending to be). Caoline's best friend Teddy is the best, funny, caring, & always lightening the mood among all of these Fae with the world on their shoulders.
I am glad I was provided this book free for review or I might have denied to read it. Eventhough it is romantic, it has so much more good vs evil, making your own decisions, fighting fir what you want, encouragement and some pretty interesting points of view on life in general. I very much enjoyed it.
