Publisher's Summary

Avalon St. Andrews has endured Hell and war in an attempt to secure freedom and immortality for his people. Raised and conditioned to be both warrior and leader, he now sits on a throne with his sister Eden, governing the Kingdom in peace. While his people enjoy the benefits of his struggle and loss, he is restless, bored and alone.

Avalon is summoned to fight in order to save his people once more as the Kingdom is threatened by a brand new evil. In addition to reigning in a kingship he doesn't want, he is fighting against the very people he has fought so hard to protect. They are determined to throw away their newfound freedom and their newfound leaders.

In this war and in this kingship he feels alone. And for the first time he feels hollow. That is until Amelia Cartier shows up, invading his every thought and shaking up his carefully controlled world.

Now he faces yet another battle - making Amelia his queen.

Royalty at its most humane

After the bad King has been killed and the twins take over the throne, one is married to the ex-king's son, the other discovers he really can fall in love. But happily ever after lasts no time at all, as the bad guys are hard at work. Exciting, fun, a continuation of the series that holds up. Literally...

Always refreshing getting the other characters point of view

I’ve listened to the prior books from Edens’s point of view, but I am REALLY enjoying Avalon’s perspective!It’s definitely making me appreciate his character more and it’s a little more lighthearted and a touch of comedic relief here and there (great to balance out the other parts darker than before) the sarcasm and cockiness, more raw and the narrator is on point with everything! I found myself making facial expressions and laughing aloud truly being drawn into the story emotionally as well. Looking forward to the next one!

Very different

I honestly found this book pointless. The series could’ve stopped after the 4th book and it would’ve felt complete. This book is based around Avalons love life, THATS IT. It has nothing to do with Eden and Kiran and the story line was so slow to start, nothing happened until the last few chapters. This book should have been an individual one, apart of the Star-Crossed Series. That series to me was revolves around Eden and Kiran, their relationship & the kingdom. I was very disappointed with this book.
