Early Review: Lord of Rage by Jill Monroe


Once upon a time...the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. 

To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs...and time is running out....

Princess Breena had been dreaming of her warrior lover when she was ripped from her Elden castle and thrown into a strange, dangerous realm. Lost and alone, she prayed for survival and vengeance for her stolen kingdom. She found both in a woodland a dark bear of a man.

The golden-haired beauty had eaten his food and slept in his bed when Osborn found her. Though he wanted to awaken his virgin princess to carnal pleasures, Breena wanted more—including his warrior skills. Skills the once-legendary mercenary had long buried. Now Osborn had a choice—risk his life or deny his princess her fairy-tale ending.

My review:

Lord of Rage (Royal House of Shadows, #2)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In a world parallel to ours, there is the country of Elden where witches, werewolves, vampires, and even humans live. The Blood Sorcerer came and killed the King and Queen, and in their dying breaths, the King and Queen sent their four children into the rest of the world with the urge to seek revenge (from the King) and to survive (from the Queen). Brenna, the only girl out of the four children, watched the King and queen die. Then she was transported to the land of Ursa. There she meets Osborn, a berserker with a broken heart and a rage like no other, and his two brothers. Problem after problem occur, and you can't help but think that they might not make it.

I personally loved this story the most. It was like a retelling of Goldilocks and the three bears (Ursa.... Love the play of words for this!). Brenna is an innocent princess, while Osborn is a worldly warrior. The fights and the romancing was beautiful in this story. I love how Brenna grows as a character, leaving behind the innocent princess and becoming a warrior prepared to fight for her land and her people. Also, Osborn becomes less of a bear (love playing with words!) and becomes a man worthy of a princess.

Highly recommend this book!

Will warn all readers, very adult scenes, and (though very enjoyable to read), this book might not be appropriate for all readers!
