Tiffany Reisz never disappoints. 'The King' is a brilliant new instalment in the 'Original Sinners: White Years' series. Kingsley is a charming, clever, sexy, manipulative, creative and cunning man- but also a truly loyal friend. Here we discover how Kingsley becomes the 'King' in the title. Reisz draws her characters with such skill and depth, that you really feel as if you know them , and that you might be welcome at his house or the 'Eighth Circle'. I am truly enjoying the 'White Years' books, which give even more background and depth to the characters that Reisz first introduced in the Red Series. Those who criticize this book for not including enough 'Nora' are inaccurate- Kingsley hasn't yet met Nora, and here we get the opportunity to glean little hints about the 'central' Nora and also about Soren, and what is yet to come- to which we luckily are already privy. Some books of erotica and particularly BDSM are written quickly, haphazardly and with much more attention to the sex than the characters (and sometimes not even good sex). What all of Reisz's 'Original Sinners' books have in common, and in contrast to the 'also rans', is her writing skill. Not only are the sex and BDSM scenes pleasurably descriptive ;) but the characters are real and memorable. Enjoy the sex- enjoy it a lot- and come back for the characters, whose lives and stories you become completely bound up in.
Sensational as usual. I loved the look into Kingsley's life. His love of Sam and his love of Soren. This whole series has been a wonderful journey so far and I cant wait for it to continue. I have laughed, cried and fanned myself when it got a little hot. I would highly recommend anything written by Tiffany Reisz.
As always a great exciting well written hot as hell book that I just couldn't put down. Think I have to read all of the books again as it's been a while and the king has woken the curious side of me again. I've fallen for Kingsley, hottest man Eva !!!!
Another wonderful and intriguing backstory to the 'Red Years'. Kingsley is a fascinating character and I enjoy Sam also. I loved the humour in this story, the banter between Kingsley and Sam is fantastic.
It will be an anxious wait for the next two instalments, not sure why we are being punished for the wait. 😉
