This book was everything. I loved every single word of it. It was a rush page after page and I could not put it down. Jennifer crafted a book that you can feel the heart in chapter after chapter.
If you have read the first two novels in this series then you are already hooked and I don't need to convince you.
This is a beautifully crafted novel that brings the characters to the brink situation after situation.
I loved how many questions were answered, but I am also a little rage filled over some of the questions that I was left with at the end of this.
There was also one part of this that completely sealed this book for me. There is a certain scene *Spoiler free* that Casteel and Poppy are in and the emotions that are shown are just, everything. It was one of those that changes the face of a character and you are a reader just are HERE FOR IT.
I know none of that makes sense. But Spoiler free. So yeah.
Go read this. And suffer with me till the next book arrives.
Bow Before Your Queen Or Bleed Before Her…
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book three in her Blood and Ash series.
She’s been the victim and the survivor…
Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.
The enemy and the warrior…
Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.
A lover and heartmate…
But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.
And now she will become Queen…
