Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
Just a little bit of chaos in this shot as my daughter runs nearly out of frame with her raincoat fluttering on her back & I hold a tablet like it’s a stinky bit of laundry 😆. Only another day around here 🤪.
📖 Q: if you had to get rid of one of these three FOREVER—historical romance, contemporary romance, or fantasy romance / fantasy with romantic elements—which would it be?
I was really excited to get my hands on Hannah Whitten’s For the Throne, a daring follow-up book to For the Wolf that focuses on Red’s sister, Neve.
Neve, a former queen & now kinda villain who took herself to the Shadowlands (ie The Bad Place) & now finds herself in the company of a once-king & god named Solmir who is even more villainous.
But don’t worry: Solmir has a plan to take out the group of evil kings also inhabiting the Shadowlands & he must have Neve for the plan to work. If she can trust him that is.
If this sounds appealing to you:
🖤 Complicated characters (these two leads have made some mistakes! but I love it)
🖤 Steam & a big sense of the forbidden
🖤 Fantastic chemistry—he basically snarls a romantic declaration & my heart went pitter patter
🖤 Books that say over & over again how important sisters are
🖤 Solid worldbuilding with high stakes
🖤 Chunky books
You might really like this duology! Each book focuses on a different sister though we see the same characters populating each one.
For the Throne is just as cinematic at book 1 but on the romance front I wanted more (mostly because book 1 set such a precedent).
But this is another great fantasy & you can count me as a fan of Hannah Whitten’s work.
4.5 ⭐️. Out 06/07.
Give me that HEA, please.
