Publication date: 3rd August 2019
Genres: Paranormal, Supernatural, Suspense
Allene Whelan is trapped in the True Kingdom, held captive by their cruel leader Macsen. It’s her job as the newest Raven Knight to assassinate him by any means necessary. As a sylph whose greatest weapon is her body, that means seducing him…all the way to the grave.
But the closer Allene gets to Macsen, the more she realizes he’s being played by a crueler enemy: Morgause, the manipulative sidhe he regards as mother. And Macsen doesn’t seem interested in hurting Allene. The closer they grow, the less she wants to kill him.
Trapped by passion in a shadowy labyrinth of lies, Allene forces Macsen to make a choice. Does the Priest of Skulls want to rule through death, or through love?
I said in my review for the first book that I was able to follow all the world domination plans. Well, I can feel my confidence in my ability to continue to do so waning. This is an increasingly complex story line, albeit strongly character driven. That, coupled with the shortness of this story, meant that there was a lot going on.
Don’t get me wrong, its all good. Very good in fact.
Really looking forward to seeing how this plays out after that somewhat explosive cliffy.

Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy and paranormal novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It’s a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.
If you would like to know the instant my next book is available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a wicked cool secret handshake, but you’ll have to sign up to learn it. 😉 Check it out — Army of Evil
