To Charm a Dark Prince by Kathryn Ann Kingsley
I loved the sound of this one as not only did the blurb catch my interest but sometimes you just need a book with drama and fire. To Charm a Dark Prince certainly delivered that!
To save a kingdom, she must charm a monster.
Transported to the magical realm of Avalon, Gwen finds herself in the hands of its dark and beautiful ruler—Mordred, the Prince in Iron.
The prince holds total power in Avalon, trapping his rivals in an enchanted crystal prison. But he shows a strange gentleness to Gwen.
Seeing no other way to escape, Gwen strikes a deal with Mordred’s enemy. If she can break the crystal, she will be free to go home.
Gwen joins Mordred’s court with a plan to steal his heart and destroy his prize.
Desire sparks between them at once. But Mordred is a dangerous host. As they draw closer, his passion and anger burn brighter.
Gwen would be foolish to trust him.
And even more foolish to betray his trust…
WHAT I THOUGHT
I loved Gwen as a character. A great mix of vulnerability and modern woman sass, she ends up in a world which is more suited to a renaissance fair. Soon used as a pawn in everyone’s game, she needs to figure out not only what is the right thing to do, but also how to survive in dark new world which is ruled by an even darker Prince. Gwen soon finds out though that things in this new world are not quite as clean cut as good vs evil.
To Charm a Dark Prince in a brilliant example of fantasy romance and if you enjoy this genre, then you will quickly get invested in Gwen and Mordred’s story. I won’t give any spoilers but judging by how the first book ends, it’s one that is set to have more than one twist in it!
Thankfully the next book in the series is due in November 2023 so I don’t have too long to wait until the next installment.
To Charm a Dark Prince was released yesterday on Friday 18th August and is available to buy on Amazon now.
