The Warlock King (The Kings #3)The Warlock King by Heather Killough-Walden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Warlock King is book three of The Kings series, a spin-off of the Big Bad Wolf Series.

Jason Alberich, the Warlock King, is a familiar character for readers of the Big Bad Wolf and The Kings series. Earlier in the series Jason was a character that was easy to dislike. He brought a really horrible werewolf back to life and tried to take Danny away from Lucas among other despicable things. The Jason we have encountered in the more recent books has changed to someone readers can understand and even like, especially when he is with the Cage twins. Jason saw his queen in The Phantom King. Now he gets to claim her.

Chloe Septeran is not just any Akyri. She is one of the original twenty-eight who was born of the cosmos. The interesting thing about Akyri’s is that they get their nourishment by ‘feeding’ off the power of a warlock. It makes perfect sense that one of the twenty-eight would be destined to be the Warlock Queen.

As in the previous two books of the series, the process of the King claiming his Queen is rife with danger and resistance to the inevitable. The unknown danger to the Queens is front and center in this book. While we are still not sure why the Kings and Queens are being targeted we do have a clearer picture of who is behind it. It is even more imperative for the other Kings to find and claim their Queens before it’s too late.

One word of caution, it would be in your best interest to read the previous installations of both series to understand the history of the characters and how the story got to this point, if you haven’t already. All of the books of both series are heavily entwined. Not to worry, as with other H K-W books, they are great series!!! I can’t wait for the stories of the rest of the Kings since they are all creatures that are not prevalent in other paranormal romance stories I have read. Up next looks to be the Goblin King.
