Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown- Henry IV, Part II.
Cruel Crown is the second book in the Sekten series by C Lymari and happens to pick up where Savage kingdom ended. I finished this book about a week ago and have had the hardest time writing a review. My thoughts and comments are all jumbled in my head. I also do not want to tell you the plotline of CC.
Cruel Crown was everything I expected it to be and more. As with Savage Kingdom, Cruel Crown, was full of multiple emotions. Such as haunting, stunning, heated, passionate, fiery, feisty, and of course, the incredible push and pull between Gideon and Daphne.
Gideon was put into a precarious situation, thanks to Daphne, and now is determined to exact his revenge. However, what happens when he catches up with his precious Petal? What happens when they realize, they’ve ‘caught feelings’?
Claudia has written another winner with Cruel Crown. The plot line, story line, and flow were melded so well, they just wrapped you up in all three in sheer perfection. The emotions are all forthright with an undercurrent of “the only one to truly have my back is me”, but, Gideon and Daphne are beginning to realize that they don’t need to be alone and may be able to count on each other.
There is an organization that does not have their back and if you think they do, then be prepared for a whole host of issues, such as a knife in the back, kidnapped and beaten. The organization is the Sekt. They are still greedy and mysterious and very singular. They are all about making the Sekt/higher up members more powerful.
Claudia Lymari certainly knows how to write a fabulous, incredible, dark, and twisted book/series. I love all her books, but I truly feel she has found her niche in writing in the dark romance, taboo setting!!
