I honestly can't imagine anyone not loving this book, but I'm sure there is at least one person in the world who is probably a "meanie" (as Avalon would say). They won't like that bad/good are just words and that it is always the actions of a person who determines who they really are.
Midas is the kingpin of the underworld that you can't help but fall in love with. Especially with how viciously he protects those that are his although Gwen thinks he is just a big marshmallow and just can't understand how he survived without her looking out for him. I just loved the interplay between them...it is pure "gold".
Gwen is Queen Gwenivere of Camelot and King Arthur is an idiot, while Princess Avalon is their 5 year old daughter who in no way claims Arthur as her Daddy. She is precocious and utterly precious and added so much to this book.
I read this using KU but I immediately bought it for my book collection because it was such a joy to read. It will definitely be a book I read again and again because of the light it brought to my day. The smiles, laughs, and even the sentimental tears I shed were all perfect in my book. While this book had a lightheartedness to it there is still a lot of violence and sad things that happen all through out the book to weave a tapestry that turned out beautifully.
My only complaint with this book was that it ended and I was left wanting more. I wasn't ready to leave the new Camelot and hope we get Trystens book soon. Don't misunderstand my complaint as anything more than being hungry for more, because the book ends beautifully with a HEA and an epilogue. So, don't worry the ending was rushed or unsatisfactory in anyway because honestly just like the rest of the book it ended perfectly and left me happily wanting more.
Okay, I'm done gushing and anyone who reads my reviews will know how out of character my gushing is. ;)
The story contains all sorts of fun twists and quirkiness. The kingdom is ostensibly divided between those who are born Good and those who are born Bad. The Good are supposed to be good and the Bad are supposed to be bad, but much of the story revolves around demonstrating how those labels are artificial constructs. Gwen is a Good queen who doesn't to shoot those who threaten her daughter. Midas is a Bad criminal kingpin who would do anything to make Gwen and Avalon happy. The chemistry between the two is instant and hilarious as they negotiate their way to deposing the evil Good scarecrow and reclaiming Gwen's throne. There is plenty of action, betrayal, bloodshed, True Love, family, and some serious contract negotiations. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to mix things up every now and then, just to see what will happen.
...and basically I TOTALLY agreed with her on this one. :) The world-building is wacky, everything about this story is wildly over-the-top, and yes, the manuscript could have done with a copyedit - but the whole book is utterly hilarious, adorable and fantastic and I loved every minute of it. I laughed out loud MANY times as I was reading, and I had a real chest-melting moment at the end as I took in the startlingly sweet message about created families.
(Also, if you like Ilona Andrews's books, you're almost certain to enjoy this one, because the writing style and sense of humor reminded me a lot of Andrews's work!)
A total comfort-read! And PS: this is Book 3 in the series, but not only does it stand alone perfectly well, I also think it's actually better to start here than with Book 1. I have now bought Book 1 (Wicked Ugly Bad) and am enjoying it, but I think I'm enjoying it a lot more *because* I read Kingpin first and got to thereby pick up on all sorts of fun clues in the first chapter of WUB that might have just baffled me as a first-time visitor to that world.
