The Shadow King picks up shortly after the end of The Unseelie King and we find that Violet has been making preparations to travel to the Dark in the Shadow Realm to find and rescue her sister, Dahlia, from the Entity. To be honest, I’m not sure if the true depth of Violet’s powers were shared previously, but I don’t believe they were and I was fascinated by what we learn about her and the abilities she possesses. As with all the queens who have come before her, Violet is special and it is what makes her special that makes her the perfect match for Keeran, the Shadow King. As for Keeran, the man had so many secrets it was a wonder he didn’t crumble under the weight of them, and his secrets were so closely entwined, that the slow revelation of each worked to add to his mystery, instead of feeling contrived just to heighten the tension. It is the depth of his secrets that was the only reason the Vampire King considered that Keeran might be the traitor among them, but the discovery of his queen cleared any suspicion Roman had. Like the kings before him, Keeran hopes to give Violet time to get to know him before claiming her, wanting her to know who he was and what he had done over the millennia. But when the Entity steps up the fight and wipes out an entire race of magical beings, the Shadow King ends up claiming his queen sooner than he planned, unknowingly falling right into the Entity’s trap. When the Entity brings the fight to the Shadow King’s realm, it is only the knowledge that we have 13 kings who must find their queens that kept me from worrying the Shadow King would lose the fight. But the murder of a king in this novel did have me worrying about the fate of the newly added Nightmare King.
Once again Killough-Walden has delivered another action-packed installment in The Kings series. Although we don’t learn the true extent of why Violet and Keeran are perfect for another until the end of the book, their connection felt different to me than that of the previous kings and queens. In the beginning, I felt like things between them were moving faster than I expected them to, but once all was revealed it made complete sense because their match was possibly even stronger than that of those before them. As a result of what Dahlia endured while being held by the Entity, the kings learned a lot about what they are fighting against. But the knowledge also brings with it a multitude of new questions and concerns. Even though I hate why his introduction was needed, I cannot wait to learn more about the Nightmare King. But until his story comes, I’m looking forward to reading The Winter King next to see what will befall Kristopher as he claims his queen and what the Entity has in store for the kings and queens.
I reviewed my personal copy of this book.
