Jennifer L. Armentrout is one my favorite authors and I was very excited about her newest release. The Wicked Trilogy was a lot of fun and she’s been spoiling us with a couple of novellas. Last year we got The Prince that left me wanting more. Last week the second novella, The King, was released. A big thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing me an ARC to read and review.
We are beyond excited to be sharing this release from Jennifer L. Armentrout with you today! THE KING is part of the Wicked series and it is releasing as part of 1001 Dark Nights. It just went live! Check out an excerpt and book trailer from the title below. Click here to grab your copy now.

“Jennifer L. Armentrout’s intoxicating new fantasy is her best yet!” New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter on Storm and Fury
“Dark, mysterious, and yet often hilarious, this riveting page-turner sparkles with innuendo and delivers a breathtaking romance; a stunning conclusion to the trilogy.
“ Library Journal on Moonlight Scandals
“With this first title in her new Dark Elements series, powerhouse author Armentrout delivers another action-packed, believably narrated ride through a paranormal world as seen by a teen.”Booklist on White Hot Kiss
I can’t go into too much detail, because The King is novella. If I dive into the story too much, you won’t have to read it at all. To start off I have to say that I’m happy I knew that we were getting a third novella while reading this, but that did nothing to help me prepare for the ending of The King. I was left speechless and with so many questions. Waiting a whole year for the next novella is going to be difficult!
This novella picks up where The Prince ended. Brighton is still busy avenging her mother’s death and Caden has some changes to adjust to being The King. I loved how sassy Brighton is and how Caden can be so demanding it’s just frustrating, haha. He’s definitely an alpha male that expects Brighton to do what he says.
Not all goes as planned and there is so much emotion in this book. I really felt for Brighton and Jennifer did it again with how everything was set up. Besides all the feels, there are also plenty of funny moments and references to my favorite fandoms. And Tink of course, he’s amazing as always. I really hope he eventually gets his own story.
I didn’t give this novella five stars, because I really would’ve liked at least one to two chapters from Caden’s POV. While I kind of understand why the author didn’t do this, I think at certain points it would’ve made this story just a bit more intense! With how amazing this story is, I would love full books, but I’ll be happy with what I get. I will be counting the days until we get the next novella!
