Ruined King book cover


Ruined King


Night Elves Trilogy #2


C. N. Crawford


Paranormal Romance


I’ve restored my soul, but now I’m trapped in the Citadel, separated from Ali. Worse, she believes I’ve betrayed her. And she’s desperate to kill me. Even as I work to save her, a great reckoning between the tribes of Elves threatens to ruin my plans. And if I don’t solve this, Ali and I will both end up in Hel.


4stars rating

Sooooo, this didn’t go the way I thought it would, at all 😀

We pick up a little while after the end of the first book. Ali is in the mines (aka prison), slaving away, while Galin is severely restricted due to the Helm of Awe he is wearing.
Hate, murder and pretty much total mayhem reign supreme when the elven factions go up against each other in a Winnowing. The winner rules all, or rather, as soon as the High Elves win, they will call for the utter destruction of the Night Elves. Something both Ali and Galin want to prevent, if only they could trust each other.

I’m not going to spoil it.. but let me tell you that you will not see that one coming, seriously!

The book itself:

The book itself was well written with no (noticeable) errors, it kept me entertained and eager to read more.

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and I must admit, I don’t like 1 very simple fact… that I have to wait so long to know how this continues and omg, I have so many questions!!! A very enjoyable read and a great continuation of the series 🙂
