RISE OF A QUEEN
AUTHOR: RINA KENT
GENRE: DARK ROMANCE
SERIES: KINGDOM DUET #2
What to expect from Kingdom Duet:
✔️ Age Gap
✔️ Enemies to Lovers
This is my kingdom. My territory.
I own everything and control everyone, Aurora included.
She shouldn’t have barged into my world with no armour.
She shouldn’t have caught my attention with no warning.
Alas, she did.
Then she thought she could disappear.
If a battle is what it’ll take to protect and own her, I’ll shed blood.
Wars aren’t fair, and neither am I.

What can I say about this book other than this author is a the queen of writing a dark romantic suspense that is sure to capture my attention right from the first page and leave me enthralled until the very end. Rise of a Queen is the 2nd book and the conclusion to the Kingdom Duet. It is not a standalone, but I shall be vague in this review in case you haven’t read book 1 yet. Rise of a Queen is a thrilling, enemies-to-lovers novel that is complete with intriguing characters, a well thought out plot, and several twists and turns thus making it an entertaining read.
This book is chalk full of all the things that I come to expect from this author:
- A powerful, complex anti-hero with hidden depths
- A flawed, but strong heroine
- Skirts along lines of dark romance
- An aura of suspense with shocking revelations
- Gloriously hot kindle-melting scenes
While I enjoyed Reign of a King, I actually found myself more invested in the characters and storyline with Rise of a Queen. I liked Jonathan in book one, but in this novel I found myself falling for him. He remains that commanding, arrogant anti-hero but I was able to see those tender moments as well. While Aurora does make some questionable decisions which at times annoyed me, for the most part she remained a likable and resilient character. The book moves at a good pace and it was so easy to become immersed within its pages. I really enjoyed the interesting plot twists as well as the evolution of Jonathan and Aurora’s relationship.
If you have enjoyed this author’s previous works or Reign of a King, then you will definitely want to check out this book.
