Review: The Devil’s Crown: Part One by Monica James



Monica James

I was feared.



But all of that changed when the impossible happened—I fell in love. Only those feelings weren’t reciprocated, because who could love a monster like me?

My empire crumbled. People died. I went from being a victorious leader to lurking in the shadows, planning revenge on my half-brother who now reigns in my place.

An orphanage is where I find sanctuary, but when she walks into my world and evokes a yearning I thought long dead, my demons are awakened and want what they can’t have—her. Sooner or later, I knew I’d need to feed the darkness inside me.

Mayhem, power, and control course through my veins. I will use them to regain my crown, my throne, and then claim her, despite what solemn vows she might’ve made.

I will break them…and her.

Monica James gave just the extra spicy I was looking for in a dark romance by taking it there with Alek. The infamous villain is back and seeking to redeem everything he lost in this new series. Alek is not an easy guy to like given his past. However this book changed everything.

Alek reveals his entire soul in this book. It’s totally changes my perspective on him.  As I love a good redemption story but this book isn’t exactly. It’s an anti hero finding his place in his world on his terms. This book isn’t for the faint hearted.

The ride James takes us through is one that I was addicted to . Every little second counted and by the end, I was ready to start all over again.  It’s not an easy read, as Alek is trying to balance everything by himself and find love.

A ride which Alek is only just getting started with and  it will be interesting to see how he ends up.  Alek seems to be turning himself into something more. A new leaf is not exactly the right term to use. He trying to find his place in a world that he doesn’t know anymore. He is showing his softer side but I have to wonder what the cost. I guess I have to wait and see
