She was born a princess. They made her an assassin.
One was an accident. Two a coincidence. By three, they would know. It would be harder, but I would avenge my mother’s death. These kings would pay that price.
Seven cities make up the Storm Queen’s Realm, each of their self-crowned, murderous kings are one of Princess Myrina’s marks. The treasonous curs may have banded together to share a stolen throne, but soon they will fall.
They thought her dead, killed in the massacre. They thought their rule secure, but Myrina of Stormskeep has awoken. With the help of her loyal bloodsworn, the shadow princess of will have her revenge.
For fans of The Witcher and Game of Thrones—a new princess set on vengeance is here to steal your heart.
There is much to like in Melissa Wright’s latest book Seven Ways to Kill a King. You have mythical lands, evil kings, and a princess who wants to make it all right again. There is also fighting, mystery, and romance. Melissa Wright has crafted a well-written fantasy that will draw in many readers. It is action-packed and will keep readers reading.
Miri has been in hiding since her mother was murdered. The kings who now rule are becoming more and more wicked and greedy. Miri and those hiding her are no longer safe. Miri has been plotting for years as to how to kill the seven kings who replaced her mother – will she succeed or will she be killed in the process. Her older sister, the rightful queen, has been kept hostage since their mother was murdered – what kind of shape will she be in when Miri finally finds her? There is also a rags to riches – type romance, but I don’t want to give too much away about that.
Seven Ways to Kill a King is a stand alone novel, but I’d like to see more written about these characters.
Potential Area of Concern
The book contains liberal use of “Gods,” “Gods dammit,” “seven Hells” and other curse-like phrases. These phrases may not be appropriate for some audiences.
While I think that teens would probably enjoy Seven Ways to Kill a King, I do not think the book is appropriate for a K-12 Christian school library. It may be appropriate for other audiences.
I want to thank Prism Book Tours for the complimentary e-copy of Seven Ways to Kill a King. This is my honest review.
