The Fall of the King
One of Stacey’s hottest couples yet…
and that is saying something from the author that gave us Ember and Eli (Darkness Series) and Zoey and Ryker (Collector Series). The Fall of the King is the third book in the Lightness Saga and in my mind one of the best out of them all. The Fall of the King seamlessly picks up where Lightness Falling left off but takes you on new adventure with two previously supporting characters; Lars, the demon king, who has been in and out of the picture since the Darkness Series and the most recently introduced Fionna, Kennedy’s older sister and powerful druid in her own right. And if you thought the action and the intrigue was compelling in the previous books, Stacey takes it to the next level with this continuation of the struggle for power and control of the future dystopian society brought about by the destruction of the world as we know it by the evil Fae queen.
Hands down, my favorite thing about The Fall of the King is Lars and Fionna. When those two get together, stand back! Their strong personalities, iron wills, and unleashed passion produce a wild tempest again and again. While Stacey is known for her hot couples, this is not a cookie cutter version of her stories. With Lars and Fionna she has created another unique relationship. The only issue I have is that I won’t know until the next book how it all works out.
The Fall of the King is not a stand alone book. While starting with the first book of the Lightness Saga will give you enough back drop to understand The Fall of the King you really need to read the Darkness Series and Collector Series to appreciate the intricacies and nuances of this and following books. You will not be disappointed and will find out why Stacey has such a devoted following of fans.
Tanya’s love for books has been a lifelong passion that she likes sharing with others. Reading is also the thing that relaxes her after a day of juggling the many responsibilities that come with being being wife to an amazing man, mother to four great kids spread around the world, business manager, and farm hand on their place in southwest Missouri; home to Akaushi cattle and a menagerie of pygmy goats, horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
