Book Review: The King by J.R. Ward


Book Description

Long live the King… Less

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the ening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk.
Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out… or tortured legacy take over?


The main storyline of this book is Beth wanting to have a child with Wrath, “The King,”  which is very dangerous for female vampires. I really enjoyed that storyline. The decision whether to have a child was touching and you could easily relate to both sides. There are also other unknown complications that make for a very interesting read.

Now the problems, If Beth and Wrath’s story had taken up a larger part of this book, it would have easily been a five star rating. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Every few pages I was thrown into a different couples story. And it wasn’t just one or two other couples but several until I actually lost count. I felt like I was reading a compilation of small novellas that were all bunched together and shoved in every which way. So, unfortunately, I can’t just rate this book on the small part I enjoyed. As a fan of J.R.Wards previous work, this was a huge disappointment.
