This is the first of three books that are totally surprising, extremely creative, and different than most books that we review. Seduction of a King took me completely by surprise, and kept me reading, loving the story and writing of this yarn.
This is the story of Wonderland before Alice fell through the hole. But it is not like a Wicked that was the story of Oz. This book tells the story from the Hatter’s point of view. I think I haven’t given anything away by saying that.
Kayden has fallen into the hole, and is transported to a land like none he has ever seen, with characters that are both scary and/or loving. The group that surrounds him in his daily life is a cast of sexual, sexy, strange men and women, who are not shy, are outgoing and outrageous, and entertaining as all hell.
Seduction of a King is the story of Kayden, of James the ruler of the entire kingdom and his wife Zenda, the lesser king of each of the sections of Wonderland, and a number of other disparate characters. Marcus is the most talked about throughout the book, as he is the messenger, so is involved in everything.
The book is sexy, it is scary, it is brutal, and it is exciting. It is as well written of a fantasy as I have read. The story keeps you guessing, trying to figure out who is good and who isn’t, where the story is going, and who will sleep with whom.
The sex is well written, mostly subtle and underemphasized. But at the same time, you can feel the attraction and chemistry between the different pairs of people throughout the book. And you can feel the hatred and deceit of Zenda as she plots and plans her schemes as she attempts to hide her jealousy of Kayden and her loathing of James different partners.
For an amazing step out of our world and into Wonderland, I highly recommend this book, and in extension, the series.
