Review: Summer Queen by Amelia Wilde (King of Shadows #2)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Candi Kane PR.

Though this be but short, it is fierce! Yeah, yeah. I may have butchered that Shakespearean quote but it's rather fitting for this second novel in the King of Shadows series from Amelia Wilde. Summer Queen picks up where series starter left off. Persephone is gone and Hades is not a happy camper. Everyone may be against the two of them being together, but Hades refuses to have anything--or anyone, for that matter--to stand between him and the only woman he desires to be by his side. Persephone may have offered herself as payment of a debt, but while she was only giving her body in the beginning, Hades wants it all--including her mind, heart, and soul. What will it take to get her back?

Fair warning: You MUST read King of Shadows prior to reading Summer Queen. There is a continuing story line that will not make sense if you skip reading the series starter. Now, my expectations were mightily high when I was done reading with book one, and that meant I needed Amelia Wilde to meet them. Well, she did one better because she surpassed those expectations! And have I mentioned that there's angst and lots of it? Can you hear my inner angst addict dancing with joy? I loved the thrum of intensity and tension that was consistent from start to finish. Hades and Persephone are the sort of couple that demands your attention and devotion, and that's what they got on my end. I continue to be invested, so much so, that I'm already counting the days until Midnight Kingdom! Five stars! đź–¤
