To Kill a Kingdom Reviews
remember when i said this book was good?? well it is, but you know what, the more i think about it, the more i've realized that the ending was anticlimatic as fuck and Lira and Elian's relationship can choke on balls the size of my pEn!!!!
i guess i really hyped this up and ended up giving it 4 stars in a rush because i was really enjoying it in the moment, but once the ending came and i actually used my brain to think about it, i was like hMmMmMmMmmmm NO THIS IS KIND OF A PIECE OF SHIT!!!!
Can I afford to add another book to my ever growing to-be read pile?
Am I going to add this awesome book that seems to feature not only a siren but also a handsome pirate prince?
Dark, seductive and oh so beautiful.
Dark as a stormy night.
Seductive as the call of a siren.
Beautiful like the bluest sea.
I marvel at how wonderful most of the 2018 YA releases have been. Even though the time I dedicate to reading is far less than what my heart desires (thank you adult life, really), discovering books that sing their melodies to my soul and enchant me to oblivion is a fair compensation. Reading To Kill a Kingdom was last week's highlight. A blessing. It was a retelling of the Li ...more
(I'm a big fan of caps so you'll see them a lot in my reviews)🙈
WOW...two 5 star ratings in a row?! March just started and it's already been a great reading month. Anyways, let's get down to buisness, shall we?
I LOVED THIS BOOK!! Is it weird that I am obssessed with the two main characters? They're f***ing murderers! I don't think that's ever happened before. Well...they're not THAT bad. Although they did threaten to kill people-and each other... wait no, scratch that, SPECIALLY each ...more
guys guys the hype surrounding this book is real I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people on my goodreads feed reading the same book ? it honestly makes me really happy that it’s getting the love it deserves and I cannot wait for this author to come out with some more brilliant works <3
initially this was a 4 star read but after a few days I’ve realized that maybe it needs be pulled down to a 3.5 bc I don’t know, I’m confused

Meet our two main characters--
Lira: In one move, I plunge my fist into the prince’s chest and pull out his heart.
Elian: Technically, I’m a murderer, but I like to think that’s one of my better qualities.
That should give you a sense of what to expect. To Kill a Kingdom is a pretty dark fantasy for YA and it tells a compelling, vicious story without falling into all the usual tropes. I was pleasantly surprised.
Lira is a siren princess, daughter of the Sea Queen, and known amongst humans as Princes ...more
Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.
I am just sitting here in shock and full of feels and alskfjal;skdjfa;lksjf GO ORDER THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW. How am I supposed to write a coherent review? Gah!
So if you haven't seen the description, this is somewhat of a little mermaid retelling, except there are lots of creatives spins that pull from other folklore as well! (For example, Midas ;))
Lira is a siren known as the 'Prince's Bane' - and she's infamous for killing princes. Yep, that's what she does. ...more
Two kingdoms that come with responsibilities we each have trouble bearing. Him, the shackles of being pinned to one land and one life. Me, trapped in the confines of my mother’s murderous legacy. And the ocean, calling out to us both. A song of freedom and longing.
I LOVE IT. This book is going on my all time favorites list!
Reading this book was an amazing experience, I absolutely flew through it. To me this book doesn’t feel like a standalone because I have grown to care for these characters ...more
