⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Wow! Leo Gallo, son of Sebastian Gallo and Yelena Yenin, is overconfident, spoiled and always determined to win and be the best. When he was in high school, he was the top of the heap, but now that he’s in college and at Kingmakers specifically, he’ll find himself taken down a peg or two, for a short time.
Anna Wilk, the daughter of Mikolaj Wilk and Nessa Griffin, is a determined, dark young woman that has not worries about taking over her father’s business when he’s ready to hand it over. Don’t consider to be a weak because she’s a woman. She loves her mother, but she’s more like her father. Her parents have never kept her in the dark of who they are, how they came to be together or any darkness in their past and she’s fine with that.
I loved this story of coming of age, growing up, learning about love and what true kindness, honesty, and loyalty can bring you. Leo has a lot to learn about being the heir to his father’s business and world. The Quartum Bellum that the students will compete in during their year at Kingmakers will help to make these students into the people they are training to be at Kingmakers, for their worlds they were born into. I loved the story, the details about Kingmakers, the intense way that these students have had to learn to cooperate as a team and the lessons they can learn from their studies and the competition. Ms. Lark is very detailed in her descriptions of Kingmakers and the whole book made me feel as if I were seeing everything with my eyes, not just in my mind from reading it. The story is entertaining, enlightening and full of page turning intensity. The Epilogue is awesome and steamy. I love Sophie Lark’s books and have never been disappointed in any I’ve read. I give this story a 5-star review and am anxious to get my hands on The Rebel next.
