⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
These two were sworn enemies, and now they were being pushed together to marry. Leonid was a King of his domain, and Sophia was a princess of her domain. Neither wanted a union, but they’re being pushed together for peace.
Sophia had dreams of her prince charming coming along to rescue her as a child, but that was taken away from her by her father when she was forced to make a choice. Her whole world was burned, and her dreams were crushed. She was turned into a cruel young woman, just like her father wanted.
Leonid is the King of the Delphi, even though he’s the youngest son. He works with his brother, sister, and their allies, the Irish. They are fighting against the Greek. Leonid’s family has a history with the Greek, and they finally have their retribution by taking out the King, but now they’ve brought war to the Irish as well.
I really enjoyed Leonid and Sophia’s story. They are both strong, determined, and drawn to each other even though they don’t want to be. There are secrets and lies that are making these two question the peace agreement that has been presented, but Sophia is really fighting it. When Leonid takes matters into his own hands, the whole city suffers. Now they are fighting against time as well to make sure that innocents aren’t put in the life of fire. I give this story a 4-star review and highly recommend the Brutal Reign series.
