About the Book:
Title: The Queen’s Crown
Series: Court of Midnight and Deception
Author: K M Shea
Release Date: January 15th, 2021
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Since the day I was crowned Queen of the Night Court, someone has been trying to kill me. Yay, me!
Finding my would-be-killer has been last on my to do list for a long time—which should tell you what a dumpster fire my life has been. But I can’t ignore it anymore. Whoever is plotting against me is getting serious. If I don’t do something soon I might not survive their next attempt.
Normally, I’d count on Rigel—my consort, who also happens to be a deadly fae assassin—to have my back. But he’s been gone for two months, and when he finally returns he won’t say where he’s been. Great, that’s totally not sketchy.
To make matters worse, I love Rigel—and he doesn’t believe me when I tell him! How’s that for romance?
New to do list: catch my would-be killer and convince my own husband I love him. All in a day’s work for the Night Queen.
I knew I should have demanded a job description before I took on this queen gig…
Crown of Shadows is the final book in the Court of Midnight and Deception urban fantasy trilogy and is part of the Magiford Supernatural City world. It features fae, werewolves, vampires, and wizards. It’s packed with humor, adventure, and a sweet, slow burn romance between a reluctant fae queen and the assassin who tried to kill her.
After three months, all of the Leila books are finally out! I am incredibly grateful that Ms. Shea worked so hard to put all these books out in three months. They were completely amazing, and the ending was even better than I expected. And of course there were tons of plot twists I never saw coming. One in particular totally shocked me!
Leila’s life pretty much sucks. Someone is trying to kill her and they’re getting more and more serious. Normally, she would rely on her husband, Rigel. But he’s been gone for two weeks. And when Leila told him she loved him, he didn’t believe her. So now she has to figure out how to catch her killer and convince her husband she loves him. Just another day in the life of the Night Queen.
This book was completely amazing! I’m going to gush about Leila and Rigel in a second, but we need to talk about the other characters first. We got to see how much Leila had touched everyone, especially Chase and Chrys. And may I just say I totally ship them!! They were completely adorable. And of course Skye and Indigo were awesome per usual, and there are some hilarious scenes with Skye and Dione. But Leila’s circle is still missing two people: Rigel and Linus.
We were left on a major cliffhanger for Linus and Leila’s relationship, and while it takes awhile, it does get resolved. And for all you Linus fans it’s also clear he’s not as idiotic as he seems. Thankfully, Rigel comes back too, but he doesn’t understand that Leila loves him. Even though it takes them a while, they are adorable together. I love how Leila brings out the fun side of Rigel, and Rigel is the only one who Leila can break down to. They’re soooo cute!
Unfortunately, they don’t have a ton of time to figure their relationship out because of the killer. And let me just say you will not believe who it is! It was crazy, but at the same time, once I found out, I could see all the clues. But one thing I love about the K.M. Shea books is that they lack stress. I can actually enjoy reading her books instead of being worried all the time. The last thing I will say is try this series, and any of the K.M. Shea series because they are amazing!!
