Twelve years ago, our fates were sealed with a kiss.

We are all, for better or worse, doomed to love each other until death do us part. My heart belongs to Proserpina and St. Sebastian
even if he no longer wants it.  Even if she has left it behind to follow him.

Delphine’s fled back home, and Becket’s holy calling is in peril.

And now only Rebecca and I remain at Thornchapel to face the unknown.

The door is open. The door that shouldn’t exist; the door that people have died to close. I don’t feel like the lord of the manor...I don’t feel like a king or a wild god. I am a friend and a boyfriend and a brother
and a failure at being all of these things. But the door doesnt care about my guilt. It only cares about the sacrifice I’ll make to close it.

As the bruising dark of Samhain approaches, so does the fate of our circle, of Thornchapel and the village and the valley beyond it. And I must don the crown, because one thing is still true, even if I must face it alone.

Here at Thornchapel, the kings must go to the door.

Here at Thornchapel, all kings must die.

↑ These are the six young people this series is about. ↑
They've known each other since that summer they spent together as kids at Auden's family's estate in England - their parents were friends.... or something.☺
Now, twelve years later we're back at that house.

And that's all I'm going to tell you about this final book - well that's not even about this book! That was part of my review from book #1. But I just can't tell you much more about this!
Well maybe a tiny bit. We all remember how the last book ended. Basically everybody left and now it's only Auden and Rebecca left at Thornchapel.
And we also know that there might not be a happy end for all of our darlings - because of that studid legend of the door and the king and someone has to die and whatnot - you remember, right?
I was really scared going into this.
It takes our six darlings the whole book and lots of research and very sexy sexy times and discussions and dramatics and whatnots until we finally ... well, that's definitely all I'm telling you ...  LOL☺ READ IT!

After reading this final book ... I still have to say that this is a
So different than all the other books out there.
It's Beautiful. Adorable. Heartbreaking. MUCHO EROTIC. Mysterious. Queer. Kinky. Amazing. Weird. Historic. Strange. Paranormal. Wow. And so much more! It's basically ALL THE ADJECTIVES!!!

Grab a mug of hot chocolate and read this. Or better yet - read all the books in one sitting!
You might want to hire someone to bring you all the snacks and beverages though!

... I'm pretty sure Netflix is already waiting 'round the corner to grab this series!!! But if not, then someone has to call them asap!!!!! ☺ This would be so good as a tv show! All those hot boys and gals! GIMMEE!!

↓Links to the book & Author ↓

Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).

She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in one-room school house in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they're so naughty we don't talk about them.)

The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and Instagram. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.
