The Prince’s Prisoner (Feared Fables #2) by Klarissa King/Isla Jones
Genre: New Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Rating: 2.5/5 stars
(DISCLAIMER: All thoughts and opinions are my own.)
When Callie goes to the Fae world to save her friend, she is entrapped in a curse to dance eternally. Then, the Prince of War decides to help her out, whisking her away to his court and she is to be his unwilling bride to bear him an heir.
I never read the first book, but this book can be read as a standalone. Although in the synopsis it does mention to be aware of themes, it doesn’t mention what they are, so technically, there was no point to the trigger warning since they didn’t attach anything to it and I had to figure it out for myself which I was not happy with LOL. When I read the book I didn’t even know that it warned about the themes. (I usually request books months in advance and just jump into them when I do get them.)
I shall put my own then, TRIGGER WARNING: Violence & Domestic violence
I liked the world building and story as it was pretty straightforward and it almost seemed to remind me of a mix between Beauty and the Beast plus The Cruel Prince. I initially liked the way it was executed until halfway throughout the book where the problematic stuff starts happening and I dropped my rating.
Honestly, it wasn’t badly written nor was the world building bad, I just wished a few things would have been done differently like the abuse and violence. I would be more inclined to accept them if they pushed the story or character forward, but this one didn’t really do that for me. I also wished that it had ended even before Affay’s POV.
