Recently anointed king of the Dark Court, Niall struggles to forge a new relationship with his subjects--and with the former Dark King, Irial, his once-friend, once-enemy, and now possible-advisor.My Thoughts: I ADORE the Wicked Lovely series. The Irial/Niall/Leslie triangle (not a love triangle, mind you, but a potentially fantastic triad) remains one of the bog draws for me. Of those three, I've been enamored of the former Dark King since he first stepped on page.
Irial is powerful and deadly. He makes hard choices for the good of his people - choices that sometimes hurt those he loves the most. And I feel for him. It hard to see him choosing the path he chooses at times because you can see how much it tears him up. But for the good of the Dark Court, he does what has to be done.
So, how hard is it for a former king step back and become the new king's advisor? In Irial's case, the way he feels about Niall leads him to do his best to protect him. While this is noble, as a new king, Niall needs to know the things that Irial is keeping from him. Watching them butt heads is wonderful and kinda hot.
I love these glances back into this world. They work so well. <3
