***Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway*** The Dark King (The Fae Trilogy, Book 2) by C.J. Abedi

The Dark King Synopsis:

Darkness descends over Roanoke Island in the sequel to the young adult bestseller, FAE.

Devilyn Reilly has crossed over to the sinister world of The Dark Fae, reigning over the realm as its King. He is to fulfill a prophecy--to unite the Light and Dark Fae once and for all, but those who love him now fear that he will never be the same again, that he can no longer be trusted, that every trace of the Light he once had is gone forever.

Caroline Ellis, the final heir of the Light Fae, must learn to survive without the protection of her one true love. She must come to embrace her own strength to evade those in the Dark court who seek her destruction—for the power is within Caroline to use Light to change Fate itself...

Caroline and Devilyn’s chemistry is undeniable. Their destiny together inevitable if only they have the will to overcome The Darkness and The Fates.

THE DARK KING, the second installment of the stunning Fae trilogy propels readers into the mystical and magical world of the Light and Dark Fae, where star-crossed love ignites a battle between two powerful kingdoms, one that can consume everything that stands in its path.

Lesley's Review:

In The Dark King, life has taken Caroline and Devilyn on another life changing and dangerous journey. No matter how hard Devilyn tries to change what is to written, he can’t fight against what the fates have decided.

When we left Caroline and Devilyn in the end of the first installment of this series,Devilyn rescued Caroline from his father and decided to leave Caroline behind. He felt it was safer if she continued to live her life as she’s always known. He took her memories of who she was and who he was.  He felt he was rescuing her from himself. Once again, Devilyn must learn the hard way.

Feeling to secure in his capture and imprisonment of his father, He rules The Dark kingdom with a confident hand. What is it they say about those who are over confident? They make mistakes. They underestimate others. That’s exactly what happens to Devilyn in the Dark Kingdom. The new Dark King has enemies. Enemies loyal to his father.

Caroline, in the meantime, is going about her life as though nothing has ever changed. She’s started back to school, dreading drama, and trying to pretend she isn’t’ having strange dreams about the boy who never wanted anything to do with her, Devilyn Reilly. The boy who is strangely absent. With the low hopes of Devilyn coming back and actually having feelings for her, she starts to “notice” the new handsome football player in town. Rowan. Unlike Dev, Rowan doesn’t send mixed signals to her. Hmmm…..

Ultimately, Devilyn ends up back in the human world to protect Caroline. He continues with the fa├žade that he and Caroline never had anything more than a friendship. Caroline still harbors feelings that she doesn’t understand but the handsome Rowan is making it kind of easy to push those aside. But little does she know it’s making it harder for Devilyn to ignore the feelings he has for her, The Queen to his King.

Things definitely get interesting in this installment. We have jealousy, love, danger, more mystery and more adventures. I don’t want to take away the suspense of not knowing what is going to happen, so I am not going to delve any deeper. The story continues to get deeper while it’s being set up for the next installment. It moves fast and is over before you know it. This one does end on an “oh no” moment. Just to warn you. I turned the page and let out a curse or two.  The authors did a good job at keeping me interested and hooking me in for the next book. I look forward to finding out if fate can be changed. I give this one 4 stars.
