The King’s Fate
Corvidae Guard, Book 1
by Rissa Blakeley
Release Date: June 7, 2016
In a world where Fae and Vampire will forever be at odds, a Vampire wins the crown, ruling the Fae Realm for the first time in history.
An Incubus, Leolin Kyffin, and his barren Succubus, Louise Bach, plot to end King Zachariah Orsova’s life, allowing them to rule the Fae Realm.
Through Louise’s encouragement, Leolin walks into a female Vampire’s dream and mates with her, breaking Zachariah’s law. His hope is to create what he thinks will be the most powerful half-breed known to the Realm.
When Zachariah kills the Succubus, Leolin vows revenge, sacrificing his half-breed son, Monty Saxon, and using him as a pawn to tear out the King’s heart, hoping to make him feel the pain of death while living.
When Leolin walks into Zachariah’s dreams, he fills his mind with unimaginable thoughts and desires. Doing the same to Monty, he secures his devious plot, patiently waiting for the precise moment Zachariah and Monty will be brought together as one.
The choices Leolin makes all add up to delivering a fate worse than death to his half-breed son and the King of the Fae Realm. Will Leolin avenge the murder of Louise? Will Zachariah and Monty survive, or will they be left suffering in the end?

I have tried very hard not to make comparisons in my reviews over the last year, but it’s impossible when a book so much resembles something written by one of my favorite authors, there is just a huge Anne Rice vibe going on here and I can’t really not mention it, so there it is. Now, that never means to me that the author just copied said other author, but that the quality and rhythm of the writing is reminiscent of the aforementioned. I absolutely want more of this series and am very pleased to have read this first part though I do feel a bit sad there was a semi-cliffhanger ending. All in good time though. The King’s Fate was not only sexy and smart, but it was also a great showcase of the author’s passion for words. There weren’t too many pages without a quotable segment, or a phrase so well turned it made me smile (or, um, other things. Onions.)
This would certainly be for adults only, but I highly recommend any fantasy or paranormal fiction fan to pick this up today!
