For me, this tale was as much about the leads’ self-discovery – not to mention loyalty and friendship within the clubhouse, and the simultaneously cruel and occasionally hilarious[?] ghost of serial-killer William Fane [is it wrong I sorta loved him a little?], of course – as it was about their path to true love. I loved the many contradictions of Knight and the fact he was the quintessential anti-hero and all-round perfect guy – swarthy good looks and a deadly façade, yet almost kitten-soft on the inside with a bone-deep need to stand up for and save those who are weaker or preyed upon – but with the major flaw of not being able to fully commit to Elliot, which caused the poor lad [and me] much in the way of sadness. But again, I thought the authors did a bang-up job of not rushing Knight’s transition to realising just how much he loved and couldn’t live without his best friend/lover in his life, and that monogamy isn’t something to dread when with the right person. And Elliot’s own almost metamorphosis from a penniless, lonely, scared and unloved young man, who spends his days hiding behind his overly-made up and OTT online persona, to someone a good deal braver and happier and surrounded by romantic and familial love, was even more captivating, and had me rooting for him throughout.
In all, a riveting read. A lot of pages, but KAM made each one count [no pun intended] with a fast-paced and sometimes very bloody and brutal and creepy peripheral plot, which synced perfectly with Knight and Elliot’s passion-filled and genuinely self-sacrificing love story. And Laurent and Beast fans can rejoice, as they’re not only patently in love and living their HEA, but also play a fairly active role in this tale, although thankfully, without ever monopolising it. So, between more ominous devil-pacts and a couple of new faces to the mix, and prospect Jake’s behaviour becoming increasingly odder by the minute, the third book, which focuses on him, should be another doozy of a read. Looking forward to it.
I was lucky enough to edit/proof this for KAM, and I can tell you that from pretty much the first minute where The Count was concerned, they had me setting off on the total wrong track. Which was great, because there's a danger of becoming too familiar with works by fave authors and missing stuff, and this had lots of stuff. Lots and lots of stuff, so yeah, you do need to read book 1 to be able to make the best of it.
It picks up not long after book 1 ends, and Knight's life is changing, but his focus is still on his Mercier ancestry...and on the club and his new duties. Both combine with the arrival of the busybody that is The Count - Elliot - and stuff I hadn't anticipated came into play. I'd had in mind from book 1, what with Laurent's time-travel and all, that I knew where this book was going, but nope, I was totally off-track.
It's a hard book to review without Spoilering, but let's just say that there are surprises in it. Some good ones, a lot of not-so-good ones, entirely in line with the dark theme of the series. KAM had me wondering if one particular character could/would be redeemed, and in the end, I was cheering for what they delivered. There's the unexpected in this, because, KAM are like that, and yes, it worked, big time.
There's a nice little bonus to this tale, kind of like an outtake that needed to be included, but that didn't fit in with the actual tale per se, and that was really sweet to see. I liked one guy's earnest planning and desire, and the other's sweetness and surprise, and that it all worked out perfectly. I could spoiler this scene with just one word starting with R, but I can't and won't do that - a certain character was just too sweet in his endeavours.
I enjoyed this read, and yes, there's clearly going to be more, because a couple of side characters stood out here, and no, I don't have a clue for what's in store for them, yay!
These two writers are evil. They seem to take great delight in putting their readers through hell and just as you think enough is enough, my boundary line has been stretched so much that it's gonna break, they pull something out the hat, just like a magician and you end up thinking "how did they do that?". I only hope that they never plot to take over the world cos' I've got a feeling that they might succeed, lol.
How do you prepare yourself for someone like William Fane? and let's be thruthful here, what about Elliott and his near zealot worshipping addiction for a Serial Killer? The answer is simple. You can't. And one of the main reasons why I love these two writers - you never know what they are going to deliver. You expect one thing and get something else entirely, usually something that blows your mind and trust me on this, my mind was blown on so many occasions, that I lost count.
I strongly advise you to read Book 1 first, it's the only way to fully understand what is going on but hang on tight, it is one hell of a ride.
Five big fat juicy stars from me.
P.s. Knight, my Dark Knight, I love you.
Knight is a great character - he is gorgeous, naughty and a sweetie inside (the perfect hero) - and I was rooting for him all the way. Elliot was a lot harder to understand, although I realise that he should be the more sympathetic one. The supernatural element worked well here and the secondary characters were also well rounded, I am looking forward to following Jake's story next.
I think this series is going to be well worth following, a great addition to the KAM library. I read this as an ARC but would happily have paid for it.
