Jess's Review ~ Lawless Kingdom by Natalie Bennett

Lawless Kingdom (Reign & Ruin #1) My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was an introduction to Ms. Bennett's new series. Being as such we are left with a bunch of unanswered questions and the promise that things are about to get a whole lot more "Bennettish." If you are not familiar with this author's work that means nothing, but to those who are not, who know exactly what that means and I cannot wait.

Meet the kids of Pesadilla Prep who are unlike any kids you likely went to school with. The Knights, Rooks and Barron's run things and make the rules. Their punishment for not abiding by said rules can get a little bloody. Judas is the affluent, stone-cold, leader of this group and has his sights set on Rhiannon Clermont.

Rhiannon hadn't been part of this click or even the school until her senior year. For reasons unknown she finds herself in a place she doesn't belong, with people, she doesn't really care for and on a path that is murky at best. She is a strong character and doesn't take crap from anyone. She has lived her life in blissful ignorance and things are about to crumble.

There is still mystery surrounding her past and where she finds herself. There is this intense attraction between her and Judas. She likes to push him away and he likes to yank her back in. Where they go from here is anyone's guess. There are also other characters that will likely come out and play as the series continues. This was a dark and erotic story and not for high schoolers, but it was actually a bit mild compared to the things that this author creates. I am interested as to where they are going and what is to become of little nuggets of information left along the way. I am thoroughly intrigued by this new world and I feel like I am prepared for where this is going.
