ARC Review: "The Emperor of Evening Stars" (The Bargainer #2.5) by Laura Thalassa

The Emperor of Evening Stars by Laura Thalassa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

In the beginning, there was darkness. 
Before he met Callie, before he became the Bargainer, there was Desmond Flynn, the bastard son of a scribe. A boy born to a weak mother, cursed with little magic, and destined to marry a slave.

But fate had something else in mind.

Till darkness dies. 
From the barren caves of Arestys to the palace of Somnia to the streets of earth, this is how Desmond Flynn, a fairy who began with nothing, became the Emperor of Evening Stars.



I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

This book-length novella follows the story of Desmond before he became the Night King and also before meeting Callie. It begins with his life as a poor boy who later became the most notorious thief and finally the King of the Night Kingdom. Also, from a point later we can see his POV after meeting Callie and how he felt when he met her for the first time.

I must admit that the guy has an amazing poker face. And honestly, I couldn't help but compare him a little to Rhysand from the ACOTAR series. They are both amazing and Des has a wicked sense of humour. This connects nicely to the third book which I hope won't be as bloody as I fear it.

And don't miss the amazing first two books of the series!

About the author:

Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.

… or something like that anyway.

When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
