The ‘series’ page for Underworld Kings gives the best description for the series.
“A multi-author series of standalone books filled with mafia families waging war, danger and violence, arranged and forced marriages, angst, love, and everything in-between. Light or dark, twisted or sweet, the Underworld Kings has something for everyone.”
So, while I don’t go with the underworld, biker club, mafia family backdrop all that often, I was curious to see how Carrie Ann would weave it into her much larger Montgomery Ink world. Because you know if the word Inked in is title–some Montgomery is going to be making an appearance.
Inked Kingdom introduces Stone as he is trying to figure out how to get out of the ‘kingdom’ that he no longer wants to be a part of—but knows that the only real way out is death.
With some unexpected ‘help’, he is able to escape and makes his way west.
Sarina managed to escape the ‘kingdom’ years ago and is making a new life for herself in Denver, though she still looks over her shoulder for the past. She has found a place for herself working for the Montgomerys and another ‘kingdom’ escapee.
When their paths cross in Denver, can Sarina put her fear of the past repeating itself behind her and reconnect with who Stone is now—or will the Kingdom be able to keep them apart?
The answers are within the pages of Inked Kingdom.
I enjoyed the introduction of Stone and Sarina, and the visit with the Montgomerys, and will be interested to see if they show up in future books. I give Inked Kingdom five out of five stars.
