Broken by the Horde King: Horde Kings of Dakkar, Book 4 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Nine years ago, he broke my heart and never returned. I vowed to forget him...if only I could.
When I was a child, I fell in love with a Dakkari boy. The prince of our clan. Rukkar, we called him. For he was destined to become the greatest horde king of our time.
He was Kiran of Rath Okkili. My friend. My strong, unyielding protector. His mischievous smile and golden eyes made my heart flutter and my soul sing. And just when I began to believe he returned my love...he shattered me so completely and never once looked back to see how I’d survived.
Nine years later, he’s returned.
Only, he’s not a prince anymore.
He’s a horde king. Cold and cruel. With molten eyes like sin and a body made for war.
I promised myself I’d never love him again.
He intends to make a liar out of me.
Because he not only wants my love again...he also demands me as his queen.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I didn’t like Kiran for a good portion of the story. Maeva seemed obsessed with him. There were things about both of them that made me angry and want to smack them upside the head. Their relationship was very messed up and had interference from other people too. Maeva came off as a doormat. Kiran was a man-ho while still thinking of her daily (grrrrr!).
End rant ***
That being said, I had passed the halfway point of the story before I started to like things about Kiran and Maeva. I still felt that they were better being apart but I tried to keep an open mind. Eventually, I decided that I liked both of them and I guessed that they could be together if it made them happy. The confrontations that occurred made me happy. Maeva and Kiran discovered that there had been interference from outside sources with regard to their relationship which was a big deal. I adored that Kiran wanted Maeva to be happy so much that he made a decision without talking to her that affected her and those important to her. Their happily ever after was very sweet. I recommend reading this book (but be prepared for some frustration!).
You can also listen to the audiobook. The narrators did a great job of bringing the characters to life. I recommend listening to the audiobook as well.
Trope: second chance
Yet another wonderful story in the Horde Kings series! Super angsty second chance that will tear your heart up before it gets put back together again. Can't wait to jump right into the next one!!
I also really struggle with second chance romance. By the end, the broken hearted party has forgiven the betrayer, but I just never do. In this case ***spoilers ahead*** Kiran never had a good reason for breaking her heart, sleeping with all those other females when he knew in his heart it was cheating (see my highlights) and generally just throwing away the best thing in his life. It literally made zero sense. Then eight years later, he dreams of her and knows he has to come back for her. It takes him a year to get back after the dream, but the good news is, hey, he stops screwing other women for the last year. The author tells us MULTIPLE times that Kiran stopped sleeping with other women for a whole year before trying to get her back. As if this deserves a reward. As if the EIGHT years plus wasn’t important. (I say plus because he was sleeping with other women even before he fully rejects her and he knows it is wrong which is why he hides it from her). He even makes out with HER SISTER. Again, for no reason but “youthful folly”. Throw in the misogynistic claptrap where the male screwed around far and wide for eight years, but the WOMAN could never bring herself to sleep with anyone and remains a virgin. GAG! It made her so pathetic and him such a pig.
All of this is why I just didn’t care about their happy ending. I didn’t forgive him. But that’s just me and my cold, unforgiving heart. *Your own preferences and tolerance for cowardly, selfish little man boys who need a prophetic dream to remind them to go back for a woman they hurt may apply.*
My criticism that I actually removed stars for was that the ending dragged. I found myself skimming paragraphs looking for something interesting. That may, in part, be due to the fact that I didn’t care about these two MC’s all that much. And my biggest complaint was the sheer amount of times foreign made up words were used. For example, the word “lysi” (yes) is used 176 times. Most of those times are entirely unnecessary to the sentence. For example, they ask a question, then throw lysi on the end of it. SO MANY fake words. It started to feel like a Feehan novel at the height of her Ancient Language hysteria, where you are wading through the nonsense trying to understand what you are reading versus enjoying the story. I found myself very annoyed by it. The previous novels in this series included fake foreign words, but never to the extent that it took over the story and left the reader frustrated.
The story is still a good one, if you are someone who likes to feel emotional while reading and are capable of forgiving characters for their hurtful past behaviors. If you are like me, and prefer to avoid these things, I’d just skip this one on the way to the next book. Nothing that important happens in the overall arc. The only thing you need to know is that the red mist is growing, animals are being changed into vicious crazed beasts that are attacking settlements, and they have sent for help from the mysterious priestesses.
