Enhance your purchase
The Dark Court is no place for a lady.
After tricking the king, Tempest has finally won her long sought-after prize - a place on the king's council - but it comes with a steep price. The king wishes for her to once again infiltrate the Jester's Dark Court and crush the remaining rebellion.
Stuck between her duty to her kingdom and her duty to what is right, she throws herself into the assignment, determined to discover her true enemies. Slipping into her role as the Jester's fiery plaything and personal assassin comes with an ease that terrifies her.
The charming and dangerous shapeshifter makes it too easy to forget her purpose and tempts her to join his world of depravity and eternal night. But Tempest is no man's pawn. Her destiny was never to sit back passively.
She makes her own path. Even if it's painted with blood, strewn with bodies, and scattered with the pieces of her broken heart.

Tempest, the lethal revenge-seeking assassin, now double agent, is trying to decipher her feelings for Pyre, the morally gray shifter she's supposed to hate, and then there's King Destin's heinous nature and his indecent directive. She's absolutely between a rock and a hard place, and hoping to convince some in each court to be her allies. Tempest is fantastic while trying to outmanuever The Hounds, the KING, and the Jesters court, and it makes for one heck of a roller coaster ride... and that cliffhanger at the end left me with my mouth hanging open! Complete shock! Did not see that coming... so ready for book 3!
If you like reading/listening about devious plans, shady characters with mafia vibes, Robin Hood-like band of brothers, plenty of snark, solving a mystery, cutthroat royalty, morally gray hot shifters, and sassy assassins, this is for you!

This book was too short in my opinion and not enough happened apart from the same back n forth banter from the first book.
Also.. our female character while complaining about men and the lust for power and control seems just as ready to join the battle all with the belief that her intentions are more honourable and more worthy than Pyres. This belief that she knows his peoples needs better than he does is kinda arrogant and annoying when in actual fact she barely knows him..shes just kinda spent the better half of two books being Judgemental and assuming.
Not sure if i will follow along for the next book.
Loved Pyre even as annoying as he was.. loved his friends and family.. Loved our female Hounds family.. not so sure about her though.
The story takes another unexpected twist and now I cannot wait to read book 3!
As before, the world building, the characters and the pace are nicely done.
