Rina broke me again, and I want nothing more now than my cat, Xanax, and a panic room.
Deviant King is a mind screw of grand proportion full of little hints and easter eggs enough to make one bedlamite. The story is chockablock of broken characters who are far beyond repair; every damn one of them has more baggage than the Louis Vuitton outlet store. All the females are needy for love and affection but trade any hope for good things so they can live off the interest of the lies they tell themselves about the great future the could have if only they spring there trap. ---Note to Elsa, Kim, Silvers, and Blair: You ARE your cage.
The only character that isn’t an A-hole of monstrous proportions is Uncle Jaxon. But don’t worry because in Steel Princess Rina breaks him too.
Both books have Elsa and Aiden considering the concepts of intuition and inevitability as their opening chapter. We return to philosophy, and Sartre: Elsa and Aiden both struggles with the ultimate existential crisis: are they the player or the game? In Steel Princess, there are references throughout Aiden’s POVs of his worldview; he’s the player; manipulation won’t work on him anymore. He mastered himself in the darkness of his childhood, nursing himself upon the suffering and pain forced upon him to create a self-possessed demon without weakness — a villain entirely in control of his victim.
But regardless of all Aiden’s encouragement, he hasn’t been able to get Elsa to stop being the game and to embrace her power. Elsa spent all of Deviant King saying bullies shouldn’t be understood. Rina has created her character with enough subconscious awareness to know that her amnesia, her scar, and her submissiveness are the seal on her Pandora’s box, and the key to it is to look into the abyss.
So in book two, our Steel Princess is born upon the sacrificial stone of Deviant King’s poolside cliffhanger; the revelation has finally come to Elsa that she needs to remover herself from the Kings’ gameboard. But it hasn’t occurred to her that all her research on strategy and attack is absurd in the light that she refuses to recognize what she controls. She is focused on the smallest most inconsequential parts of the larger picture and settles for crumbs when she owns the bakery.
This book is a rabbit hole of epiphany and discovery; admissions, confessions, and betrayals unloaded automatic assault weapon style and land like bombs. But the more you learn, the more you realize that you know nothing at all. For all of Rina Kent’s unbundling of backstory explaining what ingredients went into creating present-day Elsa and Aiden, we can’t begin to guess how two monsters will build their twisted kingdom. The last few pages only murky the waters further.
I hate it. I hate how badly I want more. I want a nap.
These books require multiple readings to start seeing Rina’s smart little hidden-in-plain-sight hints for Aiden, Elsa, the other horsemen, and side characters. I see new things with every read and have noticed she unmercifully diverts you from specifically stated facts through inflammatory dialogue between characters. It would help if you read the book once watching and hearing, once hearing all the conversation, and a few times with the sound off. I can assure you you will see things that will open your eyes. But I don’t recommend the obsessive investigation unless you want to join me in the misery that has me up at night penning theories in my journal and texting my therapist for psychiatric profiling answers.
My wrap is that Rina mean-girl styled effed with my mind. I love her. I don’t particularly appreciate how she makes me feel. I can’t wait for her to mistreat me with the last book. And she better not let up with her story-crafting when she moves further into the other Royal Elite Series.
I love the intricacies of her plot and the devastating brutality of the nature of her characters. Rina Kent is comfortable making her characters uncomfortable. I'm cool with that. She is so skilled at character development that I want her to challenge and break the horsemen and make all her heroines rage. And the people she writes are better with the more decay with which she defiles them.
Give me more.
Corrupt me too.
There are so many dark and twisted layers to these two and within this series; and with each book we follow Rina Kent's evil breadcrumbs to find some answers (or at least we try); but honestly... everything I thought I had figured out yeah… Nope! I got Nothing! Mind 🤯 blown! In part two we do finally get to see a bit of a different side to Aiden; we learn about his heartbreaking past and the true connection between Elsa and Aiden and their families. But with the answers that we are given... now there are so many more questions... and THAT ENDING! I once again launched my kindle clear across the room.
Real talk...I'm obsessed with this series; I cannot wait to see what's next ... and I'll be counting down the days/minutes until January 23rd when book three is released.🖤
Aiden....if this guy was real, i'd want to punch him in the face. But he's fictional and his possessive, alpha, obsessive, controlling ways get my twisted up in all the right ways. While he comes across as cold and calculating, we learn he is a sociopath. Steel Princess also captures a more emotional, loving side to Aiden, which of course was wonderful to see.
"King has no filter whatsoever. He treats you like I’ve never seen him treat anyone else.”
“And how is that?”
“Like he wants to shield you from the world. I don’t think you even notice it, but sometimes, he looks at you like he can’t breathe without you. And believe me, that’s not the King everyone knows.”
Elsa, aside from her sex fueled mind, may be one of the strongest heroines I have read in a long while. She gives as good as she gets, sometimes even better. Despite her fear of repercussions, she takes no nonsense from Aiden.
I am completely enthralled with darkness, lies, secrets, and deceit between the pages of Steel Princess. The suspense is there. The chemistry will set your kindle on fire. And the drama...you wont be able to turn the pages fast enough. Even the supporting characters are fantastic. A fantastic addition to the Royal Elite trilogy and 100% deserving of the 5 stars I gave it!

But then I got over myself and remembered that I did actually enjoy the story and there's no way that I could write anything like this, so I should enjoy it for its suspension of reality and the great characters that have been created.
So I would recommend this and I am looking forward to the final book.
The story hits new highs and lows and most importantly: the main characters have their work cut out for them, in order to survive what's coming. What started as "just" bullying has taken a turn for something that's MUCH darker.
One thing is certain: while your brain can be your greatest ally and shield you from unimaginable pain and sorrow, it can also be your worst enemy when you desperately need knowledge you've long since forgotten. And how do you access memories you don't even know you have?
I enjoyed this book a lot. Carrying on from where it left off in Deviant King, this book was certainly a rollercoaster and it surprised me so much. There were many twists and bombshells that I did not seeing coming and I’m left with SO many questions, especially after that ending. Is there any chance we can get the final part of the story like, now? 🤣
I loved that we got to see Aiden’s POV this time and got to see into his head, as well as Elsa from his perspective. Despite his questionable morals, I couldn’t help but love him.
The push and pull between Elsa and Aiden equally infuriated me and excited me. They are both strong and stubborn characters, both incredibly possessive of one another and I was dying for them to fully give into one another.
After this, I’m beyond excited for their last instalment and to see how their story plays out as I still have so many questions about them, their past and what is to come.
