Esh is the undisputed ruler of the underground fight scene, Nalah is a member of the Guild and she needs his help to get into the greatest cage match in the New Realms, but Nalah better be prepared because when Esh fights for something he always wins and he wants her in this thrilling paranormal romance.
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of suspense, action and romance. The author brings the story to life with well written words and details that capture the imagination, while the fascinating world and captivating characters draw the reader deeper into the story and ensure that they want to know more.
Nalah never stopped loving Esh, but she’s not sure if she can ever forgive him what happened five years ago. Esh made the best decision he could at the time five years ago and it cost him his Nalah ad his best friend, but he’s determined to have her back and the attraction between them still burns hot and the passion scorches the reader. The reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as the two try to work out their personal issues while staying one step ahead of all the bad guys surrounding them and do the job they came for.
Spine tingling anticipation builds as they get closer to their goal and more pressure is piled on as Nalah realizes just what she asked Esh to do and then she discovers that there are more people involved than she thought are some extremely evil. Surprising twists and exciting action scenes keep the reader on their toes and I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning and since I haven’t read the first one I am going to have to fix that and I can’t wait to read the next one.

The Cage King, A Novella of the Entwined Realms, Danielle Monsch
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
So, second ( or perhaps 1.5) book in the series. I’ve not read book one though from sample and reviews I’m not sure how they connect, and I don’t think that affected how I felt about this novel.
Its a strange book, full of magic and mysterious characters, people who are not what or who they seem, the usual rich, murderous bullies and a search to retrieve a missing magical ring that could prove disastrous for the world. Lots to pack in to 142 pages, and perhaps that's part of my problem. I felt there was lots going on, but there wasn’t really enough info or time spent with the leading characters for me to take to them. Nalah seemed to still be blaming Esh for the tragedy of five years past...and yet he was her lover and her brothers best friend. They’d all been friends since they were very young, and helped each other survive a very harsh existence on the streets. So to have just left him as she did – well, I could see why he wasn’t happy about it. The story of the cage fights, and the man running them, didn’t seem to marry up properly for me with the magical side of events. I wasn’t sure why he’d raided the Guild and stolen such precious items – or how he managed to do it being un-magical himself, and ( you’d think) the Guild would have them well protected.
Given the Tour with the fights was kept very secret and Esh had refused to join up til now, it seemed to me Nalah was naive not to consider the danger to Esh life. For all that she professed she was going to hold out against him and his attraction that didn’t last long ( but did give some searingly sensual moments). To be honest I wasn’t sure where the focus was here – the fights and the lust for blood and power, or the Magic and the power that comes from obtaining certain artefacts. I’m not keen either on danger being overcome by unknown and last minute interactions...but that's me Winking smile
Stars: 2.5. there were parts I liked but overall it just felt too muddled for me.

To the Victor belong the Spoils, and as the Ruler of the Fight Scene, all the spoils belong to Esh - Money, Fame, Power... Everything, except one woman who disappeared five years ago.
Now Nalah is back, a member of the Guild and in need of his help to get access to the greatest Cage Match in the New Realms. To Nalah, this is nothing but an assignment, Esh only a tool to be used to collect a magical artifact of great power, and she will not, will not, allow the fire that has always burned bright between them to reignite - no matter how much Esh tempts her.
Five years ago Nalah left, and in that time she may have forgotten something, something Esh will remind her of - when The Cage King fights, he always wins.
I really adored the first book in this series, Stone Guardian (Entwined Realms Book 1)
and if you haven't read it yet and are looking for a great new Paranormal Series, you really should pick it up!
This novella continues the wonderful magic world building began in that book. The couple is great as is the action. They were childhood sweethearts if that term can apply to street kinds and I think it can. Things went wrong and this book has them reuniting. Esh, our hero, is very alpha but also tender and steadfast. Our heroine, Nalah, is portrayed with deft psychological truths and is easy to like.
There are parts of this novella that are painted with a less detailed brush than I would like but I am happy to return to this would and see this couple's journey.
There are some fun surprises along the way and the cast of mythological and magic beings is not to be missed.
I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it!

The more I read Danielle' s stories the better I like them. She doesn't pull punches so her characters are real people/creatures. I liked this novella. Nalah grieved over her brother for 5 years and joined The Guild. Esh loved her and was part of his death. There are sparks when they meet again. Esh makes a living with cage fights. Nalah was to get a ring during a Tour contest. Esh swears she won't go alone. There were lots of HOT moments between them not to mention the action in the fight cage. You will be surprised at the end of the book. But first you have to get this book. Hurry Hurry Run Run! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.Was this review helpful?
