Overview

Jason Alberich wears the crown of the sovereign of the warlocks, a dark breed that uses darker magic. He wears it well, skillfully wielding a power that would corrupt others. Yet he has paid the price for his control, bearing the scars of a time when his power had control over him. He is haunted by the regrets of a shady past and now lives each day and night with an isolated soul.

Chloe Septeran is an Akyri like no other. A member of a race that must depend upon warlocks for sustenance in exchange for servitude, Chloe runs from the dark magic users, choosing instead to live free of their hold. She has existed empty and "hungry," but stubbornly free of the warlock's dark embrace. However, now the fates have chosen to bring her running to a halt, as the thirteen Kings each discover their queens—and the Warlock King discovers his.

A mighty power is awakening, wreaking havoc on the supernatural world. The thirteen Kings, their queens, the werewolf nation, and the witch covens with their high leader, Lalura Chantelle, must band together and stand strong in the face of a dawning nightmare that threatens the very fabric of all they hold dear . . . and from which none may escape.

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

    This series grabbed me from book #1, but this was, without a doubt, my favorite installment of the saga thus far!

    Immediately upon finishing the book all I could do was shake my head and say "Sheer brilliance; Heather
    Killough-Walden does it again!"  

    Let me start by simply saying that Heather is a true artist! She paints a vivid fantasy landscape with words,
    intertwines it with reality, and delivers it with heart and poetic prose.  Her worlds are incredibly thought out and
    unique, her characters robust and engaging, and her story arcs full of mystery, intrigue, romance, and emotion.
    Unlike some other authors where I find I don't even think about them while reading the story, it's hard to ignore
    the sheer amount of 'self' that Heather puts into her writing and her incredible tales, and it just makes me - as
    a reader - feel even more privileged to read her work.

    O.K, on to the tale at hand (though if you follow my reviews, you know I don't do spoilers!)... 

    Our hero (the incredibly powerful Warlock King) and heroine (an Akyri fighting against her base nature of having
    to live off of the power of Warlocks) met very briefly earlier in the series via simple yet electrifying eye contact
    across a crowded street. It was obvious, even in that split second, that there would be something special there.
    Chloe was dealing with her own personal issues, however, and Jason was helping the other 12 Kings in their
    fight against those that sought to destroy them, so it was also evident that fate would not be satisfied
    immediately.  

    Throughout their action/mystery/romance/tension-filled journey towards one another in The Warlock King, we
    learn that there is way more to Chloe AND Jason than meets the eye and/or that we were made privy to earlier
    in the series, and all of that coupled with the continuing story arc of the series itself made for some pretty
    amazing reading. 

    This is an important book of the series. It wasn't completely and solely about Jason and Chloe. We got
    glimpses into the continuing storylines of our hero and heroine (the Vampire King and Queen) from book #1,
    the Phantom King and Queen from book #2, as well as introductions to several of the other Kings.  Heather
    also gave us additional information regarding our villains (complete with some pretty heady surprises!) and a
    slight sneak peek into what we might expect in the fight to come (though with Heather, you always get more
    than you think!). :)  

    I know that is incredibly vague and that you are all probably groaning right now in frustration, but I don't know
    how else to gush without giving things away.  

    To sum up... LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Warlock King a VERY well deserved 5 Skulls and would
    recommend it to everyone! And while the book stands well on its own, I would strongly urge you to read the
    entire series in order to get the most out of it, and simply because every book so far has been absolutely
    incredible!

    I loved this book and I¿ll never look at stars the same again.

    I loved this book and I’ll never look at stars the same again. The Warlock King seemed to be a turning point in the series. All the characters from the previous Kings books as well as your favorites from the Big Bad Wolf series play a large role in this story. This book does a great job portraying the world that Heather Killough-Walden has created. It shows the reader how much the 13 Kings and their Queens destinies are intertwined. It also introduces us to the new threats that they all face. The Warlock King is fast paced with several twists along the way. I’m excited to see where the series goes next. I highly recommend this series as well as the rest of Heather Killough-Walden’s books.

    This book was freaking awesome. I've been waiting and waiting to read more of Jason's story since we first met him in The Big Bad Wolf bundle. He's full of mystery and dangerous, but oh so sexy and good at the same time. Full of dark magic and a dark past, his control over his powers is absolute. He's found his Queen in Chloe... Chloe is an Akyri on the run. She's running from her fate with Jason, she's running from who she is and what she can be. When the two finally come together, wow, lets just say it's smokin hot! I love that we got to meet more of the other 13 kings, and get to see characters we've already come to love. I can't wait for the next book, and to find out more about the cliffhangers we were left with. I love reading HKWs books, they're all among my favorites and I'm always eagerly anticipating her next release, regardless of which series it's in.

    Amazing again. I love it. There is so much going on in this book, so many people in play and yet I did not have a hard time knowing who was where and what they were doing. I still don't have all my questions answered but some of them. and I am very interested in what/who The Goblin King will bring to the table so to speak. Again AMAZING.

    Another great book by Heather!

    The Warlock King is another great book in The Kings series. I will now have to reread The Vimpire King and The Phantom King. I hope it doesn't take long for the next one to come out.

    Heather Killough-Walden's, "The Warlock King," is abou

    Heather Killough-Walden's, "The Warlock King," is about far more than WK Jason Alberich and his destined queen, Chloe Septeran. This
     is a book of many stories, some woven separate from Jason and Chloe's romance, others woven around it, and still others woven directly
     into it. It continues the tale begun in the previous books: the ultimate joining of thirteen kings with their queens, as envisioned on a
    chessboard by high witch Lalura Chantelle. But the supernatural world they are a part of contains many intent on preventing this
    outcome. This novel reads almost like a series of vignettes at times, depicting scenes throughout that are so intimate and charming that
    they stand on their own in the moment: Roman D'Angelo, the mighty king of the vampires, sitting with his chin on his hands and a
    delighted smile on his lips as he watches his queen, Evie; four familiar werewolves and their seer chilling over darts and beer in a pub;
    Lalura Chantelle snoring away seemingly oblivious to immensely powerful figures filing into the room around her. There are many such
    "small" moments, as well as many of those big moments this author is known for, as she builds new worlds and creates images that linger
    in the mind's eye long after they have passed. Heather Killough-Walden manages this with the same courage and finesse she always
    shows as a storyteller. Finally, she reels us in with writing that causes us to linger as well: "He had done nothing so grand as to deserve
    this woman. He was an outcast, an abandoned one, and a loner. Yet here they were. It astounded him." That's just one of many passages
    I've highlighted. There is much in "The Warlock King," that I can't even touch upon without spoiling something, and which I know will stay
    with me for a very long time.

    Better and better

    I just love the books in The Kings series and this one is another great story. I love books that carry characters from one to the next while introducing new ones. Kind of like a family that just grows and grows and you get acquainted with them a bit more with every book. Very well written, very atmospheric and the story is wonderful. This is a keeper!

    Good read

    It was a good read & a good addition to the series. The only thing I had a problem with is that I didn't really feel the connection between Chloe & Jason. There was so much going on in the book that took away from them. They briefly meet a few times throughout the book & they know the she is to be his queen. Then she excepts it & the end. Just didn't really connect with the characters.
