I couldn't stop reading until the end. Truely breath taking and utterly heart wretching. To fall in love with the next King and Queen but cry and rage to the fate of our other beloved character. Thankfully Heather once again truely makes the world right itself even though it takes strength,determination,love and a little magic thrown into the mix. Waiting with bated breath for the Underlie King. Than you again Heather for a world of characters that are so real and easily loved.

Heather, Heather, Heather. I wish I could lock you up in a room and make you finish this entire series. I can't get enough of it! OMG. It was wonderful. The Seelie King picks up right where the Goblin King ended. The development of the story lines continue to unravel. The Seelie King and his queen are truly spectacular. I love how Heather manages to tell their story, while still keeping the bigger plot going. There is so much going on; yet it flows fluidly. Although I don't understand the need to have some of the death's that occur, no doubt Heather knows exactly why she is doing what she is doing. Another great book in the series and another great book by Ms. Killough-Walden.

This book was without a doubt, hands down spectacular. Who doesn't love romance, mystery, kick ass characters and sexy men. Once I purchased it, I could not put it down. Each page captivated my attention and drew me in deeper and kept me going to the end. Heather has such a unique writing style that captures her readers on the first page and never wanes. There is no dull part, there is no thoughts of "when will this get back to the plot". Everything ties together beautifully and I for one can not wait until her next book comes out!

The thing about some series is that it tends to get boring after the 3rd or 4th book. With this particular series, the author is a genius. Every one of the books is different and a very enjoyable read. I look forward to the next one in the series.

I like this series of books i really do but this one was awfull. It felt rushed and just in case any one has not read the book yet SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT........................... She builds up these big bad werewolfs in the other books just to have them destroyed in a few seconds by vampires....really? This book is missing alot i hope the next one is better.

I ready this book but it seemed like she was struggling to put together the story. It was short, seeming very random. Almost as if she just wanted to introduce the character for the Unseelie King book.

I wasn't as pleased with this book compared to the others in the series. Less than two hundred pages. Hoping for more with the next one in the series.

Loved the new story with the different location of Oxford. Nice twists in the story of changing the threats around much more interesting to still have an unknown evil out there. Now I can't wait till the next book.

As always, Heather Killough-Walden delivers on her stories. It is amazing how an author can introduce new characters and still keep older and current characters from blurring together. As the series continues, old allies and new allies are brought together in the struggle for peace and the right to live. Some characters even get second chances, to which we will see unfold in the series. The only spoiler I can give is one is safe. But alas, with all magic, nothing is truly what it seems in a writers world. We can only hang on and see where this ride takes us.

Avery is the Seelie King and he has found his queen. But someone is trying to kill one of them. He's not sure who the target is but he will do anything to protect his queen. When he finds out that she is a Wisher is in awe. Her kind is considered sacred. Until Selene and her sister were found wishers were thought to be extinct. Selene can't stand humanity. There is always stuff she wishes she could do to change things. Then strange things start happening and then Avery shows up and tells her that she is a wish fairy. She has a lot to learn and is able to make differences in the world for once. When the werewolves are in trouble she has no hesitation about jumping in to help. Even at risk to herself. And of course there is plenty of appearances from our favorite Werewolves! My opinion: OMG! I Friggin Loved it! Although I yelled a lot while reading this book. There are few WTH moments! I got the you are a weirdo looks from my husband as I'm yelling "oh no that didn't happen" and "What the heck is Heather thinking?". I have been addicted to this series since the start with The Big Bad Wolf series and all of the characters especially the werewolves are dear to my heart so when certain things were happening I was in freak out mode. You will definitely have to read this book to find out how Amazing it was! It's definitely a book that makes you sit on the edge of your seat in suspense. I highly recommend reading!! I can't wait for the next book! 'Read and Reviewed by LSK Sweetheart Reviews'

This was no doubt the best book yet in the King Series. Many series. as other readers have pointed out, can get boring about a few books butt with the King series it keeps getting better. I am always on pins and needles until the next one comes. One nice thing about  The King Series or any of Heather's books reread them, it just makes them better!!!
amygperez More than 1 year ago amaze me with how each story is independent yet woven into another like soft, warm fabric! I love that each king's independent from the others, yet we get the best of the others without missing our favorites! The hardest part is waiting for the next book because I tend to read them so quickly!  ...onto the next book!? ;-).         :-)

I could not put this book down until I had read the whole story Heather Killough-Walden is one of the best paranormal romance writers ever a true Bard!!!!

One thing I like about Heather's books is that she revisits her previous characters. So i always get my fill of my favorite characters and and still enjoy the current story. The seelie king addresses world problems  that in my opinion all of us wants to end. All in all a great read, I just wish it was longer.

I wish i could rate these books at a ten! They are amazing! I wish they were longer but that's for my own selfish reasons.

I feel ripped off. So short. 160 Nook pages! From 600+ pages in earlier books in the series to 160? Not good. Book six better be much longer. Books 1-5 got me hooked. I'm just disappointed. Hopefully the 160 pages are at least really good.

I almost want to say that this was my favorite of the series, but each book makes me love a different King. Being lost in this world was a fun one!

Seriously?!?!?! I’m starting to believe that the author is now determined to make her readers cry with each book in this series. Even with Lily’s vision at the beginning of The Seelie King, I was wholly unprepared for what it meant when it came to fruition. And holy heck did that scene hurt like a mother. But noooo, ripping my heart out once wasn’t enough for the author. What’s astounding is that all of the emotional hits I took as I read through this installment in The Kings series is that they didn’t directly involve the focus couple. Rather they were part of the series arc that continues to run through each book as we learn more and more about the master that Rafael answers to – Kamon – and what his end goal is. I was completely devastated and the only thing that kept me reading was I had to know how Killough-Walden “fixed it” and what trials Avery would face as he claimed his Seelie Queen. Hopefully this isn’t too much of a spoiler, but the novelty of The Seelie King is that the biggest threat the king faces when claiming his queen does not come from Kamon and his quarter. I won’t say who was responsible, but the attack on Avery and Selene nearly ends the Seelie King before he even has a chance to meet his queen, much less claim her. But it’s what allows for Avery to undergo the bit of change he needs so that he can help his queen through her transition. I found The Unseelie King’s theories regarding the attack to be as terrifying as the other kings did, but the truth was just as fascinating once it was revealed. Yet not nearly as entertaining as when Avery embraced his newfound darkness for a bit of mischief that led him to his queen. The Seelie King proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable read for me. With Avery being a bit off his normal game (and you’ll understand why when you read the book), it makes his “courtship” of his queen even more amusing. In part because she thinks he’s crazy, and in part because he’s more open to encouraging her transformation than I would have expected. That is, after he gets over his shock of what kind of fae she is and that The Wishers are no longer extinct. It was fun watching Selene get a bit of karmic justice while Avery guided her and kept her safe. And Killough-Walden demonstrates once again that she can pen a steamy mating scene that will leave no doubt about the claiming of the queen by her king. I love the way the author moves both the story arc and the series arc forward in The Seelie King, intertwining them when appropriate so that the other queens and kings can meet the new Seelie Queen and she can claim her place among the ranks – even if the author does make me cry as she does it. This was another great addition to The Kings series and I’m off to read The Unseelie King to find out what Killough-Walden has in store for the dark court. I reviewed my personal copy of this book.
