Review The Prince by Tiffany Reisz
Two worlds of wealth and passion call to Nora Sutherlin and, whichever one she chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make. Unless someone makes it for herâ€¦
Wes Railey is the object of Nora’s tamest yet most maddening fantasies, and the one man she can’t forget. He’s young. He’s wonderful. He’s also thoroughbred royalty and, reuniting with him in Kentucky, she’s inÂ hisÂ world now. But this infamous New York dominatrix is no simpering Southern belle, and Nora’s dream of fitting into Wesley’s world is perpetually at odds with the relentlessly seductive pull of SÃ¸renâ€”her owner, her lover, the forever she cannot have. At least, not completely.
Meanwhile Nora’s associate Kingsley Edge is only too happy to take her place at SÃ¸ren’s feet during her hiatus. SÃ¸ren is the only man Kingsley has ever loved, and their dark, shared history has forged a bond that neither the yearsâ€”nor SÃ¸ren’s love for Noraâ€”can break. But a new threat from an old adversary is forcing Kingsley to confront the past, reminding him that he must keep his friends close, and his enemies closer.
Oh what can I say about the Prince. I’ll start with this. I loved the previous books, The Angel, and The Siren. The Prince was really about Nora’s return to Wes and his lifestyle, and his introduction to Nora on a more personal intimate deeper level. And it was also really about two other little Princes. A young Soren and a Young Kingsley and how they met and how they became themselves and their lovers.
This was a bit of history about Soren and Kinglsey and while it was good insight, I really feel like it wasn’t a full NOVEL persay. I think it was more like a small history lesson that set up for a bigger book a bigger BOOM that is to come. And while I am excited about what is going to happen, I am also full of trepidation and well I’m a little sad. Because the only real end I see coming the only thing that makes logical sense, is something that well, its gonna suck. Now it makes even more sense given the Gothic horror nature and labeling of these books, the gothic erotic romance nature of it all, but I also don’t Â know how deep this entire thing is going to go.
I’m not sure how badly disjointed that this review is going to sound, but its almost like the focus that the books, the Sinners novels had is going to shift, its going to change, it has changed and that the series is no longer a weirdly tragic romance novel between two, or three very interesting characters, between Soren, Kingsley and Nora, but its become this…. thing, this life of its own, that has become Â larger, more all encompassing, not as focused as it was.
I liked the insight I got from the Prince about Kingsley and Soren and then the way that it tied into the rest of the novels, but at the same time, I felt like I didn’t like the exact direction the store was going in, but I have been supremely surprised by how much I liked the unexpected from Ms. Reisz before so maybe the next book will hit it out of the park for me.
Overall Rating: B
