Empress Game: The Empress Game Trilogy Book 1
The male lead, Malkor, was not as deep for me but I still enjoyed him. His internal conflict was fueled by the knowledge that he caused Kayla's pain.
I did think that the way the two characters came together was a bit rushed. I was torn on 4 or 5 stars because of that. It's just that the first kiss scene seemed out of place to me. Still, I couldn't put this book down.
It does end on a cliffhanger. A pretty steep, very intense cliffhanger really. Often I am left irritated by those but in this case, I saw where it had to be there. Without that ending, the book would have been less satisfying. I will be putting this author on my watch list. I can't wait to see where she takes Kayla and Malkor next.
