As usual with Karina Halle books, I don’t even know where to begin. But I can start by saying that before I read this book I’d been in a bit of a reading slump but at the same time waiting for this book to make its way to my Kindle so I could dig straight in. And it took sooo long, but it was sooo worth it.
Ever since I heard about The Swedish Prince, which is a book in the same series but works as a standalone along with The Wild Heir and this one, I was so excited because as you might know, I live in Sweden. I thought it was awesome that there was going to be a book with Swedish characters that takes place in Sweden, that wasn’t written by a Swedish person. And with A Nordic King I was just as excited because I fu**ing love Denmark, though I haven’t spent much time in Copenhagen I have spent time in other Danish towns. Needless to say, I knew I was going to love this one.
I feel that it’s also worth to point out that I actually love the younger woman with the older guy trope, maybe because I usually find myself attracted to older (fictional) guys myself , shhh don’t tell my husband 😉 Though I never found age to be a problem with Aksel and Aurora, no, for them it was more that neither one thought they deserved the other, or love at all.
You know, I started reading this at 1.30AM and finished it at 5.30AM, I just could not put it down. All of the sexual tension and longing was driving me crazy and I just had to finish the book before there was even a chance of me being able to sleep, luckily it was the weekend so it was alright for me to fall asleep in the morning and wake up at lunch time, right?
Honestly, I could go on and on and on and on about this book, Aksel and Aurora, the little princesses and Snarf Snarf (you’ll have to read the book) because it was just one of those books that you wish could go on forever. Now I’m hoping for a book about Aksel’s sister Stella which should probably be named A Danish Princess or something like that, because it’s what should happen next, naturally.
Just in case it wasn’t clear, I loved this book and it gets 5 stars!
A Nordic King releases tomorrow, September 21st on Amazon! In the meantime you can add it on Goodreads here: A Nordic King – Goodreads.
