"Enthralling and drop dead gasp-worthy."

- CD Reiss, New York Times Bestselling Author

American King, the stunning conclusion to The New Camelot Trilogy by Sierra Simone is available NOW!!


They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.
I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.
And I will survive this.
Long live the king.

I have been torn between DYING to have this book and hoping Sierra Simone would never finish it, simply because I didn't want these characters to go away. American King is the final book in this trilogy and it exceeded my expectations.

Sierra Simone created a world where these characters just lived and breathed. My heart was pounding, I had tears streaming down my face. I thought I knew what might happen with some of the book but there were curves I never saw coming. I truly feel this book was the perfect conclusion for this trilogy.

If you haven't read American Queen and American Prince you MUST do so before reading this. You won't regret it. These characters are so richly developed, so human you can't help but FEEL for them. From the moment I began reading these books these characters were just entrenched in my heart. I wanted the best for Ash, Embry and Greer-even when I didn't know what the best would be. Sierra Simone did.

I won't spoil anything with this book. I'll just say it was perfect to me. Each event that unfolded served these characters and the story perfectly. Was I happy reading this book? No. I wanted to throw my kindle sometimes. Other times I cried. But I never stopped reading because I knew this author was going to give me one hell of a story-and I was right.

I highly recommend this book.


3rd books in a trilogy are tough.  By the 3rd book, you are invested in the characters and when the books are cliffhangers, the readers have had plenty of time to chat about the book, and to formulate their own theories as to how the book will, should and shouldn't end.

I can honestly say I loved the ending...and I was not right about how it ended.  There were a couple of things I was right about, and there were a few things I sort of figured out...but most of it, nope.  Didn't guess right.

And, as such there is really not much I can say about this without spoilers, either from this book or the first 2 in the trilogy.

The writing is strong, and it is flawless. Sierra Simone writes this so well, and you can tell it was a passion project for her.  (If you read the afterword, there is a lot that gives insight into the author and the reasons for writing this series.)

I am going to keep this short.  I am going to say there were tears, and there were moments where I was ready to throw my Kindle, and yell at Sierra Simone.  I loved all 3 of the books, and I loved the ending.

I recommend this book, and this series.


When I was twenty-two, I met a prince. He seemed to be the exact opposite of everything I was—loud where I was quiet, smiling where I frowned, careless where I was careful, careful, careful. Embry joined the Army because Vivienne Moore wanted her son to craft the perfect politician's resume. I joined because it seemed like the place to continue my never-ending quest for honor; because becoming an officer in the Army had a certain cachet in my neighborhood; because I wanted to somehow cosmically return the favor for my college scholarship; because the structure and rigid hierarchy of military life appealed to me. Most importantly, I joined because I knew Carpathia was the most dangerous place in the world at the time, and I felt needed there in a way I can't describe. It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it. I knew that I was supposed to be there in the same way I knew that God was real or that I was bisexual. It was a fact, even if it couldn't be seen. And after all that, then I see this lieutenant refuse to break up a fight? When we were there on the brink of war and responsible for safekeeping innocents nearby? No. I wasn't an angry person, but I was a disciplined one, and the one thing I couldn't tolerate in other people was a lack of it. I only meant to shake some sense into him, to tell him clearly and unmistakably that he wouldn't get away with that shit while I was around, but then he turned, and I saw his face for the first time. And it was over. Done. One look at those winter-blue eyes and those delicate lips and I was finished. One glance at his lean, long body, and I was falling. Every part of me responded with heat and flush and wrenching want, like a hook had been fastened somewhere in my chest and was now giving an almighty tug, and the only thing to ease the ache would be to get closer, closer, closer. I'd never seen a boy so beautiful. Haughty as he was, overindulged and so obviously dissolute, he was the loveliest person, boy or girl, I'd ever seen. I still pinned him against the wall, though. And it was when I had him against the wall with my forearm on his throat and my body trapping his that he sealed his fate. As I was choking him, he looked at me with his whole world in his eyes.
