Cruel War: Gilded Sovereign



I hate her. I want Dahlia to pay. Tynewood is my town, and she doesn’t belong here. While rage fuels me, my blood burns with desire.⁣⁣
I want vengeance, and I’ll get it.⁣⁣
No. Matter. What.⁣⁣
We’re on opposite sides of the battlefield — a poised flower, a raging warrior, and a mountain of secrets between us.⁣⁣
I knew he was bad news the moment I laid eyes on him. Anger and lust swirl together when he looks at me, but I don’t know why. War has commenced, and as secrets unfold, it looks like the battle has only just begun. He wants to hurt me. He loves to see me cry.⁣⁣
What Ares Lancaster doesn’t realize is, I’m not afraid of the darkness inside him.⁣⁣
Lies. Revenge. Bloodshed.⁣⁣
When war comes to a head, nobody is safe from the destruction it leaves in its wake.⁣⁣

My Review: 4 stars

Ares is out for revenge. His mother is dead and someone needs to pay for it. Being part of the Gilded Sovereign, a secret organization made up of rich and powerful men, has its advantages and its disadvantages and Ares is going to use it to his advantage. To take down the family that took his mother away.

Dahlia has no idea but she is about to encounter someone who wants to take her down for the sins of her father. After moving to the town her father grew up in to live with her grandmother after his death, Dahlia didn’t know the storm that she was moving into. Her best friend Rukaiya and her father moved too, letting Dahlia know she wasn’t alone.

“This time it’s not just a job, it’s war. A cruel war.” 

Ares is ready to go to war to avenge his mothers death. Even if it means going to war with an innocent girl.

But what happens when Ares learns the truth? What happens when everything he things he knows changes? What happens when Dahlia worms her way into his heart?

Will he chose family or Dahlia?

This is a great enemies to lovers story. I love stories about secret societies and this one did not disappoint. There was hate and love. Danger and comfort. Right and wrong.

I watched Ares grow though-out this book, from a boy to a man. I think the story flowed well, did not seem too rushed.

I am now ready for the next one. I need to know Etienne’s story.
