The King Trilogy Book One
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
“I am the man who can find anything or anyone. For a price. And my price is you.”
When Mia Turner’s brother goes missing in Mexico, while on an archaeological dig, she believes that life couldn’t get much worse. But when she’s blocked at every turn from finding answers, by both local and U.S. authorities, she must turn to a man she swears is the devil.
Others might be fooled by his private jet, fine tailored suits, and disarming smile, but Mia knows something dark, sinister, and unnatural lurks behind those penetrating, pale-gray eyes. And the more she learns, the more she realizes she may never be free again.
King’s is her latest offering and the first installment of The King Trilogy. Pamfiloff has quickly become one of my favorite authors and this novel is a prime example as to why. Her sharp wit, flawless writing style, and well-rounded characters kept me turning the page and coming back for more. What a fantastic opener to an already promising new series.
Okay first things first:
Mia, our herione— She was a strong character who, in the light of her brother’s abduction, was forced into uncertain situations beyond her control. The author did a wonderful job keeping me frustrated right along with her. Not knowing where her brother was or how to save him made me antsy. Furthermore, Mia was more than capable of holding her own against men who tried to use their power as an intimidation tactic to get her to submit. I liked that she wasn't sheepish and didn't shy away from danger. She continued to run head-on into it, in the hopes of getting her little brother back. She’s a great leading lady and I’m looking forward to watching her arc.
King, our leading man- Is that his first name or last? It’s anyone’s guess. He’s eccentric and a little creepy, but in a smoldering, intriguing sort of way. The mystery of who he is exactly, kept me on the edge of my seat.
Is he evil? Maybe.
Sexy? Hell yes!
The author gives just enough information to keep the reader guessing, which in my opinion, made the character beyond awesome. As such, I won’t go into detail about him either. You’re just going to have to buy the book to see for yourself.
You like your knee caps, dontcha?
