To Kill a Kingdom Reviews
This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018 but for some reason I still went in with some doubts, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised -for the most part-.
If I could sum this up in one word it’d be - fun. That’s it, it was a fun and engaging read that had its ups as well as downs.
It would’ve also been a sold 4-star read had it not been for the unnecessary, far fetched romance that completely ruined the entire narrative for me.
Starting off with what I liked:
I haven't binged a book in what seems like forever so I'm literally jumping in joy for how amazing it made me feel. To Kill a Kingdom is dubbed as a retelling of The Little Mermaid with a twist and you can bet your ass that I didn't need to know anything else. The writing was very compelling yet easy to read. I easily fell for the morally grey characters and absolutely loved their banters. It's packed with adventure and action. It had just the right touch of swoon-worthy romance. I shed many tea ...more
Can I afford to add another book to my ever growing to-be read pile?
Am I going to add this awesome book that seems to feature not only a siren but also a handsome pirate prince?
this is my first proper review in forever yikes
I am screaming into the void right now bc lately I’ve only been able to compulsively reread old favs and when I don’t I spend 16 years on A SINGLE BOOK
But damn, this book was so bingeable I literally couldn’t stop (this is my form of apologizing to myself for staying up till 2am reading and ruining the next day)
Just to tell you how much I loved this book, halfway through I stopped reading so I could make an aesthetic board bc someone gotta

ALL OF THE STARS!
Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
"Some people burn so brightly, it’s impossible to put the flames out.”
GUYS. This was EVERYTHING! I mean, I went in with pretty high expectations, when I heard it was a re-telling of The Little Mermaid I was like okay I want to read this, I need this in my life. Normally when I go in with some form of expectations I’m pretty let down, but this honestly exceeded anything I could o ...more
Let me say, first and foremost, that I am such a total sucker for books revolving around the ocean, whether it involves pirates, mermaids, sirens, sea creatures, or any mix of those things. When I first heard about this story of a vicious siren chasing down a pirate prince who slays her kind, it skyrocketed to the top of my list of most anticipated releases for 2018. I had every gut feeling in the world that I was going to positively adore this novel, and as you’ll see in my review, I was not di ...more
Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.
I am just sitting here in shock and full of feels and alskfjal;skdjfa;lksjf GO ORDER THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW. How am I supposed to write a coherent review? Gah!
So if you haven't seen the description, this is somewhat of a little mermaid retelling, except there are lots of creatives spins that pull from other folklore as well! (For example, Midas ;))
Lira is a siren known as the 'Prince's Bane' - and she's infamous for killing princes. Yep, that's what she does. ...more
✨ You can now find my full review here! ✨
I finished reading this very hyped book—and I wasn’t crippled by disappointment? To quote May: “omg, lily liking a popular book?? is the world still spinning??” It may have stopped for a second, or two.
But, in all seriousness, To Kill a Kingdom is brilliant.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not perfect by all means; in fact, I found the initial chapters that introduce us to the world of sirens, mermaids, and the Sea, as well as the world above water with its vario ...more
