Sorrows Queen by Ashleigh Giannoccaro & Murphy Wallace is the final book in the Cavalieri Della Morte series! I must say I was a little upset that this book and Inexorable switched places, I still feel that Arthur’s book should have been the final book, it doesn’t make sense for the leader of the Cavalieri to not close out the series. But, either way, now we have Tristan and Sophie’s story. This one is a little different from the rest of the series. Once you read it, you’ll understand why. Told in dual POV Sorrow’s Queen can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading them in order. Although they are separate stories, they are all interconnected.
“She has walked into my heart like she has always belonged there, taken down the walls and set my soul on fire just by taking a single kiss from me.”
Tristan Sorrow, another one of Arthur Calthorpe’s loyal assassins is sent on what he thinks will be an easy job, go pick up Marcus King’s young fiance.
But once Sorrow meets the young bride to be, he knows this job will be anything but easy. Sophie is being used as a pawn. Her parents promised her to a man that they knew would surely ruin her, all in the hopes of raising their social status.
“I bleed emotions I didn’t know were inside me, letting them crawl into the small space between us and glue our jagged edges together.”
When things don’t go quite as Sorrow planned and he’s forced to spend a whole lot more time with Sophie then he had originally thought, feelings and emotions that he’s never felt before are caught in the mix until Sorrow is left with a choice to make.
A choice that could change everything.
Keep the mob kings betrothed and surely end up dying along with her, or turn over the girl he’s fallen in love with to a man who will ruin her.
Either way, it’s a lose-lose decision but one that has to be made…
“The universe just showed me love and grief all in the same moment. As I celebrate the love I feel for Sophie I already begin mourning the inevitable loss of it too. She doesn’t understand it yet, but we will both end up dying for this love.”
I really HATE having to say this but this was my least favored book in this series and honestly, if I hadn’t already read every single book in this series and wanted to see it through, I probably would not have finished it and that is a rarity for me.
Sorrow’s Queen had the makeup of being a fantastic read, but the storyline fell pretty short. There just wasn’t enough character depth, nor depth to the story period. It all just felt so rushed. There really wasn’t even a dialogue, besides their thoughts, that drew you in between the main characters which left me reading characters I just could not connect with at all, unfortunately.
Another downfall for me was, having read the rest of this series, the men of the Cavalieri are not good guys BUT, usually the things they do are to HELP the innocent and defenseless, so kidnapping a GIRL who is not even 18 years old to turn her over so she can marry a monster that she doesn’t want to be with? Yeaaa that just doesn’t make ANY sense to me.
I was considering less than 3 stars but after reading the ending, that most definitely helped raise my rating. Some of it I had predicted, but the end… I did not predict that. So because of the shock value, I gave this one 3 stars.
I’m not familiar with either of these authors and I feel absolutely horrible, I usually don’t leave bad reviews, I just choose not to review period but I’ve reviewed this whole series and I couldn’t just not review after I signed up. I apologize to the authors and I’m hoping that maybe this one was just a fluke and I will still check their other work out one day.
All in all, I would still recommend reading the Cavalieri Della Morte series, this one just fell flat for me.
“When she’s near, the sadness lifts. It’s as if she’s the sun burning away the mist of my sorrows.”
