“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.

OHMYGOD!!! I am so emotional and wrought rn. I don’t think I can describe properly what all I feel for this book. The reason for that is that reading this story was such a transcendental experience. I honestly feel that this series, the entire story of Ash, Greer and Embry is etched onto my soul.
I know I over exaggerate stuff but with The New Camelot Trilogy, I honestly think no amount of words can ever be enough because stories like these aren’t meant to be just talked about, they are meant to be felt and experienced and then remembered over and over again.
The love Ash, Embry and Greer share is once in a lifetime kind of love and I absolutely fucking ADORE Sierra Simone for doing their story the justice it truly deserved. My heart for these characters because they are such pure souls that deserve all the love and happiness and I both love and hate that their journey was full of torment.
I am just going to try to move on from this epic love saga though I’ll be lying if I said I’ll ever be over it. I am forever changed and man, I am absolutely fucking elated about that.
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.
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.
