    One thought on “The Seven Year King”

    1. 3 starsOnce again, Kiki Hamilton, you've drawn me in for another fun fairy tale! This book was very interesting, and I was slightly curious in this search for the four treasures! Tiki and Rieker grow closer together (with some steamy moments! ;D ) and my heart ached for poor Dain. Now, while I'm a raging fan of Rieker and Tiki, I couldn't help but question the romantic aspect of one particular scene. (view spoiler)[ It's when Charles, Rieker's butler, is dead. Heart cut out, blood covering the h [...]

    2. Please tell me that Rieker is still with her!!!Okay so just finished BK 2 AND I NEED THIS NOW!!! And what is up with this "heartbreaking" nonsense. it better not involve Rieker!

    3. “THE SEVEN YEAR KING - Hamilton’s layered, complex worldbuilding creates a marvelous landscape of both London and the Otherworld. (Her) prose contains moments of pure, poetic beauty that ensnare the reader with their magic.” – Kirkus Reviews

    4. Fantastic book! Tales of Victorian England wrapped up with Faerie. Intrigue abounds. Very good series, and I hope there are more to come. Believable and sympathetic characters.

    5. This series is very ~meh~ for me, but I still get sucked in every time. People keep talking about the ridiculous name of the main character - Tiki - but, like, the author's name is Kiki? I have a feeling she'd love to meet Queen Victoria and proudly tell her how her nickname came to be.There was also a lot of plot in this one. Mostly in a good way, since I found the last book a little drawn out, but it gets a little annoying that there are 10,000 new elements introduced and only 6 resolved. Plus [...]

    6. "It’s up to you. Which do you choose: a child or a kingdom? " AAAARGH! I don't know whether to love Larkin or hate her. She's too complicated. Love all the scenes with Gestle and idk why. I can't wait for Tiki to trick and trap Donegal. Also, I can't wait to see more of Dain-William interaction! This book left me asking for more. Loved it!

    7. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.Quick & Dirty: A great faerie world filled with vivid imagery and a fantastic, detailed story.Opening Sentence: Firelight flickered from wall-mounted torches in the small chamber off the Great Hall as the Winter King and his court of UnSeelie advisors– Bearach, Sullivan, Cruinn and Scathach—gathered in a circle.The Review:Kiki Hamilton has always been one of my favorite authors. From reading The Faerie Ring, I was instantly hooked with her style of st [...]

    8. It still constantly amazes me how well Hamilton was able to immerse the land of mythical fey with 19th century London. In this 3rd installment of the Faerie Ring series, we get to see more of the Otherworld as Tiki spends more time there, having accepted her role in leading the Seelie Court. The novel starts off with a bang as 1) Dain has been captured at the end of The Torn Wing and possibly going to be sacrificed on Samhain, and 2) Johnny has been captured by the liche, aka hideous monster tha [...]

    9. Kiki Hamilton has always been one of my favorite authors. From reading The Faerie Ring, I was instantly hooked with her style of storytelling. With each book, she adds a level of darkness, slowly uncovering the truths behind the glamour. The Seven Year King is the anticipated third book of the series. Hamilton brings the evil and terrifying side of the UnSeelie Court to the forefront. I absolutely loved the attention between the two worlds, and you might also.Tiki is an enjoyable character. She [...]

    10. So I looked everywhere for this book as I saw the publication date to be variously May 14, May 21, and even September 2013. I finally saw it on bn avaiable for nook, but no such luck on - as a kindle user, I had to order the paperback copy of this book, which I haven't done in probably 3 years - that's how badly I wanted to read this! I just finished it, and all I can say is The Seven Year King is most definitely a "bridge" book that really only ties up the loose ends of The Torn Wing and margi [...]

    11. ***spoilers***Honestly, there were several things that bothered me about the plot for the 3rd book. There seemed to me an overemphasis on Tiki's beauty as a fey. I forgive revealing plot points to the reader pages and pages before Tiki figures them out, because I know in a similar situation, I wouldn't get it so quickly as I can being outside of the plot as an observer. That Clara was Larkin's daughter was hinted at throughout the beginning of the book and confirmed when Tiki saw the gourd with [...]

    12. I really do love this series, and I think that the author does a great job bringing something new to the overused concept of faeries. This book did not live up to the standard of the first two books though. It just felt like all of the obstacles the characters were faced with were easily solved. As soon as the obstacle appeared they magically came up with a solution that worked. It seemed way too convenient that they spent the majority of the book trying to come up with a solution and when the o [...]

    13. I really, really enjoyed the previous novels and thought they were fantastically written. It’s not that this book was badly written; it just felt very inadequate in comparison, felt as though it didn’t at all measure up. The pacing, for one, was really off to me. There were times in which numerous things were happening one after another. Soon after, though, there would be nothing for a stretch. I wish there had been a bit more consistency in this regard.I liked the book; it just had a few in [...]

    14. 4.5- Great story! I was so impressed with Ms. Hamilton's writing. Not only did it have a captivating plot with twists all throughout the book, likable characters, and an overall very imaginative storyline, but it was also very well written! 'The Seven Year king' picks up right where 'the torn wing' left off- Tiki has just been proclaimed Queen of the Seelie fairies, and she immedietly is thrust into the twisted politics of the two courts. Much of the story Tiki is constantly on the go- from resc [...]

    15. My feelings for this book are about as blasé as I felt for the second. After the magic of the first book, these subsequent books have been like trudging through all the necessary plot developments in order to reach the forgone conclusion. It's rather lack-luster. My only real complaints are about how stupid Tiki and Reiker keep going off on little quests which they've been warned against, while also ditching her guards. It annoyed me. Also aggravating was the insane amount of deus ex machina mo [...]

    16. Ga terlalu fokus sama judulnya sih, karena ceritanya banyak sekali cabangnya, ga fokus sama upaya nyelamatin Dain doang.Ada perburuan harta fairy, tentang liche, intrik-intrik di istana Seelie, para anggotanya, tentang Johny, dan tentu saja keluarga Tiki.Rame sih, tapi saking ramenya jadi berasa ke sana ke sini ceritanya hahaha ya gpp sih, secara Tiki sekarang udah bisa pergi dengan cara kilat heheheAkhirnya kekuatan Tiki keliatan, meskipun masih dikitDan Larkin hahaha aduh tetap ga bisa benci s [...]

    17. Okay, I can't give this book five stars because it ended on a cliffhanger. And there were a lot of times were I just wanted Tiki to step up and be Queen. I wanted her to stop being back and forth, back and forth. I wanted her to choose and be done with it. William still my favoriteI'm so glad that the author didn't start a love triangle. I want William and Tiki to be happy together. But the endingh, I can't wait for the fourth book. But overall it was a good book and I'll glad I started reading [...]

    18. I hesitate to say this because I lived the first two so much but I just wasn't that thrilled with this book. To be honest it felt like filled for me. Not a lot seemed to happen, although a lot of talking and planning was done. There was a lot if set up for the next book (which I will read even though this one was a let down) but overall not much substance to the book. Anyway like I said, I'll read the next book to see what happens but this book has taken away a great deal of my enthusiasm for th [...]

    19. It was an OK book. Maybe I've set my expectations too high from the first one, but it seems that her writing isn't as good anymore. I didn't get drawn into the book. It felt like a lot of stuff was left out and she was just telling me how they felt or what happened instead of really experiencing it. I was disappointed to find out that wasn't the last book in the series, who knows how long she plans to drag it out. There were also A LOT of mistakes made in printing that should have been caught.

    20. I feel like there are too many holes in the story and the dynamic between Tiki and Larkin gets annoying. What was with Tiki's cough/cold? There was never anything else explained about that.ybe in the next book. I am looking forward to the next book and a final "wrap up". Overall fun read.

    21. This series is just so awesome! I'm usually not too big a fan of faerie books (the fey just cause so much trouble) but I just love these characters and there's so much adventure and danger, and just the right amounts of romance and intrigue. So good. Seriously one of my favorite series but the wait between each book is just torture.

    22. Yay they killed the liche, it was clever to burn the liche's hair with the Ash together. Finally freed Dain! Wonder if Tiki will turn the throne over to Larkin or giver her daughter, Clara, backI bet she'll chose to give the throne over.

    23. Abandoned not by choice, the book was repeated every column and a half making the pages not match up when I swiped the page on my kindle ap. refunded my payment with relative ease even though it was after the return date for an ebook.

    24. This is the third book in the series and one of the best! Tiki and Rieker must make several trips to attempt to rescue others, Tiki is never where she really wants to be, and the suspense is unbearable at times. Loved it! THE FAERIE RING Series one of my favorite fantasy series.

    25. As always, I wasn't disappointed by this third book in the series. In fact, I had thought that there'll be a little something between Tiki and Dain but it wasn't explored on. Nevertheless, it still made me anxious cause I had thought that Rieker was gonna have his heartbroken

    26. Poor Tiki can't catch a break. Love to see her coming into her own & even getting a little BA! Ugh Larkin is so sneaky, that ending was a little painful. I adore Tiki & Rieker (Wills) together, they are too freaking cute; I loved all of their scenes :)Can't wait to see what happens next!

    27. This was a great book! I loved learning more about Dain, Larkin and Clara. Little Clara!!! Cliff hanger!! Tiki is becoming a stronger person then she thought she was and her powers are starting to show! I can't wait for the next book!
