    ARC provided by Macmillan in exchange for an honest review. ?I?ve made a mistake. It started with a prince, as most stories do. Once I felt the thrum of his heart beneath my fingers, I couldn?t forget it.? You all, I buddy read this with FOUR of my closest book friend...

    I HAVE A HEART for every year I?ve been alive. There are seventeen hidden in the sand of my bedroom. Every so often, I claw through the shingle, just to check they?re still there. Buried deep and bloody. I count each of them, so I can be sure none were stolen in the night. It?...

    Meet our two main characters-- Lira: In one move, I plunge my fist into the prince?s chest and pull out his heart. Elian: Technically, I?m a murderer, but I like to think that?s one of my better qualities. That should give you a sense of what to expect. To Kill a Kingdom is ...

    Dark, seductive and oh so beautiful. Dark as a stormy night. Seductive as the call of a siren. Beautiful like the bluest sea. I marvel at how wonderful most of the 2018 YA releases have been. Even though the time I dedicate to reading is far less than what my heart desires (thank...

    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 ...

    Everything about this book was a salty swashbuckling GLORY and I loved it. I'm alllll here for pirates and sirens and (dark) Little Mermaid retellings, and this just delivered omg. Plus it was super funny, and if there's something my dark little heart beats faster for: it's people who ...

    A bewitchingly dark retelling of The Little Mermaid. In which both the siren princess and human prince want to cut each other?s throats if that?s the last thing they do. Lovely. My newfound love of dark fairytale retellings?caused by Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hoo...

    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 he...

    I am in shock. Could this be real? Could this really be my first five-star read - one that's not a children's book - of 2018? Because after a string of dnf's, I honestly thought this day would never come. And yet, here I am, completely head over heels over To Kill a Kingdom by Alexa...

    All I'm gonna say is that we NEED more YA fantasies on sirens like this one because reading Elian & Lira's story was way more interesting than I thought it would be?? Like I'm genuinely so happy because this is a dream come true?? I'm not a big fan of pirates but I love mermaids/...

    remember when i said this book was good?? well it is, but you know what, the more i think about it, the more i've realized that the ending was anticlimatic as fuck and Lira and Elian's relationship can choke on balls the size of my pEn!!!! i guess i really hyped this up and ended up...

    This book was so much fun! First, you have a wicked siren, who rips out a princes heart each year for her birthday! With her bare freaking hands! I loved Lira! Then we meet Prince Elian, who isn?t just your normal boring prince, he?s pretty much a pirate! He had awesome integrit...

    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 comp...

    That was absolutely brilliant. I'll read anything that has even a hint of a retelling, but this is probably one of the best I've ever found... it's what I never knew I wanted The Little Mermaid to become! Lira's a siren princess whose ruthless Sea Queen mother teaches her to steal p...
