TITLE: The Devils Crown
SERIES: Part #One
AUTHOR: Monica James
GENRE: Mafia | Romance
PUBLICATION: July 21st, 2020
**All The Pretty Things Trilogy Spin-Off**

I was feared.

But all of that changed when the impossible happened—I fell in love. Only those feelings weren’t reciprocated, because who could love a monster like me?

My empire crumbled. People died. I went from being a victorious leader to lurking in the shadows, planning revenge on my half-brother who now reigns in my place.

An orphanage is where I find sanctuary, but when she walks into my world and evokes a yearning I thought long dead, my demons are awakened and want what they can’t have—her. Sooner or later, I knew I’d need to feed the darkness inside me.

Mayhem, power, and control course through my veins. I will use them to regain my crown, my throne, and then claim her, despite what solemn vows she might’ve made.

I will break them…and her.

Is part one, and is an all the pretty things trilogy spin-off

WOW!! This lulled me into a false sense of security, thinking the story was going to go one way when BAM out of nowhere like I stung mullet I sat there with my mouth wide open, twists and turns had my stomach all twisted up, blind sided more times than I can count.

NO WORDS!! It's these types of books which I chase, the unexpected, unputdownable, where the outside world ceases to exist, I'm utterly in love with this book!!

LOVED every minute of 'The Devil's Crown'. It was easy to get into and well written. The plot was intricate, and the pace moved along perfectly. There was angst. There was drama. There was grit. There was a bit of darkness, and to top it all off there were a few smokin' hot sex scenes.
This book ticked all my boxes.

I was in two minds over Alek our dark hero, he was a walking contradiction, we get this fallen from grace scary motherf#cker who ruled with an iron fist, he used to be King of the Russian Mafia, and now we see him clawing his way back up to the top.


Delve deeper into his character and we saw a much softer side emerge, to weigh it up he kind of got under my skin, he wasn't all bad. He had so many hidden layers, a devil siting on one shoulder and an angel on the next, he lived in both worlds.
And our heroine, god she came at me out of nowhere, so unexpected, you connect with her character so much, you root for her, you cry for her, you love her. I don't want to divulge too much about her because I don't want to wreck it for you guys that'll read this after me. Just go in blind, don't read reviews incase some spoilers are divulged, I promise you that like me you'll love this book..


  1. I love stories that give me the unexpected. I'm going to have to add this author's books to my TBR.

    Fantastic review, as always, Kat! ❤️
