Bound to a man she hates more than she ever thought possible...
Everything Morgan Pendragon knows and loves is gone as she wakes in the dangerous court of the Siabra. The man she was falling in love with is dead, and in his place is a man she barely knows. Surrounded by liars and knives in the dark, all Morgan wants to do is run the other way but Kairos Draven is determined to keep her by his side.

★★★★★ "I was absolutely hooked by this fast-paced, action-packed book in a way that I haven't been hooked by a fantasy romance since I read ACOTAR. It was stunning." - Abi, Goodreads Reviewer
★★★★★ "I WASN'T PREPARED FOR IT TO BE THIS GOOD! I really enjoyed the first book; however, this one--THIS ONE RIGHT HERE... I found myself holding my breath, gasping in disbelief, and getting goosebumps throughout the trials." - The Quiet Fool
★★★★★ "Give me sassy banter and a mysterious morally grey MC with a hidden love agenda any day" - Mariana, NetGalley Reviewer
★★★★★ "This book is even better than the first! This series is incredible! It's emotionally charged ... yes I snot bubble cried a few times because man does Briar Boleyn know how to write emotive scenes that grip you in the guts." - SJ's Bad Bitch Books
★★★★★ "I re-read it after finishing it just for the pleasure of it. I cannot let it go. It's one of those!" - Colette, NetGalley Reviewer
★★★★★ "Briar Boleyn has definitely captured my attention with this series! While I enjoyed reading Queen of Roses, I absolutely loved Court of Claws. It was giving me all the ACOTAR feelings. I haven't found another book that emulated ACOTAR quite so well while still keeping me guessing with the interesting twists." - Samantha, NetGalley Reviewer
★★★★★ "Things got wild in this book! More friends, more drama, more enemies, more losses, more surprises!" - The Dragon Den Book Blog
★★★★★ "The second book was so much better than the first! Not saying the first installment of this series wasn't good because I gave it 5/5 stars too but the way the 2nd book was written and the spicy scenes between Draven and Morgan were just chef's kiss to the storyline that was already started!" - Melisha, NetGalley Reviewer
★★★★★ "It's always worrying going into the second book in a series that it won't live up to the first. I adored the first book in this series but I had no reason to worry. It doesn't just live up to expectations, it exceeds them. Everything I loved about the first book, the second book expands on it and does it better. [...] I highly recommend it for fans of romantasy and books like ACOTAR. This has easily become one of my favourite book series (and I don't have too many), that I know I will go back and reread. I don't understand how more people aren't talking about this series!" - The Brit Girl's Bookshelf

We pick up right where book 1 left off.
Morgan (the FMC) wakes up hurt - physically and emotionally - and feeling a little vulnerable. Not only does Draven (the MMC) have some explaining to do, but he's also brought her home to meet the family. She's less than pleased, because oh - she also has to pretend to be his paramour while he fights for the crown. Did he leave some things out? Yes, he left some things out.
I really liked Draven's kingdom, as the court/castle/kingdom has been imagined differently than most other Romantasy-type books that have courts and castles. It's also a court where the citizens aren't afraid to sharpen their claws and the fights are hot! hot! hot! (if you read the books, I guarantee you'd have a good chuckle at that line).
There's also a lot of new secondary characters introduced in the book, and they're just delightful. Like big ol' kitty cats you can ride into battle (should you choose to do so) and also bears that I am confident know their way around a kitchen better than I do.
✨ He fell first ❤️
✨ Slow burn romance
✨ Bonded mates 💞
✨ Found family
✨ Fae magic
The book ends in an amazing cliffhanger, where Morgan makes a big decision. I can't wait to read book 3 to see if it comes back to bite her in the ass or will she live happily ever after.
