B's Review: The Golden Dynasty by Kristen Ashley

Circe Quinn goes to sleep at home and wakes up in a corral filled with women wearing sacrificial virgin attire - and she is one of them. She soon finds out that she’s not having a wild dream, she’s living a frightening nightmare where she’s been transported to a barren land populated by a primitive people and in short order, she’s installed very unwillingly on her white throne of horns as their Queen.

Dax Lahn is the king of Suh Tunak, The Horde of the nation of Korwahk and with one look at Circe, he knows she will be his bride and together they will start The Golden Dynasty of legend.

Circe and Lahn are separated by language, culture and the small fact she’s from a parallel universe and has no idea how she got there or how to get home. But facing challenge after challenge, Circe finds her footing as Queen of the brutal Korwahk Horde and wife to its King, then she makes friends then she finds herself falling in love with this primitive land, its people and especially their savage leader. 

My thoughts:
I would not call it spoiler when it happens int the first pages. See it as a warning.

No, wtf, NO! RAPE IS NEVER RIGHT. I do not give a fuck if it's their society. He brutally attacks and rapes her. And what I am supposed to read on and they will fall in love and she will change their society. Well do that, he still raped you.

How the fuck is this romance?

I wish there was a worse rating than 1. NO!

Also why is everyone comparing it to GoT. A scene which I also hated. No, nothing romantic with a raped 13 year old falling for her rapist. Pedophile rapist.  DNF.

Stay tuned in for next week, when I review book 3... ;)

Hihi, omg it made me so MAAAAAAAAD! I do not see the romance in rape. I do not care if she falls for him later, he still raped her. I do not give a F if that was their society.

I loved Rock Chick by the author but wow this one sounds so not good. I'm sorry it was like that.
