“Would she still trust me…or at least learn to trust me?”
Throne of Truth is the second book in the Truth and Lies Duet. Penn and Elle are caught in a web of lies, and the only question on everyone’s mind is will they survive the truth when everything is finally revealed?
Throne of Truth picks up directly after Crown of Lies. Elle’s life is in danger, and despite her best effort to remain unstained from the deception of her foes, she is continuously brought right back into the chaos. With her trust in Penn and her desire to be with him swinging like a pendulum, she is continuously battling her emotions versus what she believes are the facts. Elle continues to act out of fear and will stop at nothing to find out the truth about Penn.
“Someone kind but ruthless. Supportive but possessive. Intelligent but quick tempered. He was an angel and monster in one.”
Penn was certain that he would be able to spend time with Elle and then leave her alone. Now that she is deeply embedded in his heart, he can’t seem to stay away. With time quickly slipping away, does he have what it takes to convince Elle that he is worthy of her love and affection or has too much damage already been done?
“Piece by piece, I revealed the man I’d always known existed.”
Told in dual POV, Throne of Truth offers an intriguing romance of two people from different worlds that are desperate to be together. With a blend of passion, romance, and action this mysterious romance will certainly keep you engaged with each twist of the plot! I found Penn to be a complex character whose history and life experiences made him a unique hero with multiple layers of intensity. Elle experiences a rather large transformation throughout the development of the series, and although she wasn’t my favorite heroine, I certainly felt that she and Penn made a perfect match. The secondary characters enhanced the plot, and I was especially fond of Larry. This duet is tender, sweet, passionate, mysterious, and with a dash of action and angst, it is sure to please contemporary romance fans.
Overall, I highly recommend Throne of Truth. The Truth and Lies Duet was certainly an intriguing read and Penn is certainly one hero you will want to meet!
