So This Is Ever After
So This Is Ever After | F.T. Lukens
Carry On meets Arthurian legend in this funny, subversive young adult fantasy about what happens after the chosen one wins the kingdom and has to get married to keep itand to stay alive. Arek hadnt thought much about what would happen after he completed the prophecy that said he was destined to save the Kingdom of Ere from its evil ruler. So now that hes finally managed to (somewhat clumsily) behead the evil king (turns out magical swords yanked from bogs dont come pre-sharpened), he and his rag-tag group of quest companions are at a bit of a loss for what to do next. As a temporary safeguard, Areks best friend and mage, Matt, convinces him to assume the throne until the true heir can be rescued from her tower. Except that shes dead. Now Arek is stuck as king, a role that comes with a magical catch: choose a spouse by your eighteenth birthday, or wither away into nothing. With his eighteenth birthday only three months away, and only Matt in on the secret, Arek embarks on a desperate bid to find a spouse to save his lifestarting with his quest companions. But his attempts at wooing his friends go painfully and hilariously wronguntil he discovers that love might have been in front of him all along.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are so young and quirky, it made me giggle at how oblivious they were. Arek is a great King, but is complete unaware of it. It's a cute read if you're looking for something LGTBQ+.

Ok, so I didn't bail on Lore, it's just that I'm so much more excited for this one. My hubby came home from work last night and asked if I wanted to go to the bookstore, as if I would ever say no. I went thinking I'd grab The Daughter Of The Pirate King, but they didn't have it. I think it was @hannah-leeloo that had posted about getting this one a few weeks back. I've been wanting it since. Started it last night and very happy so far!

#gaymay Lots of queer rep that is just integrated into the story. Parts were funny and it had a good ending but mostly I found it boring. I listened to the audio and read ebook. I liked the author‘s pirate story and I really wanted to like this one more than I actually did. 😢

Mehso-so

This was kind of in between a pick & so-so for me. The plot was incredibly predictable & the chosen one's attitude could be a bit much.
Arek, the chosen one has his magic sword, has killed the evil king & taken his throne. Now he needs to soulbond to someone before he turns 18 or he fades away literally.

GondorGirl These covers are so freaking pretty. I need to pick up a copy of the new book, as I really enjoyed the other. 3mo
Branwen @GondorGirl I can't stop staring at it! And I didn't even realize until today that the back of the dust jacket is illustrated as well and just as pretty! 😍 3mo

On the one hand I am a massive sap, sniffling after a great ending…. On the other, I love a good Merlin-Arthur fanfic! Especially a successfully published one!

I think I‘m about to have a book hangover, thanks F.T. Lukens!

So This is Ever After is the story of what happens after you finish your adventure and defeat the big bad villain - or in this case an evil ruler who you beheaded.

I loved this slow burn trope of best friends to romance plot and the humor added in. There was plenty of action, side romance and lots of different LGBTQIA+ rep including bisexual, polyamorous, non-binary, and lesbian.

Nutmegnc Sounds delightful!! 6mo

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 316.
