Forbidden. Powerful. Ruthless.

Micah the Unwilling, fae King of the Forgotten, can tame even the most violent of beasts. Forged on the battlefield, this iron-willed warrior considers his soldiers his family, and he will stop at nothing to reclaim their dispossessed land. Gearing for war with a sadistic enemy, he is disciplined and focused—until a feral beauty he encountered long ago wanders into his camp.

Viori de Aoibheall wields a terrifying ability to sing monsters to life. Having spent her childhood in a forest, raising herself and her frightening creations—the only friends she’s ever known—she’s ill prepared for the scarred royal and his fearsome brutality. Not to mention the ferocity of their connection and the carnality of his touch. But the real problem? Her brother is Micah’s greatest foe. And though the sensual king makes her burn, she must stop him, whatever the cost.

We met Viori in Heartless - Kaysar's long lost sister, and I was thrilled when I realised she was the heroin of Ruthless. And the enemies to lovers ordeal? Yes please! Arguablly one of the best tropes for a paranormal romance. I won't lie, I was slightly worried as the miscommunication trope slide in but it was written really well and I actually enjoyed the ride of miscommunication! This whole book was *chefs kiss*.

As a teenager Micah stumbled upon Viori while she was submerged in one of her deep sleeps and years later they cross paths again. Even in the first book I just knew Viori would be fiercely independent and she was exactly that - after raising and keeping herself alive, she is fierce and dangerous with a mountain of walls built around her - her actions portrayed a lot of her characters past trauma I think - and one of my favourite things was experiencing Viori coming out of her shell and accepting and exploring Micah and his adoration.

Ruthless was a brilliant addition to the Immortal Enemies series - it was energising, fun and packed with unhinged characters who are hard to resist. Gena Showalter has yet to write something I haven't love and this was no exception. At "The End" I felt happy, content and gooey over the latest happily ever after. If you like fast paced paranormal romance with the best banter and unique world building, you will love this series.
