“Enthralling and drop dead gasp-worthy.“
– CD Reiss, New York Times Bestselling Author
American King, the stunning conclusion to The New Camelot Trilogy by Sierra Simone is available NOW!!
They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.
I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.
And I will survive this.
Long live the king.
When I was twenty-two, I met a prince. He seemed to be the exact opposite of everything I was—loud where I was quiet, smiling where I frowned, careless where I was careful, careful, careful. Embry joined the Army because Vivienne Moore wanted her son to craft the perfect politician’s resume. I joined because it seemed like the place to continue my never-ending quest for honor; because becoming an officer in the Army had a certain cachet in my neighborhood; because I wanted to somehow cosmically return the favor for my college scholarship; because the structure and rigid hierarchy of military life appealed to me.
Most importantly, I joined because I knew Carpathia was the most dangerous place in the world at the time, and I felt needed there in a way I can’t describe. It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it. I knew that I was supposed to be there in the same way I knew that God was real or that I was bisexual. It was a fact, even if it couldn’t be seen.
And after all that, then I see this lieutenant refuse to break up a fight? When we were there on the brink of war and responsible for safekeeping innocents nearby? No. I wasn’t an angry person, but I was a disciplined one, and the one thing I couldn’t tolerate in other people was a lack of it.
I only meant to shake some sense into him, to tell him clearly and unmistakably that he wouldn’t get away with that shit while I was around, but then he turned, and I saw his face for the first time.
And it was over.
One look at those winter-blue eyes and those delicate lips and I was finished. One glance at his lean, long body, and I was falling. Every part of me responded with heat and flush and wrenching want, like a hook had been fastened somewhere in my chest and was now giving an almighty tug, and the only thing to ease the ache would be to get closer, closer, closer.
I’d never seen a boy so beautiful. Haughty as he was, overindulged and so obviously dissolute, he was the loveliest person, boy or girl, I’d ever seen.
I still pinned him against the wall, though. And it was when I had him against the wall with my forearm on his throat and my body trapping his that he sealed his fate. As I was choking him, he looked at me with his whole world in his eyes.

My Book Review
“I pulled a sword from a stone when I was twelve years old.”
Ash has been this strong, powerful, mysterious soul that had intrigued me so much I could not wait to get my grabby hands on this book! I had to know his part of the story. Ash’s point of view is a roller coaster and seeing how his character evolved from being an abandoned young boy to becoming President is just phenomenal in itself. I know this story is fiction, but the New Camelot trilogy is so much more!
“I want to know my live wasn’t in vain.”
Throughout reading this series and especially during American King, I kept wanting to choose Greer & Ash, Ash & Embry, Embry & Greer BUT Sierra just makes you fall in love with this THREE that there is no jealousy no hard wishes on any of this tri – that you want their relationship to flourish and have that Happily Ever After.
This series is so magical spinning from King Arthur’s legend and being a HOT and STEAMY modern love story, there just is NOT anything else like it (Kinky King Arthur story come to life)! I hope that you take the time with Ash in this book, don’t rush it absorb the poetic words and stay with this book. My emotions are still all over the place form this book and I can’t wait for the audiobook to experience it all over again!
Sierra Simone is a FANTASTIC AMAZING writer! I can’t get enough of her books and they are ALWAYS steamy, delicious, with the heaviest book hangover you can imagine! After reading American King I really should start reading my next book commitment, but it feels like cheating on Greer, Ash, & Embry that I don’t want to leave this world right now.
Long live the KING!
