The King's Men (All for the Game #3)
Befriending the Foxes was inadvisable. Kissing one is unthinkable. Neil should know better than to get involved with anyone this close to the end, but Andrew's never been the easiest person to walk away fr ...more
GO NEIL! GO KEVIN! GO ANDREW! GO FOXES! Ahhh, with Kevin I feel like singing Ham's part in Dear Theodosia: "Look at my son! Pride is not the word I'm looking for!" (also with Neil tbh, words can't describe how proud I am of him).
I feel like a proud mom, is that weird? And I know I've said "proud" x1000 times in this short review, but I can't help it, THAT'S HOW I FEEL ABOUT MY FOXES. It is rare when an author makes me care so much about a whole bunch of fic ...more
The King's Men is one of the best books I've read all year, and maybe the best conclusion to a series ever - apart from Harry Potter. Nothing beats Harry Potter.
Honestly though, there are so many amazing series out there. However, only a few of them have an ending that's as amazing, or even more so, as the other books in a series. Loose ends a ...more

ANOTHER EDIT: You know how I'm always talking about how Andrew is my favourite character ever but I can never decently explain why
I found this on tumblr and it puts words down okay
Do you ever just hurt when you think about all the times Andrew must’ve taken beatings from his mother in Aaron’s stead? And how he almost killed a bunch of guys for being homophobic towards his cousin? How An...more
update: this series has given me a book hangover and I’m unable to read anything unless it’s related to this and I’m deeply disturbed by how far this obsession goes
[inhales deeply] AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
it’s fine everything’s fine I’m fine I’m just ignoring the fact that this series is over and distracting myself by crying
4.5 stars?? I don’t know??? this wh ...more
My mind is blown away.
There is a special kind of rush you get when you are having final book in series in your hands.
It gets even more special when that closure comes after 2 years of waiting.
But this kind of emotional satisfaction I am feeling right now you get only when book is everything you hoped to be and a thousand things more. The King's Men was definitely worth the wait.
Last sentence of The Raven King gave us pretty much a big hint where will the plot of this book go: Neil and his team ...more
i would die for this series, these characters and everything about it
first reread in 2018 lmao
this is still so good so damn goooooooood and so damn gaaaaaay and pls remind me who i was before i read this series bc i dont remember it in the slightest
anyway andrew and neil are the softest boyfriends and it's just facts
psa: this is the best andreil fic there is and if you haven't re ...more
How do you write a review for a book that so thoroughly ruined you? Don’t know? Me neither. Huh, we’ll just have to see where this goes.
Throughout the entire series, I’ve been wondering how I’m going to manage to live when I finish the last book. Well here I am now, crying with a serious book hangover and a black void swirling in my heart.
I miss my babies a ...more
HELP... NEED MORE...
I'm going into a rough book withdrawal. I don't think I'll get over it, like... ever...
This book will forever be my favourite thing in the world.

[5th read 09/07/2018] umm— nooo, I’m not obsessed *sneaks out to get a fox tattooed on forehead*
Wow. I just found Nora Sakavic's tumblr... how have I not looked for it sooner, idk... I have all the answers I needed. I can die in peace now 🙏🏻
Heart wrenchingly, agonizingly beautiful.
You won't know what it means to be happy and alive until you've read this series. Honest to god it's so fucking amazing.
Andrew freaking Minyard.
NEIL fucking JOSTEN.
Leave me be.
Don't mind me while I go and tattoo their names on my face.
But really tho.
(cries for days)
Nora Sakavic is officially one of my favourite authors ever. That's literally all I can say about this series.
I just spent all of Sunday rereading the first two books in the series so I could read the third, that I only recently realized had come out. I always get a little worried going into the end of a series, because sometimes the whole previous story gets ruined by choices made in the last book or episode or movie or whatever.
Well. Not the case here. I don't even know why I worried.
The second book left off on a really intense point, and t ...more
I could rant for pages about The Foxes and what Nora Sakavic did with these books. On of the things I appreciate most is how she was brave enough to take the triggers and topics that make people squeamish and address them head on. It's not for effect or to add some angst in. She shows how people live the best they ca ...more
"I didn't say anything then because I knew I'd look out for only me when the world went to hell. I don't want to be that person anymore.
I want to go back for you."
There's this, like, weird ache happening in my chest? And my eyes are like.... dripping and wet? AND HELP SOMEONE HELP I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGGGGSSS!!
NORA SAKAVIC WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME, YOU MONSTER?!
I just sent my brain to her room for not making me read this sooner.
I know I didn't seem too ecstatic in my revie ...more
Wow.....I don't even know what to say after finishing this series. I have started these books because Susan told me to, and by now we all know...when Susan tells me to do something I listen :P
She was right though, as usual. These books blew me away !! I can't thank her enough for this wonderful rec !! You are the best ;)
I don't really want to go into the storyline, because there are so many awesome reviews for these books alrea ...more
This series destroyed me in the best way possible.
I just love these characters so much and their character development. I could read hundreds of pages of them doing literally nothing. I just found Nora Sakavic's Tumblr with all the answers I needed. I can die in peace now.
FINALLY THE ROMANCE I WAS WAITING FOR! And it was so worth the wait, it was just beautiful.
(view spoiler)[I just adored Neil and Andrew relationship (if you would call that?) it was so much more than just romantic att ...more
According to GR, over 13,000 people have read this book.
Almost 10,000 of those readers rated the story 5 stars.
I was only about 7% in when I decided it was going to be full stars from me, too.
The ratings don’t lie.
This story was FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC!
THIS. SERIES. HAS. RUINED. ME. I haven't read a series in a long time that I was so emotionally invested like how I was with this one. I honestly wasn't expecting to like this story, let alone be so obsessed with it the way I am now. This series took me by storm, and I am glad to have ended my year (ehh, it's close enough to say that) with this series.
I loved how Sakavic wro ...more

I finally filmed and posted my youtube review if anyone wants to watch!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWC_b...
Ok before I start, I am known for putting spoilers in my reviews. THAT WILL NOT BE THE CASE IN THIS REVIEW. I want people to read this series so bad. Therefore, I want people to read this review and get excited and not get spoiled. ANY spoilers posted will ...more
The Raven King - 4.25 stars
The King's Men - 4.5 stars
Honestly, I thought the first two books of this series were lovable trash. They're not particularly well-written and the entire plot concept is kind of absurd. But this one somehow managed to get me to literally actually cry. I'm STILL kind of shocked that this made me cry.
The character work here has stepped up its game. Every side character feels so real and developed, even with very little pagetime. These characte ...more
WOW! What an amazing series. There is so much emotion in these books, but in such a subtle way that it packed even more of a punch.
Neil is still playing Exy with his team. But the team is pretty messed up at the moment. Secrets are revealed and almost no one seems to get along. Neil makes it his task to change this.
But Neil also still has a big target on his back. People want to kill him and he has to find a way ...more
After a nicely executed sobbing session and a cup of a tea with cardamom:
Writing this review doesn't mean I'm not crying still, I'm writing with a brain full of bad thoughts that I'm never going to find a book as WONDERFUL FANTASTIC MAGNIFICENT AND BEAUTIFUL as this. So I'll leave my condition to your imagination.
Headsup: This review -or a ...more
Redemption. Vindication. Triumph.
This was quite the impressive culmination of many a complicated thing. What starts out as young athletes in college barely being civil teammates, each with their own personal demons and struggles, slowly morph into being a cohesive unit, a family who is extremely tough, crazy brave, and loyal to end.
Always focusing on our damaged antihero Neil, he goes from a loner out of necessity to a leader which is no surprise to anyone but him. It was amazing to se ...more
📢 pas: do not finish this series and then immediately after watch The Book of Henry because you will be in S H A M B L E S.
i will never be okay after reading this. who was this unenlightened potato before this series? i don't know her anymore.
what i do know is that this book has put me into this weird book funk where you're just like pls, world, don't do me like this and let me be a lonely bitch for a while thanks.
BECAUSE IT'S OVER. and i'll probably have to rewrite this entire thing ...more

“There is no ‘this’. This is nothing.”
“And I am nothing,” Neil prompted. When Andrew gestured confirmation, Neil said, “And as you’ve always said, you want nothing.”
Andrew stared stone-faced back at him.”
“All eyes are on you. It’s time to show them what you’re made of. There’s no room for doubt, no room for second guesses, no room for error. This is your night. This is your game. This is your moment. Seize it with everything you’ve got. Pull out all the stops and lay it all on the line. Fight because you don’t know how to die quietly. Win because you don’t know how to lose. This king’s ruled long enough—it’s time to tear his castle down.”
