The price of freedom is always paid in blood.

The sovereigns of the Silver have awakened, but the Queen is a fractured shell of the woman Cam remembers. He hopes to put her back together by finding her son, the missing prince. At least, that’s what he tells his friends when he leaves for the Red.

Back in the Blue, Julia’s old tormentor Rufus is hounding her at every turn. Sh

Josie Jaffrey has created a wonderful world with her Solis Invicti series and the Sovereign spin-off, and with each book I read I find myself sucked in ever deeper. With The Blood Prince, I was both desperate for more and scared of saying goodbye. It’s a world I’ve come to love, one I’ve come to truly adore, and I was determined to savour the experience.

I was also desperate for answers, meaning I devoured The Blood Prince in the same way I have devoured all my Josie Jaffrey reads.

Through the journey, i’ve became even more attached to Julia’s, Lucas’ and Cam’s characters; cherishing their very different relationships than one another’s. But especially the one between Cam & Felix that was so particuliar and sensual, even though the love wasn’t developped the same way at all.

The Blood Prince is the third and final novel in the Sovereign series. If you didn't catch my review of The Gilded King, the first book in the series, you can read it here. I was completely enthralled by TGK and gladly volunteered to ride out the series. I love how the covers emerge with the story, changing from the tiniest creep of Red on TGK, into this bold, saturated beauty.

This book was action packed. Lots of Weepers. People become stronger and people fall in love. Emmy is very upset and acting out because she can’t find her son. We find her son and it is a very action packed ending. Worth the read!!

The last instalment in the series, The Blood Prince is ultimately a great conclusion and wrap up for the Sovereign series. It didn't feel too rushed and wasn't too slow which I really enjoyed and the climax of the story got me at the edge of my seat.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before but I really like the narrations that go back and forth between Julia and Cam. I'm just so intrigued by the entire world building that perhaps there should be more. Maybe the author could consider writing

The Blood Prince is the perfect end to this amazing series! The story of Cam and Julia continues and it gets really interesting. You’ll want to keep on reading but at the same time, you’ll not want it to get over.
The epilogue was absolutely beautiful and this is one of the definitely one of the best dystopian series!

Why I chose this book:
After The Gilded King and The Silver Queen, I couldn't pass up the conclusion! I am thrilled to be part of a blog tour (see my website); Sovereign is one of the most engrossing trilogies I've read in recent years! A review copy was provided in conjunction with this blog tour and in exchange for an honest review.

Review originally published on my blog, Living a Hundred Lives

I was so excited to get on with this because The Silver Queen ended with a question hanging that really hyped up the next book. Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed! It feels so good to be able to read and review two books that are both the last in a trilogy!

With the first two book being really good, I felt safe in reading The Blood Prince because I know it was really going to be an awesome reading experience.

This was a BLOODY AMAZING and MIND-BLOWING finale! I’m truly happy with how it ended, but sad that it’s over and I don’t know. I’m definitely feeling a book slump creeping in.

So, I binged The Silver Queen and The Blood Prince back to back and I’m glad I did cause there was no way I was going to just wait patiently after that insane cliffhanger. Not even a few pages into this book and I was already feeling uneasy about who could the Blood Prince be. I had my theories, but I kept switching back an

The Blood Prince picks up where The Silver Queen left off as the sovereigns search for their lost son begins. With scant detail about the lady who promised to deliver the Prince back to the Blue, Cameron vows not to rest until he finds him and implementing his plan to change the world upon his return. Heading back out into the Red with his partner Felix, Cameron soon discovers that things have changed in the short time he has been away and the forests are now overrun with deadly weepers as well ...more

Josie Jaffrey knows how to bring her series to an end with a huge crescendo with The Blood Prince! The author has kept the reader on their toes the entire series, including in the first series on which this one is based, and I for one was curious to see how she would conclude this one, and if she would "finish" it, and you will read for yourself to see how she left it.

The plot of this book is very well developed, having some nice twists and turns and finally revealing the secrets we have all be

Stunningly Brilliant!

Josie Jaffrey took an innovative approach to a paranormal, apocalyptic story and crafted it into a captivating look at political power and greed.

I loved this story from the first page of Ms. Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti series. Having finished both series, I am more captivated than ever. In Solis Invicti, a virus is set loose in the world, turning humans into “weepers”, forcing the Silver (vampires) to reveal themselves to protect the remaining healthy humans. E

This review is part of The Blood Prince's Blog Tour that began on February 14 and ends on March 9 (you can check out the complete review here: https://momentosdeataraxia.blogspot.c...).

The Blood Prince is the third book in this saga, so spoilers will be inevitable, but I will try not to advance much more than what's written in the synopsis.

So, we finish the second book with the return of Julia, who after venturing into the Red, reunites with Lucas and together they return to the Blue to save the

After the awakening of the Silver king and the return of the Silver queen, life in the Blue should have improved. However the queen is not the same woman she used to be. Desperate to find her son, so that he can get his friend and queen back, Cam is once again heading into the Red.

Julia’s life in the Blue isn’t any easier either than before the awakening of the king either. Rufus is still determined to make her his and is quite happy tormenting her

If you have followed me for a while, last year I reviewed the Solis Invicti series which is linked to this series, but is the series to read first. And I fell in love with Emmy and Sol.

Firstly I love Josie's descriptive writing, the writing is well structured as always, I cannot critique Josie's skills. Josie Includes other languages, different backgrounds and sexuality.
Josie is very tasteful throughout her books, romance, action and suspense is present, however this series has been a struggle f

This is the third book in Josie’s Sovereign series and it can not be read as a stand-alone novel. I once again will say, if you are looking for a more adult vampire novel but not one that turns into a smutty romance…this is the one for you, the entire series is actually!

This book was the last book in the series and it really contained everything we needed. Passion, thrill and lots of gold and silver (Insider joke).

All my favorite characters got a part and they got stronger and stronger in this book. I loved how the development made me love characters I hated before and the other way around. That was really good story telling and character development! Also in this book were a lot more twists and turns than in the past two and I loved how it surprised me over an

Well, it's done. At the end, I want to punch Emmy in the face. That hasn't changed.

I feel like I've been in the world and visited it for so long. It's a comfortable place. Not the Blue, but the world of the Silver. Speaking of colors. I really liked when the story took us into the Red. The Blue was so lackluster, so confined. Jaffrey did a great job making me hate the status quo throughout all of her stories.

In this last book in the series, the Silver might have awakened but the Queen is a shell of who she was and Cam is determined t fix her by finding her missing son when he leaves for the Red. Rufus torments Julia but she has a plan to bring the Nobles to their knees using blood.

I love a series that when it closes all questions are answered and there isn’t any doubts as to what’s happened. Is there room for another book in the series, yes but it’ll be different characters stories; I feel like this book gave us everything we could possibly ask for!

I'm unhappy.  Not with the book.  Not with the author (OK, maybe a little bit here - she messed with Sol and Emmy's HEA).

No.  I'm unhappy, because a series that I have really and truly loved, is coming to an end. So, my enjoyment of this final chapter was bitter sweet really.

As always, the writing is excellent and pulls the reader along for a bumpy ride.  I didn't like some of the choices that our protagonists made, but only because I was invested in a good outcome for everyone.  I can't tell yo

The Blood Prince is the thrilling conclusion to the Sovereign trilogy that starts with The Gilded King.

This one follows an expanded cast of characters as their world changes once again. The line between the red and the blue is starting to blur.

As I was reading, I wanted to know the fate of the characters I had grown attached to over the previous two books. But at the same time I didn’t want it to end because of the qu

For my full review:

"''...Why Don't we write the ending instead, about a girl who wants to save her people, and a knight who'll defy his King do what's right. We could make that our fairytale. We could make it mean something, Lucas'"

This is a fantastic conclusion to the series! But, at the same time, I still want more from these characters. Josie Jaffrey has left the world open for another series —maybe just my wishful thinking.

Incredibly original and so good you can’t stop reading

The Sovereign series is so emotionally provocative and well written that they embody the true purpose of fiction: to take the reader to a new world and immerse them in it. Jaffrey’s style is refreshing and addictive. This series left me head over heels for the main characters, and now that’s I’ve finished all three books, I can’t help but want to start them over from the beginning just to remain a part of the world Jaffrey created.

The third and final book in the Sovereign series has not disappointed. Once again, from the very first page, I was hooked into this vampire dystopian and following my favourite characters. The writing is excellent throughout the entire novel. It’s filled with action, romance, character development that is so true to real life. A wonderfully satisfying end to the series.

Absolutely loved this book - couldn’t put it down as I had to find out how the trilogy ended! It was finished neatly with no loose ends (that I can think of). I would recommend this trilogy to any fantasy lovers and I can’t wait to read the prequel series to explore this universe further.

I have always written stories, but it wasn't until I started the first book in the Solis Invicti series in 2014 that I really became obsessed with writing. I love to read, particularly where the escapism of the story is enhanced with an element of fantasy or science fiction. For me, writing is simply an extension of that journey, but I get to decide what happens next (though it's amazing how often ...more
