The harder the fall…

Ten years ago, Snowy Hollings betrayed the love of her life…
Or did she?
Blake Lorenz has finally broken the Hollings heiress but revenge doesn’t taste quite as sweet as he’d hoped. And as the murky depths of his past begin to come to light, the more he’s forced to realize that he may have made a grave mistake.

…the more brutal the redemption.

descriptionI am seriously discombobulated as F-CK right now. I mean, it says "DUET", right? That implies TWO books, right? So...what the actual f-ck was that ending?? I am legit SO confused! (lol) 


Stepping away from my confusion for a minute, there seems to be a pattern in my reading lately with duets where the second book never quite reaches the same greatness as book one. For 99% of this book, that wasn't the case. This book was good. It kept me hooked. The writing was outstanding. The plot was deliciou

So this was book two in the Savage Fall duet and considering book one totally smashed my walls down in terms of what I was comfortable with: meant for me there was a degree of trepidation going into this.
So this one was slightly milder in terms of content than its predecessor: I also enjoyed this slightly less.
In a way, Blake is now after the revelations at the end of book two trying in his very controlling fashion to somehow win back Snow's affections with limited success.

Alright, I'm going to be honest here ok? I finished reading this book a while back and my thoughts were kinda all over the place so I thought I'd give myself some time to think it through and perhaps read it again?
yea...No. Tried reading it a second time hoping it would perhaps change my views on the book. But NOPE!

I did not enjoy this book. hey, I'm all for a dark romance and all the raw gritty details that comes along with it but this book was a huge NO.

So King's Horses starts up where King's Men ended. We are getting both POV in this book although it is mainly Snowy whom we get to hear. However, when we do hear from Blake, it is a great insight into how and why he is doing what he is doing. Blake is not a bad guy; he is just a product of his past. His love and somewhat obsession for Snowy has turned him into a raving lunatic. Can Snowy and Blake find it in themselves to get over their past mistakes and make a future together? Or will they

In the second installment of the Lana Sky’s acclaimed duet series, the story dives into the mind of Blake as he tries, unsuccessfully, to win Snow’s affection. However, I will be lying if I didn’t say how much of a blowing disappointment this was for me. It is no secret the love I hold for Sky and her stories, but this one did not go over well with me. The plot, the writing and the characters were all well establishment expecting no less from Sky, but the romance was up in the air. It felt as th ...more

But what happens if you betray the one you loved the most. The one that battled all your demons for you and made you battle them?

King’s Horses by Lana Sky
This is the second instalment in the duet and if you have not read book one you are going to be very confused. So please read book one. Snowy has realised that she is a pawn in this cruel game. The hurt she feels and the betrayal by those around her pushes her to her limits. At times, she comes across as very immature and unstable. However, you still have some empathy for her and for what she has endured. Blake is trying to fix what he has broken. Can he prove to Snowy,

This was another great dark story by this author. It is book two of the Savage Falls duet. In order to understand what is going on and exactly who the characters are, you do need to read book one first. There is so much angst in the one; between Snowy and her two brothers, between Snowy and Blake, and between Blake and his sister. Snowy and Blake have so much chemistry, but there is also so much back-and-forth, push-and-pull with them that it can get frustrating at times. More secrets and twists ...more

So here we are with part two of the dark tale of revenge, revelation, and love. The story isn't as dark as the first one but still as entertaining. And the leading lady (Snowy) actually becomes a stronger opponent in the follow up story. She discovers what she had in her all along. You know sort of like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Although the story of Blake an Snowy comes to an end, the end has me wondering......... Is there a new story with Masha coming soon? If you want to know about how she ...more

Wow! What an ending to the duet. I loved seeing more of Blake in this part of the duet. I loved how Snowy and Blake both started opening up to each other and building the trust that had been damaged between them. Looking forward to seeing more of these characters in the future. Lana did an amazing job with this duet. It's full of pain, drama, twisted situations, family, and love.

While this book is milder than its predecessor, it is a dark, twisted romance that contains subject matter that may not be appropriate for some readers, including mentions of sexual abuse, child abuse, violence and mentions of eating disorders. Please take this into consideration before purchasing.

What the hell was this? I was so excited for the second book. I really saw the potential for their 'love story'. It was obvious from the first book that Brandt/Blake loved her, he was just fucked up. The second book could have been so good, but I am so disappointed. It was abrupt. I was waiting for this book :(

I didn't really want to finish this series, but I was curious (not in a good way) to see how the author would end her story. Tuns out it didn't get any better…
Also I don't get why it is a series, one book would have been enough.

“All the king’s horses and all the king’s men, Snow. No one can put you back together again. You’re broken. Beautifully broken.”

Cruelly robbed of the fairy tale romance they deserved to have, by power hungry parents that had their own evil plans to gain the upper hand, book one ended on a jaw dropping cliff hanger that had me desperate for book two. Continuing their story of reinvention and self discovery the plot thickens and not all is as it seems, be prepared to be thrown once again by the bi

King's Horses, Savage Fall Duet Book 2 by Lana Sky

Blake Lorenz spent the last ten years with one goal in mind, to take everything from the Hollings and to break Snowy. He accomplished both but it feels hollow to him. What he really wanted was the girl from their childhood, but he may have nearly killed her.

Snowy Hollings old life normally revolved around expensive couture fashion in bright colors or attending fashionable parties. Now, she finds them shallow and tiring. Snowy has changed and her

Not quite the fairy tale ending - but then again Humpty Dumpty was never put back together again either, so it was quite fitting

This is the second in the duet so if you have not read book one - Stop

Snowy uncovered so many secrets and betrayals in this closing episode. She knew she was a pawn but to really see with the blinders removed was a whole new type of pain. I still think she was a bit over dramatic at times and occasionally came across as immature. And yes *eye roll* she still jumps in w

I enjoyed reading this more than the first book because it gave Blake’s POV too. It helped put things in perspective because otherwise it would become too dark for my taste. The glimpses into his mind helped me come to terms with the darker bits of the story. It is well written, full of suspense and drama (lots of it) and conflicting book. Snowy is developing a backbone in this. They both are opening up to each other and their relationship is evolving and blossoming. But there’s still a lot of d ...more

Lana Sky continues to impress me with her dark sensual writing in King's Horses. This was deliberately cruel and raw keeping in mind the theme of the series. I simply adore her poetic and lyrical prose which beautify the sad and gory details.

I will warn you that this story has multiple triggers like abuse for sensitivie individuals. Snowy and Blake's story is coming to an conclusion. So secrets are getting spilled in every corner. And even more manipulations and power games are coming into play.

My heart bled reading King’s Horses. Lana Sky has this talent of shredding your soul and smashing your heart to bits with her heartbreakingly twisted books. This book was no different. Although King’s Horses is less twisted and dark as King’s Men, it is just as haunting.

Snowy endured so much by the hands of Blake in book one and I was desperately hoping he didn’t irrevocably break her and that she still had some fight in her. This book proved that. Although she is not the same shallow naive girl

Dark, cruel, twisted - full of emotional pain

It took me some time to gather my thoughts after finishing the conclusion to the duet and to write review. For me one of the songs of the band called Thirty Seconds To Mars titled Up In The Air describes perfectly the dynamic between the main characters.

Is this the end I feel?

All of the laws I've broken, loves that I've sacrificed

My emotions were chaotic and conflicting..I was happy and sad, excited anxious with peeks of fear always on alert as the unexpected twists kept getting more unexpected completely throwing me off kilter filled with rage and irritation wanting to throw my kindle but my desperation takes hold and reels me back in steeling myself for more of the brutally intense drama to come all while thinking to myself how could it possibly get any worse or more intense only to be shocked

Ahhh King’s Men!! What a ride that was!!

Oh Blake. Oh Snow. What tangled webs we weave. I’ll be honest after King’s Men I wasn’t sure how this story would get a HEA. Heck even 50% through King’s Men I didn’t know how it would be HEA! However fear not the story does end HEA as much as a story like this can.

Blake and Snowy are stuck trying to be the people they were before and ignore the damage that has been done to them through the years. Blake continues to show little glimpses of Brandt, keepin

After reading King’s Men, I was desperate, DESPERATE, to get my hands/ eyes on this. I have to say I was a little bit disappointed with this.

I knew getting into this that it would be dark and twisted and generally messed up. That’s why I love Lana’s books, however there was something off about this one for me.

The writing style was really great. I thought over the two books the characters had been developed well and had good motivations based off of their backstory. I also admit to st

~All the king’s horses and all the king’s men, Snow. No one can put you back together again. You’re broken. Beautifully broken.~

Whereas Brandt would be there to help pick up the pieces and put her back together, Blake just wants to break Snow Hollings and see her suffer. They say there is a fine line between love and hate and these swirling emotions are ever present as Blake wants to inflict his vengeance all while lusting after the submissively yielding socialite.

As much as I love the dark

Snowy and Blake are to die for! I absolutely Loved The Savage Fall duet! This story will break you over and over again, it will pull your feet out from under you and leave you completely raw! Savage is the perfect word to describe Snowy and Blake! What they have is so incredibly destructive, both are battling the past and their future!
