Where do I start on this review.... This book is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have never read anything like it before and I loved every minute of it. I started reading it late at night and finished early morning because I could not put it down.

This is a story about a King who is killed and his children have to figure out who killed him. There are lots of secrets and lies and deception among the family and the house hold staff. Plus there is one character that is a psychic and what she

Death of the King opens the Majesty series with more drama and intrigue from author Jake Biondi. It follows the Chamberlain family and their actions as the head of the family, who is also the king, is found dead in his chambers.

I so did not foresee me loving this book. Talk about being brilliantly blindsided. For one, it is a bit historical, actually, more medieval with the castles and knights and royal intrigue.

Complicated and exciting story!

Mr Biondi has transported us to medieval times and given us a story of palace intrigue, odd relationships, and far too many complicated characters!

Brothers each in tangled relationships and it's hard to keep track of who everyone is involved with or scheming with! Certainly worthy of prime time soap operas!
