Maybe 3.5, but rounding just for Dray.

I like this series. It manages to do post-apocalyptic in a way that isn't too overblown or clichéd. I mean, it sort of is a bit Mad Max clichéd, but I like the way there are the different clans and areas and find the world building works well.

Worth continues to be a (mostly) awesome character. I do love how kick ass she is and how tough, but sometimes it got a bit tiresome and repetitive. It's like every single person thinks she's the most amazing thing ever

I have so enjoyed this series so far. But when I read the Cities, things jumped up for me. Everything was stepped up.

Worth is such a great character, I enjoyed her immensely before. But it seems like she stepped up more so. Add in that I have been waiting for something to happen and it finally does!! Yes!!! I do not want to give anything away, but just to say that this is so worth the read. So much happens with the plot, relationship wise, and just everything is stepped up.

I know I am not givi
The sad thing about this series is that it started out at a ratio of 80% story, 20% sex in book 1. Then book 2 went 50/50, with a dash of torture porn in Worth's flashbacks. Then in book 3, we get 20% story, 80% sex... It basically just becomes (very repetitive) porn.

And then it doesn't even have a real ending. Is this the end of the series? Because... really?

It also doesn't really work as a reverse harem, because Dray gets a lot of singular focus, so he's reasonably well developed and I like hi

This was probably my favorite of the series yet. Not only did the focus, the savagery and the emotional complexity all hit a crescendo that maximized the potential of both the characters and the story arc, but Dray. Oh man, oh man, did the vulnerability and viciousness all harmonize with those two, but the writing quality seemed to flourish during this installment due to a connection Ms Knight seemed to have with Worth and Dray working together. All in all, an outstanding showing from the author ...more

Read With The Lost

It was a tad frustrating that I had to read both the companion series and this series together to keep from jumping ahead in content with these installments, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I’ll be looking forward to the final one!

Dam dam dam. the blood lust is still there and that ending. I must read the last one now. A big battle is coming and you know it's going to be good. I love Piper and can't wait to see more of her. Dray is just great. This is one of these series which surprises you and keeps on going. I can't wait to see the city fall. ...more

Holy freaking sands below. I’m damned near speechless. This book was everything I wanted it to be. It was justice and revenge and savagery and love. I’m not going to give any spoilers, but when Worth reads a certain letter from a certain someone I sobbed like a baby the entire time.

Worth has quickly become my favorite character, possibly ever, and I have a huge girl crush on her. As with all the Champion books, K.A. Knight pulls no punches, and Worth takes out her enemies in the most satisfying

The Cities is the third book in the Their Champion series by K.A Knight.

The charters, plot, emotions, laughter, adventure and more are once again on point. You’ll be drawn into Worth’s story quickly and be wanting more with each turn of the page.

As per each of the other books in this series The Cities is definitely another fabulous book and an overall series which I highly recommend.

“I’m Worth,” I reply.
“Berserker Queen,” Bern adds. “The Champion of the Wastes,” Henry inserts.
“Soulmate!” Dray interjects with a smirk, and I roll my eyes.
“Or just Worth, ignore them.” “More like pain in the ass,” Evan mumbles.”

This female protagonist has many names for a reason. She is such a badass. She has been since the beginning of this series but The Cities truly showcases her skills. As a leader now she has officially shed her “slave” skin that’s left her proving a point and she’s moved
I Give this Book a 3.5/5 Star Rating, Listing as 3.

HEA(?): It does comes off as one (kinda wish for a head scratching emoji), but there is a book 4 coming soon so I’m assuming that this is a cliffhanger.
Cliffhanger: Yes......?
Heat: 5/5, while there’s is quite a bit of it, Loved the Scenes with Dray! But at some areas it did seem a tad repetitive or just very short lived, especially with the other guys, but nonetheless I enjoyed it.
Dark: 3.5/5
Romance: 3.5-4/5
Drama: 4.5-5/5
Suspense: 3.5-4ish/5

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 Amazing Stars!

“This might be a castle and I might be a queen in a tower, but this is no fairy tale. Dray isn’t prince charming, no, he’s the beast, a monster, and he doesn’t save me. I save my fucking self. This woman doesn’t need a prince for that, just a sword and air in my lungs.”

A cliffhanger!

Book 3 includes some full circle moments, lots of one on one time for Dray and his Queen. Gathering of the troops and uniting the groups behind the badass MFC takes some time, soul searching, and a couple heartbreaks along the way. Then we are in the cities and the climax(es) of her journey -- the battle of wills between the Queen of the North and the Madame Prime Minister of the cities... a bit of waiting around (insert a few sexy moments) and then ends with a battle cry of a clif

4.5 stars!

I am loving this post apocalyptic romance series. This is book three and just as addictive as the rest.

Worth has become this formidable force that is respected and supported all throughout the North. She has armies of people that trust her and are ready to go to war with her. She is more than ready to lead her people and secure their lands.

I think Dray, the batshit crazy King of the Seekers, is now my favourite! I loved him so much in this book. The way he always has Worths back, trust

Would be a solid 4.5

But the editing is horrible. When you put in print that it was professionally edited and proofread, you tend to expect a minimal amount of errors. The occasional if/of, as/is transposition...
incorrect word for the sentence but it is spelled correctly. This is the third book in the series. I get the "indie author" status. I have several author friends, I know it takes money to polish it all up. These are mistakes that anyone, beta readers especially, should have caught. I love

Long live the queen

I finished book three and I’m ready for war! Watching Tazanna transform from a uncertain loner to a confident leader is magical. I love her heart to help others. People want to follow her because she is brave and strong and doesn’t let anything stop her.

The harem, well they are all yummy but Dray, holy hot sauce...he’s freaking fabulous. Honestly they all give her different pieces she needs.

Tazanna is tough, she’s smart, and she kicks everyone who gets in her way. Let the No

Love Dray's Craziness

I am so in love with Worth. She is the kind of character that jumps of the page and right into your heart. If I ever met her in real life I guarantee we would be the best of friends (assuming she didn't kill me first). Dray is absolutely swoonworthy. As are the rest of the guys, but with them being held in the Cities it was really time to see him shine. His particular brand of crazy is so freaking hot. I loved seeing Worth grow into herself as a leader that others voluntaril

So disappointed

Possible spoilers...
I am so disappointed in this last book. The MC claims to love her men and want them back but she is too busy with Stay to actually find them. Then he married her without her knowing and she just accepts it but caring at all what her other "loves" will think of care. She went from being a Champion, but it seems once her guys were out of sight she didn't really care about how they felt. Yes, she mentioned how she wanted to go fine them but it fell flat. I cou

good conclusion

I’ve loved this series.
This book has a lot of Worth and Dray time and I’m all here for it. I love how her guys know what she needs, and I didn’t think I’d like Dray in the harem, but here we are. I love him.
The build up to the conclusion is good. It kept me invested and intrigued.
Sadly, while this book was almost my favorite in the series, it really is riddled with mistakes. So many word or spelling errors and actual mistakes. A couple of times it’s mentioned that Worth has 6 m

Loved the story but ending not great

I absolutely loved the story. Read these 3 and the other to with Piper....but both endings were a disappointment. The final battle on both but no outcome or what happened to the lovely characters in all the books.
I read a ton and the endings on both broke my reading heart.
Hopefully this helps the author to think further on the endings of any other book. I, myself, will not read from this author. I only gave 2 stars for the characters....

I cannot wait for that final book, this is why I waited until it was close to coming out. Cliffhangers be damn lol. This one is good but I have to admit I was sad that the 4 guys were only in the end even though it was part of the story. Also, can we talk about how much I love Worth. I can't even with all this badassery. I mean I want to live in Katie's head, how in the hell can one person make up so many great things?!

Mind blown

I can’t even right now, I ugly cried and about through my iPad while reading this one...knight really knows how to make you feel everything and this book really upped the bar. My emotions were every where and I don’t know how I’m supposed to function until Sept. 30th for Worth’s conclusion...I’ve never needed a character to get her HEA more than I need that for Worth. After everything she’s been through during the last 3 books, she is more deserving of it than any other character I’ve

Are you kidding me? Goodness! This series is putting me through it! Just when I think things are getting better for Worth , her guys are taken back to the cities .. Worth and Dray are going to get them back but they have a lot of obstacles in their way.. nothing is ever easy for her.. nothing

Her strength is absolute and I could not even .. Next time I stub my toe I’m going to feel really stupid when I cry..

The way this book ends had me all kinds of stressed out.. the cliffhanger will make you

I liked the series

When i began reading the series i read the forgotten and the lost first.. Not realizing that that champion series came first or they interact mix .. I like the books i like the characters i don't like the way they end it feels unfinished without knowing what comes after the war .. Both series are left this way im hoping there will be another book to let us know what happens afterwards ..

Just brilliant

From the first book this series had me sucked right into the story, I was invested and I wanted to know how it would end. I could not put this book down, I rooted for the good guys and this book even made me tear up that is how powerful the writing is.

That being said there was a lot of sex scenes in this one and I just wanted her to get to the guys so I skimmed through most of them.

Would definitely recommend!

My heart and soul are not ready.

The continued story is so well built and easy to fall into. I absolutely loved getting to see more of Dray he is my boo. He’s fierce and blood thirsty and just a total crazy bastard. I enjoyed every moment. Seeing Worth’s story progress was amazing I could not get enough. It was steamy and swoony and dirty and bloody delicious. Such an enthralling story I could not put it down. Can’t wait to see where book four will take us.

Jeeze, I love Worth. I was anxious for pretty much this whole book, even up till the ending since it stopped at a cliffhanger. I just love her attitude and her desire to protect everyone around her. I liked seeing her with Dray as they made their way to down to help save the rest of their group.

I’m really curious about Archel, Piper, and the doc and the rest of that crew. I have to go find if there’s a specific book series about them, or if they just went off from the world for a bit.

Long Live The Berserker Queen

No! No, no, no!!! You can't. I refuse. You can't leave it like that!

I can't believe I waited so long to read this series. It is seriously epic. Yes, it is dark. There is war. Death. Torture. Suffering. Betrayal. Revenge. But there is also hope, light, forgiveness and love. It's a real page turner, and will keep you fully immersed from the first page until the last.

I need the next book, now! 😁❤
