The thrilling conclusion to Crown of Lies from New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters


Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.


Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.


To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.


For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.


For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.


For me to walk out the door.


For it all to be over.

ARIANNA’s review

To say that I was excited to read this second installment in this series would be a big understatement. Once again, Pepper Winters delivers an intriguing, sexy, emotional read that kept me at the edge of my seat from start to finish. Gripping and enthralling, ‘Throne of Truth’ is filled with suspense, emotion and angst and while I didn’t love it as much as the first installment, I enjoyed it very much.

“The longer I was in his presence, the more I fought an unwinnable battle between my heart and body.“

The book picks up right where the first installment ends. Elle finds out that Penn is hiding something. She doesn’t know what he wants from her or who he is. She just knows she doesn’t want anything to do with him anymore, not when he’s so linked to her past. Elle finds herself in a dangerous situation. She’s alone and afraid, but she’s willing to do anything to get out from the frightful situation she’s currently in.

Meanwhile, Penn finds out Elle is missing. He’s frustrated that Elle refuses to talk to him, to let him explain everything. Even if he doesn’t want to, he cares for her and he will do anything to get her back. He will find her no matter what and he will make her listen to him one way or another, because she needs to find out the truth.

“He kissed me savagely. We kissed as if we were starving. Our tongues fought, our teeth nipped, we became drunk on fucking with our bodies and our lips.”

I was immersed in this story from the very beginning. ‘Throne of Truth’ is well written, captivating and, most of all, full of angst and, of course, some interesting twists and turns. I’m sure, like me, you had lots of questions when you finished the first book, but rest assured – all your questions will be answered. This second installment is full of surprises and revelations I quite enjoyed.

Once again, Elle is a great heroine. I loved her strength. She’s smart, very mature for her age, a real woman who knows what she wants and needs. In this second installment, we find out more about Penn – who he is, what he wants from Elle and everything about his secrets. His character is intriguing, layered and I absolutely loved his portrayal. His POV is fantastically written. Penn is kind, sweet, thoughtful, considerate and very possessive and protective at times. I loved the way he was with Elle, and the passion between them was intense.

“He was an angel and monster in one. Just human with perfections and imperfections.”

I loved the connection between the two main characters and how palpable the chemistry between them was at times. As for the sex scenes between them – holy cannoli! – so damn hot!

All in all, ‘Throne of Truth’ is a great conclusion. The enthralling story-line and the slow burn romance really kept me intrigued from cover to cover.
