Tristan is a dark, charismatic character who wants to overthrow his brother and take the throne.
Sara is a woman with a plan to marry the king and eradicate the Faasa line. Both were strong characters that had great chemistry between them, and were well developed.

The story was a little slow to start but once it picked it up, it really got going. Again, certain words or descriptions were way over used. Smile/grin/smirk descriptions were used excessively. And the characters head movements were consistently described as well, nod/tilt/incline/etc.

It took at least half the book for the spicy scenes to occur but they were spicy. 5 peppers on my scale: full, anatomically correct, step by step descriptions of sexual activity are given significant space in the story. They were well done and the author used good descriptions, but again certain descriptions and words were excessively used. ( )

I loved this more than Hooked. It is not a retelling, but is inspired by the Lion King, and indirectly William Shakespeare's Hamlet. I loved the characters. Tristan was dark, brooding and I loved his scars . . . physical and emotional. I cannot wait to continue the series. ( )

I loved all the little references to both the Lion King and Hamlet, and they are manipulated in just the right way to change how you view the different characters and where your loyalties lie. Plenty of good descriptions and quotes, and has a slow burn to it as well. ( )

In Scarred, we follow Tristan Fassa, the scarred prince, who is the younger brother of Michael, the king. There is no love lost between the brothers. Their history is full of pain and betrayal.

When Sara, Michael's soon to be bride, arrives at the castle, Tristan is taken with her. He can't keep his eyes off her and very quickly figures out that Sara has an agenda of her own. Everyone does.

This started off slow but got very interesting before long. The slow burn, the anticipation, and the intrigue kept me enthralled. The spice was just the right amount. ( )

Slow-burn romance based very poorly on The Lion King.

I can't bring myself to find good things to say so I will be brief...

I did not like this book. It was too slow, was moronic, had badly used Hamlet vibes, and the whole Lion King thing is strangely used.

Not the best of the series for me.
