Perfect for fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses and Uprooted, this stand-alone, fantasy romance about a human girl and her marriage to the Elf King is impossible to put down The elves come for two things: war and wives. In both cases, they come for death.Three-thousand years ago, humans were hunted by powerful races with wild magic until the treaty was formed. Now, for centuries, the elves have taken a young woman from Luella's village to be their Human Queen.To be chosen is seen as a mark of death by the townsfolk. A mark nineteen-year-old Luella is grateful to have escaped as a girl. Instead, she's dedicated her life to studying herbology and becoming the town's only healer.That is, until the Elf King unexpectedly arrives... for her.Everything Luella had thought she'd known about her life, and herself, was a lie. Taken to a land filled with wild magic, Luella is forced to be the new queen to a cold yet blisteringly handsome Elf King. Once there, she learns about a dying world that only she can save.The magical land of Midscape pulls on one corner of her heart, her home and people tug on another... but what will truly break her is a passion she never wanted.A Deal with the Elf King is a complete, stand-alone novel, inspired by the tales of Hades and Persephone, as well as Beauty and the Beast, with a "happily ever after" ending. It's perfect for fantasy romance fans looking for just the right amount of steam and their next slow-burn and swoon-worthy couple. … (més)

I consider this my guilty pleasure as a relaxing read. I enjoyed the story, and I didn't get a headache trying to place who is where and how the plot is unfolding. It was straightforward. I cannot wait for the rest of the series. ( )

A magical read

I'm usually not a fan of elves and fae stories because most make them too cold and selfish to relate too but this story didn't do that. The characters were easy to love.

I'm looking forward to the next book. ( )

Drawn in by the cover. The tag line on the back/opening lines about elves only crossing the border for war and wives and always death doesn’t reflect the actual book at all. A lot of things are comically over simplified, like 30 pages in she realizes that her childhood crush was actually kind of a douche canoe because of how well the Elf King treats her. Not only does she decide she never really loved Luke minutes after the Elf King arrives, she suddenly realizes he was low key abusive by the way a STRANGE MAN GRABS HER, BUT NICER SOMEHOW? Not buying it. I’m all for suspending disbelief and I get that you can enjoy a romance novel that isn’t the perfect example of a healthy relationship - that’s not my issue. It reads like fanfic in how quickly characters realize Big Truths and decide to like each other after a few chapters of not getting along.

Would I read another book by Kova? Gah. Probably. Almost certainly yes at some point. I would rather have read this book after a few rounds of heavy edits focusing on character development. I loved her world building and the plot is really interesting. The ending—the need for symmetry— was really cool, but never really explains why we couldn’t have just done that in the first place. ( )
