Review originally posted Always he was second or third choice Just once he wanted to be someone s first choice He wanted to be offered accepted with pride Not from obligation or with resignation He wanted to be a preference not simply the least disappointing of limited options Kristof from With Pride by Megan DerrI can t lie I have been a fan of Megan Derr for many years and she is one of my favorite authors I was excited when she and two other authors I followed on LiveJournal began the Less Than Three Press So when I saw that Derr had a new book listed on NetGalley I knew I had to read it Her work is some of my favorite and is a bit of my guilty pleasure reading that I can rely on when I have had a bad day With Pride is now among my favorites from herHere is a brief summary of the plot of With Pride Kristof a paladin holy warrior is sent to take one of his sibling s places and marry a Prince of Blood half demon men who survive on the blood of pure humans While he will do his duty and marry a Prince of Blood Kristof is resentful of not having any choice in the matter and especially of not knowing which Prince he will marry Unfortunately for Kristof H kon his betrothed is the least welcoming of the Princes and seems determined to provoke Kristof s temper and disgust However before they can be un happily wed a demon attacks the castle and the attack signals that there is a much larger attack planned With their marriage plans on hold Kristof and H kon with a platoon of men set out to discover the mastermind behind the attacks Having to rely on someone you don t like and may have to marry is not something that comes easily to either of them The trip may provide a way to the happier lives they both desire if they don t kill each other firstI can t lie I loved With Pride There are some parts that are a bit unpolished but I loved the story and am happy it will live on my e reader for when I have a bad day I read the book in under a day and just could not put it down Some of the story elements eg paladins demons and necromancers and the world building reminded me of my favorite story by Derr Black Magic However this was a truly uniue storyThe best place to start is with the world building that Derr has done so well The world building is even impressive when you realize that this is the second book in the same world I have not read that one yet so my understanding is only based on this book The bits and pieces about the world around the main characters Kristof and H kon fall into place subtlety and in little chunks I dislike when there are pages upon pages devoted to a surrounding and Derr stays away from this There were so many new and uniue types of creatures all working together in the Legion the ruling army of the world There are paladins with holy magic the Princes of Blood with their demonic powers necromancers piskies I had to look this up as I thought initially it was a spelling error but it is just a different spelling of pixies dragoons who are able to shift their body parts to draconian versions and many others than I can list I am excited to read of this series to learn about these creatures and how most are gathered under one rulerThe characters in the story were another stand out for me While I enjoyed H kon it was Kristof that I related to and liked from the beginning Kristof is everything you want from a paladin He s tall handsome and fills out his armor But than that he is a good and courageous man who sacrifices almost everything for others including his looks he has many scars and is slightly disfigured his choices in life and even his potential future happiness However he doesn t see this side of himself Instead he focuses on his internal fear of demons one that is justified by his previous encounters with them There is also a longing to be seen for himself and not to always be the one that everyone else leans on He is just so human in those moments He tries to make the best of his situation and reach out to his new fianc e Kristof provides the perfect human foil to H kon s mostly demonic character Their interactions are at first painful because of the dislike and animosity between them but it is wonderful for the story There are many great exchanges between them but the exchange below is my favoriteKristof Since we have met you ve been nothing but mocking and derisive You despise me to the point you callously disregard facts and cause me pain to sate your own needs It would not have killed you to show a little kindness Not once have I denied you Highness All I asked was reassurance that you have a care for my pain when you feed H kon I didn t mean Kristof You didn t care enough to mean anything All you wanted was to satisfy your hunger and use me as a target for your anger You ve gotten what you wanted Highness Get out One of Derr s best abilities is to turn a character you dislike into someone you can not only sympathize with but then actually like She has done this with H kon He is the very small pretty and vicious Prince of Blood who is demon than human at the beginning of the story I did not like him until part way through the story when we begin to see why he is the way he is and when he starts to realize how cruel he has been By the end of the story I was rooting for H kon and Kristof to end up together One of the reasons he is to be married is to try and remind him to be human and this is something he doesn t want but Kristof is hard to ignore For example H kon thinks Damn it He did not want to remember what it was like to be human Not this much The second half of the story follows H kon and uncovers his painful history It was great to watch his slow transformation into something a little human I also have to say I found it amusing that because he was so much smaller than Kristof he either gets picked up or climbs Kristof when they have a private momentThe other characters in the background are also interesting The Princes of Blood were fascinating and it was interesting to see how different these men were I really enjoyed the moments where High Prince Telm and his husband High Priest Korin are in the story I am excited that they are the main characters of the next book I would love to learn about how they ended up together as they are a very strong couple in this story My favorite side character though was Erz bet a kidapped village mother that helps H kon to investigate the evil necromancer She is just a normal woman but she is strong and smart and she does what needs to be done There is strength and fragility in her All I want is to go home and never have to kill anyone again One thing with this book is that it can be very dark at times There are some rather gruesome ideas that show just how dangerous the world is You get hints of this evil when you encounter the necromancer and how demons are seeded basically planted to come and wreak havoc many years down the line Yet for all the death and destruction the love story works and you are cheering for themMy only issue with the book is that the second half of the plot didn t really work The first half was great it was interesting and kept the reader engaged The second half slowed down with many flashbacks and because the point of view switched to H kon while Kristoff and H kon separate you only really got to see H kon I probably could have completely ignored this if not for the fact that the final fight and the reveal of the evil mastermind fell flat for me at the last moment There was such a great build up and then it just sort of ended Derr is capable of much complex endings or delicate handling so I was a bit disappointedHowever that last plot point aside I loved this book Like I said earlier I will be reading the rest of the series and I know I will be re reading this book It will not be to everyone s tastes it does contain adult language and situations just as heads up but for me it falls in my guilty pleasure categoryFinal Verdict A great uick read with an amazing new world characters that will engage you and a romance you can root for

Free download ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ì Megan Derr Megan Derr ì 4 review Summary With Pride R too close to the castle an evil that has many pieces controlled by someone they cannot find and who always seems one step ahead of them Someone who seems to think that demons are little than to. First read July 2014Re read Feb 2016Engaging fantasy story and preuel to Of Last Resort where we met the Paladin Kristoff and his husband the Blood Prince Hakon This is the story of the start of their relationship and seeks Kristoff unwillingly going to his marriage not knowing which of the Princes he is to be the husband of Hakon doesn t want a husband he s probably the most rebellious of the Princes and the one most in danger of having his Demon take over This is a good enemies to lovers story as it involves a lot of interesting plot that is not centered around their relationship and a good solid happy ending

Summary With Pride

Free download ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ì Megan Derr Megan Derr ì 4 review Summary With Pride When his sister falls ill Kristof is ordered to assume a duty never meant for him become the Duke of Stehl and marry a notorious Prince of the Blood It is one of the oldest honors and duties unde. 35 stars Princes of the Blood series is rather uniue since the books are moving backwards Meaning that this is not a seuel of the first book Of Last Resort but instead it tells story about two men we already know as a couple Kristof a Paladin as well as the new Duke of Stehl and H kon a Prince of BloodI still had similar issues with the world build just like I mentioned in my own review for book 1 I thought Megan Derr s idea was excellent It was complex and imaginative Having said that I again thought it felt a bit blurry I still couldn t really grasp the differences of these branches I did have my guess as the story moved along but still most of the time I thought this world build stayed in the mind of the author and not smoothly translated into the mind of readersIn addition I thought the two parts were not well balanced In the second part Kristof and H kon were separated and the narration switched completely to H kon the first part was all from Kristof s perspective The good thing we learned about H kon s past and there was FINALLY a female character here whose presence was uite important as she helped H kon around The bad thing It disrupted the start of a closer relationship between Kristof and H kon Also the final fight felt anti climactic which was also my problem with the first bookFortunately I thought the romance was better this time around Megan Derr seems to be at her best when she writes about characters who seem to dislike one another at first Here H kon seemed to despise Kristof very much he was rude to Kristof and definitely hated the idea of being engaged to the paladin I enjoyed the slow change of the nature of their relationship when H kon realized that Kristof was not as bad as he thought Even if they ended up separated for the second half of the bookSo overall I thought it was slightly better than Of Last Resort But it wasn t one of my favorites of Ms Derr The ARC is provided by the publisher in NetGalley for an exchange of fair and honest review No high rating is reuired for any ARC received
