Welcome to the book tour for the beautiful fourth installment in the Birth of the Fae series, Kingdom Come! Read on for more details and a chance to win a FairyLoot Crate!
Kingdom Come is the fourth book in Danielle M. Orsino’s Birth of the Fae series. If you’re not reading this series, you are honestly missing out.
Book three ended with things moving in a promising direction – Queen Aurora and King Jarvok have found love with each other. The future looks bright...on paper, but what does the future really hold for these characters? With her scheming bishops lurking in the shadows looking for their opportunity to strike, danger looms. But it seems that the bishops aren’t the only trouble lurking waiting for a chance to create some chaos.
From the very beginning, this book will engage you and have you page-turning to find out what happens next. Queen Aurora has quite a bit on her shoulders. The unifying of the two factions, the ins and outs of the marriage, the day-to-day issues of the kingdoms, and a surprise element walking around. Her dreams are haunting her as well. The darkness that they promise...can it be put off? Can it be prevented? Or is it set in stone? After years of war, peace is a wonderful thing to seek for, but after all that has happened is it truly attainable?
The characters are engaging and the ones you have come to despise will continue in that vein. Queen Aurora is unpredictable at times in this book. She gets upset with the wrong people, and continues to be naive. She gets a much-needed shake though which is good. It might just be too little too late though. The plans are being laid while she chooses to live in denial. I’m glad that she has others that are more trustworthy and watchful surround her though.
The author weaves a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you wonder what will be the downfall of them all? Brace yourself, there are going to be some tragic moments ahead so make sure you grab a box of tissues...you’re going to need them. My jaw was on the floor. Literally. I wanted to be angry with certain elements and situations that unfolded, but it all lends toward the bigger picture.
One thing is for sure though...there will be another book in this series and I’m eager for it to find out what happens next. Where is the author taking this story? These characters? Will there be retribution? Will any of the questions burning in your mind be answered? I’m sure they will be. LOL!
I’m rating this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. I’m taking off half a star because I felt that Queen Aurora’s naivety went on just too long. I needed her to wake up sooner and stop having such blind faith in her bishops. If you have read the series to this point, you’re not going to want to miss out on what happens next! So dive in!
Thank you to the author, Danielle M. Orsino, and R&R Book Tours for the opportunity to read and review this book.
Kingdom Come (Birth of the Fae #4)
Publication Date: May 30th, 2022
Genre: Fantasy/ Fae
is peaceful in the Veil, which is usually when everything falls
Queen Aurora of the Court of Light and King Jarvok of the Court of Dark have fallen in love despite all odds. A relationship of political convenience has turned into something real and tangible for the two monarchs. After centuries of conflict and mistrust, the two Courts are about to unite as one: the Court of the Fae. But not every Fae is happy about the impending union.
Queen Aurora’s most trusted advisors have never lost touch with their old Angelic ways. These bishops still believe that Virtues and Power Angels were never meant to mix. According to them, Queen Aurora is no longer suitable to rule. As they mount a complex coup d’état to grasp the throne, a new threat to the monarchy makes their move.
Will the entire foundation of peace crumble with one last act of betrayal? Or will the bond between Court of Light and Dark prevail in the face of danger?

About the Author
Danielle M. Orsino is a fantasy novelist whose lifelong vision to create whimsical realms that her readers can escape to. Her compelling word-weaving pays homage to a multitude of personal muses, from Chris Claremont and George Pérez (both famous comic book writers) to Anne Rice and Wonder Woman.
The creative spark of storytelling has been with Danielle ever since she was a child, but martial arts and her nursing career took center stage into adulthood. Then, on a day like any other, it was reignited during the most unexpected of moments: while treating one of her patients. Seeing that they longed for a distraction during their arduous treatments, the floodgates of inspiration soon burst forth. So, Danielle took it upon herself to tell them a story; a fantastical narrative that would leave the confines of that IV room’s walls and land upon a page. Before she knew it, what started as an imaginative tale to pass the time, turned into book, followed by an entire series: The Birth of Fae. This awe-inspiring series includes Locked out of Heaven (Book One), Thine Eyes of Mercy (Book Two), and From The Ashes (Book Three), all of which are published by 4 Horsemen Publications, Inc. And with an unwavering passion for cosplay and comics, it was a unanimous decision to place her on the cover of each book in all her Fae cosplay glory. The Birth of Fae also features Los, an affable chameleon dragon inspired by her fun-loving Yorkie named Carlos.
When writing wasn’t at the forefront of her mind, Danielle was a successful Martial Artist. Some of her achievements include “1999 World Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inductee”, “Female Martial Artist of the Year”, “WKA World Champion Silver Medalist 2008”, and numerous more. She has also garnered hundreds of martial art tournament wins, various other national and world titles, and features on big-name channels like TLC and CBS. She even had the rare opportunity to perform for former U.S. President Bill Clinton and collaborate alongside Vincent Lyn and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. From there, she pursued her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science, and she is now a Licensed Practical Nurse who focuses on Lyme disease research.
This “New Queen of the Fae’s” unmatched world-building and masterful Fae-origin retellings have led to an ever-growing queendom of “Fae-natics”. To begin embarking upon a quest in an epic world unlike any other, visit Danielle M. Orsino’s official website at http://www.BirthOfTheFae.com. You can also connect with her on Instagram (@BirthOfTheFae_Novel) and Twitter (@BirthOfTheFae).
“After summoning this world into existence through an imaginative force of will, Danielle has scoured every inch of the landscape several times over. Critics often praise a story’s world building by saying that it feels “lived in.” Well, the world of the Fae certainly seems like that because Danielle herself has happily lived there for years as she worked to put all of this together… My favorite part of this story is that it is gloriously depicted in vibrant images.”
-Clete Barrett Smith, New York Times Bestselling Author of If We Were Giants, Aliens on Vacation series, and Magic Delivery
