New Release: Prince Poison (Gods and Monsters #1) by Klarissa King

Klarissa is a cool one, I can tell by her stories, and I’m so happy she’s back!

Prince Poison (Gods and Monsters #1) by Klarissa King released Tuesday in the Fantasy, New Adult genre.

Few knew Valissa’s secret but it already carried a death toll. One.
If the Gods ever discovered what she was, they would capture and flay her alive. 

But in the land of Gods and Monsters, no secret stays hidden for long. 
Lissa—drunk on the high of a midnight party that’s rife with mysterious pirates—gets too close to one of the pirates, who turns out to have secrets of his own.
Jasper is no pirate. He is a servent of the Gods. And the moment she touches him, she steals his power.
He kidnaps Lissa, and he’s taking her to one of the most brutal Gods in all the lands … He’s taking her to Prince Poison.
Prince Poison’s mere touch kills and his cruelty is said to stretch beyond even the darkest pits of Lissa’s soul. But when she’s standing in front of this fearsome God, ready to face her gruesome fate, the Prince might see more in her than she ever thought possible. 
What could possibly be worse than dying at the hands of an evil God? 
Becoming his obsession…

Gods and Monsters will be six books that are novella-length.


There was a darkness in me.

It coiled like a sailor’s rope around my bones—but it didn’t clutch my soul. It came from my soul.

On Zwayk, after seeing what my power did to my mother, I feared releasing my darkness. It would only bring more pain and horror, cut deeper than time could ever heal.

Standing at the ship’s rails, I tossed that over and over in my mind, feeling every lick of anger dance with terror beneath my skin.

Would Prince Poison sense more than my secret gift?

Would he reach further into my soul than anyone should ever venture, and pluck out the cruelty inside of me?

It wasn’t an option—Monster had to stay hidden. It was too late into the voyage for her to be of much use now, and the closer we got to Scocie, the more I doubted her.

Prince Poison was a Malis, an evil God, one to be feared above all else. He might use Monster against me; force me to enact the cruelties I dreamt up.

At the thought, my nails cut harder into the salt-eroded wood.

I felt the pinch of a splinter, but the bite of pain didn’t reach my stony face.

Inside, I was all battled-sobs and cries of terror. Outside, I was a statue—the kind we heard about from sailors that visited our isle, apparently dotted throughout the Capital and were said to have been sculpted from fallen stars.

Whether a star-statue or a wooden club, it didn’t matter. I was numb on the outside, because if I let a slight crack break the surface, everything would erupt. Chances were, I would have tossed myself overboard.

Maybe I should have done that.
