Rogue’s Pawn Covenant of Thorns Series
Publisher: Carina Press
This is no fairy tale…
Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiancé, I impulsively walked out of my life—and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can’t control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price—my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself…
With no hope of escaping this world, I must learn to harness my magic and build a new life despite the perils—including my own inexplicable and debilitating desire for Rogue. I swear I will never submit to his demands, no matter what erotic torment he subjects me to…

I always enjoy a good Fae story and Rogue’s Pawn did not disappoint. The story follows the journey of Jennifer who is unhappy with her life and fiancé. After she walks out of a cocktail party that she attended with her Fiancé, she goes for a drive. Jennifer ends up in Devil’s Tower. Soon events take place that while there, and through mysterious events, Jennifer ends up in the land of Faerie and comes face to face with a Black dog that she had been having dreams about. The dog attacks, but her death is prevented by Rogue, who now says that she has to serve seven years in order to pay her debt (as well as the fact he desires her first-born child -that he will father).
I enjoyed reading Rogue’s Pawn.. I was intrigued with the world that the author created, the system of magic and the rules and regulations of that land( I’ve always been fascinated regarding the Fae ‘s various do’s, don’ts’s and not even- that usually make up their rituals and beliefs systems). In Author Kennedy’s world, she did a great job of mixing standard Fae mythological, with her own fresh and unique take on this world.
In Author Kennedy’s world, these beautiful beings were slightly hard edge- warriors-definitely not small innocent little sprites!
The writing of Rogue’s Pawn was smart, straightforward, concise and clean. There was humor throughout, such as when Jennifer called one of the Fae’s Nasty Tinkerbell instead of Lady Incandescence. Also the heroine Jennifer’s inner strength was reflected with her ability to use humor in some of the darkest, harder places she found herself. I also liked the fact that Jennifer was giving a high intelligence, the story centered around Jennifer attempting to use a scientific approach to the world of magic that she had found herself in.
Rogue was an Alpha Male, who made no apology for who he was or his beliefs and actions. Jennifer and Rogue’s relationship was a push and pull, that really found no concrete solution, although that fit with the fact this was a first book in a series, so a great set up was created. I enjoyed several of the other characters Starling, Puck and Darla the cat!:)
Rogue’s Pawn had great pacing, a good flow, very entertaining and I look forward to the next book in the series!
I recommend for those who enjoy a good Fae , paranormal or romantic read!
