The 5-Time Rejected Gamma and the Lycan King by Stina's Pen is a lengthy paranormal romance that is well worth the read and features compelling characters and a well-articulated conflict. In this novel, the destiny of two phenomenal characters is set on a collision course as love awakens in their hearts. The Lycan King Alexandar wields tremendous power, and the moment he sets eyes on Gamma Lucianne, he believes they are destined to be mated in a union ordained by the goddess. But Lucianne wants nothing to do with Alexandar, especially after having experienced heartache five times before with failed mate-bonds. She is determined not to give her heart to anyone - not even the king. There are also enemies who will do everything to make sure Lucianne never becomes the Queen, and this includes killing her. Alexandar will not take no for an answer while knowing that if he doesn’t protect her, he won’t even have the chance of a first meeting to propose.
This is an enthralling book with a stunningly imagined setting, a world brimming with conflict and intrigue. The Alphas and Lunas and the best warrior of each pack, called Gammas, spend their lives fending off attacks on the kingdom. Stina's Pen introduces Lucianne Freesia Paw right at the start of the story and arouses the interest of readers when the king is stunned by her beauty. The attraction is instant and Lucianne appears as an apparition in front of the King, “like his mate was already ten feet away when he had only taken the first step.” I wanted to see what would become of the two, and the author uses this to build suspense in the story. The Lycan king is a tortured man. Although invested with great power, he is unable to contain his desire for Lucianne, and the journey he makes to conquer her heart becomes the main plot point in this compelling narrative. In The 5-Time Rejected Gamma and the Lycan King, Stina's Pen shines in portraying the emotional conflict between Lucianne and the king, exploring their inner worlds with unique intelligence while introducing readers to exciting elements of the setting and memorable characters.
