Review: All the King’s’Men (The Yellow Hoods #3) by Adam Dreece

Goodreads summary:

More than a hundred years ago, a king declared that all geniuses, scientists and inventors were abominations, save for those willing to become his Conventioneers. His edict spread like wildfire through the kingdoms, and drove the hunted into the arms of the secret societies, the Tub and the Fare.

Decades later, having taken control of the remains of the crushed Fare, a young Marcus Pieman follows up on rumors of a homeless, teenage Abominator in his city. When the scared Nikolas Klaus looked up at Marcus for the first time, a tremendous bond was forged. But has Nikolas been part of Marcus’ plans from the beginning? And has Marcus been a pawn of the original Fare the entire time?

A betrayal leads Tee to a showdown with her greatest foe. Who breaks and who lays bleeding in the middle of nowhere?

And Mounira learns the truth about the once great inventor, Christophe Creangle.


5 STARS!!!

All the King’s Men took this series to a whole new level.
I loved the second book so much that I didn’t expect the third to top it. Adam Dreece’s storytelling skills keep getting better and better!

All of the storylines in this book are woven together seamlessly and beautifully. This story touches a lot on friendship, brotherhood, family, and betrayal. We learn more about our heroes and villains and get a look into many of the character’s back stories. My favorite part of the book was getting to learn more about Nikolas and Marcus’s past.

Tee is on the run with Elly, Franklin, Mounira, and Christina. She has been burdened with secrets involving Elly that are tearing her apart. Also reeling from a fresh loss, she’s having a difficult time and before long, finds herself face to face with an old enemy.

Richy and Eg are off looking for Bakon, while Bakon is looking for the Pieman’s. They soon find each other in a surprising place!

The plot twists involving Richy and Bakon were two of my favorite! I can’t go on enough about how intricate and flawless the intertwining storylines are in this series! It’s fun when you read these books and recognize something from a fairy tale – I’m sure I haven’t known all of them.

Each book that Dreece writes just bring so much more momentum to this series! I get incredibly excited thinking about reading these to my son in a few years. A tale of action and adventure mixed with life lessons on the bonds of family and friendship. What more could a reader ask for?
