The boys of Kings Row head to France with exes, rivalries, and secrets in this original YA novel by New York Times bestselling author Sarah Rees Brennan–inspired by the award-nominated comic series by C.S. Pacat and Johanna The Mad

The boys of Kings Row are off to a training camp in Europe! Surrounded impressive scenery and even more impressive European fencing teams, underdog Nicholas can’t help but feel out of place. With the help of a local legend, though, he and the rest of the team finds it within themselves to face superior fencers, ex-boyfriends, expulsion, and even Nicholas’s golden-boy, secret half-brother, the infamous Jesse Coste. Will Aiden and Harvard end up together, though? En garde!

The second installment of this enticing original YA novel series by Sarah Rees Brennan, rich with casual diversity and queer self-discovery, explores never-before-seen drama inspired by C.S. Pacat’s critically acclaimed Fence comic series.


Ah how I love these boys!!! Seiji, Nicholas, Aiden and Harvard are back but this time in France!!!

Seiji is my favourite in this book! His transformation is slow but wonderful and I just loved it whenever he was on page. His dad is the best and that first phone call was hilarious LMAO😂😂

Nicholas and Seiji are so cute!!! I love them so much! Their slow burn will kill me and I need the next book immediately! They’re going to be that couple that just realises that they have been dating for 10 years!

“I’m no fun, Nicholas,” said Seiji calmly.“Haven’t you heard?”
“Everyone tells me,” said Nicholas.“But I don’t believe them.”
“What do you believe?”
“You’re my match,” said Nicholas.“You’re the match I’m going to win someday. The one I’m looking forward to the most.”

As for Aiden and Harvard, I wanted to lock them in a room and make them talk. Ironically they are roommates but could still never have a conversation. A bit of misunderstanding is fun but this book just had a lot more than last book and I didn’t think that was possible. But the ending was amazing and made up for it, so I’m really happy. Childhood bestfriends to lovers always make me swoon and Harvard and Aiden are no different. They are so cute and I cannot deal!

We also have another oblivious pair, Bobby and Dante, Dante is pining really hard and Bobby is so oblivious. Let’s just hope!

If you want fun fencing camp shenanigans, pining, clueless and in love MCs, obliviousness and petty crimes, definitely pick up Fence: Disarmed! I cannot wait for whatever is  coming out next!

PS: FFS Harvard, FRIENDSHIP VALENTINE’S CARDS?? Seriously???🤦🏽‍♀️
