This review is for part 1 and part 2 of Tripple Crown. 

An enjoyable second half and conclusion of the King's Maker story. It's nice to see what the characterization that was set up in the first half became in the second. This one focuses more on Shin than on Wolfgang, and his struggle with feelings and expectations for the kingdom. There are some instances that seem out of place or redundant and a few that didn't fit with the flow of the story, but it is still very engaging and enjoyable The naughty bits in the mature version appear to have been made after the original, so their placement in the story is often very random and out of place, but it is helpful to get more of the relationship between Shin and Wolfgang that we don't see developed well in the standard story (inference aside, of course.) I was disappointed in the characterization around Sys. He's a great character, but some of his interactions with other characters are a bit too sexually deviant and lack consent, which is a disappointment.

I feel that the first half is better world-building and plot-driven than the second (King's Maker), though the second has a more character-driven plot and romance development. I love and enjoy both/the full set, though! I should note that I have read this multiple times and am very tempted to buy the Korean hard copies.

This can be a rough read for some people. Trigger warnings include: murder, disembodiment, death, and drug use. Some scenes are more graphic and have a lot of blood/body parts.
