Book cover for A Beggar's Kingdom by Paullina Simons - the second story in the End of Forever saga

How much would you sacrifice for true love? The second novel in Paullina Simons’ stunning End of Forever saga continues the heartbreaking story of Julian and Josephine, and a love that spans lifetimes.

Julian has travelled from the heights of joy to the depths of despair and back again. Having found his love – twice – and lost her – twice, he is resolved to continue his search and find her in the past again. Perhaps this time he can save her.
But the journey is never so simple and Julian will have to decide just how much one man can sacrifice. He is willing to give up everything – but he must learn what that truly means, and how much more can be taken from you than you ever believed possible.

A Beggar’s Kingdom by Paullina Simons is published by Harper Collins (8th August 2019) and is available in digital, paperback and audiobook formats.


A Beggar’s Kingdom is the second part in the End of Forever saga and follows on from The Tiger Catcher. I was captivated again following Julian on his time-travelling adventure in search of his love, Josephine.

As a history lover I really enjoyed the chapters that sent Julian back into the past and noticing the changes in London from his previous visit. Unfortunately, Julian finds and loses his love on several occasions but his determination is astonishing and never ending. His character seems unbelievable in his quest but his presence is definitely believable. The search he endures is painful and tiring and throughout there is a desire for him to get his girl.

A wonderfully exciting read and I am looking forward to finding out if he succeeds in the conclusion book, Inexpressible Island.

A great series to read.
