The Warrior Queen - Review

The Warrior Queen - The Hundredth Queen #4
by Emily R. King

What they say: In the final volume of The Hundredth Queen Series, Kalinda will risk everything to save the man she loves.

Kalinda has brought peace to the Tarachand Empire, at least for now. Bhutas no longer need to hide their gifts. The last of the rebels have been banished. And Prince Ashwin is set to take over as rajah.

But for Kalinda, this all came at a great loss. Her childhood home. Her best friend. The love of her life.

Deven is still trapped in the Void, although he is able to find his way to Kalinda each night. He has been lucky so far — mortals are not meant to last in the Void for long, and Deven has lasted longer than most. But when he doesn’t visit her one night, Kalinda knows that his luck has run out.

She will do whatever it takes to save the man she loves, even if it means convincing a god to guide her through the Void. Freeing a mortal from the Void is nearly impossible, but Kalinda has never let those odds stop her before… 

I received a copy from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I'm going to start with a warning The Warrior Queen is not a standalone. I have a bad habit of starting a book series in the wrong order and where sometimes it doesn't matter, here you really do need to start at the beginning - but that's not a bad thing because as a whole I enjoyed the series.

The Warrior Queen doesn't have as much action as previous books but it does pack quite the emotional punch.

I'd like to have the magical magnetism Kalinda seems to possess although I'm not sure I could cope with the romantic drama in real life - Deven and Ashwin I'm looking at you! I did find Ashwin endearing (at times), I'm not sure what this says about me?!

I'm still conflicted about Kali. Sometimes I liked her strong sense of right, whilst at others I found it a little much. I understand about giving power to those who don't covet it but I was desperate to see her face up to things and be like HELLO here I am!

I enjoyed all the different stories and the character development is good. I'm now off to contemplate the void and wonder if certain characters are going to get their own story...

3.5 Stars in my Sky!
