I was finally able to read the third book in Emily R. King’s The Hundredth Queen series, The Rogue Queen! As expected after the first two books – it was Fantastic♥ If you have already read The Hundredth Queen and The Fire Queen then you know the epic, saga adventure you’re unleashing upon yourself – if you haven’t (and…you must) then consider this series (kinda-sorta) a cross between Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes series and Maas’s Throne of Glass series (how stoked are you now?).
Beginning here I’d like to whine and cry (basically a spoiler page) about all the things I mentally screamed while reading Rogue…I won’t (with any details)…but I soooo want to. I will give you a small glimpse of Kris’s brainscape (think mentally sputtering incomplete sentences and thoughts).
1. Wait! Kali…no! Wth… (the h is for heck – just in case toddlers decide Whiskey & Wit is the new black) (in actuality, Wth is not quite accurate)
2. Why did you not explain __________ (add any MC’s name here)?
3. Don’t walk away – Do NOT walk away
4. No way – not again…
5. Deven – Use your words!
6. Ashwin – Man up FTLOG!
7. Kali! Don’t’ Touch! Don’t Touch! DO NOT TOUCH! (I bet you wish you knew 😊)
And on and on it will go! This series is intense – Warning: No lulls will be found… I thought I knew how the third book would progress – I did not – sooooo wrong – very wrong. Now of course, I kind of (sort of) know how The Warrior Queen (book 4) will play out. Should we take bets (note to self – you don’t win at board games (ever), you couldn’t even foresee how a Little House on the Prairie episode would end).
I can not wait to read the last book in the series if for no other reason than Kalinda (I Hope) finds peace. I should also mention that I am equally excited to learn that King has a new series coming out next year, The Evermore Chronicles!
