Review: The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King

Series: The Hundredth Queen #3
Publication Date: February
Publisher: Skyscrape
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Amazon ~ Goodreads ~ TBD

Synopsis: Despite the odds, Kalinda has survived it all: Marriage to a tyrant. Tournaments to the death. The forbidden power to rule fire. The icy touch of a demon.

That same demon now disguises itself as Rajah Tarek, Kalinda’s late husband and a man who has never stopped haunting her. Upon taking control of the palace and the army, the demon brands Kalinda and her companions as traitors to the empire. They flee across the sea, seeking haven in the Southern Isles.

In Lestari, Kalinda’s powers are not condemned, as they are in her land. Now free to use them to protect those she loves, Kalinda soon realizes that the demon has tainted her with a cold poison, rendering her fire uncontrollable. But the lack of control may be just what she needs to send the demon back to the darkest depths of the Void.

To take back the empire, Kalinda will ally with those she distrusts—and risk losing those most loyal to her—to defeat the demon and bring peace to a divided nation.

My Rating
5/5 stars

My Review
This book had me hooked right from the first page. There is action from beginning to end.

Rajah Tarek has risen from the dead, only its not really him. A demon from the void, released by Prince Ashwin poses as his deceased father. In order for the demon to be free to release his master, he must make Ashwin's wish come true, which is of him ruling over their kingdom. With the demon posing as Rajah Tarek, no one will listen to Ashwin and Kalinda. As war over the empire begins, Kalinda, Ashwin and Deven must find a way to send the demon back to the void, before the world they know is lost forever.

I am so happy with how this series is turning out. I love all the books equally, they are all so different but all very goon in their own ways.

I adore Kalinda, and my opinion of her only keeps getting better and better. After the demon breathes ice-fire into Kalinda, her powers aren't the same. Her once bright flame has turned green, and no healers can heal her from the poison of the demon. We finally see a darker side to Kalinda in this book, and it was absolutely wonderful to read about. 

The world building in this book was even better than the previous. We see so many new places, and get a visit to some settings from the first book. The world Emily created sort of just comes together in this book, and it was fantastic to read about.

The plot in this book was definitely my favourite out of all three books. There was seriously action from beginning to end, and there wasn't a moment in the book where I was bored.

Overall, this series just keeps getting better and better and I cannot wait to read the next book (I'm assuming there will be another book based on the ending). I highly recommend this book to all YA Fantasy fans, especially if you loved the first two books.

Happy Reading,
