The Queen was an excellent ending to the Bed Wife Chronicles! Lynn spun a serious twist in the plot with book three. I suspected it, but wasn’t completely certain.
Lynn’s third book had me holding my breath with worry for the fate of the characters which has to be a strong indicator of how much I loved these characters. I’ve said that sometimes I like a good contemporary romance to ‘cleanse my palate’ after reading all the creepiness and post-apocalyptic mayhem. Well, what do I use to get over Lynn’s books? I was left with a serious hangover in between each book. The Queen was no different.
As I said in my review of The Heir–great villains! I’m coming to the conclusion that the best villains are the ones you least expect because they’re hiding amongst those people who are supposed to love you (hint….family). Does that make me really twisted as a writer? (We shall see…)
I found more characters to love in The Queen–Ferric, Faylen, and Queen Valasca. All three of them were strong individuals. I admired them and applauded their individual acts of bravery. Lynn, if you’re reading this, please give them their own platforms to speak! I’d love to read them.
Overall, The Queen, is a well-worthy read. Even if you don’t care for historical romances, you’ll love this book (and all of The Bed Wife Chronicles). Lynn’s wonderful attention to crafting a story won’t disappoint you!
I look forward to reading more by Suzanna Lynn!
