Book Review

The Shadow Queen

Leaving the forests, her pack, and fledgling Court behind, Evelyn travels to the white mountains of the Court of Light. Deep in the mountains, navigating not only a frigid court but also challenges and trials she never could have foreseen, she risks losing more than just her crown.

My Thoughts 

I am so grateful to have received this book in exchange for an honest review. I am so thankful for The Hatter Author Services and the author for the opportunity! 

This is the sequel in the Wolfrik Trilogy and the characters are rebuilding after the dramatic ending of the first book in the series. The author leads us right into the action and the drama of this world and it was thrilling. There was so much action and drama packed into this sequel and it was a truly fun roller coaster to read and I l finished it in three hours…. Yeah it’s so insane. This book started off with such a bang and kept going and going and going until the very last page. Not only was it action, but the author just threw more and more twists and turns into this roller coaster that I will be calling my doctor for a wicked case of whiplash! 

The story and the book world is oh so interesting and I loved it, but the characters can sometimes be a hit and a miss for me…. 

I like Evie a lot and I find her to be extremely powerful and a compelling character, but her dialogue could be so cheesy sometimes. I just didn’t understand some of the things she would say and her dialogue just seems too timid that it almost seems to be like it’s coming from another character. I also thought that some of the things she said seemed a little ridiculous or just not necessary so that kind of annoyed me just a tad. However, I really enjoy her character and I can’t wait to see her become more and more developed. 

Sooooo…. Aiden and Ares…. hmmmmm. I was such an Aiden fan in the first book, but this book…. He kind of bored me. No tea, no shade of course. I just feel like his and Evie’s relationship has sort of fizzled for me and I’m ready for Ares to just swoop in there and get some because he has intrigued me from the very beginning… MORE ARES PLEASEEEEEEE. Sorry Aiden… your banter is no longer good here….. 

The side characters are what really stole the show for me; however….. I am so intrigued by Ruby’s story with those sexy lions and Bren and Maverick…. I NEED ALL THE TEA HONEY! (Sorry, I’ve been watching a LOT of Rupaul……) 

Overall, this book was just a fun and magical read and I can’t wait for the next installment to the series.
