Jessie Mihalik – Queens Advantage

When Queen Samara Rani fulfills the promise she made to Emperor Valentin Kos to visit his court and meet with his advisers, she knows they won’t welcome her with open arms, especially when she’s been tasked with discovering the traitors within their ranks – traitors she tricked out of five million credits.

As soon as Samara begins her investigation, it becomes clear that Valentin’s advisers want her gone and they aren’t picky about how. After their tactics turn violent, Samara and Valentin race to unravel the web of treachery and lies before the next attack ends in tragedy.

When the conflict escalates in ferocity and rumors start blaming Samara, she is forced to continue her hunt alone. Uncovering traitors is difficult when courtiers learn to lie before they learn to walk, and one misstep could cost her life. However, Rogue Queens aren’t easy to kill, and Samara has more than a few tricks of her own.

token reasoned

The start of this series had several appealing qualities like the fairly lo fantasy tech, and siitable premise.

However I can only say that all other qualities vital to any fictional book was dwindeling from the start but i eas hopefull. But here it hits rock bottom with no hope for recovery.

This latest installement the story is as straight forward and bland as they come so when the storytelling tecniques are virtually non excistent it truly begs the question: what is the point of this book. The book gives us norhing but a runtrough of the activities from a to b. The world is mostly described in few words and thus uninteresting, so are the characters and their social connections snd social struckture. It all just rambles on with the characters spelling out the motions of the story to each other in huge chunks a monologs. That in it self is unbelivable as it is, add to it this incredible naive and childish need to state their every thought, attitude and intent inn these monologues and you truly remove any point of telling this story to begin with.
