Summary

Epic eco-fantasy from the award-winning author of The Troubadours Quartet

One misfit girl and 50,000 bees. Together, they must change the world.

As the Mages of the Citadel fight amongst themselves and prepare for war against the Forest, Mielitta, a despised servant, has her own battle to face. Bastien and Jannlou, the boys who terrorized her as a child, have grown into their status as Mages, and she cannot escape them forever.

In desperation, she flees to the forbidden Forest and its dangerous attractions. Her scent angers thousands of bees, and although she survives their attack, she has changed. A strange bee symbol glows on her thigh and her senses are altered. She learns that her connection with bees enables her to summon their aid and gives her the power to shift shape.

This new-found bond works both ways, and the bees need Mielitta's help as the rift widens between Forest and Citadel. Can one girl and a colony of bees reunite man and nature, or is the split irreversible?

Block nature out, and she'll force a way in.

Great Story and Unique World....plus BEES

I really enjoyed the world Jean Gill created for this story. The detachment from nature within a fantasy setting was well done. The characters were well written giving them a believable life; even the villains were real people filled with justified actions within their reality. Any author who can make the bad guys just guys has done their job well. I have a personal fondness for bees so of course I was interested in this book and I loved how the main character and the bees intertwined. You can tell that she knows her bees as she writes about them.

The narrator did a good job bringing distinct voices to all the characters.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Sci-Fi Fantasy Flight of Fun!

I received this audiobook free at my request and am leaving this review voluntarily.

Queen of the Warrior Bees is an outstandingly fun fantasy ride into the forbidden forest with Mielitta. Great pacing and writing by Jean Gill combined with fantastic narration from Jannie Meisberger gives the listeners everything they could want and more. The characters in this feel so real, and their motivations relatable. I'm looking forward to much more in this series!
