Summary

In the second book in The Hundredth Queen Series, Emily R. King once again follows a young warrior queen's rise to meet her destiny in a richly imagined world of sorcery and forbidden powers.

Though the tyrant rajah she was forced to marry is dead, Kalinda's troubles are far from over. A warlord has invaded the imperial city, and now she's in exile. But she isn't alone. Kalinda has the allegiance of Captain Deven Naik, her guard and beloved, imprisoned for treason and stripped of command. With the empire at war, their best hope is to find Prince Ashwin, the rajah's son, who has promised Deven's freedom on one condition: that Kalinda will fight and defeat three formidable opponents.

But as Kalinda's tournament strengths are once again challenged, so too is her relationship with Deven. While Deven fears her powers, Ashwin reveres them - as well as the courageous woman who wields them. Kalinda comes to regard Ashwin as the only man who can repair a warring world and finds herself torn between her allegiance to Deven and a newly found respect for the young prince.

With both the responsibility to protect her people and the fate of those she loves weighing heavily upon her, Kalinda is forced again to compete. She must test the limits of her fire powers and her hard-won wisdom. But will that be enough to unite the empire without sacrificing all she holds dear?

Fantastic

I’ve loved this book, it brought more of the adventures which began in book 1 and carried them on! We had a wonderful addition of male characters adding to the story. Off to buy book 3!!!

Second speeker is freaking anoying


This is a good story, but destroyed by male speeker, introduced in book two. The voice of the male main character pronounces ALL character names completely different from the main narrative (female) voice. This a hibsy's annoying. And causing me to just annoy over the book, instead of following the story.

Fire queen audio issues

I like the story behind this series but had a problem with this recording as it introduced a male voice for the male character but the female reader and male reader did not pronounce half of the names of persons and places the same way.

Love this series!

Great story with complex characters. I️ love that this story is not predictable.
My only complaint is that the two narrators did not pronounce names the same way. It was confusing at times. The Narrators’ voices were great but pronounced the lead character’s name differently.
This story has romance and plenty of action. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Split Narration is Confusing

the split narrative had potential, but was completely ruined by the fact that the new narration for Devin seemed unable to pronounce the names of every other character in the book. Do these narrators even listen to each other?

The male narrator is...

not great. His voice is fine, but he pronounces nearly all of the names, places, and unique words differently than the female narrator. The lack of consistency was very jarring, and I eventually just stopped listening to the male narrator entirely and just read the book for those chapters. Otherwise, the story was really intriguing and enjoyable, and the female narrator is as good as she was in the first book.

Second Narrator Mispronounces Callie’s Name - ugh!

I enjoyed this second installment even more than the first. BUT, the book adds a second narrator - a male - and he mispronounces the main character’s name the entire book as well as mispronouncing the bad guy’s name. EVERY single time he said Callie’s name wrong my mind did a double-take - it was excruciating. And it makes me mad that the director/producer or whoever didn’t fix it. I would think telling a narrator how to pronounce names would be a priority. Grrrrrrrr

Oh no!

Why oh why! Of course, that was going to happen. 😡 Okay soo… the good the bad & the ugly. Those perfectly describe The Fire Queen. Action & intrigue from beginning to end!

I kinda like Deven, I just haven't really bonded with him for some reason. But I adore the Prince! He really came into himself quickly after discovering his new rank.

Great world building & descriptions. The Cobra gives me shudders. 😱 Excellent narration. I really liked the male narrator.

What can I say about the ending? Gah!!!

My star ratings include these 5 elements:
1★ story line
1★ engaging characters
1★ use of world building/descriptive
1★ being well edited or narrated
1★ the ending

Another Journey

The performer has such a calm soft voice it nearly lulled me to sleep. Good to see what's next for Kali.
