    3.5 stars A super dramatic finish to the series, with some expected outcomes, both happy and sad.Overall I still think the first book, The Impostor Queen, is probably my favourite of the three, but as a whole the series is quite good.

    You can find this review and others at arctic booksI read the first novel in this trilogy, THE IMPOSTOR QUEEN, last year, and I absolutely adored it. Continuing into the second and third books, I am again incredibly impressed by Sarah Fine’s storytelling skills and unbeatable imagination when it comes to magic, fantasy, and political intrigue.THE TRUE QUEEN brings both the characters Elli and Ansa together in this action-packed finale. I loved ...

    *Source* Library*Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*The True Queen is the third and final installment in author Sarah Fine's The Imposter Queen trilogy. The True Queen tells the story of both Elli and Ansa simultaneously, unlike the first two books, switching point of views seamlessly and alternating from one to the other in current time. If you haven't read the first two books, then I will be careful not to spoil anything that happ...

    The True Queen by Sarah Fine is the final book of three total books in The Impostor Queen series, and it truly leaves no stone unturned. The True Queen is the most brutal and most relentless of the series by far, continuing upon previous tradition with The Cursed Queen (book 2), and its unforgiving and determined warpath by the Krigere horde against those who live comfortably in the surrounding city-states. The True Queen tells the story of both ...

    3.5 starsCan’t believe I finished this in one day. Phew. What a journey. I’m so glad that I got to reunite with Elli after not seeing her for a book. I feel like she’s such a strong character, though I liked her better in the Imposter Queen, mostly because she sometimes acted like a brat here, always to Raimo, who was nothing but supportive and kind and didn’t deserve that treatment. But I’m so glad I got to see her again, she makes the...

    I'm really glad I read this series. It definitely had some problems (sorry to say, I'm not a fan of first person or present tense so both in the same book was not great for me), but it also surprised me, subverted my expectations, and made me truly feel for Elli and Ansa and what they went through. I loved the unique premise, even if the world could have been fleshed out a bit more in my opinion. Right now, I'm actually ready for a sequel series ...

    YAY, what a thrilling and satisfying conclusion to the Impostor Queen series! The prophecy of the most powerful Valtia (Queen) has come true. However, it is shared between two, Elli who has been groomed to rule the Kupari kingdom her entire life, and Ansa, a fierce Krigere warrior. (Did they remind anyone else of Sansa and Arya?)Both of them share an unwavering loyalty to their people. They also have a shared enemy – a manipulative, bloodthirst...

    So when I first read "The Imposter Queen" I was like "what if the Valtia out there and Elli end up together!?!?" That was my OTP at the end of "The Imposter Queen." Obviously "The Cursed Queen" came out and they were both neatly parired off with relationships I both liked a lot going into "The True Queen." At about 25% (view spoiler)[Thyra dies, and I was like "ok great, bury your gays" (hide spoiler)] but I was like but what if (view spoiler)[ O...

    I've enjoyed this series from the start and was looking forward to the last book. I'm desperate for more f/f stories, especially in genre fiction. But WHOAH there was a massive disappointment that came out of nowhere and completely ruined my view of the series: (view spoiler)[Partway through this book, one of the girls in the f/f ship DIES. FOR GOOD. Are you kidding me?! I am so sick of the Bury Your Gays trope. Can't a queer person pick up a boo...

    I really loved the first two books in this series, and although I enjoyed this one, I didn't like it as much as the previous two. This might be due to the fact that I was reading it on a day when I was staying home sick, but also this is the first book in the series with multiple narrators, and it was difficult for me to keep the two story lines straight as the narrative voices were very similar. I also felt like the ending of this story dragged ...

    I read this book because I enjoyed the first one, thought the second was OK, and at that point figured I was invested enough to find out how things turned out. However, I wasn't invested enough to reread the first two, which meant that I had very little memory of the many, many secondary characters, which might have reduced the impact a bit. Also, things turned out almost exactly as anticipated, with a couple twists in the middle. The pacing was ...

    This was a book I had been waiting for. I was sadly disappointed! When I invest in 3 books I do not want to end up crying throughout the book and feel hollow by the end. I just felt that this book left me with nothing to be joyful about for the characters I invested in. I am not a person who needs all happiness, I love a tragedy but not all heartbreak and my soul feeling empty by the end. The writing was beautiful and I got what was being portray...

    This book was moderately good. Sarah Fine never fails to create strong female protagonists. It was definitely a good way to spend my weekend; however, this series is a slight disappointment compared to Fine’s other series, Guards of the Shadowlands (which is a must read).

    Before reading......Can't wait for this to come out. One thing I wonder is who's p.o.v it will be in since book 1 was Elli and 2 was Ansa. As much as I love Oskar and Elli; and Thyra and Ansa, I'm kind of hoping that Ansa and Elli will leave the one they love for each other since they are each half of the Valtia. The Valtia is a queen yes, but it's also about the magic of fire and ice and with it the balance. Ansa has the power with no balance(wi...
