Upon taking control of the palace and the army, the demon brands Kalinda and her companions as traitors to the empire. They flee across the sea, seeking haven in the Southe...

    As usual my review will contain spoilers so stop reading if that bothers you.As I think I mentioned in my review of the second book in this series, I am now hooked. Each book in this series has been better than the last. Kalinda has also gained respect, and power over her abilities in increments over the course of multiple books (not to mention her entire childhood dedicated to training) so at no point do I feel like she suddenly just became powe...

    So, I cried. A lot.This book was action packed from the first page. No slow moments, only action, war, magic and demons. I adore how the Demons really came to life in this book. It reminded me of the Titans in Greek mythology! I love the writing, characters, and storyline. The plot is executed incredibly!

    This book series is completely amazing! You need to read this series! I fell in love with Kalinda's spirit and her soul in the first book and ached to know more through out the rest of the series. I literally could not wait for each book to come out and when they did I read them I was engrossed start to finish.This book was difficult as Kali found herself trying to figure out if she should follow her heart or choose her duty to the throne. This w...

    Smash the patriarchy is right! In the thrilling third installment in The Hundredth Queen series, Kalinda must risk life and love in an attempt to banish the demon disguising itself as Rajah Tarek. This story is filled with action, adventure, and lots of swoony romance that will keep readers on the edge of their seats!Just like the two previous The Hundredth Queen books before it, THE ROGUE QUEEN serves up some serious girl power! Reading these bo...

    ***** 4 Stars *****Cannot be read as a standaloneThe Rogue Queen is the third book in The Hundredth Queen series. I was hoping that this was the last book in the series since my attraction to this series was starting to dwindle. But of course, the series will have another book coming out around August 2018. The story is about Kalinda and her group trying to find a way to destroy the demon disguised as Rajah Tarek. New alliances are made and old d...

    "I am born of the stars, and I will see them shine again"* * 2 / 5 The Rogue Queen does better than the second book; it has moved beyond the "tournament" style plotline of the first two books and tries to tackle a more "epic war" plotline between three opposing forces: Kalinda and her allies, the demon disguised as Rajah Tarek, and the bhuta rebels. I didn't find it particularly interesting, but the pacing, characters, and writing are all general...

    Netgalley #45Many thanks go to Emily King, Skyscape, and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.I have every book in this series. It's very fluidly written. It's also really good on audio. The main female character doesn't always come across as strong as I'd like her to be though. She's really mushy . In fact there is just about as much romance in these books as there is adventure. I'm not much on love stories...

    Nothing will ever make me forgive this ending!Seriously! What the f*!The only good thing about this book was in my opinion the cover. It's gorgeous! The rest? Not so much.Starting with the first book I grew more and more annoyed with Kali and to a lesser degree Deven this book only made it worse. But that is nothing compared to the ending!!!!!(view spoiler)[ So, let me get this straight. Kali doesn't want to be one of several wives of a dude but ...

    I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.The Rogue Queen is the third addition to The Hundredth Queen Series and it was pretty freaking amazing! I think I'm falling even more with Kalinda and her feisty ass spirit. I really liked her character growth throughout this book too and I found the soul fire even more interesting. At the beginning (ish) she's basically fighting for her life and dying because she ...

    I am really loving this series! For some reason I was thinking that this was the last book, but no. Again I am left with my heart hanging because the ending? Ugh!!Absolutely nothing comes easy for Kalinda. Her whole life has been one struggle after another. It seems like for Kalinda, along with her little band of friends, there is no break, no chance to relax and no time to breathe. Which is equally awesome and exhausting as a reader as well. The...

    My review is somewhat tainted:I have been reading these books for the last year and it was always marketed as a trilogy. As I reached the closing chapters, I quickly realized there was NO WAY this ending could complete the story. Much to my dismay, I learned there had been a fourth book added sometime in the last few months. I understand that life happens and authors are unable to complete a story within the allotted frame. My advice - Don't mark...

    This book had me hooked right from the first page. There is action from beginning to end.Rajah Tarek has risen from the dead, only its not really him. A demon from the void, released by Prince Ashwin poses as his deceased father. In order for the demon to be free to release his master, he must make Ashwin's wish come true, which is of him ruling over their kingdom. With the demon posing as Rajah Tarek, no one will listen to Ashwin and Kalinda. As...

    The beginning and end were very good. The middle dragged terribly. But I think the last one will be exciting because it'll shift focus to new problem and be more focused on just Kali and Deven.

    My full review can be found here: http://rachels-readings.blogspot.co.u...This third book in this series did not disappoint me at all - it had action, romance, and a kick-arse MC - everything you need in a book.The ending as well just blew me away - and left me hope that there may be a return to this lovely world in the future.Definitely a series I will recommend.

    3.5 Ashwin Stars Confession: I totally didn’t read book 2…and it totally didn’t even matter!! How is it possible to accidentally skip 300 pages and not notice? Shame me!!! Book 1’s focus was on the tournament of wives/courtesans for the most part Book 3’s focus is on an all out end of the world war where every choice can alter the course of fate. And yet everyone is dying in the war but nothing is gorey or bloody so its oddly easy to ...

    No one can rule your heart, not even the Gods. 3 Stars.I feel like this is kind of a pattern, I loved The Hundreth Queen, but The Fire Queen was not as enjoyable as the first book. Sadly this book was even less enjoyable as The Fire Queen, but it did have some good elements. This one was action packed, which I liked. However I hated the all of a sudden love triangle, while I did understand it. The ending was super shitty and in my opinion was o...

    This one just seemed slow and boring compared to the first two. I found myself wishing for it to end. I’ll read the next book, but this really disappointed me given how much I loved the first two. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Thanks to Netgalley and Skyscape for giving me this book to review.The Rogue Queen is the third book in the fast paced and girl power Hundredth Queen series. This book had the best world building in the series so far and has action, adventure, and romance. While I really liked the friendships in this book, I am so tired of love triangles and I didn’t feel it needed to happen again between Kali, Deven, and Ashwin.Kali is reckless as she does not...

    The story was entertaining enough, however I was surprised that Kali survived through the end of it. At points it sounded as her imminent death was close. Well, I guess it shouldn't have made me feel this way as it's a YA book; for sure the hero can't die.Although, I'm not sure about the end. I feel like it could end there and still have a good enough ending to entice the reader to use their imagination on how the two reunite.

    "Kali is the heart of the new Tarachand. Lose her, and the future is meaningless." Oh how this book gave me feels. Let me just lay it all out for you. THIS WAS BASICALLY THE ECLIPSE OR THE CATCHING FIREOF THE HUNDREDTH QUEEN SERIES. Because it was a huge "who is Kali going to give her heart to" game for like the entire freaking book. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a love triangle, but it did get a bit ridiculous for a while there in the middle....

    I categorize this book as a YA Badass Female Lead Action Fantasy because that is what it is! It is intense from beginning to end and each installment picks up right where the last one ended. I’m so excited we get a fourth book in this series and that we don’t have to wait long for the next one! Also, these covers…I mean (Heart Eye Emoji’s)This book starts you off getting to see another part of the world, the Southern Isles, where Kalinda ...

    Read our full review on Hypable!I need to confess something upfront: I made the mistake of reading The Rogue Queen with the expectation that it was last book of the trilogy. I didn’t even stop to think that there was a chance that this series wasn’t a trilogy just because of the flow of the previous books.My friends, this is not the end. Not even close.The Rogue Queen picks up almost right where The Fire Queen left off, give or take a few day...
