Reviews The Rogue Queen (The Hundredth Queen, #3)

  • Ben Alderson
    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!
  • Amy Leigh
    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...

    ***** 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...

    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...

    "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...

  • Aneta Bak
    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...

    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 ...
  • Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
    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...
  • Johanna
    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 ...
  • Rebecca
    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...

  • Dirty Dayna
    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 ...
  • Esmay
    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...

  • Kirsty (Amethyst Bookwyrm)
    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...

    *ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*Emily R. King never fails to deliver. Action-packed, magical, powerful, and made me proud to be woman.My review will be divided into two categories, a spoiler free and a spoiler-y one after it.

    "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....
  • The Clever Reader
    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 ...
  • Hypable Books
    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...
  • Cathy
    The Rogue Queen was a breath of fresh air in the Hundredth Queen series! Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the first two books very much. But they were also very similar, with the tournaments and the drama between girls vying for the same man.Book three threw the tournaments out the window and focused solely on the fate of the Tarachand Empire. With the demon disguised as Rajah Tarek headed towards the capital, Kali, Deven, and Ashwin are rushing to ...

    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.
  • JLP
    This book was beyond amazing! I can't wait for the fourth book in the series. When Jessica asked me to review this for her I thought na I am not going to like this one but man three books in and I am hooked!!! This is one series that grows on you as you read it. Kalinda is a kick-ass main character and I love her to bits. I can't wait to see what King does with her for the last book and I am really sad to see it all end. Go Into This One Knowing:...
  • Sarah Aston
    A very gripping book! Keeps me on the edge of my seat and hanging for more. I usually don't like love triangles that are in every YA book, but this one just pulls me in! This is a great series and would recommened to anyone who likes reading YA books!

    The first book in the series was the best. This one was ok, but put downable.
