When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron.Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life.

Reviews The Queen's Rising

  • Emily May
    I hate giving one star to any book, especially those that didn't particularly piss me off or anything like that, but I just didn't enjoy The Queen's Rising one little bit. I think I almost died of boredom.It feels derivative of many other YA fantasy books but that alone isn't the problem - a lot of YA fantasy authors retell the same old recycled premise and some even manage to make it exciting; breathe new life into it with colourful characters o...

    I was super into this for the first bit, then I lost interest and was kind of bored, I found all the secret identities and family dynamics and court intrigues hard to keep track of. Honestly, the last 50 or so pages I ended up skimming because I was ready for it to be done. I had hoped that the dynamics and such would really grip me, but they just didn’t. So it was good, but not great!
  • Brittney ~ Reverie and Ink
    Oooh man. This has some of the loveliest, most visual writing I've ever laid eyes upon. Like... every sentence.... every paragraph... was crafted so perfectly. I feel so inspired. I feel like 90% of the time I come across pretty writing though, the plot is a bit lost. The good news? That isn't the case here. Rebecca Ross managed to create an utterly enchanting world and a rich, unique storyline that had me turning pages nonstop. Brienna is a love...

    Release date: February 6, 2018I've been hoping to find more 2018 YA high fantasy books with all of the elements I love and this was a really enjoyable read! The plot description is pretty accurate, so I don't want to say anything else because that would spoil how everything gets revealed as the story goes. There are a lot of secret identities... everything is kind of predictable, but the fun is definitely in seeing how it all works out. I really ...

    Thank you, HarperCollins, for giving me an e-galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.I had descended from selfish, ambitious blood. And I was Norah Kavanagh's vengeance. I would redeem myself.The Queen's Rising saved me from another frustrating reading slump. I already had high expectations because of the positive reviews written by reliable people on Goodreads, and I am happy to say that this book deserves all of the hype. In fact, ...

    4.5/5 stars!I really enjoyed this one. The writing is rich and luscious, and I couldn't put it down. Minor reservations, but I can't wait for Ross's next work. Full review to come!

    My first book of 2018 and it did not disappoint. Loved it! More to come.
  • Danielle (Life of a Literary Nerd)
    4.25 stars “I am broken, I am treacherous, I am divided…” It’s so good to read fantasy again. It honestly feels like forever since I’ve read a high fantasy novel and I’m so happy being back in this magically captivating genre. The Queen’s Rising really hooked me from the start and took me on a fantastical journey of family, strength, and passion. It was just so good. Things I Liked MAPS! And lineages and lots of fun things at the...
