“King treats the readers to stunning descriptions of Kalinda and her sister warriors’ characters, even giving villains redeeming traits and hints of sympathy. A descriptive action-packed fantasy in a vivid world…” —Kirkus Reviews
“…The most poignant and important parts of this novel are the relationships that blossom and grow. If you’re a fan of The Hundredth Queen, rest assured that The Fire Queen is definitely its equal. It’s just as fascinating, heartbreaking, and exciting…” —Hypable
“A great follow-up to the series. King writes with such a vivid detail that the imagery of The Fire Queen is stunningly real. The world she created is both extremely dangerous and invitingly beautiful. You will be drawn into this world of fantasy with ease and it holds your attention till the very end.” —Fresh Fiction

1. The first book emphasized that tournaments had been done away with for years and Tarek was unique in reinstating them. Throughout this book we get the Sultan's political motivations for wanting a marriage of his daughter to Ashwin but his motives for instating a tournament, something that all but a corrupted Tarek had seen as detrimental, as the means to do so is not so clear. There appears to have been the potential for another corrupting influence/object but I never picked up if that was the case. If the Sultan was just a horrible man his own country would have been in likely the same poor state Tarek's was but that wasn't the case.
2. The love triangle with Ashwin. It seemed like the author was going out of her way to make people like him. Now, I theorize Kali's rejection will have consequences in the next book but with what plot I had it seemed unnecessary.
3. I was a bit disappointed in the last fight. Kali we have to assume has battle experience her opponent did not because nothing indicated the princess had actually fought anyone. Kali also has experience fighting with her bhuta powers suppressed. Granted her opponent was a bhuta this time, but Kali should have been able to use her opponent's arrogance against her and kick ass without burner powers which would only increase her prestige and help to later bridge the gap with her people. After being told it takes hours to bleed the suppression poison out she shouldn't have been able to do it in moments. I was rooting for a Kali that triumphed without her magic and she should have been able to considering her experience as well as her opponent's arrogance and inexperience.
Although book one drew me in this one did it better. You can tell how much the author has matured as a writer and man I couldn't put this one down! I really loved reading about Kali and her friends once again and I love how much she has grown as a character.
Kalinda and Captain Deven Naik are still going on with their simmering romance that I really hope we get even more of. I love that it wasn't really love at first sight and that it did take a little while for them to fall for each other.
The world that the author has created was wonderful in this one we get to see so much more of the empire than we did in book one and I hope that continues into book three.
This one has a lot of twists, turns, and a few surprises that you just don't know what is really going on and who you can trust. The Bhuta powers in this one worked out even better than book one and man o man you will be at the edge of your seat I know I was.
I really loved where this story is going and I can't wait to see what we get in book three coming out this Feb.
One thing I will say that this one did not suffer from the normal book two's it was engaging and fantastic!
I was hooked from the very beginning until the end. Kalinda really starts coming into her own with her abilities in this story. She becomes more powerful. The story is told back in forth from Kalinda and Devin's point of view so you get more of a feel of more than one person's point of perspective in the story, which IMO I find more drawn into.
There are a lot of surprises in store for you when you read this. Emily King has done a fabulous job of ramping it up. As far as I'm concerned she knocked this one out of the park. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for Rogue Queen. Thanks Ms. King for sharing this one what a great ride.~A Faithful Reader
