From the Editor

I don’t fall for characters easily, but it didn’t take long for the woman at the heart of The Hundredth Queen to captivate me. At the start of the story, Kalinda is a humble orphan who suffers mysterious fevers and wants nothing more than a quiet, cloistered life of peace and safety in the mountain temple of the Sisterhood. Then a powerful monarch with ninety-nine wives arrives, seeking just one more. Surprising everyone, he chooses Kalinda.

But before they can be married, an ancient law demands that the wives and courtesans must battle in a bombastic tournament that pits them against each other in a deadly competition for power in the rajah’s sprawling court. To be chosen as a queen, it turns out, is hardly a gift, but as Kalinda rises from life as a sickly and powerless ward to topple an empire, she radiates an inspiring charm that I simply could not resist.

In fact, Kalinda is so charismatic that I would probably follow her to the grocery store, but thankfully, debut author Emily R. King’s story plays out in a richly imagined fantasy world. Cinematic in its settings, vivid in its magic, tender in its romance, and sinister in its central contest (imagine The Hunger Games for women in saris with ancient weapons), the new world in which Kalinda must fight for her life is as easy to get lost in as it is difficult to forget.

One author writes a story, but it takes a team to make a book, and it wasn’t long after we started working on this one that we all began ending our emails with “Viva Kalinda!” Join us?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“King’s debut is built on a solid premise that draws on Sumerian mythology for inspiration…The tale maintains a consistent thread as King embarks on a deep examination of sisterhood, first between Kali and her best friend Jaya, and later when she must fight the rajah’s other wives to keep her place within the palace.” Publishers Weekly

The Hundredth Queen plunges readers into a fantasy world full of love, betrayal, rebellion, and magic.” Deseret News

“King writes multiple strong female characters, led by Kalinda, who has the loyalty and bravery of spirit to defend her friends even if that means facing death. Strong characterization, deep worldbuilding, page-turning action scenes and intrigue, as well as social commentary, make this book stand out. This outing opens a trilogy; readers will be eager to get their hands on the next installment.” Kirkus Reviews

“This lush and lovely first novel brings a beautiful and brutal culture to life. The ending is left open for sequels, and readers will eagerly follow Kalinda and Deven on their future adventures.” Booklist

“Filled with many action-packed sequences, forbidden romance, and unexpected surprises, this debut fantasy will appeal to teens who enjoy epic dramas with strong female characters.” School Library Journal

“A gripping plot with twists and turns, a unique setting, and strong female characters—a solid foray into the fantasy romance genre.” VOYA

“This book is definitely a page-turner…” —Teenreads

The Hundredth Queen is a culturally rich tale of both self-discovery and self-mastery. Emily R. King transports readers to a lush and fascinating world where our heroine, Kalinda, pitted against hardened and clever antagonists, embraces her weaknesses and follows her heart. King leaves you wondering, ‘What happens next?’” —Charlie N. Holmberg, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Paper Magician Series

“Richly imagined and gracefully written, The Hundredth Queen is a vibrant tale of forbidden love and personal sacrifice.” —Becky Wallace, author of The Keepers’ Chronicles
