The plot and story itself are very intriguing and certainly kept my interest piqued. I fear going into too much detail regarding the plot and characters, as I truly don’t want to give away too much – this is one of those books that I feel is best read with little knowledge of the plot; it’s much more fun to discover it yourself. I also loved the medieval setting that simply screams ‘fantasy’ and makes you feel warm and at home in a great new fantasy world.
I can easily say, however, that the balance between romance and other plot points is wonderfully well done. Romance in some fantasy novels often overtake the rest of the conflicts and add in too much unrealistic ‘insta-love,’ but fortunately Gardner avoided this by not making the sole focus of the story be the romantic interest. Instead, she embodies the use of a strong female character, Marriah, who braves a variety of adventures and struggles her way through her own personal battles.
The biggest and most unfortunate aspect of this book that detracted from my enjoyment were the various grammatical, formatting, and occasionally awkward dialogue. The structure is also a bit hit-and-miss at times, which sometimes interrupts the flow of the story. I believe that if these issues were taken care of, then this would be a much more enjoyable novel.
Overall, I am giving Servant Queen three-and-a-half stars. I definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for a great, classic-seeming fantasy read!
