The world building of The Queen's Curse is brilliant. The comparison of life between the countries of the law-bound land of Caertas and the tyrannical, magical land of Dochas is quite vivid. The quest that the Queen, Artride, and her bodyguard, Tirsa, undertake to seek assistance from the sorceress Sempervirens, leads them to become heroes to the people of Dochas as well as Caertas by the end of the story. The love story between the two women builds up slowly as they travel and face obstacles along their journey. It proceeds at a natural pace, rather than happening in an instant as is so prevalent in lesbian fiction today.
I recommend this book to anyone with a heart for love stories and an imagination for fantasy quest tales. You won’t be disappointed with The Queen’s Quest.
I think her imagination is wonderful and she created some truly beautiful images. She allowed things to grow and didn't rush things that needed space. The connection between the women was believably strong by the end and they were sweet and caring. This book surprised me on more than one occasion, taking turns I didn't see coming and I really enjoy that in a book.
So I think Hellenthal has a lot of promise and a great imagination. I definitely think she'll get better and better. This one as I said could have used some editing here and there and some sections could have been tightened up. But all that is stuff that will improve with time. If you're a fan of lesbian fantasy and romance you could enjoy this.
The heroine is a fun character, strong, temperamental, heroic, hot tempered and impatient; in short she will go over well with YA audiences. The fact that she is the first knight and commander to be a woman makes her a historically interesting character. Her dry wit and ability to be such a compelling, believable action figure had me turning the pages eager for more.
I thought the period detail was also handled very well, from details regarding guards, knights, the queen, life in and around the cancel. But most of all, the heroine and the story as a whole was a ton of fun. Sometimes the author can get everything right, and still somehow end up with a story that’s not as energetic or as engaging as it could be. I’m delighted to say that isn’t the case here.
On the other hand, the author does write a good story. I thoroughly enjoyed the history of the Law Book, and thought the premise thoroughly original. The two protagonist's backstories were well fleshed out, and created sympathetic characters that the reader wished to see succeed. I enjoyed the Windchildren and Woodchildren very much, as well as the gods of the magical land. Sempervirens was a captivating villain as well, and I thought the author handled her quite well.
All in all, it's a decent one-time read.
