It was ok but I expected much more of Michelle Pillow, but I will continue to but her books as just this one is weak-the rest of her books have always been strong and very entertainig.
Is his happiness ended?
Julian knows of her foolishness but will her husband find the way to free her from her prison of stone.??
More will there is a story of brother Thomas or Merricks brothers ??
And then the worst happened. Juliana and her unborn child turned to stone - literally. Through a spell of her own making, Juliana has imprisoned herself, and it is up to Merrick to break the spell. With his kingdom at war with another, and treachery afoot, Merrick's task seems impossible, even to the King of the Unblessed.
In Michelle M. Pillow's new novel, Realm Immortal, Book 3: Stone Queen, we return to the story of King Merrick of the Unblessed and his Queen Juliana, which began in the first Realm Immortal story, King of the Unblessed (Realm Immortal). When many authors would have been satisfied with a pat little happy ending for a couple, Pillow revisits them with a realistic approach to love and relationships, proving by example to her readers that `Happy Ever Afters' do not just happen, they must be worked for and maintained. Relationships wither away without the proper care, and even the most powerful love can be tainted if not tended to.
And yet the author again brings us to a happy ending for our couple in distress, leaving their marriage stronger for the trials they have suffered along the way. As Merrick and Juliana find their way back to each other's arms, they learn to communicate more effectively, to love deeper, and to listen to their hearts and each other above all others. Through it all, more than just their own relationship is repaired, and new bonds are forged in a time of great need. But the cost of these acts is still to be discovered, paving the way for the next installment in this continuously fascinating series. I am waiting with bated breath...
King of the Unblessed (Realm Immortal)
Faery Queen: Realm Immortal Book Two (Realm Immortal)
Stone Queen (Realm Immortal)
Instead we start out back again with Juliana's brothers, Thomas loosing his sparkle and zest as he bends under the burden of assuming Bellemare from Hugh, and Hugh suffering from guilt, feeling that he is responsible for Juliana's retreat from the world but also witnessing the perks of his new role as Faery King. Even though it was nice to see Tania again and while I realize that the whole point was fitting in a bit more sex into the story -- because the leads weren't in the position to do much in that department -- that scene was a side trip and felt pasted in, unlike the previous books where the love scenes really fit into plot and moved the story forward.
Still I liked the Stone Queen. The parts with Merrick were emotionally powerful and the portions with Lucien and Mia are interesting as always, as we continue to get glimpses of the gray that Lucien keeps hidden beneath his black exterior. The intriguing transformation for Mia to Ari has my curiosity peaked and will have me buying the next book just to see where Pillow takes Ari in the future. I also want to see more of Ean, and Kalen and all the others that have sacrificed for Merrick and Juliana's happiness - because happiness in the Realm Immortal only comes at a high cost.
