AAAH this book is by far my favorite of the three books, only due to the character growth which Montes went through. I rarely keep on reading books which have a hero that doesn’t appeal to me, however the smooth writing by the author, the drama and the heroine kept me engrossed and wanting to read. In this book , Montes managed to make the book, he was the star. In book 1, the king Montes wasn’t my ideal hero, he was weak, vain and selfish. By book 3, Montes was everything a hero should be.
Reading The Queen of All That Lives, nothing went the way I thought it would after the cliffhanger of book 2. By 49% I thought I had everything figured out and was certain of my theories as to the resolution of the conflict, I just kept on reading to see how the author will take us there; however nothing was like I predicted it to be, the author added a few twists that I wasn’t expecting. The second half of the book kept me glued to the pages.
The only reason I didn’t rate this 5 stars is due to the repetitive inner thoughts of our protagonists, I would have liked more dialogue as I really enjoyed the banter between Serenity and Montes. When I first started the series, Montes and Serenity were not a couple I was rooting for, their dysfunctional relationship had me doubting a HEA. The series went on and I fell in love with their dynamics, the mistrust, love, hate and obsession.
“Serenity?” I glance over at him. “I was lying. You don’t get a choice. I’ll give you five minutes to change, and then whatever state of dress you’re in, my men will bring you to me.” He’s so lucky I don’t have a gun..
This has been quite an entertaining series, the journey to the last book has been nothing but fun. I would love a spin-off book about a certain character, just saying!
