#Hodgepodge: First Chapter Review with @cosplayandbooks for The Hundredth Queen by @Emily_R_King



Welcome to this weeks Hodgepodge post! Each week will be totally different and we hope that you enjoy these! On these days with me (Rachael), you'll be getting a first chapter review. I want to cut down on TBR pile and I thought the best way would be reading the first chapter of the book and deciding from there if I want to keep it or get rid of it.





The Hundredth Queen (The Hundredth Queen, #1)

About the Book: 

He wanted a warrior queen. He got a revolutionary.


As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.



But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.



Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.
