#BookReview for The Fire Queen (The Hundredth Queen, #2) by @Emily_R_King #Giveaway

Synopsis: In the second book in The Hundredth Queen Series, Emily R. King once again follows a young warrior queen’s rise to meet her destiny in a richly imagined world of sorcery and forbidden powers.

Though the tyrant rajah she was forced to marry is dead, Kalinda’s troubles are far from over. A warlord has invaded the imperial city, and now she’s in exile. But she isn’t alone. Kalinda has the allegiance of Captain Deven Naik, her guard and beloved, imprisoned for treason and stripped of command. With the empire at war, their best hope is to find Prince Ashwin, the rajah’s son, who has promised Deven’s freedom on one condition: that Kalinda will fight and defeat three formidable opponents.

But as Kalinda’s tournament strengths are once again challenged, so too is her relationship with Deven. While Deven fears her powers, Ashwin reveres them—as well as the courageous woman who wields them. Kalinda comes to regard Ashwin as the only man who can repair a warring world and finds herself torn between her allegiance to Deven and a newly found respect for the young prince.

With both the responsibility to protect her people and the fate of those she loves weighing heavily upon her, Kalinda is forced again to compete. She must test the limits of her fire powers and her hard-won wisdom. But will that be enough to unite the empire without sacrificing all she holds dear?

My Review: First off you really do need to read book one of this before this one.  However if you decide to jump into this one without reading book one.  I think the author did a wonderful job giving us an update on what happened in book one.  She didn't over do it and did it just enough to remind you of the key points of what happened in the first title.  

This story was very well done.  I do think that there is one part of this where Kalinda is in a cave and there's something else down there with her.  I really hope that we find out what it was.  I really thought that maybe it was a dragon that was going to come out of hiding and jump in and save her but that never happened.  So much stuff happens in this story and the flow of it was so good. I was up until 2am to finish it and the it left me on a slight cliffhanger and I really wanted to start the next book but of course I fell asleep before that happened.  

I really loved how Kalinda was torn between keeping her throne and doing what she wanted.  It felt very real and genuine with how she felt and how she was dealing with the aftermath of book one.  This is one of those stories where you will be flipping the pages faster and faster.  

I asked Emily R. King last night about Kalinda and how in the world she embodied the Dragon Queen from Game of Thrones and she told me she doesn't watch it at all. So that was a big shocker. Because fans of the Danny will totally fall in love with Kalinda in this title.  She is fierce as all get out and OMG I love her so much!! 
I really did enjoy having Deven's POV in this one however parts of it early on just kind of rubbed me the wrong way.  I know that Deven had it in his head that he was disgraced but how could he loose faith in Kali so fast?  On the other hand I know how it feels to doubt yourself and in this stance he was doing that more than really losing faith with Kali.  But I really wished that would have come out on the page.  I feel so sorry for Deven in this story to start out with.  

Duty and Love war in this second installment of The Hundredth Queen series set in a vivid world you are sure to fall for this thrilling adventure! ~CrossroadReviews
