#BookReview for The Rogue Queen (The Hundredth Queen, #3) by @Emily_R_King #Giveaway

Synopsis: Despite the odds, Kalinda has survived it all: Marriage to a tyrant. Tournaments to the death. The forbidden power to rule fire. The icy touch of a demon.

That same demon now disguises itself as Rajah Tarek, Kalinda’s late husband and a man who has never stopped haunting her. Upon taking control of the palace and the army, the demon brands Kalinda and her companions as traitors to the empire. They flee across the sea, seeking haven in the Southern Isles.

In Lestari, Kalinda’s powers are not condemned, as they are in her land. Now free to use them to protect those she loves, Kalinda soon realizes that the demon has tainted her with a cold poison, rendering her fire uncontrollable. But the lack of control may be just what she needs to send the demon back to the darkest depths of the Void.

To take back the empire, Kalinda will ally with those she distrusts—and risk losing those most loyal to her—to defeat the demon and bring peace to a divided nation.

My Review: This one picks up where book two left off.  To start off this one really reminded me of parts of the Throne of Glass series.  They are going into a cove with a breaker just like what is in the Pirates cove in a few of the TOG books.  As well as a man who doesn't know his father which is also in the TOG books. I really liked the similarities of the two stories.  

The pacing of this one was just as fast as book two.  It's really speeding along.  I do will say that what was going on with Kalinda and Ashwin was kind of predictable to me. Which when I first figured out what was going on I was a little bummed but once things started heating up I was yelling at them NO NO!!! Because of corse I knew why they were doing certain things but they didn't.  So in the end knowing before hand what was happening and why really worked out.  It raised the suspense and really just made me want to hop into the book and like slap them both to make them stop. 

Kalinda in this one has really come into her own. She knows what she wants by the end of this story and really understands what she wants to bring to the empire.  As for Ashwin I really enjoyed his parts of the story and he as well has grown.  He isn't so much of a fluffy little boy anymore and is really starting to take the lead on being a ruler.  As for Deven I didn't like parts of his POV as much as I did in book two.  I do still love the man with all my heart but parts of his POV just seemed a little flat to me.  

Another part of this story that I really thought was wonderful is that the author didn't try and have Kalinda stop the multiple wives and courtesans things.  I thought she was going to bring it up or have Ashwin say he only wants Kalinda but they never did.  I think that really brings a lot of culture and way of life to this story.  That just because it's not how we do things. We should still respect how things are done in other places.  

The third installment of The Hundredth Queen series will leave you grasping for you heart and gives new understanding what it means for good to fight evil.
