“The Hundredth Queen is a bewitching story of women staying strong in a world ruled by men.”
I love this book! It is a good introduction into this fantasy world and I am betting each book in the series will become richer in it’s world building and characters.
Summary | Goodreads
What I love most about this story isn’t the romance which is so cute but friendship and struggles of these women. Kalinda is passionate and scared but she is still brave! She tries and fight for the future of herself and others.
I don’t want to give too much away since this is spoil free but the reasons I couldn’t give it a full five stars was because of the insta-love between the her and Deven, the Captain of the Guard. Lastly, I thought it was a wonderful story but the world could have been more developed when it comes to the magic system.
With all of that being said I have high hopes for the second book! I am expecting more world building, a better explanation of the magic system, and more character development. Overall, this is a strong first book into this fantasy series. I highly recommend it.
