Review: The Hundredth Queen


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.

Review:

Heart-pounding. Intriguing. Exciting. Stunning. Swoon-worthy. These are only some of the adjectives to describe this lovely book, The Hundredth Queen. If you don’t have this book on your TBR, you are totally losing out!

I enjoyed this book SO much. The main character, Kalinda is so fearless, strong and smart. I love following her along this story. The plot is super fun and suspenseful. Everything is mapped out so well. The romance is also just too sweet. The only thing I had trouble with, is that I found The Hundredth Queen a bit too similar to The Wrath and Dawn. But the great thing is, many aspects are different and The Hundredth Queen has its only special elements.

I also thoroughly enjoyed all the twists and turns and all the secrets that are revealed in the plot. I totally saw some of them coming, but some of them totally took me by surprise. I can’t wait for the sequel!
