Eugenie has spilled plenty of fey blood in her time, but this enemy is shrewd, subtle, and nursing a very personal grudge. And the men in her life aren t making things any easier. Her boyfriend Kiyo is preoccupied with his pregnant ex, and sexy fey king Dorian always poses a dangerous distraction. With or without their help, Eugenie must venture deep into the Otherworld and trust in an unpredictable power she can barely control. Reluctant queen or not, Eugenie has sworn to do her duty–even if it means facing the darkest–and deadliest–side of her nature…
I had been looking forward to the follow up of Storm Born for quiet some time, so I was surprised when I didn’t like it more than I did. Don’t get me wrong it was still good but I couldn’t put Storm Born down. It might have had something to do with reading it right after Shiver and Destined For An Early Grave. Two great books!
If Eugenie thought she had problems in the first book then she’s in for a big surprise. She goes through some very hard things in this one and you can’t help but feel heartbroken for her. And all this happens while she is learning how to use and control her powers.
I very much love Dorian even if he does get a little “Let’s take over the world.” crazy sometimes. He still makes me think Kiyo who?
Thorn Queen seems to be a stepping stone book of sorts. Something she had to go to to get to the next chapter of her life. All in all I enjoyed this one and I have a feeling that the next installment will be even better. 4 Stars!
