    ah! not me still attracted to luca on the cover. which is honestly the main reason i picked this up. lol. as with the first book, i still havent read/seen ‘the princess bride,’ so i cant make any comments as to how to this compares as a retelling/inspiration. but coming at this from strictly a YA perspective, this is still pretty good. not out of this world amazing, but definitely an improvement from ‘the princess will save you.’ this has everything you could want from a sequel. the expanded wor ah! not me still attracted to luca on the cover. which is honestly the main reason i picked this up. lol. as with the first book, i still havent read/seen ‘the princess bride,’ so i cant make any comments as to how to this compares as a retelling/inspiration. but coming at this from strictly a YA perspective, this is still pretty good. not out of this world amazing, but definitely an improvement from ‘the princess will save you.’ this has everything you could want from a sequel. the expanded world building allows for the story to become more political and nuance. there is a greater focus on characterisation, which luca totally deserved. and the pacing is fast with a very active plot. its all there, but again its nothing new to the genre, nothing i havent read before. so if you enjoyed the first book, then you will for sure enjoy this, because its very much the same, but a bit better. thank you macmillan/tor for the ARC! ↠ 3.5 stars

    *Spoiler free 4.5 stars* After reading The Princess Will Save You, I was absolutely siked to get into the sequel. I was a bit nervous, because the epilogue of Princess kind of came out of left field, and I was wondering where all the chips would fall. Nevertheless, I was looking forward to seeing Ama, Luca, and the rest of the gang be badass again! Trigger warnings: blood, violence This was a wonderful, spectacular conclusion to this duology, and just an amazing book all around. Alright, so you kno *Spoiler free 4.5 stars* After reading The Princess Will Save You, I was absolutely siked to get into the sequel. I was a bit nervous, because the epilogue of Princess kind of came out of left field, and I was wondering where all the chips would fall. Nevertheless, I was looking forward to seeing Ama, Luca, and the rest of the gang be badass again! Trigger warnings: blood, violence This was a wonderful, spectacular conclusion to this duology, and just an amazing book all around. Alright, so you know how in my review of Princess, I was wary of the epilogue and thought it kind of came out of nowhere and I didn't particularly love it? Yeah, well, that epilogue turned out to be what made Queen be as spectacular as it is. I will gladly admit that Henning took this plot point and executed it grandly. Speaking of this, this book is built upon political intrigue, which I was not expecting at all! There is political intrigue upon political intrigue. Princess had a fluffy edge to it, but Queen takes a sharper one. There's more chess pieces of the board, which means there are more moves to make and more blood to be shed. There was so much information being thrown around all the time. I had an alright time of keeping it all straight, and I really enjoyed seeing how these kingdoms, and rulers, where making a claim for power. I also had an easier time keeping track of all the characters in this book. In the first one, the pirates sort of all blended together for me, but everybody in this book was so distinct! I was able to get a strong grasp on their stories and their emotions. Their stories were just as strong as they were in the first one. I loved seeing them again, and I loved seeing where they went. I was also surprised to see certain characters put front and center, and not exactly hating that fact. Still hate it a little bit, because [redacted] is [redacted]. While this book does take a sharper edge, the core of it is still love. Luca and Ama's love for each burns so brightly, and I loved that it was so strong. It feels like a fire burning strong, and it envelopes the whole book. Plus, the love they both hold for their people, and their friends is at the forefront as well. They do what they do because they care, and for me, that's what makes this book so amazing. Also, I loved The Princes Bride Easter eggs! Now, I haven't read or watched The Princess Bride (I know, I know), but I definitely caught one of them and I think connected a character to another! This is such a small thing, but I want to mention it. Ama gets knocked out so often in this book haha. Like, I think at least three times. It's not that I don't think that's not realistic, I'm just worried about her brain! I do not want her to have a serious brain injury! The ending was a tad abrupt, but I honestly really loved it. I felt like encompassed the entire journey of this duology, and I can definitely get on board with more ambiguous endings! Overall, this was a spectacular conclusion and book. Full of high stakes adventures, sword fighting, and brightly burning love, it's an incredible book!

    What an exciting sequel! The Queen Will Betray You is a romping game of cat and mouse where you’re never quite sure who’s the cat and who’s the mouse.

And there is one character in particular I did not expect to grow fond of, but they turned out to be one of the best parts of the book. I would’ve liked a bit more from the epilogue, but overall, it’s a fun read and definitely a strong sequel to this duology. Thank you to TorTeen and NetGalley for the eARC!

    Thanks to the publisher for access to this title in return for a fair review. After deciding to divide and conquer the things they needed to do, Ama, Luca, and friends are headed out to take back their respective kingdoms, with a final goal of reconnecting very soon.

Unfortunately, it seems that everyone else is against them, and they find themselves facing possible war on multiple fronts while also dodging swords, poison, and every power-hungry leader around. Is it even possible for both of them to come out of this alive, let alone get to be together? This was a great 2nd book to a trilogy. There is plenty of action and twists to keep the story moving. Can't wait for the final installment. Perfect for fans of Mary Pearson.

    3.5 stars I liked this second book even better than the first. The short chapter style in the beginning works really well to reel you into this fast-paced story and after that, all the action keeps your attention. I liked that we spent less time travelling than in the first book. In this one we are faced with a lot of political intrigue and machinations, honestly the royals in this world are all crazy, and I think the real villain of the story is revealed. I do wish we had gotten more interaction 3.5 stars I liked this second book even better than the first.

I also really want to see Ama and Koldo build a relationship with Ferdinand. I received an eArk via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The Queen Will Betray You picks up a few days from where the first book left off with Amarande headed back to Its to warn her people about the pending retribution for her actions at the wedding and drum up aid for Luca in his bid to retake his birthright as hair to the Torrance throne. When Amarande returns home she finds not only her long lost mother returned but a boy that could be a mirror image of her father 20 years ago. Not only are the threats at home but abroad as the dowager queen Inés The Queen Will Betray You picks up a few days from where the first book left off with Amarande headed back to Its to warn her people about the pending retribution for her actions at the wedding and drum up aid for Luca in his bid to retake his birthright as hair to the Torrance throne. When Amarande returns home she finds not only her long lost mother returned but a boy that could be a mirror image of her father 20 years ago. Not only are the threats at home but abroad as the dowager queen Inés hasn’t stopped her own plotting for power. Throughout the book there are betrayals, political scheming, and nation changing secrets revealed that change the political landscape while everyone scrambles to claim what they thing is theirs through blood or conquest. I love how many of the characters showed vast growth from book one. That was one of my criticisms from book one was how flat and under developed some of the characters where. Luca being one of the most apparent improvements. Thank goodness he grew a personality beyond just being the kind and trusting love interest. He actually takes action and his own life in his hands. Taillefer has to be one of my favorite characters still. Yah he is a scheming little weasel but he is upfront about who and what he is. He clearly does have good intentions but his upbringing in a household with little to no love, where everyone is an enemy damaged him deeply. He was the most entertains character for sure with his quick whit and snark. The book had very feminist themes, but I feel like they really fell flat when the worst people, committing the worst acts in the book, did so in name of dismantling the patriarchy. Especially when everything was said and done it turns out they where just using feminism as a shield for their own lust for power. I feel like the concept of ageism brought up briefly multiple times when it came to Amarande, Luca, and Taillefer fighting for their birthrights was a much stronger plot line at the end of the day. I was really disappointed in the non ending we got. There are so many plot lines left open with no closure at all. It really feels like it should be a trilogy instead of a duology. I don’t expect every series to end all nice and neat with a bow on top but I do expect the major plot points to be wrapped up. There is no word on a third book anywhere so it seems we will all be left with a make your own adventure situation when it comes to the future of the sand and sky realm. Overall with no shortage of political intrigue, betrayals, and action The Queen Will Betray You is a fast paced read that brings you into a world where nothing is quite what it seems and power is the driving force behind everything.

    I want to thank Macmillan - Tor/ Forge for providing me with an E-arc of "The Queen Will Betray You" by Sarah Henning. I'm a big fan of beautiful covers and fairytale retellings and "The Princess Will Save You" had both. With its release last year I couldn't wait to read it. When I read it I couldn't wait for the second book to come out. Unfortunately I had to wait a whole year for its release. You can imagine how happy I was when I was provided an E-arc for "The Queen Will Betray You".

When I read it I couldn't wait for the second book to come out. Unfortunately I had to wait a whole year for its release. You can imagine how happy I was when I was provided an E-arc for "The Queen Will Betray You". Since I just finished the book I was reading I could start immediately with "The Queen Will Betray You". The books are a feminist spin on "The Princess Bride" and I love how Sarah made Amaranda a strong and badass main character and I fell in love with her again in this book. The book picks up right where "The Princess Will Save You" left off. Amaranda and Luca have set up a plan to secure both their kingdoms. But plans never go as they are planned. The book starts strong and full of action making me fear it would lead into a slump afterwards. But the book is packed with action and keeps you at the edge of your seat. It's the first time I dare to say I loved the sequel more. Most of the book Amaranda and Luca are not together. This results in less romance, but with the hanging treat of a war there is a lot more adventure and political intrigue in the book. In this book Amaranda is not alone in her quest to prove that a woman can rule on their own. We get power hungry women, who are also frustrated with old rules and habits that hold them down and prevent them from ruling. You understand their frustration and their drive to prove themselves. I loved how this subject was woven into the story and was actually the base of the whole book. The ending is amazing and thinking it was a duology I was surprised the ending was relatively open. But after some digging I found out we are getting a third book called "The king will kill you"! I've rated this book ★★★★ (4 stars). "The Queen Will Betray You" will be released on July 6th. 2021.

    ARC provided by Edelweiss: I am not sure how I feel at this point. I really enjoyed being with these characters again. Although it’s a bit cheesy at times, I think that’s also what makes it fun to read. It is princess bride-esk, cheese is part of it. But.... the ending wasn’t as satisfying as I would like it to be. If there’s a third one then I take this back, but from what I’ve seen there’s no info on a third book. I’m a bit bummed, there’s more that could happen in this story.

    I don't think I've ever read a book with so many twists! The plot of Th Queen Will Betray You moves at breakneck speed and remained brilliantly unpredictable right to the very end! Like with the first book, I found the romance a bit weak - but with everything else going on it really didn't matter! A story of war and political intrigue where nobody is safe and nobody is what they seem - this book was a joy to read. I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I actually had to DNF this book. It wasn’t horrible—I just had no interest in continuing. This series is definitely made for a younger audience, and I just couldn’t enjoy it as much. Thanks Netgalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Lots of wit, adventure and romance. A terrific fantasy. Love the strong and sassy heroine. With hints of a Princess Bride and what more can you ask for? A fun book that can be read in a day. :) Thanks to the publisher who gave me the arc in exchange for my opinion.
