Publisher's Summary

Talia could scarcely believe that she had finally earned the rank of full Herald. Though this seemed like the fulfillment of all her dreams, it also meant she would face trials far greater than those she had previously survived. 

For now, Talia must ride forth to patrol the kingdom of Valdemar, dispensing Herald's justice throughout the land. 

But in this realm beset by dangerous unrest, enforcing her rulings will require all the courage and skill Talia could command - for if she misuses her own special powers, both she and Valdemar will pay the price.

good second book

Having read the first book I was excited to read the second. Some parts were long-winded with excessive details, and I got frustrated over the inability of the characters to learn from their experiences. The pace picked up at the end of the book, and the narrator did a great job reading and speaking for the characters

Long time favorite

I have loved this story since it was published and enjoyed Christa’s performance of some of my favorite characters. Will listen to it repeatedly.

Wonderful story

make sure to listen to Arrows of the Queen first. I've read these books before, but there is something about listening to then that gives them that extra special magic.

Great story, Great narrator. It's just great!

I love this series. The narrator has a wonderfully soothing voice and does excellent characterization for everyone. The pacing is very good, highlighting the important parts while also jumping months at a time. It does feel a bit rushed at the end as most of it is wrapping up some loose ends, but it's all enjoyable to read/listen to.

Enthralling Tale

I read the Queen’s Own series in my early teens. It captured my attention and it’s now one of my favorite books I’ve ever read. It’s one of those books I can go back to and re read dozens of times, and never tire of it.
Talia is a sweet and genuine heroine and is fantastic to relate to. I highly recommend this to any young girl who needs a world to dive in to.

Amazing book series!

Any book by Mercedes Lockheed is a good one. she tells a story that pulls the characters in to your heart. It is impossible not to feel every emotion as the story goes from start to finish.

Struggle for book two

The reading of this story was wonderful! And, the consistency in that regard between book one and book two was perfect! However, I was disappointed that this book undid part of the completion from the. first book in the series, instead of continuing the plot forward after her training. it reused the problems from book one instead of giving or heroin a new focus. Once I was able to set this frustration aside I could enjoy the book, and the ending was triumphant and good, but I hope that the next book in the series can take our trained character now and build on what has already been laid, instead of again repeating the same problems and struggles that we have seen completely conquered twice already. I am sure there is more to deal with in her world than her own struggle to control her gift and to live with her low self esteem.
