Publisher's Summary

"Thousands of Copper Ra'Ak fought throughout Veshtul, killing many as they lashed out or crushing others as they crawled along. Screaming Comesuli ran before them, desperate to escape the deadly creatures. In the distance, a dragon's roar sounded as he fought off one of the monsters. Three other dragons fought beside him; I saw them as they charged their prey - a black dragon, a silver dragon and a gold dragon. Others were fighting Ra'Ak as well; a black gryphon fought alongside a huge snow leopard. Giant birds swept the sky, screaming in anger as Ra'Ak leapt at them, attempting to sink rows of deadly teeth into feathered flesh."

Lissa has been transported 300 years into the future to save the High Demon world and the Saa Thalarr. But what she doesn't understand is that they aren't the only things she is meant to protect. The balance - and survival of all worlds - rests in her hands.

WORST Book in series!! I want my credit back

Oh my, this was this worst book in the series everyone mated to each other no one remembering the main character the back and forth confusion. Only listen if you want a headache. It is a shame because this was one of my favorite series and now I am going to stop here. I am sadden because it was so unique and interesting and the author dropped the ball.

Cruel and unusual punishment!

I enjoyed the prior books in this series. Unfortunately, this last book bumbed.
Wasted credit. The heroine was protrayed as crying slut throughout the book.

Very nice

Skilled narration with thoughtful and consistent vocal interpretation of the various characters - I could tell which character was speaking just by listening and the voices didn't annoy or bore me the way some other narrators do. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Outstanding rebirth for an endless story!

Here we go! I'm experiencing some conflicting emotions over this book, Blood Queen. It is Book 6 in the Blood Destiny series, so I should have been holding on tight to something, anything... but like a fool I went in totally unprepared. I am really sad about what Lissa had missed by jumping 300 hundred years into the future and being forced to stay there. However, the journey while she was there was completely worth the sorrow.

Lissa is a Vampire Queen, which is very rare for her species on earth. Although this is a very rare gift for the vampire community to possess, they had ignored that fact and treated Lissa like a stupid child. Lissa had to endure being confined with a surrogate sire whom babysat her, and she had to ask permission before doing anything. Along with her living conditions, Wlodek, the head of the Vampire Council had married Lissa to Gavin without her consent or even her being present! So in book 5, Blood Royal, when Lissa was just finally getting to the point where she was going to be announced to the vampire council as a Queen, and start being treated with the respect she deserved, she was plucked out of time and whisked away by her true father Griffin!

Lissa had just defeated a great enemy to the vampires, along with his army, and was tired to say the least! Right after that, when everyone is still at the scene standing in shock, her father Griffin comes to her asking for her help. Of course Lissa agreed to go, but without any warning as to what she was helping with, or where or when. She never even had the time to say goodbye to Gavin or anyone else. Once Lissa was in full battle, her future was set in stone and there was no turning back. My heart sank and I cried. I didn't know what was to become of Lissa in this future other world, but it didn't seem like a bright one to me at the time. From here on out in the book, I was taken on a new journey with Lissa, new friends, loves, and final acceptance towards the people in her past. This book was really eye opening with Lissa's struggle for forgiveness, and the inner strength she possessed that allowed her to go on in this new life that was chosen for her. Now the fact that Lissa ended up with multiple mates, and having lots of sex going on had nothing to do with my enjoyment of the book, but it sure did kick it up a notch in the entertainment factor!

Blood Queen did give me the feel that this was the final chapter for Lissa, however there are three more books in the series. I am very anxious to find out what else is in store for me in Lissa's new world.

Narrator Review

Traci Odom continues to remain the voice of Lissa in the Blood Destiny Series. Anyone who has been following my reviews knows I love Traci! She has tremendous vocal talent, with her multiple accents, tones, and most of all her story telling abilities! I rate Traci's narration on this book with 5 Stars. Great job Traci, and I look forward to listening to you again in Blood Rebellion, Book 7!

Bloody Wierd!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Anyone who can remember the outrageous number of names and origins of the characters!

Has Blood Queen turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not in this genre, but this author.

What does Traci Odom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Traci Of some is fantastic, but I am sure having to create voices for all the characters was maddening!!!!

What character would you cut from Blood Queen?

Too many to name!

Any additional comments?

This series had so much going for it until now. Connie Suttle went off the deep end and sank! This book was incredibly hard to follow. I was so disappointed in it and listened to the end hoping it would get better, but it only got worse. I am through with this series.

Finally!

I think it's about time Lissa stood up for herself. Should let them know that forgiveness takes time.

Good but hard to fallow at times.

You need to know your characters. So many names... some old and some new. If you go to Connie Suttle's website she has a character list that explains each one. Also she has several other book series that are connected to this series. I found doing a little research very helpful. With that said I really like this book and the series as a whole. I love the different world's and creatures.

An immense fantasy

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Queen?

The hot tub.

Any additional comments?

Lissa is back, and she isn’t happy. Not only is she stuck three hundred years in the future on a world far from Earth but she has also been mistaken for a boy. Just as she begins to find out who she is and what she has lost she finds herself back in the kitchen, using her skill around food to wow those who treat her like a slave.
This series is full of fantasy creatures, races, and skills. Nothing is too far-fetched or far into the future for Suttle and her vampire queen. I must admit that I did get a little lost with the alien races but the story kept me riveted, regardless.
Lissa’s character has held me since book one and although I don’t understand why she still covets her relationship with Gavin, I do appreciate her other relationships. The book is full of steamy scenes, none too explicit, and she is spoilt for choice but it still holds a little romance in between every hot male of every alien race wanting to bed her.
If you like a strong female lead, then this will drive you crazy because Lissa is at one moment strong and powerful and the next she is sucked back into patriotic bureaucracy with no power at all. Despite not being able to grasp who was who I really enjoyed the story and will be reading the next book in the series.

Weird

I don't tend to review audible books but those one needed to be said.

I usually love this series, it's sucked me in.

However this one was weird.

I still love the main character even with her flaws but this story felt really clunky. It felt like the author mashed 3 books into 1 because she really wanted to change the direction of the story as quickly as possible.

It's straight on from the last book, no lead in or recap at all... Really confusing unless you've just finished the last. Then it settled a little and then suddenly everyone had a million lovers. I have no problem with open relationships or multiple partners but this has the subtlety of a sledge hammer. I really think the author got lost trying to do too much in this book and nothing was done well.

I still like the series but I really hope the next book isn't as all over the place as this one was.

Narrator annoyed me in places, some of her voices are flat and slow.

Good but not perfect

This is not a 'stand-alone' book you need to have read book 5 Blood Royal as the story continues virtually from one paragraph to the next. I have read the whole series and I am now avidly devouring the audio books.

To begin with I loved the narrator Traci Odom but as the series has become more and more complex I find the lack of versatility in Traci's character voices difficult.

The early part of the book when the story develops around Niff is a little clumsy but when Lissa reappears it seems that Connie settles down again and the writing improves.
There is a major event towards the end of the book when Lissa has accepted an offer made to her by someone - heaven knows who - that we know nothing about until event occur. I found this disconcerting as it changes future storylines.

I know I have reservations regarding this book but I also know I love the series and will re-read and re-listen to this series in future.
