Publisher's Summary

The portal is open. The war has begun. The third installment of a coming-of-age fantasy series perfect for teen and young adult fans of Terry Brooks (Shannara), Cinda Willams Chima (The Demon King), Christopher Paolini (Eragon), and other works of epic sword and sorcery. 

Going home makes everything harder. 

After being hunted by humans and transformed into a demonic creature called a drow, Drynn believes his family will be safer in the forest. Problem is, more drow are waiting for them there. 

When his brother is taken by the same drow who burned his home, Drynn is told that he needs the ashes of the phoenix to defeat them. It only would require him to return to the human kingdom and all the dangers he thought he left behind. 

But when he discovers that his brother has been forced to join the ranks of the drow, it seems they may have already run out of time. 

The Queen’s Heir is the direct sequel to The Queen’s Opal (2017), and The Queen’s Gift (2018), a new series set the same world as The Stone Bearers (2016). 

Clean story. Fantasy violence, light innuendo, and a few darker themes. Recommended for young adults and teens 12 and up.

A Tale of Elves & Drow

As a table top DM I am very familiar with the drow or at least I thought I was. This is a different creation story for that dark elvan peoples and one I really like. Drin was able to be healed from the condition which is even more intriguing because that means being a drow is an illness and not a race. I hope he can get close enough to his brother to heal him too. I am very invested in these characters and I am excited and slightly frightened to move on to the next book in this series. I really want to see what happens next but I worry I will lose someone, but that is what makes a great book right? I think so anyway. Jacque you have done a marvelous job of drawing me the reader in. John is the perfect narrator for this story of danger, friendship and intrigue with a wide array of voices to give life to each character. Ok dear reader hopefully you have read my other reviews so you already know this is a great series and now, I will meet you at book 4.

Love this series. It is a great story to get lost in. Wish the rest of the books were on audiobook.

Engaging world and a bit more action.

From the beginning, the author has created a detailed world and interesting characters. we learn a good deal about major characters and can understand why they make choices. This continues here and our heroes go through more trials and adventure. It was an interesting and engaging read throughout. My only wish was for a bit more of a climax. Something to leave me with a bit more of a reaction than "Oh, ok. Until the next one." Though I am starting to think perhaps this is meant to be more like a single book written in parts (i.e. LotR) than separate books in a series. Either way, this is an enjoyable tale and I look forward to seeing it continue.

Narration continues with the same quality as the first two books. It is skillfully done, with good energy, emotion, pacing, and makes it easy to tell who is speaking.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Revaluations!

Great addition to this series. Some Oh No's, Yes's and some revaluations!
This is not a standalone, and should be listened to in order.
So looking forward to the next.

Definitely a Favorite Series!!

I love this series! You definitely need to read them in order or you'll be lost. They do only a little recap. This series is an elven adventure, reminiscent of Lord of the Rings but I enjoyed these much more. The mystery and adventure continues in this installment and we learn more about the magic and the drow. It is clean and I would say it's really geared for middle grade to adults but I have let my 4th grader read it to and he loves them! The narration is top notch. John Pirhalla does a fantastic job with all of the voices, accents and acting-- it's really just a lot of fun to listen to!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this series. Those who love fantasy, magic and adventure will not be disappointed.
