Publisher's Summary

In the explosive third volume of The Hundredth Queen Series, the queen of fire faces off against a demon of ice.

Despite the odds, Kalinda has survived it all: Marriage to a tyrant. Tournaments to the death. The forbidden power to rule fire. The icy touch of a demon.

That same demon now disguises itself as Rajah Tarek, Kalinda's late husband and a man who has never stopped haunting her. Upon taking control of the palace and the army, the demon brands Kalinda and her companions as traitors to the empire. They flee across the sea, seeking haven in the Southern Isles.

In Lestari, Kalinda's powers are not condemned, as they are in her land. Now free to use them to protect those she loves, Kalinda soon realizes that the demon has tainted her with a cold poison, rendering her fire uncontrollable. But the lack of control may be just what she needs to send the demon back to the darkest depths of the Void.

To take back the empire, Kalinda will ally with those she distrusts - and risk losing those most loyal to her - to defeat the demon and bring peace to a divided nation.

Brace Yourself - No Spoilers.

Once again, Emily King proves her mastery of world-building and story-crafting. I don't want to elaborate too much for obvious reasons, but I can promise you that this book will make you feel a spectrum of emotion few books can cultivate. I cannot wait for the next one!

Male Narrator Mispronounces Main Character’s Name AGAIN

This series is good, but the male narrator that was added for book 2 and 3 mispronounces the main character’s name in BOTH audible books!!!! There is NO excuse for him to be doing it AGAIN. The main character’s name is Kalinda, but she goes by “CAL-ee”, like Allie. The male narrator and her love interest pronounces her name “call-EE”, like Ali as in Muhammad Ali with the emphasis on the second syllable. Not only does he say it wrong but he puts the emphasis on the wrong syllable. Oh, maybe he has a cool accent, you might be wondering? NO. Both characters have an American accent.

The second narrator is RUINING the audio experience. It’s so distracting- it actually makes me dislike the character and think that he’s stupid.

Audible, PLEASE fix this for book 4!!!!!

Actor Issues

I would have preferred this to be like the first one... only narrated by Lauren Ezzo. Scott Merriman takes away from the enjoyment of the book.

Not worth it

I couldn't get through it. The protagonist is supposed to be a strong woman, but the narrator made her sound whiny and insecure, thanks in part to the author's decision to make her emotionally subservient to a man. Maybe a different pairing would have been better.

Kept my attention

Enjoyed it. Many people within the book come to life. I liked the fact that men's voices were performed by men and women's by women. It was done with expression. Look forward to the next book.

Another Great Installment

The penultimate book to Kalindas story and another great book. I have to admit, I was getting annoyed with some of her choices but then it did become clear why she was making them and all was right with the world again, only for a sad twist at the end.
The battle at the end was very gripping too!
Getting straight on to the final book to see how it all ends for everyone.

I Give Up!

This is one good series. However, I have become disappointed in Deven and his lack of forethought, which normally costs people their lives. What idiot who has an enemy intent on killing him and his friends, let's him walk away to fight another day? It is slightly irritating when the listener can see what is going to happen, but the character frustrates.

The continuing attraction of Kalinda to Prince Ashwin is worrying. That said, this series drives you on to listen to the next book.
