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!!!!!

I loved this installment in Kalinda's story. The story sucked me in and the narration was excellent! this is the perfect example of what an audio book should sound like!

Wow

Kalinda has survived so much. She will continue fighting until she no longer can to save her people. Now that evil has been unleashed and is masking itself as her dead tyrant ex-husband, she will have to do everything in her power to try to stop him or her world may be coming to an end. Kalinda has always been an amazing character, but seeing her growth through the three books has been inspiring. It's actually been inspiring to watch all of the characters' growth. I just wish we could see more characters. There are some that are more in the background than they should be. If I can critique anything, I would say the build up could use a bit of work. In ways, it kind of falls flat throughout the progression of the story. This could just be me being overly critical though. There's nothing majorly wrong with the plot though. I love it. I love the suspense. I guess I am just saying I wish there was more. This has become one of my most favorite series of all times. I enjoyed it very much. The characters were great. The story was great. I found it very easy to become emotionally invested in the story because of both. I fully recommend this series. Please read the first two books before reading this.

I am wordless

This was hard to finish only because I knew what comes in the end. Still, it was enjoyable as all the others have been. I am curious to see what happens next so I will definitely listen to the next recording. It was a little slow in some places but overall, not bad.

Good book

Great charatures. A world full of hate, anger and rage between man and magics. How the two forces come together to form a better one in a new light. A little wordy at the end but worth the read.

ok

The narrators were pretty decent but wasn't as engaging as they could have been. The story however, I couldn't finish. The Main character is so selfish and self involved that she routinely screws over everyone else, including the people she's supposed to care for and are depending on her. I found very little to like about her that it got to the point reading/listening became painful and not at all entertaining.

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.
