J. Abedi’s The Queen is an amazing finish to the Fae Series.
The story starts out with a diary entry about the Lost Colony in 1590. It then transitions, to modern times where Devilyn and Caroline are at a school Halloween party, and Caroline is kidnaped. I found their costumes amusing. Devilyn struggles throughout the story, feeling that their relationship puts her in danger.
Caroline has grown tremendously throughout this trilogy. She comes into her powers and is continually challenged by the dark Fae. She is intelligent and brave. Devilyn is dealing with the responsibilities of being King. He feels like his dark side is consuming his light. He blames himself for putting Caroline in danger. He loves Caroline and would give her up if it meant she was safe.
Caroline, Devilyn, and their friends/family are put through numerous challenges. The dark Fae are no longer following their laws. Alderon continues to be a lethal opponent. Some interesting things happen with him, especially toward the end of the story. Puck lives up to his mischievous reputation and is a dangerous foe.
I like how the story flashes back to 1590-01 and the diaries of Captain John White and Eleanor Dare about the Lost Colony. I also, like that the story is told from both Devilyn’s and Caroline’s point of view.
- J. Abedi’s The Queen is well-written and has a wonderful plot. The story is full of excitement and twists. I would love to see this trilogy turned into a movie or television series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
