  • This couple deserve to be happy

    This the final book catches up with Conri and Lia straight after the absolutely horrifying events in the last book. Lia needs to convince Conri that she's strong enough to face anything but naturally all he wants to do is wrap her up in cotton wool. Having previously protested at Conris warlike ways now Lia needs him to employ his wits and cunning to finally face the Emperor and his heinous, evil Wizards. Yet the Emperor controls so many with his use of political prisoners that it's doubtful they will find allies. Perhaps Lia can finally tap into her full potential but if she does that those who believe her dead will suspect the truth about what it truly means to claim the hand that holds the ring ! This couple deserve their happiness although there have been times I seriously wondered how on earth it would happen. Lia is in many ways trapped by her beloved island and the revelations about just exactly what she is were stunningly done. I particularly liked that in this book it's Conri who instead of charging in makes plans that sadly could seriously go awry but luckily he is not alone. There's a revelation or two about that pesky thorn in Conris side Ambrose and perhaps I am bloodthirsty and wanted certain evil characters to suffer more but the conclusion was exactly what I wanted and I'm left with a smile on my face. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

  • Great finish to an exciting series

    This is a wonderful wrap-up to an exciting and original romance-fantasy series. Con might have managed to rescue Lia from the grip of the evil wizards, but by bringing her back to life, none of them came out scar-free. Lia's more than confused...and those around Con keep reminding him it is the brain which rots first. But there's more to it; he's sure there is. But as she's lost in a muddled-mental-nightmare, the island is dying and sending the entire kingdom into chaos. But even if he finds a way to help her heal, there's still the question of what to do now that he knows the plans of the one who took her captive. I'll admit, I can't remember if I read the second book in this series or not, but the first one definitely still sticks in my memories. So, while it took a bit to sink into this third installment and figure out what was going on, it wasn't too difficult either. Still, I recommend reading this as a series, since none of these are stand-alones. There are so many original elements about this fantasy and surprises that it's hard to put this one down. Con has developed so much from the first book and is finally filling the shoes of the king he's meant to be. Lia has always been a force to be reckoned with, but now, the secret behind her entire existence is being exposed (one she doesn't know herself). It sheds an entire new light on her and the island, and she embraces all of this only the way a true heroine can. Of course, they have all of their allies on their side, which round off the richness and depth. I've learned to like every single one and am sad to see them go. The pacing in this one is quick but by no means ignores the psychological and character development. There's just so much tension and darkness still to be unraveled that this bunch has more than enough to deal with. Of course, the writing is grabbing and the world building still draws in. So, the fantasy side of this sits solid and promises an exciting ride. Then, there's romance. These two have long bonded, and despite several lingering doubts, are a couple through and through. Their relationship goes beyond superficial, which was really nice to see. There are a couple of steamier moments, but these are kept in check and don't overtake the main story in any way. The development in this one does leave the reader wondering how it will all turn out in the end, but the author does know how to close this one up in a wonderful way, too. I received an ARC through Netgalley and really enjoyed the dive into this fantasy world.

  • Awesome Read

    The Promised Queen was an epic adventure filled with magic, love, action and so much more. I love this world and it’s magic system. I admit I’m sad to see this end but I thoroughly enjoyed the conclusion to Con and Lia’s story. It was a fitting end to wonderfully-epic story. I definitely recommend this trilogy.

  • Interesting magical adventure, sweet and steamy!

    Very entertaining! Love the unique vibe to the story! This is book 3 and a finale book, so I’d recommend reading the previous books for the best overall experience. I’ve really enjoyed this whole series! Cool magical elements! Steamy passionate connection between Con and Lia! Love their chemistry and how they support each other. Lia has been brought back from the dead after being tortured, so she’s really dealing with some issues; she’s not fully herself, there’s evil people trying to take over her kingdom, and what happens between her and Con if they do save the other royals. Danger and intrigue! The only thing I didn’t care for was the Night Court stuff; debauchery and such going on, but Con and Lia’s devotion to each other is nice. Overall, this was wonderfully intriguing, and I look forward to reading more from this author!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Excellent Conclusion to a Wonderful Series

    The Promised Queen by Jeffe Kennedy Forgotten Empires #3 All good things must come to an end…unless this author decides to carry on with the other worlds mentioned in this trilogy and perhaps builds a spinoff to a delightful fantasy romance that ended just as it should by the end of book three of this series. What I liked: * Lia: a species I have never seen before with all the positive attributes necessary to make this story special. She and Con were perfect for one another. * Con: someone deprived of his birthright who managed to survive and perhaps thrive as a result of the horrific life he was forced to live. He was perfect with and for Lia. * The love that grew between Con and Lia * The magical elements of the story * Calanthe: home to Lia, an island, magical, and so much more * The mythology and prophecy of this series * The supporting characters – many could have stories of their own * The way that Con and Lia were there for one another * That good overcame evil * The way all the threads were tied up by the end of the series * Thinking about the future and the possibilities for Con, Lia and the others What I didn’t like: * Anure, the evil wizards, and the suffering they meted out on so many Could this series have been many books? Yes. Did it tell the story and do it well in three books? Yes. Will I miss spending more time with Con and Lia? Definitely Would I read more by this author? I am sure I would! Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Paperbacks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
