Queen Of The Unknown

The tales tell of three sisters, daughters of the high king. The eldest, a valiant warrior-woman, heir to the kingdom. The youngest, the sweet beauty with her Prince Charming. No one says much about the middle princess, Andromeda. Andi, the other one.

Andi doesn't mind being invisible. She enjoys the company of her horse more than court, and she has a way of blending into the shadows. Until the day she meets a strange man riding, who keeps company with wolves and ravens, who rules a land of shapeshifters and demons. A country she'd thought was no more than legend--until he claims her as its queen.

In a moment everything changes: Her father, the wise king, becomes a warlord, suspicious and strategic. Whispers call her dead mother a traitor and a witch. Andi doesn't know if her own instincts can be trusted, as visions appear to her and her body begins to rebel.

For Andi, the time to learn her true nature has come. . .

Our customer reviews

I liked this book, it did take some time to get into it, however I found that the book was well written and I enjoyed seeing how Andi grew and dealt with the situation she found herself in. However I did find it hard to believe that she would fall for a man who would kidnap and force her to marry him. The romance felt rushed if it had continued for another book or too I would have found it more believable. I also found the ending a bit rushed and I'm disappointed to see that the next book is from her sisters POV. I'm hoping that we will get to see Andi again as there are may unanswered question with her story line. I would have like to learn more about the shape shifting, magic and the new land she lives in. I just do not feel like the story was finished and with the next book being from the younger sisters POV I don't see how this is going to happen unless the book changes POV between the sisters. If you like romance stories with the series changing POV with each book then this is for more
