Queen's Rising
Queen's Rising | Rebecca Ross
Grave Mercy meets Red Queen in this epic debut fantasy, inspired by Renaissance France, about an outcast who finds herself bound to a disgraced lord and entangled in his plot to overthrow the current king.Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron. Growing up in Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her. While some are born with a talent for one of the five passions--art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge--Brienna struggled to find hers until she chose knowledge. However, Brienna's greatest fear comes true--she is left without a patron. Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, she reluctantly accepts. But there is much more to his story, for there is a dangerous plot to overthrow the king of Maevana--the rival kingdom of Valenia--and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the throne. And others are involved--some closer to Brienna than she realizes.And now, with war brewing, Brienna must choose which side she will remain loyal to: passion or blood.

The first in a duology, it is YA fantasy/romance, it involves a plot to overthrow a king, trying to restore the rightful queen, battles, magic and romance. I enjoyed it and am reading to final book now.

This is the third Rebecca Ross book I‘ve read, although it was actually her debut novel. Her world building is magnificent, and I love the friendships and sisterly bonds she portrays between female characters. The story was fast paced and kept me completely engaged, which is why I read it in only two sittings. I‘m looking forward to the sequel!

Let's forget the poorly done characters, the flawed first person perspective the plot holes and the fact it wasn't well written.
And remember the amazing world building inspired by Celtic and French cultures and a twist of magic with a spoonful of romance. A satisfying ending that almost makes you forget everything bad about the story, and the allure that comes with it.
An easy read for between book series, A book to appreciate others greatly.

I loved this book. Yes some plot holes. Could easily have been fleshed out and expanded. Borrows from French and Celtic culture, with its own world building and story that touches on familiar- almost a retelling of multiple influences. Feminist, magical, a little romance, character driven. Will probably be a favorite of the year. #bookspin

MsMelissa Oh good! I bought a copy of this one because it sounded good but I‘ve heard next to nothing about it. 2y

Avanders Have you read the Tearling series? 2y
Chrissyreadit @Avanders not yet but I‘m pretty sure I have Queen of Tearling. Are they similar? 2y
Avanders @Chrissyreadit well I haven‘t read this one, but the words you used to describe the sequel would apply... and I loved it. And I would definitely recommend based on how you describe these 😁😁 2y
Chrissyreadit Ohh! Good! @Avanders I wonder if you would enjoy these two? Have you read Meghan Whalen Turners Thief series? 2y
Avanders I‘ve never read anything by this author before! 😲 Do you recommend the Turners Thief series more? 2y
Chrissyreadit @Avanders The Thief is one of my all time favorite series ever- but I know not everyone I‘ve recommended it to has loved it- I can only say I absolutely loved it- it‘s a very fast read- also YA and I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Want to make a top ten post of absolute favorite fantasy sci-fi with me today? Then we can see what we have in common and what should be in our tbr? (Or 5 star fantasy Sci fi- then no cut off if needed?) 2y
Avanders Ok I‘m going to try to do this! — but it won‘t happen until tonight 😜 (also, the Tearling series is not Ya, FYI) 2y

This was a great mail day! Both my first Sips Tea Box and my Book Outlet order arrived today! I didn't include a picture of the books for my kids because they snatched them up right away. The Jane Eyre is just because I thought it was pretty. That makes 4 copies of Jane Eyre that I own becauseI thought they were pretty😄. #tea #bookmail #bookoutlet #bookhaul

This debut fantasy novel holds, beauty, culture, war, deceit and magic within its pages. Brienna really doesn't belong anywhere. She is illegitimate, her father's name withheld and her mother dead. Seeking to protect her, her grandfather sends her to a boarding school of sorts where she struggles to find her passion. Little does she know he is beneath her nose all along--and together they will discover who she truly is.

A great story of revenge, loyalty, loss, and self discovery. Brienna is a wonderful and relatable character. The plot thickens with every page, leaving you wanting more and more. By far one of my best reads, I highly recommend this book.

WOW! I am positive I have never read a YA book like this. Briena is incredible. Her journey to finding her identity was captivating. I was completely on Bri side from the beginning. I know there has to be more to come with her.

I quite simply loved this book. There is a graceful timelessness to it that captures a beautiful world filled with well-imagined characters and countless sentences I could reread over and over. There is forbidden romance, revenge, war, and scheming, but all done with such a delicate hand that envelopes you in the story as you fall in love with it. Rebecca Ross is a passion of wit who has woven a remarkable debut that is well worth your time.

“Passion is wholehearted devotion; it is fervor and agony; it is temper and zeal.” This was a pretty good book. It started off a bit slow but still kept my attention. The end picked up but I wish it would have been a bit more. I understand it was supposed to be a stand-alone, so I understand why it ended the way it did. Overall it wasn't bad though. I enjoyed the characters and world that was created.

I‘m not really sure because most of my books are on kindle and I don‘t really pay attention to the pages. 4. @jrbaker 5.

Really enjoyed this one! Not sure if it is intended to become a series down the line or not but the story is great as a stand alone. Focuses on a girl who is half of one country, half of another trying to find her place and family between the two.

I coughed, the children coughed- ugh. Also I‘m always tired??? Hope tomorrow will be better. Has anyone watched the #Oscars last night? I have only seen Dunkirk and Get Out, but I‘m planning to catch up with the rest.

This book is very basic and honestly nothing new in the world of YA fantasy.

The main female is just so mundane and forgetful. Just like the Queen to be. there seemed to be just an overall lack of character development and relationship building. The author told you all about how female student is attracted to (7+ year older teacher) but didn't show you.

Overall pretty predictable and nothing special but I've definitely read worse YA fantasies.

My favorite book of 2018, so far. I can‘t believe this is a debut. Everything about this was wonderful.

But... For the love of all that is holy, DON‘T READ THE FAMILY TREES AT THE BEGINNING OF THE BOOK. JUST DON‘T.

BookHoarder32 Definitely! Maps are okay but a list of characters and family trees is overwhelming. I felt like I was beginning Lord of the Rings :) I wonder why they wanted to include it? Like the author or publisher thought there were too many characters and it would get confusing 🤔 5y

This (signed!) beauty from one of my book subscriptions this month is next. I actually bought this the day it came out then found out I was getting it in a book box and took it back and bought The Apocalypse of Eden Mendoza instead! Such a happy coincidence! The same thing happened with The Hazel Wood which swiftly got replaced by The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton. I have a feeling all four might make it into my top books of 2018 list 🤞🏼
