    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I feel like I keep reading YA SFF and just not feeling like there is anything new or unique. I went into The Queen?s Rising expecting to feel the same, especially amidst all the lower reviews I kept seei...

    I hate giving one star to any book, especially those that didn't particularly piss me off or anything like that, but I just didn't enjoy The Queen's Rising one little bit. I think I almost died of boredom. It feels derivative of many other YA fantasy books but that alone isn't the p...

    4.5 Stars When I think of some of my all time favourite books, they either have: a) beautiful, albeit kind of flowery writing b) a slow burn plot/romance/pace or c) both. The Queen's Rising is one of the books that fell into the "both" category and I while I don't know what I expec...

    ?One day, a queen will rise,? he whispered, as if the books had ears to eavesdrop. ?Perhaps it will be in our lifetime, perhaps the one to follow us. But Maevana will remember who she is and unite for a greater purpose.? My reading experience summed up in one gif: ...

    ?So we rise to the challenge knowing that the victory is already ours.? The Queens Rising is getting a bit of hype here and there, and it has a wonderful cover, but this book was ultimately so disappointing for me. books need a hook - something that makes you want to read...

    ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Rating 4.5 Stars 2018 is really a great year so far for books. I have only had to DNF at least two books out of 20+ books listened to on audio or read. The Queen's Rising will definitely be put on the list of books that d...

    I had descended from selfish, ambitious blood. And I was Norah Kavanagh's vengeance. I would redeem myself. The Queen's Rising saved me from another frustrating reading slump. I already had high expectations because of the positive reviews written by reliable people on Goodreads, an...

    Wooooowwww. I loved this so much! This started out set in a boarding school, has a touch of hidden lineage and ancestral memories, morphed into a quest to reclaim the throne and restore magic to the land, and ended with a Medieval style battle. The writing was beautiful. There is a ...

    Before I review this, here's some advice to future writers. If you are going to make your main character's parentage a mystery in your novel, maybe don't make the first page of said novel, a convenient family tree explicitly depicting your main character's parentage. So, if you are ...

    Magnalia House was the sort of establishment where only wealthy, talented girls mastered their passion. It wasn't designed for girls who were lacking, for girls who were illegitimate daughters, and certainly not for girls who defied kings. I, of course, happen to be all three of t...

    I was super into this for the first bit, then I lost interest and was kind of bored, I found all the secret identities and family dynamics and court intrigues hard to keep track of. Honestly, the last 50 or so pages I ended up skimming because I was ready for it to be done. I had hoped...

    This book had me by the first couple of pages. Rebecca Ross? writing is very alluring and enchanting. Her words created a whimsical portrait of emotion, heritage and courage. I recommend not going into this novel knowing too much, and being pleasantly drawn into to the story. ...

    ? buddy read with christian Mixed. Mixed feelings are what I have for Queen's Rising. On the one hand, I couldn?t really connect with the characters and found it a tad emotionally uninteresting, it definitely wasn?t a character-driven novel in my eyes. (which is usually what...

    Mir hat der Schreibstil wirklich gut gefallen und die Welt, in der die Geschichte spielt, ist echt toll. Besonders den Kontrast zwischen den beiden Reichen mochte ich sehr und auch die Liebesgeschichte war perfekt, nicht zu sehr im Fokus aber dennoch schn umgesetzt. Fr mich war die...

    Oooh man. This has some of the loveliest, most visual writing I've ever laid eyes upon. Like... every sentence.... every paragraph... was crafted so perfectly. I feel so inspired. I feel like 90% of the time I come across pretty writing though, the plot is a bit lost. The good news...

    Rebecca Ross, the author of The Queen's Rising walked me through a magical journey. I got lost in the beautiful writing, so much so that it actually felt like I was there, living this story alongside the main character Brienna. Might this be my favourite book I've read so far this y...

    THE QUEEN'S RISING is a fantastic, complex YA fantasy that hits all the sweet spots of the kingdom/rebellion tropes without feeling tired or overdone. The writing is so well seasoned, with beautiful descriptions and awesome character development. I also just kind of want the "bow to no...

    Queens Rising follows Brienna as she get pulled into a plot to overthrow the King of another kingdom. Thats not a spoiler since its mentionned in the summary, but I did find the Goodreads summary a bit misleading. In her kingdom people can study to become one of five passions; art, mus...
