Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway: Lera of Lunos by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review The series is now over! Last year, I discovered reverse harem, and one that stood out to me was Alex Lidell’s Power of Five. You can read my reviews of Power of Five, Mistake of Magic, and Trial of Three to see how this series kept delivering just what I wanted! And not just beautiful, colourful covers. Remember when the trials were Lera’s biggest problem? Well, the final trial was nothing in comparison to the real struggle introduced in Trial of Three. There were basically two tense plot scenes: the final trial in the first quarter and the showdown at the end. I honestly had no idea how that final showdown would work out, and I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out, even though one point was a bit …convenient. (I have questions, m’kay.) You’re probably then wondering what was going on in the middle of those […]

Review & First Chapter: I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review & First Chapter: I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

The Faerie Queen’s review First thing’s first, this book is clearly dedicated to me. You can read the dedication in the Amazon preview, and there you will find a description of me. Second, this gif basically sums up my expression over and over during this book. Here are just a few of my creepy grin triggers… Being a romance novel, the most important aspect is the relationship between the hero and heroine. Well, this book had me on edge. The chemistry. It was insane. And they didn’t dooooo anythinnnnggggg for ages except stare at each other and have intense silences and sparks and uuuughhhhh. My heart. Every time I thought they’d actually act on the very palpable attraction, they’d Do The Right Thing. Ryker was a damn boy scout, really. Even when he messed up, he was quick to apologise and try to make things right. Aside from The Secret, they were […]

Review: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

Review: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

The Faerie’s Queen review Before I get into my review, here were my reasons for reading this book: That gorgeous cover. I am obsessed with it. The fierce profile with the flames just work. I am nicknamed the Faerie Queen. This is for a reason. Because I love everything fae. Obvs. Forbidden love between a royal and a non-royal. What is a Hunter? Is this a human hunter? Is it a special sort of fae? So I had expectations, and I had questions. But here’s the thing… it didn’t work for me, and I could sense that pretty quickly. In fact, I DNF’d at 12%. Here’s why… First of all, this book should come with a handful of trigger warnings. It’s got murder, threats of rape, emotional abuse, and physical abuse all within the prologue and first chapter. There were also just so many inconsistencies and things that confused me. Why would […]

Review & Giveaway: Trial of Three by Alex Lidell

Review & Giveaway: Trial of Three by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review I am straight-up addicted to this series. Alex can’t write these stories fast enough. You can read my review of book 1 and book 2 if you need to see why. Let’s first talk about the plot, and then I’ll get to the boys, yeah? Well, this might be the most exciting of the series so far. I loved the first, and then the second was a little less thrilling, but things ramp up this time round. It’s been discovered that Lera is more powerful than anyone gave her credit for, but she has no control over that power, something crucial for her to survive the trials. But it’s no longer just the trials that she has to worry about, as danger from the outside – particularly Mors – is catching up on the new quint. And while there are hints of malice from the Lunos […]

Excerpt: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

It’s a new month and therefore a fresh start. To kick of October right, I’ve got an excerpt for you from a faerie book I’m immensely excited for: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy! I can’t wait for October 22nd… Just look at that cover! About the book Excerpt There are so many people in here. Royals and social climbers of the Winter Court, I try to see into the edge of the room, cast in shadows, but the light surrounding me blinds me from it. The applause continues as I make my way onto the stage, in front of the table where the Vasara’s sit, with Cade to the left of his father who is just an older, slightly greying version of Cade, and Rowan to the right by his mother. I curtsy as tradition dictates and hold my submissive position until I am released by King Earon’s words. “Emilia […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Stealing Tranquility by J.L. Weil

It’s time for a lazy Sunday, and also to celebrate this week’s release of Stealing Tranquility by J.L. Weil! Because you should know by now that this Faerie Queen is a reverse harem junkie. I’ve got an excerpt from you, plus the chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card at the end, so start scrolling! About the book Excerpt Zade moved so he stood just slightly in front of me as if protecting me. Odd. Did I need protection from Jase? “Just making sure our little gem doesn’t get herself in trouble.” Zade cocked his head to the side. “Isn’t that what we agreed on?” The tranquility-breathing dragon stood inside the arched doorway, glaring at Zade with a mean scowl—his eyes so dark they almost appeared black. “Yes, but that doesn’t include you seducing her.” “Since when do you meddle in my extracurricular activities?” Zade challenged him, with an edge […]

Review & Excerpt: You Promised Me Forever by Monica Murphy

Review & Excerpt: You Promised Me Forever by Monica Murphy

The Faerie Queen’s review This… did not work for me. And it was only after I finished the book that I understood why. And yes, I did finish it; it was like that urge to watch a car crash in slow motion, and I couldn’t look away. I had to know how it ended. But here’s why. You see, a lot of people have rated this book highly on Goodreads, and I noticed a trend with the reviews I read. A lot of these reviewers had read the author’s books before, notably her YA romance, More Than Friends. Well, dear readers, it turns out that You Promised Me Forever is a revisiting of the relationship that develops in that book. But nowhere does it say that in the blurb. Maybe the author was banking on this second-chance story standing on its own? Well, it didn’t, and that’s for a few […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Of Ashes and Sin by Ariana Hawkes & K. N. Knight

I know we just shared an excerpt, but this one is completely different. This one is for you Reverse Harem fans, from Of Ashes and Sin by Ariana Hawkes & K. N. Knight! And don’t miss the $30 Amazon gift card giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt The guys went into the pool again after breakfast, their bronzed bodies glistening in the sunlight, but I kept my clothes on and took a walk around the perimeter of the area instead. I was edgy in a way I couldn’t explain. Yes, I was restless, but it wasn’t just that. I looked over at the three of them. Oran was swimming, his muscular back and tight buns showing on the surface of the water, while Zain and Rael were stretched out naked, two perfect specimens of manhood. I laughed hollowly. This would be any woman’s ultimate fantasy. Am I crazy not to just relax […]

Excerpt & Giveaway: Discovering You by Kate McBrien

Happy Hump Day! How about a little bit of foreplay from Discovering You by Kate McBrien? About the book Excerpt Justin reached for her hand. “Come here.” Lucy took one step forward, and Justin cradled her face, gazing into her eyes. He leaned in slowly and gave her a gentle kiss. His lips were soft and full as they touched hers. It was a tender kiss at first, but soon the kiss deepened. His kiss should have felt new, but instead it felt like coming home to something rooted deep within her. His fingers wound around her hair, pulling her even closer to him. He moaned as Lucy parted her lips, allowing his tongue access inside, exploring her depths. Something detonated inside Lucy as she ran her fingers through his hair. It seemed as if all the anxiety she usually had around men had evaporated. Justin pulled away, his eyes exploring […]
