    These days, with kids and work and and and it s rare that I end up staying up past my bedtime to read a book And when I do, it s because the book is just that engrossing and because I always vastly underestimate how long it will take me to finish whatever I m reading Such was the case here I had to work this morning, bright and early My daughter wanted to sleep with me last night, which meant going to bed early as well But there I was, at 12 45, turning the last page on my Kindle in t These days, with kids and work and and and it s rare that I end up staying up past my bedtime to read a book And when I do, it s because the book is just that engrossing and because I always vastly underestimate how long it will take me to finish whatever I m reading Such was the case here I had to work this morning, bright and early My daughter wanted to sleep with me last night, which meant going to bed early as well But there I was, at 12 45, turning the last page on my Kindle in the dark, under the covers, my daughter sleeping next to me and the thunder sounds she had requested rocking the room Though admittedly, the thunder was a fabulous soundtrack for the latter half of the book.In Crush the King, we find Evie Queen Everleigh still besieged by assassins, and it seems everywhere she turns, there areFinally deciding she s had enough of playing defense, she goes on the offense and brings the battle to Regalia Games similar in spirit to the Olympics When it all comes down to life or death, Evie is will to sacrifice everything in order to Crush the King.It s a great continuation of the series, and Evie gets better and better as a character She s notstatic She learns and adjusts and takes the hits sometimes too The book s no spoilers ending was perfect , though I will say that it leaves enough open that another book could theoretically be possible My understanding is that this is a trilogy, however it s not unheard of for that to change if books are doing well Overall, if this IS the end it s been a helluva ride There s strength in physicality but there s also strength in wits and honor Queen Everleigh Blair demonstrates that playing the long game can devastate your opponent as much as beating them on a battlefield

    How to describe this series I had stockpiled the entire trilogy in ARCs from work because a coworker thought the first one looked like it might be my speed and finally started reading the first book the day the third one showed up on our shelf The entire series is totally bonkers but in a very fun, you have to keep reading kind of way It s a YA fantasy except the characters are old enough that they can have guilt free steamy sex scenes I had many, many problems with the story the her How to describe this series I had stockpiled the entire trilogy in ARCs from work because a coworker thought the first one looked like it might be my speed and finally started reading the first book the day the third one showed up on our shelf The entire series is totally bonkers but in a very fun, you have to keep reading kind of way It s a YA fantasy except the characters are old enough that they can have guilt free steamy sex scenes I had many, many problems with the story the heroine has been told her entire life that her magic is worthless but her ability is a sense of smell so strong she can SMELL EMOTIONS like uhhhh if you re going into politics that kind of seems like obviously the best magic ability Forget throwing lightning or her actual secret secondary magical ability, which is to control other people s magic, she can SMELL WHEN PEOPLE LIE TO HER Come on Also her love interest is supposedly a grown man but throws a literal temper tantrum when, after he has told her that he will never be with her, ever, stop asking , she arranges a political marriage for herself, which whatever, men are babies, news at eleven And all the political maneuvering is telegraphed a mile in advance Yet, at the same time, these books are incredibly entertaining They got me out of a reading slump and kept me going for several long commutes You ll know when you re in the mood for ridiculous fantasy with a lady in leather trousers on the cover save this series for that moment I think any Sarah J Maas fan would be delighted to give these a try

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this series by Jennifer Estep It has just a little bit of everything thrown in to make it an entertaining and well written read While it s not overly complicated, there s just enough of the unexpected to keep you enthralled The Crown of Shards series begins with Kill the Queen, where Everleigh Blair of Bellona is the stand in royal, sent to all the public appearances that no one else wants to do This has made her well known in the country and also allowed her a level I have thoroughly enjoyed this series by Jennifer Estep It has just a little bit of everything thrown in to make it an entertaining and well written read While it s not overly complicated, there s just enough of the unexpected to keep you enthralled The Crown of Shards series begins with Kill the Queen, where Everleigh Blair of Bellona is the stand in royal, sent to all the public appearances that no one else wants to do This has made her well known in the country and also allowed her a level of privacy to hide the strength and nature of her magic When an uprising leads to the slaughter of all other members of the royal family, she is able to escape, hide out and train as a gladiator Eventually, leading to the vengeance of her family and becoming the new queen of Bellona Now, in book three, Everleigh and the people she loves and trusts the most are surrounded by the schemes and intrigue that inspired the attack on the royal family in the first place But there s no better place than the Regalia Games, the competition between Kingdoms, to seek revenge and punish those involved Political schemes, intrigue and one up man ship are the name of the game to survive and win the day
