Read The Fire Queen (The Hundredth Queen, #2) Online Free - In the second book in The Hundredth Queen Series, Emily R. King once again follows a young warrior queen’s rise to meet her destiny in a richly imagined world of sorcery and forbidden powers.
Though the tyrant rajah she was forced to marry is dead, Kalinda’s troubles are far from over. A warlord has invaded the imperial city, and now she’s in exile. But she isn’t alone. Kalinda has the allegiance of Captain Deven Naik, her guard and beloved, imprisoned for treason and stripped of command. With the empire at war, their best hope is to find Prince Ashwin, the rajah’s son, who has promised Deven’s freedom on one condition: that Kalinda will fight and defeat three formidable opponents.
But as Kalinda’s tournament strengths are once again challenged, so too is her relationship with Deven. While Deven fears her powers, Ashwin reveres them—as well as the courageous woman who wields them. Kalinda comes to regard Ashwin as the only man who can repair a warring world and finds herself torn between her allegiance to Deven and a newly found respect for the young prince.
With both the responsibility to protect her people and the fate of those she loves weighing heavily upon her, Kalinda is forced again to compete. She must test the limits of her fire powers and her hard-won wisdom. But will that be enough to unite the empire without sacrificing all she holds dear?

I appreciated the small recap that was interwoven in at the beginning of this sequel. It was just enough to nudge my memory without feeling info dumpy. Im also terrible at remembering names so it definitely helped with that too. Overall I ended up liking this a bit more than the first book. This...

The thing I loved most about this book is that Kali is no longer a reluctant hero. Her journey in THE HUNDREDTH QUEEN was an admirable fight for survival that was exhilarating and painful (in the best way) to watch. But now in THE FIRE QUEEN, Kali knows what she wants. She has embraced who she is...

Dnf at 26%. Sorry, not sorry. The only thing I loved about the first book was the story and world building, but this one just started to sound like the same idea just slightly changed.
I still don’t like them. They’re boring and I’m not even invested in one of their stories....

“You have nothing to fear. You are fire and fire is you.”
This was such a great followup to The Hundredth Queen. The world becomes bigger the threats become larger and the stakes become higher. The Fire Queen follows Kali as she searches for Prince Ashwin, Tarek’s heir and the only pe...

Really, I don’t know why I expected something more from book two. I guess the cover just told me to read it because it was so pretty. I really hope more people enjoy this series. It just isn’t up my alley.
We received more than one Point Of View in this book, but it didn’t change...

So Kalinda and her friends rush to find the crown prince on the nation's border where he is being tutored by a holy man. A powerful man in the area refuses to let the...

There were so many things about THE HUNDREDTH QUEEN that I absolutely loved, but above anything else, I was so enamored with the incredible women depicted in that book. They were such tremendous examples of strength, femininity, and sisterhood. I am so thrilled to say that there are even more inc...
