Queen of the Unwanted (The Women’s War Book 2)

We rated this book:


Alys may be the acknowledged queen of the Women’s Well—the fledgling colony where women hold equal status with men—but she has little care for politics in the wake of an appalling personal tragedy. It is grief that rules her now. But the world continues to turn. In a distant realm unused to female rulers, Ellin struggles to maintain control. Meanwhile, the king of the island nation Khalpar recruits an abbess whom he thinks holds the key to reversing a spell that Alys’s mother gave her life to create. Unless these three women can all come together and embrace the true nature of female power, everything they have struggled to achieve may be at risk.

Queen of The Unwanted is a sequel for Jenna Glass’s The Women’s War, so if you haven’t yet had the time to read the first book in the series, I would suggest you start there. Much like the previous book in the series, Queen of the Unwanted has a wonderfully written world filled to the brim with a great mix of characters both good and bad. Although there are many wonderful things about Queen of The Unwanted, like the wonderfully written world, beautiful characters, and ever-changing politics surrounding every twist and turn, the first half of the book was a slow burn, though that would all change with the unexpected twists and turns of the second half.
