The Queen Will Betray You (Kingdoms of Sand and Sky Book 2)

We rated this book:


Princess Amarande and Luca are both monarchs without a kingdom. Though their love is true, they reluctantly part to save their ailing countries. However, Ama is taken unawares when she is introduced to the brother she didn’t know she had by the mother she hasn’t seen in years, then promptly locked in a tower. Her efforts to push past the patriarchy and rule in her own right are stalled again. Meanwhile, Luca must go to the Torrent, his country by birth, and rally his people from the Warlord who has terrorized the area for so many years. As secrets are shared and battle lines are drawn, Ama and Luca do not know whom to trust, but they hold to the truth that their love will bring them back together.

Action is quick, characters are cruel, and cliffhangers are brutal, switching scenes and abandoning characters in perilous positions. The beautiful cover hides more references to The Princess Bride to readers’ delight. A review or re-read of the first book would be helpful as this one builds on previous events and characters. The King Will Kill You will complete this series in August 2022.
