eBook The Queen's Knight download

by Deborah Chester


I thoroughly enjoyed The Queen's Knight. I reread The Queen's Gambit before I began this last book, and the two read well as one volume.

Ships from and sold by CDDVDDEALS. I thoroughly enjoyed The Queen's Knight. This book definitely does not stand on its own! Luckily, Chester does not waste time explaining what has gone on before, but just gets into the story. 5 people found this helpful.

The Queen's Knight book. This book was filled with pretty boring characters and a plot that was all over the place. Personally, I'm kind of relieved that this series only h Deborah Chester you disappoint me!

I totally agree with L. Kjonnerod who reviewed on March 19, 2006. There is no ending and, since it has been 11 years since the mass market version was released and no new book has been forthcoming, we will forever wonder what happened next. I suspect that there may have been another book planned that never materialized.

Until the last few chapters, there were enough plot twists and turns to keep me interested and dreading what was coming next. What a letdown.

Action, romance, magic blend together for a well written romantic fantasy. This is the 3rd in a series of 3.
Giood and evil magic-- the Queen fights to keep her realm safe of the dreaded evil forces in the world. Very
romeo and juliet because the love of her life can't be with her.

While this book was well written, drawing on the Queen's Gambit for its set up...just as the Queen and her knight have just mutually declared love, a rushed sequence involving a contrived fight between the Queen's knight and the Church Knights is trotted forth, then a rather unbelievable contretemps with the Heretics is stuck in, the two knights have a meeting of the minds if not agreement and then...... the book just stops; too many storylines left hanging, no indication of how the Queen will deal with the next, not even a promise of another book. I actually thought I was missing pages for a few startled moments.

But up till the end, it is a wonderful twisting of the story of this fascinating world, its magic, its belief set and its characters, building on Queen's Gambit, watching a realistic growth of the queen into her role. Read it, enjoy the story as it spins out, but do not expect closure of all of the key story lines. I don't blame Ms. Chester, I blame her editor and publisher who should have been more skilled in ensuring the book ended with a tantalizing hope for more of this construct, rather than just stopping the story without some closure.

Before her coronation as Queen Pheresa, the queen of Mandria, kills the husband who betrayed her and arrested her father for aligning with her spouse for the power and treasure he would gain from such an alliance. However, her enemies still remain for Theloi the Cardinal and head of the true church wants to control Pheresa and have the church as the most powerful force in Mandria where Magic is forbidden.

She is forced to banish her protector Sir Talmor before she is crowned queen because Theloi knows, even if he can't prove it, that Talmor has magic flowing through his veins. Talmor accepts the wishes of the church because of his love for his queen. During the ceremony, a red mist appears and Pheresa vanishes, taken hostage by the Sebeins, a heretical cult that practice magic and is hunted by the church. Talmor rescues her but witnesses saw him use fire magic so that the queen is forced to exile her beloved to his estate. While she copes with more attacks by the Sebeins, the machinations of Theloi and the rumbles of war from barbarians Talmor waits for Pheresa to call him back from exile.

The heroine has grown to be a strong and independent woman worthy to wear the crown and rule the realm by herself. She knows who her enemies are and tries all in the power to keep the kingdom safe from attack from within and without. Although everyone says she can't marry Talmor, she believes that one day she will be his wife for there is nobody else she trusts more. THE QUEEN'S KNIGHT is an entertaining, enthralling romantic fantasy page turner.

Luckily, Chester does not waste time explaining what has gone on before, but just gets into the story. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
