    One thought on “The True Queen”

    1. I'm really excited to read the closure of this series and I hate I'll wait until it's published in Spanish so it matches my copies.

    2. 3.5 stars A super dramatic finish to the series, with some expected outcomes, both happy and sad.Overall I still think the first book, The Impostor Queen, is probably my favourite of the three, but as a whole the series is quite good.

    3. You can find this review and others at arctic booksI read the first novel in this trilogy, THE IMPOSTOR QUEEN, last year, and I absolutely adored it. Continuing into the second and third books, I am again incredibly impressed by Sarah Fine’s storytelling skills and unbeatable imagination when it comes to magic, fantasy, and political intrigueE TRUE QUEEN brings both the characters Elli and Ansa together in this action-packed finale. I loved both women separately and I was so excited to see the [...]

    4. *Source* Library*Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*The True Queen is the third and final installment in author Sarah Fine's The Imposter Queen trilogy. The True Queen tells the story of both Elli and Ansa simultaneously, unlike the first two books, switching point of views seamlessly and alternating from one to the other in current time. If you haven't read the first two books, then I will be careful not to spoil anything that happened previously. However, in order to give readers [...]

    5. The True Queen by Sarah Fine is the final book of three total books in The Impostor Queen series, and it truly leaves no stone unturned. The True Queen is the most brutal and most relentless of the series by far, continuing upon previous tradition with The Cursed Queen (book 2), and its unforgiving and determined warpath by the Krigere horde against those who live comfortably in the surrounding city-states. The True Queen tells the story of both Elli and Ansa simultaneously, unlike the first two [...]

    6. 3.5 starsCan’t believe I finished this in one day. Phew. What a journey. I’m so glad that I got to reunite with Elli after not seeing her for a book. I feel like she’s such a strong character, though I liked her better in the Imposter Queen, mostly because she sometimes acted like a brat here, always to Raimo, who was nothing but supportive and kind and didn’t deserve that treatment. But I’m so glad I got to see her again, she makes the series way better. I have to admit though, the fi [...]

    7. This was a book I had been waiting for. I was sadly disappointed! When I invest in 3 books I do not want to end up crying throughout the book and feel hollow by the end. I just felt that this book left me with nothing to be joyful about for the characters I invested in. I am not a person who needs all happiness, I love a tragedy but not all heartbreak and my soul feeling empty by the end. The writing was beautiful and I got what was being portrayed I just will say it is not what I want to take a [...]

    8. Now that Ansa knows she is the destined queen of Kupari, she is desperate to find a permanent home for her people, the Kriegere, in the Kupari lands. But as the small band of warriors crosses into the foreign territory, Ansa loses her fragile grip on her newly-acquired—and violent—fire and ice magic and puts everyone, including her love Thyra, in danger. Inside the walls of Kupari, Elli maintains the facade that she is the magical queen, with her secret—that she has no magic at all—on th [...]

    9. I'm really glad I read this series. It definitely had some problems (sorry to say, I'm not a fan of first person or present tense so both in the same book was not great for me), but it also surprised me, subverted my expectations, and made me truly feel for Elli and Ansa and what they went through. I loved the unique premise, even if the world could have been fleshed out a bit more in my opinion. Right now, I'm actually ready for a sequel series that shows how the Valtia deal with the aftermath [...]

    10. YAY, what a thrilling and satisfying conclusion to the Impostor Queen series! The prophecy of the most powerful Valtia (Queen) has come true. However, it is shared between two, Elli who has been groomed to rule the Kupari kingdom her entire life, and Ansa, a fierce Krigere warrior. (Did they remind anyone else of Sansa and Arya?)Both of them share an unwavering loyalty to their people. They also have a shared enemy – a manipulative, bloodthirsty, and power hungry Kupari priest set on destroyin [...]

    11. So when I first read "The Imposter Queen" I was like "what if the Valtia out there and Elli end up together!?!?" That was my OTP at the end of "The Imposter Queen." Obviously "The Cursed Queen" came out and they were both neatly parired off with relationships I both liked a lot going into "The True Queen." At about 25% (view spoiler)[Thyra dies, and I was like "ok great, bury your gays" (hide spoiler)] but I was like but what if (view spoiler)[ Oskar dies, too, and then Elli and Ansa can be toge [...]

    12. I've enjoyed this series from the start and was looking forward to the last book. I'm desperate for more f/f stories, especially in genre fiction. But WHOAH there was a massive disappointment that came out of nowhere and completely ruined my view of the series: (view spoiler)[Partway through this book, one of the girls in the f/f ship DIES. FOR GOOD. Are you kidding me?! I am so sick of the Bury Your Gays trope. Can't a queer person pick up a book without encountering dead queers??? I think the [...]

    13. I really loved the first two books in this series, and although I enjoyed this one, I didn't like it as much as the previous two. This might be due to the fact that I was reading it on a day when I was staying home sick, but also this is the first book in the series with multiple narrators, and it was difficult for me to keep the two story lines straight as the narrative voices were very similar. I also felt like the ending of this story dragged on a bit more than necessary; I found myself skimm [...]

    14. I read this book because I enjoyed the first one, thought the second was OK, and at that point figured I was invested enough to find out how things turned out. However, I wasn't invested enough to reread the first two, which meant that I had very little memory of the many, many secondary characters, which might have reduced the impact a bit. Also, things turned out almost exactly as anticipated, with a couple twists in the middle. The pacing was breakneck all the way through -- people were const [...]

    15. What an absolutely outstanding finale to this series! I can't even think of any criticisms. The book switched from Elli's POV to Ansa's. These were two very different and yet similar women who didn't know whether they were supposed to be enemies or friends. There was so much action in this book and so many tears. I won't give away any spoilers, but not everyone makes it out of this one. It was devastating, but still, I thought the ending was just perfect. Loved this whole series!

    16. I had trouble getting into this book. I think the first book was the best in this series. Perhaps if I read them back to back I would have been more invested in them but with the lag as each was released my interested waned. I still liked Elli''s POV the best throughout the series. I think the chapters could have been shorter especially in the beginning and the pacing would have been better. I finished it, and it was ok but it took me a lot longer then it should have.

    17. This series has been an emotional roller coaster and it all finally came together when ansa and elli meet.  Their some emotional death scences in this final story.  Just when you think you know who all the bad guys are you get thrown for another loop.  The political maneuvers are intense in this story.  In the end they both do what ever is best for the land.  It a wonderful story.

    18. In all honesty this was almost a 5 star read & maybe one day will be once I get over my feelings about a certain character.There was so much I loved about this book especially after not loving book two as much as book one. I just prefer Elli to Ansa in every way.

    19. I AM CRYING. Tears of sadness, tears of joy, tears of frustration, and tears of happiness. I can't believe this lovely trilogy is over. I want more, but couldn't have asked for a more suitable ending!

    20. This book was moderately good. Sarah Fine never fails to create strong female protagonists. It was definitely a good way to spend my weekend; however, this series is a slight disappointment compared to Fine’s other series, Guards of the Shadowlands (which is a must read).

    21. Before readingCan't wait for this to come out. One thing I wonder is who's p.o.v it will be in since book 1 was Elli and 2 was Ansa. As much as I love Oskar and Elli; and Thyra and Ansa, I'm kind of hoping that Ansa and Elli will leave the one they love for each other since they are each half of the Valtia. The Valtia is a queen yes, but it's also about the magic of fire and ice and with it the balance. Ansa has the power with no balance(without the cuff of Astia) and Elli has the balance but no [...]
