Blair Reynolds was born to rule. Worlds, that is. Destined to reign over an ancient intergalactic race, it may seem her fate is written in the stars. But she’s willing to risk it all for another chance to spend forever with her true love – even if it means traveling through time and space to the other side of the universe.

As far as Ash is concerned, Blair's happily-ever-af

MONARCH paints an achingly beautiful love story from beginning to end. The alien history is expertly woven in so none of it felt overwhelming and all of it made perfect sense. The setting, the conflict, the tension all added to a satisfying (yet slightly open-ended ... perhaps there's a companion story to come?) conclusion that had me closing the book with a sigh. Belle Whiitington--you have now become one of my favorite authors!

I received an advanced reader's copy of this book.

Monarch is the last book in Belle's Cicada trilogy and I couldn't have enjoyed it more! Get ready for a wild ride, as this is definitely the most thrilling, suspenseful, and racy book of the three.

I really loved Cicada and Firefly and was on the blog tours for both of those books, so I was very excited to be given the opportunity to be on the last blog tour for this last book in the trilogy. I’m feeling nostalgic! Monarch is a bit of a hard book to review, just because I feel like the things I loved about this book are the same things I loved about the first two. Plus, I don’t want to give anything away!

Monarch is probably the most exciting book in the trilogy, as things are getting real

Brilliant storytelling of a thrilling sci-fi tale that wisks you to another world with characters who never let you go.

Amazing. Absolutely one of the best sci-fi series out there, with a touch of paranormal and full of magic. I love this series and it continues to amaze me with Ms. Whittington’s vivid imagination and how she manages to weave such an intricate tale with ease with rich characters and an even richer history, is just brilliant. So addictive and I really never wanted the story to end

It's so hard to say goodbye to the friends we come to know and love in books. I have to say the final book in Whittington's Cicada trilogy was hard for me to read simply because I've come to think of the characters as family.

The author began this amazing series with a simple country girl named Blair. She loves horses, adores her grandparents, mom, brother, and friends, has just the right mix of tomboy and toughness, and wants to be a veterinarian. Somewhere along the way, the path she was on to

Belle Whittington tells a wonderful story of love and adventure in Monarch, the last book in the Cicada trilogy. From the minute I started reading I was hooked on this book. Its is non stop action and suspense throughout the book and the love story is a sweet and beautiful one. This book had me on my toes, crying, laughing and smiling. I was unable to put it down from the beginning to the end. unfortunately I wasn't able to read the first two books before getting into this one but Belle did a gr ...more

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Every question the last book left me with was answered. Blair has so much information thrown at her about herself and her past and now she has so many decisions to make, plus the has to survive the jungle and those hunting her. I love how this story played out. We get some alien history plus a beautiful romance that is so much deeper and involved than I ever saw coming. I don't want to risk spoilers, but there was so much deapth offered up in this book. While

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Belle has taken the UFO culture and given it life. There are aliens, hybrids, UFOs, flying saucers, abductions, scientific experimentation, the leaving of messages to oneself through the manipulation of reincarnation. Then there are the Hunters determined to exterminate the aliens. Add to this the drama of the human world like the triangle of love interests and the seeking of power, control and personal agendas. One easily attaches to certain

The only bad thing was , I should have read the others in the trilogy. you do get swept into the story and is a complete page turner. The story is about Everett and Blair's love story. Even reading just the third story, I still was getting an understanding of Blair and Everett.

I did however not like Ash, he feels like Blair is his and won't stop at nothing to get her. Will Blair go against everything to be with the human man she loves?

The story was different than what I normally read, but Belle

This was a good book. Interesting and quite a page turner. I haven't read the others in this trilogy yet and will have to now. I could totally see myself falling in love with these books. A story about love surviving secrets. Its full of thrills and suspense. Sci-fi and alien lovers would enjoy these books.

Belle resides somewhere north of Houston, Texas in a small inconsequential town with the smallest most inconsequential name. There, in the shady reaches of the pines, elms, and oaks, she daydreams of adventures and secrets that she weaves throughout her stories.

Belle adores her readers and fans. <3
