Queens are wild was a quick and fun read. Not knowing what to expect from one minute to the next, left me anxious to finish each chapter, and unable to put the book down. Without giving too much away, the book is about a 17-year old girl named Margeaux, who unknowingly gets dragged into helping take down a traitor to America. A girl in the 1980's with no special abilities, other than her beauty, Margeaux finds herself in a different time with some pretty special powers and the ability to kick as ...more

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Queens are Wild by Jack Chaucer stars young 17 year old Margeaux, who gets stuck in detention one lovely Saturday afternoon. Suddenly, in a crazy turn of events, she and her classmates are sucked into time travel and a wacky sort of chess game. Her goal: to save the world from world domination. Will Margeaux be able to overcome all odds and defeat a Pirate King at his own game?

I have to admit it is very difficult to try to summ

Fast paced and full of energy!
Not a bad book though I did tend to have a bit of (bad) language problem with it.
Some of the characters used words and sentences that ,in my opinion didn't do them just.
They kind of didn't match the image i got of them.
So in times i was thinking:"What? He said that? No way.."
or "Common,how can she talk like that..that's so out of her character.."
Then there was the sf problem,i just think it wasn't explained good enough,
the jump in the future and a few other things

I feel like the blurb for this book only scratches the surface. Queens are Wild is led by spunky, level-headed teen Margeaux Quigley, who is dragged fifty-two years into the future to save her presidential self from a crazy billionaire who wants to be king of the world.

Queens are Wild brings a fine balance between politics and thrilling action, creating a stunning plot unlike anything I've ever seen. It was definitely a fun read.

My only complaint is that, in some spots, there was a bit too much

Rated 4.5: Jack Chaucer’s “Queens are Wild” is fast-paced, well-written and utterly gripping! The idea behind the invention is creative; a unique twist to the game of chess, making the plot compelling and action-packed. The only criticism I have, and the one and only reason I didn’t give 5 stars to it, was the feeling I got from the female character in the very beginning. I felt the narrator skimmed the surface of a typical female stereotype, but as the story progressed I became more invested.

A Titan brought low.
The intricate moves of the ancient game of chess are now set in a time shift filled with doppelgangers. What at first seems just another pawn in an ego-driven king's game of power, makes her way deep into the enemy house and 'queens' herself, again and again.
This is a story full of surprises; one that moves with pace from a 20th century schoolroom with the usual belligerent pupils, through a human, but surreal, chess matrix, into a future where a brash rich man plots to foun

Queens are Wild is a must read via Smashwords. Holy shit this one was hard to put down! Strong language, well written storyline with great editing skills. I liken it to The Breakfast Club on steroids, hastily time warped into terror. With jaw dropping twists as the plot thickens, from bikini clad women jumping out of planes to hanging on yahts, this book was most def action packed. And of course, who doesn't like a beautiful heroine in a bikini? "Check, asshole!" Entertaining & all around qu ...more

“Queens are Wild” is gripping from the start and holds you hostage until the very end.
Jack Chaucer delivers an intriguing idea of time travel and follows it up with a side of female kick ass action.

There are things that work well for this story and Margeaux Quigley the female protagonist is at the top of the list. She is self confident, athletic, intelligent and always ready to defend herself as well as her country. Muc

The story of a 17 year old girl transported 52 years into the future to 2036. The adventures of sci-fi, attitude, and courage with a twist of some of our current events thrown in. My only time of confusion was what she saw on deck while standing at the railing with King Ballantine.

This is a great read. I couldn't put it down.
I've never seen a concept with this idea before, very original.
A good story that kept me interested from start to finish.

This was a fast paced and enjoyable read. There was a disconnect for me between the character’s personalities and their overall actions. I didn’t find that the character flow worked in the novel for me. I also found a lot of the sci-fi aspects to be under explained and developed, I wanted more to the story.

Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
