Captive was a disappointment but I'll still read Queen because what can a gal do when Ms. Carter here has created a character as enigmatic as Lennox Creed?

*Sigh* The things I do for you, Knox.



Of course I'm also interested to see how the romance angle would play out in this book seeing as although Kitty is in 'love' with Benjy and they're in a relationship, it just seems like a plot device with Benjy as the ever cardboard character who disappears for the majority of

The cover is just awesome with the hexagon-shapes that made me think of scifi, especially the TV Show Orphan Black. I knew it that the eye will have the "X" symbol! Plus the tagline is quite similar to what I made A move that will end it all. And the book - In the final move, you win or die. Can't wait to read it!

Pawn. Captive. Queen.

“People like you hold their loved ones above ideals. They’ll do anything to protect them, no matter what it costs. But me—I hold ideals above people. No single life is as important as this revolution, not even mine.”

The conclusion to this trilogy did not impress me. While the last 50 pages brought me back into the Rebellion, the rest of the book left me not caring about the characters and their fates. Overall 2/5 stars; Pawn and Capture proved superior to Queen.

I've loved this series and even though I still enjoyed Queen, there was one thing missing. One pivotal point that it should have ended on. All that tension and nothing.

Where's that bloody novella when you need one?

"Sometimes you have to sacrifice your Queen to capture the King."

Queen is the third and final installment in The Blackcoat Rebellion by author Aimee Carter. The narrator/protagonist continues to be 17-year old Kitty Doe-Hart. I added the last part because, let's be real, using the Doe name alone absolutely makes no sense. Especially since the revelations about who Kitty's real father and mother were in the previous ins

So good! I kind of wanted more of Knox and Kitty but the possibilities that you can imagine from the end of this book are countless. This was probably one of the most frustrating series' I've ever read, the villains are so beyond evil you can't wait to get to the conclusion where the heroes win! Such a good series and great finale! ...more

I dove into Aimee Carter's Queen, yet again not remembering the previous events well. This is the problem of a reader who reads too much! LOL. Though, luckily, Aimee does a good job of giving us enough of a recap to see where we are at the beginning of the story. And once again, we find Kitty working with the Blackcoats in order to bring Daxton Hart down once and for all.

We know now that the man claiming to be Daxton Hart isn't the real Daxton, but Victor Mercer as Kitty learned he was Masked as
I want to say something about the series in full that I found amusing, but it's a spoiler.

We had Benjy shoved down our throats from Book 1; Chapter 1, and I don't know if you read any reviews for the other books, but consensus was that Benjy was boring and Knox was the one we wanted. And Benjy was boring. Kitty and Benjy were dating from before the story started, and we were all just expected to like him. All I remember about Benjy is--

a) red hair
b) can read

Any and all chemistry with Knox would

Queen is the final book in the YA dystopian Blackcoat Rebellion trilogy.

The narrator is 17 year old Kitty Doe.

There will be some spoilers from the first two books.

In Pawn Kitty Doe was surgically transformed (Masked) to look like Lila Hart (the Prime Minister's niece). Lila was supposedly dead and so Kitty took over her life.

Kitty was working with the Blackcoat Rebellion. In Captive she was sent to Elsewhere and held prisoner.

In this society your rank dictates your life.

I'm so conflicted. I spent almost the entire book rolling my eyes, getting mad, and even kind of yelling at it. It was repetitive and I felt like the story was going nowhere; the same things just kept happening over and over again. Kitty annoyed me, I was kind of only here for Knox and Greyson. Then, a few chapters from the end, I started to feel things and I was really excited to see how everything was going to play out. But like I said, that was only a few chapters from the end, so the majorit ...more

Queen was an intriguing political thriller that kept me hooked.

It is a young dystopian novel that focuses on Kitty Doe, a Blackcoat rebel whose job is to help expose and overthrow Prime Minister Daxton Hart, better known as Victor Mercer.

I liked the protagonist, Kitty Doe, whose perspective changes. When Knox dies, Kitty is overcome by a wave of emotions- feelings she does not fully understand. In previous times, they would always bicker, never agreeing on important matters. She always saw him

This was a good end to the series. The inevitable romance was a bit (incredibly) slow in coming, but there were some truly emotional parts and some really good action too.

I don't think I enjoyed this series as much as the Goddess series, but it's still worth a look.

Being the last in a trilogy, it moved along a little slowly, but it was a good read. The title is also misleading, but that's not a big issue. The characters did some developing and both good and bad guys died, so the plot was believable. ...more

One minute you're happy the next minute you scream "NO!!!!!" on the top of your lungs. A few moments in the book I had to stop and take a breather to process everything that's happened because it's mind blowing what Kitty has been through. This book is awesome but I honestly like Captive better. I was so upset this was the last book but I was satisfied with the ending. I would recommend this book to anyone who's into The Hunger Games or Divergent. The Blackcoat Rebellion Series has definitely be ...more

Captive was such a thrilling adventure that I was afraid Queen wouldn't live up to everything it had built up to. Allow me to put your worries at ease.

Plot: Queen has so much happen for only 288 pages, but still seems to be the right length for this series ender. The trouble with a concluding book is that it's hard to avoid spoilers, so unfortunately, I can't speak too much for the overall story. You can guess that the ante has been upped like never before; lives are lost and Carter pr

Full of just the longest fluff speeches ever. It's pretty insufferable.

The one thing the series had going for it was the relationship with guess how that goes. All the pretty speeches in three books about how she would never leave Benjy and how he's her everything, she gets over him awful fast. Kitty even recognizes her and Knox do not get along, oh but I guess that makes him the one for her. He doesn't trust her, speak to her nicely, loop her in, or just be decent in general. Benjy

I really got into this the first book in this trilogy. I could not wait to wait to read book two. I instantly put the second book on my list to read. I still have not read it yet but I am not one of those types that has to always read books in chronological order. Maybe if I had read book two it might have changed my perception of this book. Although, I don't think it would help that much. I was disappointed in this book. It felt like there was aa lot of talk but not a lot of action. Not until t ...more

I love when a book makes me feel a wide range of emotions and this book definitely did. I was honestly really shocked by a lot of things. This book needs to have more people reading it!

Finally Kat decided to go for the right man. Only took her a couple of books. Overall, I loved the end of this series. The only thing bothering me was that the ending seemed a little rushed, but enough with the judging on my part, it was still an amazing book!

The book kept me interested the whole way through. At parts it seemed to drag on but overall I was happy with the ending.
As far as YA dystopian novels go, Queen by Aimee Carter was pretty good. There was nothing extraordinary about it, but it was a good ending to The Blackcoat Rebellion series. There was a good amount of danger and action in this final book of the series, but I don't really feel like this is a series that is going to stick with me at all. It will probably blend into a hundred other YA dystopian novels with similar plots involving a dystopian United States where for some unfathomable reason the onl ...more

After how much I hated Kitty in the previous book, I didn’t think there would be any way to redeem her character. I was pleasantly surprised though. She was still annoying a lot of the time, but she was much more tolerable in this. The main problems I had with Kitty surrounded the romance with Benjy and the crappy way she treated Knox. For most of the book, Kitty was separated from the two guys and it seemed like she was more focused on the things that mattered, like the revolution. However, Kit ...more
