I was fortunate to get an early copy of this book and tore through it this week. What a delightful, fun fantasy about sisterhood! Thoroughly recommended; I loved getting to return to the this world.

This is f/f historical fiction (about Malaysian witches, I heard?) so of course I'm reading it!

A worthy sequel to Sorcerer to the Crown. Just a warning Prunella and Zacharias do make an appearance but in a very limited capacity, which actually bodes well for the story. Instead, this novel opens with two sisters, Muna and Sakti, washing up on the sores of Janda Baik with no memory of who they are. To make matters worse, Sakti seems to be under the effects of a curse and her body slowly disappears. Muna on the other hand possesses no powers. Mak Genggang, the witch of the island, decides to ...more

Zen Cho's follow up to "Sorcerer to the Crown" (2015) was one I was eagerly awaiting and it didn't disappoint. In "The True Queen", Muna and her sister Sakti wake up on the shore of Janda Baik, cursed and suffering from amnesia. They are taken in by the great Malaysian witch Mak Genggang, who sends them to England to be helped by the Sorceress Royal. Unfortunately, the Queen of Fairy has declared war on England, and Muna is caught in the middle of it. Solving that problem as well as ridding Muna ...more

This book was received as an ARC from Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and Thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This was the first book I have read in a long time that it took a while to get into. It wasn't until almost beyond halfway into the story that I really started to be pulled in and really fully grasp the full plot of the book. Once I got into the story, I could not stop. This book was really enticing from the climax all the way to th

A tepid follow-up to Sorcerer to the Crown, which I really enjoyed. Zacharias and Prunella are minor characters in The True Queen, and the main characters in this one are not nearly as interesting. Also, the way the magic worked (especially involving the true nature of the True Queen) didn't resonate with me.

I'll read another book set in this world if it's about Zacharias and Prunella; otherwise, probably not.

I read an advance reader copy of The True Queen from Netgalley.
