In the final volume of The Hundredth Queen Series, Kalinda will risk everything to save the man she loves.

Kalinda has brought peace to the Tarachand Empire, at least for now. Bhutas no longer need to hide their gifts. The last of the rebels have been banished. And Prince Ashwin is set to take over as rajah.

But for Kalinda, this all came at a great loss. Her childhood home.

I enjoyed having a fun series to escape reality with. The Warrior Queen is a satisfying ending following 3 storylines that tie up all the loose ends and give us a happily ever after we wanted. The Kalinda arc explored the afterlife and the relationship between the mortals and the gods; the Ashwin arc (was probably the most entertaining) it dealt with political turmoil and a threat of rebellion; the Deven arc had the least amount of action as his story was one of reaction and survival.

Many thanks to Emily Griffin and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

Great way to end this series! This may have been my favorite of the four. A trip to the underworld, an impossible rescue, a coup, and kickass women warriors! Three points of view too. I read it in one day. Especially loved the fairy tale the Rani’s journey was based on. And the demons are quite original. Of course I never get enough of Bhuta powers. Excellent creation.

***** 3.5 Stars *****

Cannot be read as a standalone.

Not really impressed. Decent ending to an interesting series.

Kalinda is trying to save Deven from the Void. Prince Ashwin is trying to unify his nation. Deven is trying to survive in the Void.

I think this series should have ended at the 3rd book (with a different ending). I've lost interest in the storyline and characters.

So many adventures! Finishing this book was bittersweet as it marks the end of a beautiful series of Sisterhood, Love, and finding your way through the darkness. I hope to revisit this world again in a future re-read of the series. It is one of my favorite YA Fantasy reads!

An epic conclusion to a standout debut YA fantasy series. It's no small task to develop character arcs, expand a world, and enrich a magic system over multiple books, and Emily R. King does it incredibly well. I love this series, and this last book exceeded my high expectations. Well done!

Here it is! The last volume in the Hundredth Queen Series! I've been waiting to read this book since the last book left me in such a hanging over the cliff place. This is a series I've been reading since the very beginning and it is always both exciting and sad to reach the end.

I have to say that this book was slow for me. I had a hard time staying invested in it, which seems awful to say. There were moments that I absolutely loved and the ending with everything wrapping up was good. Satisfying.

i don't know if i should read this, it just gets more disappointing with each book.


nope. i've thought it over. can't do this to myself. the ending in the previous book was good enough for me.

One of my favorite fantasy series ever featuring one of my favorite main characters ever. Emily is such a strong writer, and I love how the final book in this series brought everything together. Beautiful and entertaining!

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exhange for an honest review.

Darkness holds secrets few see or seek. But when one spends as much time as I do studying the shadows, they reveal unique textures that brush over my skin.

4 Stars.

After the decline in me liking books two and three I aticipated to like this one, but not as much as the first one. I believed that this series did not need a fourth book and man was I wrong. This conclusion was everything I could have wished for and I think this is

Well, that's finally over.

I'll begin with a positive. The cover is my favourite of the four. The colour, the fire dragon = perfect.

Everything else was not worth getting into. It pains me to say it, but this is a story, a series, that would have been better if written by someone else. What should be a vibrant and magical tale falls flat in world-building, characters, dialogue, and overall writing. It's funny, but every time I read one of these books on my kindle, I'm reading a hardcopy that paral

I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley.

Ehhhhh...I think that sums up my feelings on the entire series, especially The Warrior Queen. I was not all that impressed with this one, and out of them all it lacked the most action. There were some parts that dragged and seemed to take forever to happen. This isn't the kind of series that enraptures and whisks you away someplace special and magical. I don't know that there really needed to be a 4th book.

The most beautiful and emotional end to a series I have ever read. Emily R. King wields magic through her words.


“You are a warrior. You were born to shine. Embrace how powerful you truly are and carve your destiny from the sun.”


Even hours after I finished reading this book all I could say was “WOW”. I’m like Howie Mandel from America’s Got Talent after that one performance and all he could say was “WOW”. All e

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, which had some really inventive world-building. I like a book set in a harem, with concubines and wives jostling for prime position, and The Hundredth Queen made that way more literal, by having the women physically battle for rank. This was really clever and led to some really exciting politics within the harem. However, with the death of the rajah at the end of the first book, I feel that this series lost what made it so entertaining to me. It wo ...more

This is how you write a finale. I will admit the beginning was slower than I anticipated which made me put down the book for a day or two, but my curiosity made me pick it back up and I’m glad I did. It was a slow burn, building little by little allowing the reader to put the pieces in place. Once I got started again I did not want to stop reading. The closer to the ending I got the slower I read because I did not want the story to end.
I greatly appreciate the themes of love, women’s independen
Even with the disappointment of the previous installment not being the finale, I was too invested in the series and characters not read the conclusion. Thankfully, there is indeed a proper ending to the story arc. This could have easily been a two or three book series, much of the last two books felt unnecessary. I enjoyed the story, but it was overshadowed by too many endless plots.

I would not discourage anyone from trying this series, but it isn't one I recommend either. Overall, the subseque

Nice ending

I was pleased with this ending to the series. I thought the author did a good job of tying things up in a neat bow, as I suspected she would.

Round up to 3.5 stars. This wasn’t quite as engrossing as the previous books, but it’s still a fitting conclusion to the series. Review to come at AAR.

I really did not enjoy this book. It felt long and drawn out and I frequently found my attention wandering. I feel the series could have ended without this book

As the final book in the Hundredth Queen series, this was a pretty decent wrap up.

The first 1/3 of this book was a little… dull, filled with Kali mooning over Devon and Ashwin figuring out how to run a damaged kingdom. It wasn’t until Kali decided to find the entrance to the Void that it started to get interesting again.

Kali’s part of the story was very good. A good part of the previous stories focused on the god’s and their roles in the world. It was good to finally meet one of those gods and e

We all need to reach deep down inside of us at times to be all that we can be. We are more than we think we are in most instances and taking the journey with Kalinda as she discovers her true heritage and who she really is was and how she can conquers the road blocks and battles the demons on her way was a great read. Learning that rising above a heritage that is less than honorable is a great challenge that Ashwin handled with steadfast efforts. Changing what has been requires courage, even in ...more

Let me start this review by being utterly honest in saying I wasn’t looking forward to The Warrior Queen after my request was approved. I was at first, though! I’d gotten all the Hundredth Queen books as ARCs through Netgalley and even though I didn’t really like the first book, I gave each new instalment a chance. That worked out really well with The Fire Queen that’s the one I like best! But not so much with The Rogue Queen which was okay. I wanted to give this final book in the series a fair ...more

This review was originally written for Book #1 but copied into books #2 and #3 and now #4 having just finished it.

So far, I've read the all of books in this series and so my review is for all of them thus far. And I listened to them which is an important distinction. The narration is somewhat theaterized (different people for different characters...)

I hesitate to give these books a 4, and if a 3.5 of even 3.75 was available, I'd give it that instead. However nothing has necessarily annoyed me wi

All your favorite characters return in the finale of the Hundredth Queen Series including some names you thought were long gone. Kali embarks on her mission to find her love, Deven, who was taken into the evernight (the equivalent of the underworld). No mortal has ever ventured into the evernight and come back out but she's determined and when she's able to enlist a god to help her, she finds out more about herself than she had ever thought possible.

I absolutely fell in love with The Hundredth Queen series by Emily R. King. It just has such a beautiful and intricate world, I dove right in and wanted to know more about it. It’s got incredible magic, hidden princes, badass ladies who kick a lot of ass and an absolutely swoony ship that had me going ‘just get your act together already’ for three books! But this one takes the cake! It is my favourite out of this quartet and that probably says something about me, because I’m pretty sure this one ...more
