I feel like I've waited for The Traitor Queen for years instead of months. Also, I currently feel half-dead and can't quite believe that Lara and Aren's story is over. I adore Danielle L. Jensen as a person (she's awesome) and after months wondering if she was going to break my heart, I finally have the answer to that question: yes. She broke it a few times over the course of 66 chapters and every time it was totally worth it.

The Traitor Queen was action-packed, and Danielle L. Jensen played

Just in every single way, amazing. This is an angst fest filled with action and adventure and love and passion and anger and revenge and just, oh my god its so damn good! This book picks up right where book one left off and we get to see the ramifications of everything that unfolded at the end of the bridge kingdom. We travel multiple lands here and deal with a great many traumas but all while fighting an impossible enemy with nothing but hope and a prayer. And its just so so good! I would give ...more

So a friend of mine said that Sarah J. Maas have no balls to make some pretty hard decisions. Well, Danielle L. Jensen definately has that fire. Oh dear god, I freakin love that! Excitement and adrenaline from the first to the very last second of the audiobook, my heart has not been exposed to such emotions for a long time. Cant wait to read it again, this time on paper. ...more

This was an incredible follow up to The Bridge Kingdom! I loved this even more than the first and I definitely didn't expect that. The pace was perfect; it was fast but still very easy to keep up with and always left you intrigued and ready for more.

The Traitor Queen had a perfect mixture of romance, fantasy, and political intrigue. One of my favourite parts of the book was getting to know Lara's sisters more. Their characters added a lot of complexity to not only Lara's story, but

Why is Amazon telling me I have to wait until SEPTEMBER for the book when the audio book comes out in February?! I also don't know how I'll be able to wait for the 3rd. If there even will be one. Please, please, please be more than these two!

Well, Im not even sure if Im actually breathing! Danielle is a cruel, cunning and masterful creator of the types of stories I crave. I cannot recommend this series enough and if you have any sense, youll pick it up immediately! My heart has been pounding all day as I devoured this stunning tale of deception, war and atonement. We need more books like this in the world! ...more

I have been looking forward to this sequel to a book that surprised and captivated me, leaving me with a cruel cliffhanger and the promise of more. I was pretty sure the author would deliver, but was still surprised by how fast she had me by the throat - again. A few scenes in, and I was in the middle of it, with all the feelings, rooting for the heroes and their people. Wow. The story is, again, very brutal and full of fights and desperate situations. I loved it so much. The only complaint I ...more

I am still reeling from this amazing installment and conclusion. This was everything I wanted and more. Lara and Aren forever.

I was a little worried about this book, since the last one ended with me screaming at the h for not just coming clean, which would have saved them from ALL OF THIS, but I have to say I was very happy with the outcome. Especially the 2nd half of the book. I've would have loved to see a little more of "afterward" (I think most every story needs a little bit of an epilogue), but I'm guessing that we'll see little flashes of their lives together in what I can only assume will be a spin-off series. ...more

I absolutely ADORED The Bridge Kingdom, the first book in this Bridge Kingdom series. It was the most intense listening experience I had ever had while listening to an audio book. I was on the edge of my seat, sometimes in fear, sometimes in sadness, and sometimes in love. It was an amazing audio book. After the AWFUL events of the ending of that book I was breathlessly waiting for this second book to come out. I NEEDED to see Lara find a way to make things right. So much.

It all comes good in the end...

I've been planning to write a review for The Traitor Queen for days but I struggled to find the right words to express my feelings. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook and found it extremely hard to pause and step away from this action-packed story.

I loved getting back to The Bridge Kingdom but admit to having a hard time with how long it takes for Lara and Aren to be reunited. It was even harder knowing that Aren is feeling betrayed by Lara and hates her
