This Droon book was decent, without being particularly thrilling. Each of the Droon books seems to follow a set pattern: first, in our world, the three kids Eric, Neal and Julie, grouse about how much they want to go to Droon. Then something happens to indicate that it is time to go back, they rush into Eric's basement to activate the rainbow stairs. Descending the stairs, they see something disturbing before running into one of their Droon friends. The Droon friends inform the kids of some emergency, and then they all travel for a bit. Then there is a climactic conflict, followed by the kids ascending the rainbow stairs "until next time."

Quest for the Queen is no different. You may recall that Princess Keeah's mom, Queen Relna, has been cursed to lose her human form and to continue shape-changing periodically. You may also remember that Keeah has her mom's bow-harp, which is inlaid with jewels containing a pictorial history of Relna's life (past, present and future), but that two of the jewels have been pried loose.
