He wanted a warrior queen. He got a revolutionary.
As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.
But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.
Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.
The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King is brilliant. I absoultely love the characters and the story line. I fell in love with this book right away.
Kalinda is an orphan and lives at one of the Sisterhood’s temples. After Kalinda gets chosen by a benefactor to wed, she is taken away from her beloved home.
I really enjoyed Kalinda’s story. She really grew up and showed a lot of promise I am looking forward to diving into book two. These characters are amazing! This story is written so well and I enjoyed everything about it.
