Review: Kill The Queen is Amazing!
Kill the Queen - Jennifer Estep
  • Thanks to Edelweiss + HarperCollins I got an e-arc in exchange for a review

My full review is on Goodreads

 

I enjoyed reading about Lady Everleighs experience at Seven Spire Palace and her growth as a character with Serilda Swanson's troupe of Gladiators. It was quite formidable how much she changed, and I couldn't put the book down. She loved people in general and fought hard to save her country because she was the Winter Queen. Her friendship with Paloma had me in tears. It was so kind and genuine. She learned how to fight from always getting knocked down and beaten, to winning death matches, gladiator fashion, with a sword dagger and shield in an arena! You go, girl! The tasks she thought were useless while living in the Palace of Seven Spire, proved to be critical and useful for saving her life. Baking and dancing.
She was a Bellonan; good at playing the long game and outsmarting the opponent.

Crown Princess Vasilia is the daughter of Cordelia the Queen of Seven Spire and Bellona. Vasilia is a powerful Magier with a black heart. When her mother Cordelia invites noble guests from Andvardia to negotiate peace, Vasilia massacres the lot of them and kills her mother and injures Everleigh. Everleigh has magic but keeps it a secret. She is immune to magic and can smell it a mile away. Everleigh gets thrown out of the palace when blasted by Vasilia's lightning and falls into the river below.

Touch of Frost
Touch of Frost - Jennifer Estep

I've been meaning to start this series since I've enjoyed her "Bigtime" series. Nice shout out to Karma Girl BTW. If there was a shout out for her "Elemental Assassin" series- I missed it since I haven't started that one yet. 
Gwen is a gypsy and she has the gift of psychometry. She can touch anything and get the history of the object, or feelings if a person. I found I was annoyed with Gwen for part of the book because of her disbelief of mythology (it's not real!). Come on, she has a gift, her mom, and grandmother too, so her whole attitude was aggravating. I thought she was judgmental, dismissive; however, by the end she was much less so. She learned, which was a plus.
I was a little disappointed in the shallowness of all the teenagers. Especially the girls. I am glad that Daphne was more than she seemed and made the first move towards friendship with Gwen. Morgan was called a slut so many times I didn't appreciate that (and the guys that slept with her? Meh.). On the flip side, Logan, was referred to a "man whore" a few times. 
Not sure how I feel about (I'm assuming) the future love interest. On the plus side, it's a slow burn. On the negative side, he is openly dating (and I assume sleeping) with other people. Not. Crazy. About. That. I think Gwen deserves better.
Nice twist with the murder mystery, Jasmine, Nike, Vic, etc.
Oh and did you know Gwen's mom is Grace and she is a Gypsy? 
YA square for Ripped Bodice Bingo (and that gives me a blackout!).

First Frost
First Frost (Mythos Academy, #0.5) - Jennifer Estep

Introduces Gwen and her paranormal ability. This is short and tells how her mom died and it was decided that she attend Mythos Academy. A few characters are introduced. Calling it now- Logan is going to be the love interest.

Also just off library waitlist.
The Spider (Elemental Assassin, #10) - Jennifer Estep

I'm likely to just star rate rather than review this 10th in series.

 

 I expect it will certainly deserve a review, but once I'm so far into some series I seldom have anything new to say.

 

On the other hand, description says it's her origin story.

Just starting, fresh off library waitlist
Heart of Venom - Jennifer Estep
Dark Heir - Faith Hunter
Magic in the Shadows - Devon Monk

I waitlisted these in anticipation of Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon on April 28 — they came early.  Guess I'll have to get reading ...

 

Odd how all three have similarly colored covers.  I was just waitlist ing according to "next in series."
