The Queen's Choice - Cayla Kluver

I've been looking forward to this book for a long time, and finally got it. . . only to be completely disgusted with the main character in the first 50 pages.

 

I mean, how stupid and selfish can she be? I'm convinced she's trying to break a record for the most selfish character ever (and she only fails because there are, unfortunately, some characters out there whose only personality is that they're selfish).

 

She has two choices: accept the crown in place of her either one of her two cousins who can't handle it, or refuse and try to force the better of them onto the throne--when no one has even seen or heard from him in ages, and he is quite possibly dead by now. Which does she choose? The latter. UGH!

 

Also, her narrative is almost exactly the same as Alera's from Legacy. *sigh* And she's also another princess heir who refuses to just go along with what the current ruler thinks is best for their people. *SIGH*

 

On the bright side, the Fae's powers are awesome and the writing is beautiful, so yay! It's not all bad, I guess.

Uh. . . I really love Justin? A lot? He's a sweetheart, and he's adorable, and he's tough, and an idiot, the poor thing, and HE'S AROUND MORE IN THIS ONE YAAAAY!!! XD XD

Honestly, the darling bought Sheila a rose when he didn't even want her following him (you poor, precious baby, how could she not try to keep you safe? What kind of a monster could help themselves?), and he wore a 'disguise' (seriously, Justin? Pfft) that he hated because it would make her worry a bit less. *bubbles hearts*

 

Sheila, don't you dare let the idiot get hurt. Ever. In any way. Thankfully you're sweet and awesome, too, so that shouldn't be a problem! :D Take care of him, though. Seriously. 

Obviously he's going to protect her from Curtis. He's too perfect not to.

(spoiler show)

 

 

Curtis! Curtis returns!!!! *cheering* He is one of the shortest, most adorable, most awesome villains ever. EVER. Please stay. Preferably don't kill any of the awesome characters, but STAY. DON'T LEAVE! YOU AREN'T AROUND ENOUGH! (He leaves, doesn't he? *cries*)

 

Michael is still adorable. :D Gosh, some of these characters need to be around more. (Just don't detract from Justin's camera time. At all. Just magically be around more, or something.) Oh, yeah, and Michael's an awesome evil demon, too--with wings, mwahaha. Keep it up!

 

What happened to this review, anyway? This is just me ranting about the characters. . .

 

Uh. . . The plot. I don't care much for it, but that's okay, because Justin is around!!!! *bubbles hearts, then remembers previous train of thought before Justin shattered it* I've got to say, there aren't very many assassination attempts in this one, considering it still goes on about them in the book's synopsis. There isn't much action, in fact. Hm. I guess you can't have everything?

 

Anyway, I'm dying to read the next one--conveniently sitting at my elbow right now, new and shiny, taunting me--so I guess that's the entire, useless review. *waves*

I'm totally just writing reviews so I can throw in some pictures at the end. *sighs, beats self up, does it anyway*

 

Uh. . . Anyway. (I'm already repeating myself *sighs again*) This book was good. It was a nice, quick, entirely inoffensive book that made my day just a little more interesting (thanks, book! XD).

 

I like Caesar. He always has a not-so-bright look on his face, and I've seen similar characters all over the place, but I like him anyway. He's my favorite--probably because the princess fainted twice in like ten pages near the beginning, which made for a rough start.

 

Loki is whiny. Waah. (See, he makes me cry just thinking about him.) I didn't dislike him, I guess. He's whiny, though. Whaah.

 

I'll probably end up liking him, and then I'll be mad at myself for making fun of him. That's usually how it works with my stupid brain. *shrugs*


I do want to read the sequel, I think. I'm not dying for it, but I definitely liked it enough to keep reading. That's something, right?

 

Oh, and the art is pretty good, even though I think the artist has trouble with facial expressions. . . or maybe Caesar really doesn't have coherent thoughts in his head. Either way, it's a lot better than Kuroshitsuji some art I've seen. The cover is beautiful. Her hair is really red, though. It kind of hurts to look at.

Why am I complaining so much, anyway? I liked it! Truly. I think I'm just arguing with myself again. *shuts up*

 

 

 

Lancelot, Princess Arthur

 

 

Kent, Amnesia

 

 

Yes, Gareki, you're adorable. (Karneval)

 

 

Chitose, Toki no Kizuna

 

 

Shuuya, Clock Zero

 

(I admit, I just like writing down their names. Ignore them.)

I really wanted to read a new manga and my family just happened to be going to a bookstore, so I decided to pick this up despite the fact that it's obviously based on an otome game--which means it'll no doubt turn into a darned romance/harem thingy at some point. *sigh*

 

The premise didn't even seem to my liking, but the art is pretty, otome games usually (sometimes?) have awesome characters (which is why I'm totally addicted to them), and I figured the MC had potential to be something other than a clumsy, uncertain, entirely decorative, generic otome MC since she was an assassin/bodyguard.

 

So, I picked it up, read it, and WANT THE SEQUEL. Seriously, I LOVE the characters. Sheila, the MC, is awesome. She's tough without being a slap in the face, knows exactly what she wants, and even though she's kind of an idiot for being entirely, completely, all-consumingly loyal to her prince, I kind of love the fact that she is; I've had way too much of scatterbrained MCs recently.

 

Curtis is sooo cool. He's evil and creepy, and he looks like an adorable kid--he's about five feet tall, and doesn't really have the right to call anyone weak, considering the size of his wrists. XD Please let him be around more in the next book. Please.

 

Justin is (wow, I'm so repetitive) also awesome. And. . . so is Edvard. And Marshal.

 

And I could swear Meissen is Ace's long-lost little brother, or something (which is a good thing I guess, because I adore Ace).

 

Michael is adorable (Okay, I'm officially insane now--I called both the demon and the master assassin adorable).

 

This review is utter nonsense, and needs to be stopped (but I might as well say that Ronalus is awesome, too. And that I love Sheila and Marshal's relationship. And. . . Right. End the review. Almost).

 

I just really want the sequel. . . really. . .
