Thank you toBookSparks PR and Sparks Press. This is the second installment of the Queen of Hearts series. The first novel in this series introduces us to Dinah and the others in the castle in Wonderland. What will happen in this phase of her journey?
Dinah has fled Wonderland Castle with her stead Morte. Morte used to belong to her father the King of Hearts. Why has she left? What are they running from? Where will she go? What happens when the King of Hearts catches up to his daughter? The answer comes in Sir Gorann he helps Dinah escape capture and head to the king’s enemy Yurkei. The way is not easy for Dinah she must learn a great deal about herself and what she is capable of. A final question comes that changes everything for Dinah and her path. What will she choose?
I have not read the previous novel in this series by Colleen Oakes. I chose to share this novel because I am a fan of the authors work. I was not aware of who Dinah (Princess or Queen of Hearts) is. The first fifty pages tells the story of what led to Dinah’s escape. The rest of the story leaves you wanting to find out what will happen next.
The characters of this novel are very distinct. Dinah has her strengths and her weaknesses. What could she learn from being naive at the beginning of the novel to the grown women at the end? How does the king’s behavior impact those around him? The choices of each character determines how the plot will proceed in this novel.
When I finished this novel it reminded me of the dystopian society. What will happen in the third installment?
