    Thank you to Harper Voyager for an electronic ARC of this book, provided through Edelweiss. I picked up the first book in this series just a few short months ago. I was immediately drawn into the world that Sarah Beth Durst created. I do enjoy some YA and fantasy books, but they have never been the genre that I spend the most time with. As soon as I finished the first book, I started the second one. I didn't think that it would be possible to lov...

    Electronic ARC provided by Edelweiss. "The Queen of Sorrow" is a great end to an original and well crafted female centered fantasy trilogy. The plot of this book obviously deals with the issues left at the end of the previous volume. Aratay now has two Queens, something that has never happened before, while Semo is still being torn apart from the presence of too many spirits. Now that all of the characters have been fully established in two previ...

    Why does this series have to end? I love it so much! I want more books in this world. I want to read more and more about old and new characters. I want to learn everything there is about the folklore and the mythology and what's going to happen to everyone after everything that happens in this book. Why does this series have to end? I want to stay in this world and not come back. I don't often feel this way for another fantasy world. The only one...

    The Queen of Sorrows: Book Three of The Queens of Renthia by Sarah Beth DurstKudos! Again! This would be my third Kudos to Ms. Durst. She drops back into Renthia and very nicely wraps up the trilogy. This volume shows human ambition and spirit strife in conflict. Daleina comes into her own while striving to hold together her fragile kingdom. Ven the champion and Naelin, the new more mature queen have much greater roles in this book. There is plen...

    The first thing I look for in a fantasy novel is a map of the fantasy world at the beginning of the book. "Queen of Sorrow" has one, so that earns points right out of the gate. I love when writers do this. It shows that they have thought way too much about the setting of their stories, about details they might never use. This one is an old-school fantasy novel, and I mean that as a compliment. It's part 3 of a trilogy, but I read it without readi...

    Fitting ending to the series, but there could have been more - there are other lands that are finally mentioned and that we get a glimpse of and are left hanging. Interestingly, Merecot becomes more sympathetic while Naelin becomes less so. Daleina? Just static, as are the rest of the characters. That's unusual for books like this and one that made me wonder what the author's motivation was for that choice, particularly since this is the end of t...
