Publisher's Summary

AD 1320 - Madelayne Gray d'Ebreux is the queen of all that is lost. Her child, her husband...everything. Or, so she thinks. The same battle that killed her husband resulted in the serious injury of her husband's commander, Sir Kaspian St. Hever. As Kaspian lays badly wounded, Madelayne is asked to tend to the man in a most unconventional and intimate way. Instead of using her milk to nurse her child, who was born dead, she nurses a man who is forbidden solid foods because of a belly wound. And so, an unusual and sometimes erotic relationship develops between Madelayne and her patient.
Kaspian is tended by a woman who offers him her breasts as way of sustaining his life. At first, he looks at the situation as a necessity, but he soon comes to crave it. He struggles to keep his feelings from the widowed woman, but it becomes increasingly difficult. For a man who has known little compassion or kindness in his life, Madelayne comes to represent everything he has been missing. She soon becomes to represent everything he wants, and he wants her.
Join Madelayne and Kaspian on their journey through life, loss, lust, and passion in this adventure-packed and unconventional medieval romance. Can Madelayne finally change her stars with Kaspian's help?

Would you consider the audio edition of Queen of Lost Stars to be better than the print version?

I did not read the book but enjoyed the audio.


What other book might you compare Queen of Lost Stars to and why?

I know nothing to compare it to. Much of the book's content is quite unique; like when Madelayne fed the knight with a stomach wound her mother's milk to keep him alive.


What does Brad Wills bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing him read the book is like watching a movie or play. He has the ability to change the different character's voices so they are clearly identifiable. Each voice seems to fit the character portrayed. Brad Will's voice for Sir Kaspian St. Hever was excellent, as well as Madelayne Gray d'Ebreux's. The old healer's voice was irritating and sometimes hard to understand, but you certainly knew who it was when he spoke.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both, laugh and cry.


Any additional comments?

There are some phrases and scenes that would be very improbable in 1320 AD, like "eye candy", etc. It didn't flow as well as some Le Vegue books, but still entertaining. Bottom line; it's a lot of entertainment in 8+ hours. Well worth a credit.

Le Veque and Wills: The Dynamic "Medieval" Duo!

It's been a while since I've read anything by Kathryn Le Veque so during a recent sale I snatched this one up. I don't think I've ever been disappointed in any of her books. You can always count on a good story with adventure, engaging characters, romance, and love!

if you've read the Publishers Summary you know that the story-line of this book is very unconventional or unusual, but I have to say it works. It is written so eloquently that the story doesn't feel perverted or disgusting. You realize how unselfishness and embarrassment sometimes can bring about a greater good.

Brad Wills is the narrator King of Medieval type books. He truly enhances the listening experience. ;-)

This is a Adult only listen as there is descriptive sex and language.
