Publisher's Summary

Out of money and out of options after her yearlong exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, feared dominatrix in the Underground.
While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice. Will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go or trade in her crown for Søren's collar?

A Fitting Conclusion

'The Queen' brings everything full-circle. Going from the present-day wedding of Griffin and Michael, then jumping back in time to re-tell parts of Nora's story during her time apart from Soren, I am amazed by the complexity of this story. Even though the content had all been covered, loosely, in earlier books in the series, reading Nora's account added a new perspective. Like another piece in a complicated puzzle, each book in this series unveils details and truths that were previously hidden. Little by little, it all comes together.

This book covers multiple time periods, but focuses predominantly on Nora's time training and working as a dominatrix. Nora's emotional state and motivations for leaving Soren are explored more closely this time around. Surprisingly, she maintained a closer, albeit strained, relationship with Soren than I had imagined during their estrangement.

As with earlier books in this series, I continue to be awed by the dynamics of the relationships between the multiple characters. Soren, Nora and Kingsley are especially intriguing. The love, trust and intimacy is almost tangible between all of them. I've never read another story where the author was actually able to pull off a storyline based on polyamory in a believable, sincere manner. Yet, time and again, Ms. Reisz makes it work.

This time around, I did find myself a little vague on some of the details from previous books. It'd been awhile, so I had to refresh myself on some of the details surrounding the supporting characters. With a little skimming of the other books, it all came back though.

Ultimately, everything didn't end the way I had hoped or envisioned. However, I understood why things worked out the way they did and accepted it, even if I wish I could change some of the details. Still, this is a great series and one of my favorites.

I love this series! I feel as though I know all the characters as family.
