Oh my, this was this worst book in the series everyone mated to each other no one remembering the main character the back and forth confusion. Only listen if you want a headache. It is a shame because this was one of my favorite series and now I am going to stop here. I am sadden because it was so unique and interesting and the author dropped the ball.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Queen?
The hot tub.
Any additional comments?
Lissa is back, and she isn’t happy. Not only is she stuck three hundred years in the future on a world far from Earth but she has also been mistaken for a boy. Just as she begins to find out who she is and what she has lost she finds herself back in the kitchen, using her skill around food to wow those who treat her like a slave.
This series is full of fantasy creatures, races, and skills. Nothing is too far-fetched or far into the future for Suttle and her vampire queen. I must admit that I did get a little lost with the alien races but the story kept me riveted, regardless.
Lissa’s character has held me since book one and although I don’t understand why she still covets her relationship with Gavin, I do appreciate her other relationships. The book is full of steamy scenes, none too explicit, and she is spoilt for choice but it still holds a little romance in between every hot male of every alien race wanting to bed her.
If you like a strong female lead, then this will drive you crazy because Lissa is at one moment strong and powerful and the next she is sucked back into patriotic bureaucracy with no power at all. Despite not being able to grasp who was who I really enjoyed the story and will be reading the next book in the series.
I don't tend to review audible books but those one needed to be said.
I usually love this series, it's sucked me in.
However this one was weird.
I still love the main character even with her flaws but this story felt really clunky. It felt like the author mashed 3 books into 1 because she really wanted to change the direction of the story as quickly as possible.
It's straight on from the last book, no lead in or recap at all... Really confusing unless you've just finished the last. Then it settled a little and then suddenly everyone had a million lovers. I have no problem with open relationships or multiple partners but this has the subtlety of a sledge hammer. I really think the author got lost trying to do too much in this book and nothing was done well.
I still like the series but I really hope the next book isn't as all over the place as this one was.
Narrator annoyed me in places, some of her voices are flat and slow.
