Publisher's Summary

Xandra Vardan thought life would be simpler when she accepted the goblin crown and became their queen, but life has only become more complicated. Everyone - vampires, werewolves and humans - wants the goblins on their side, because whoever has the goblins - wins.
Queen Victoria wants her head, Alpha wolf Vex wants her heart, and she still doesn't know the identity of the person who wanted her blood. What she does know is that a project from one of the 'secret' aristocrat labs has gotten free and she's the only one who can stop the perfect killing machine - a sixteen year-old girl. With human zealots intent on ridding the world of anyone with plagued blood and supernatural politics taking Britain to the verge of civil war, Xandra's finding out that being queen isn't all it's cracked up to be, and if she doesn't do something fast, hers will be the shortest reign in history.

Loved it

Great book. Really enjoyed it. Xandra is such a great main character and Locke does a very nice job with all the supporting characters as well. Really good plot.

The narrator does a really nice job with all of these.

Too much Xandra Drama!

I really enjoyed the silliness of the first two in this series. This third book lost me. It might have been the exaggerated sang-froid reading by Moira Quirk that made the lead character sound like she was so bored with it all, that lost me.

Quirk became aggressively nasal in her delivery as well, so her reading for Xandra was unpleasant. That tone made it hard to focus on the story. The other characters were consistent with the first two books, so it was definitely Xandra's voice, 75% of the time, whinge-ing on and on in inner monologues and digressions. it was just painful.
