silly sci fi-Light
I liked the first book, even though the story had giant holes in it and it was light on details to make the story work. It was entertaining and I liked the characters. The story was a little silly. A highschool kid, being chased by the law is grabbed and made the leadrer of the world against evil space aliens. Yeah, that could happen. His powers were fun though.
This book continues with the evil aliens killing humans that had surrendered just because they did not like us and planning to annihilate Earth. They like to wipe out planets and kill everybody. It is part of thier culture. So with our fearless leader leading we beat the aliens with fanciful technology we got from other aliens they had killed.
Rather than destroy these evil guys we sit down to talk. Our fearless young hero's wife convinces the evil leader of the aliens that he was wrong and hated humans for no reason. He sees the error of his ways, So the wife Says" the aliens are our friends now so lets give them our technology!"
At this point I would have thrown a physical book across the room, but I really did not want to break my new Iphone.
I like Sci Fi and I have read Bad sci Fi before, but this should be in the childrens fairytale
"If we just talk to the evil people who want to kill us for fun, they will like us and we can all be friends " section. I am sorry I wasted credits on this series. Buyer beware!

Good book but series turning into a morals lecture
This started off as a really good series but in the second book it seems to be taking a turn where the author is continuously lecturing us on how we should treat others the way we want to be treated and how popcorn is the greatest thing in the world so much so that it takes away from the book itself. Plenty of books have that hidden agenda where they try to tell you to treat others well, some are little bit more blatant and have the characters talk to other characters about how they should treat others. In this series the author actually steps outside of the entire book to give you the lecture directly and it is so repetitive throughout the entire book to the point of where it is extremely annoying. I have already bought the next book in the series but if it keeps on heading in that direction it will be the last book in the series that I bother with.

Great SciFi series
If you could sum up The Power of a Queen in three words, what would they be?
Who was your favorite character and why?
TAG - he is the original "underdog" with special abilities, who has risen
What about Liam Owen’s performance did you like?
Excellent narrator - almost hypnotic reading tone keeps you captivated - good for relaxing !
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
This SciFi is not ALL about space-fights - although there are plenty.
The Queen is powerful through her empathy, compassion, care and forgiveness - as well as her technology and psychic powers.
Any additional comments?

The storey is ok, it is along the same lines of many similar books, war and then everyone making up with each other and coming together to fight an even more wicked foe,to quote I will carry on with the rest of the authors books when they availible.
