Her enemies have stolen the man she loves, and they await her at the gate of darkness. Her country is on the brink of civil war, with her own soldiers ordered to kill her on sight.
Her Royal Majesty, Queen Lucero-Elisa née Riqueza de Vega, bearer of the Godstone, will lead her three loyal companions deep into the enemy's kingdom, a land of ice and snow and brutal magic, to rescue Hector and win back her throne. Her power grows with every step, and the shocking secrets she will uncover on this, her final journey, could change the course of history.
But that is not all. She has a larger destiny. She must become the champion the world has been waiting for.

The narration was phenomenal! The story was good, but not gripping or really exciting. it did have some good plot twists though.

Great finale

This was a wonderful end to an exciting trilogy. I really liked the character development and the development of friendships and relationships over time. The only thing I didn't care for was Hector's POV, which wasn't in the first or second book. Some reviewers said the narrator for Hector did a poor job and I would disagree. I don't think he did a poor job but his POV was bland compared to Elisa's, maybe because much of his POV was done without interacting a lot with others. I also think that the narrator tended to read at a slower pace, so it did stand out next to Jennifer's faster paced reading. Still, I loved this book and thought Rae did an awesome job.
