Series: Sanctify Series Book #2
Author: Katee Robert
Blurb: When Jenny O’Keirna gets a chance to slip her older brother, the new king of Hansarda’s, leash, she jumps at it, even if it means playing babysitter to a too-smart-for-his-own-good inventor. She’s not expecting the attraction that sparks between them—or that Sanctify is just as desperate to take him for their own. Never in Mac Flannery’s wildest dreams did he imagine Jenny would be the one sent for him. He sees beyond the mad grin the sexy princess of Hansarda presents to the world, and that combination of vulnerability and wicked humor is a siren call he can’t resist. But Sanctify is always three steps ahead of them. On the run—and unable to keep their hands off each other—Jenny and Mac devise an insane plan: kidnap the leader of Sanctify, and stop this war once and for all. Unfortunately, they’ve just played right into his hands…
Thoughts: Queen of Wands was a bit of an odd read for me, and my reactions to are so varied that it is a little difficult to rate this book. On one hand, the book was distinctly original – the world, the characters, the story, etc. Yet on the other, it was also somewhat predictable – for instance, knowing right away who the ‘bad guy’ of the story was. And this was not the first conflicting reaction I had – again, on one hand, it seemed to sort of drag on and on – yet at the same time, there was so much adventure and action to it. All in all, the whole thing was just one big contradiction for me – which also left me wondering at times if I actually liked or not!
Bottom line: I enjoyed the story but it was a bit all over the place for me.
