THE QUEEN’S CHOICE
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Kluver’s Heirs of Chrior trilogy starter has it all: romance, danger, suspense. Alas, it doesn’t really hold a reader’s attention. Protagonist Anya is not very interesting, nor does the supporting cast manage to enchant. Large swaths of the novel also seem to be missing any action. One strong point of the novel is the setting: Much detail has obviously been put into creating Anya’s world. Overall, a miss.
Anya’s life is forever changed the night she learns that her aunt, the Queen of Chrior, is soon to die. Not only will she be losing a cherished family member, but the queen wants Anya to take the throne upon her demise. Anya is sure that she is not the person who should eventually be queen, but she also knows that the only other available heir, her cousin Illumina, is not cut out for the job. Thus begins Anya’s quest to find the queen’s lost son so that he can take his rightful place on the throne. (HARLEQUIN TEEN, Feb., 512 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780373210923, HC, 14 & Up)
