Goodreads Description:

Sixteen-year-old Elli was a small child when the Elders of Kupari chose her to succeed the Valtia, the queen who wields infinitely powerful ice and fire magic. Since then, Elli has lived in the temple, surrounded by luxury and tutored by magical priests, as she prepares for the day when the Valtia perishes and the magic finds a new home in her. Elli is destined to be the most powerful Valtia to ever rule.

But when the queen dies defending the kingdom from invading warriors, the magic doesn’t enter Elli. It’s nowhere to be found.

Disgraced, Elli flees to the outlands, the home of banished criminals—some who would love to see the temple burn with all its priests inside. As she finds her footing in this new world, Elli uncovers devastating new information about the Kupari magic, those who wield it, and the prophecy that foretold her destiny. Torn between the love she has for her people and her growing loyalty to the banished, Elli struggles to understand the true role she was meant to play. But as war looms, she must align with the right side—before the kingdom and its magic are completely destroyed.


Review:

Thank you so much Simon and Schuster and Imprints for sending me a copy of The Impostor Queen for review. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.


I was so excited to read this book. I have to say it was even better then I ever could have imagined. This book is magical from beginning to end. From the details of the grueling schedule of the Queen and soon to be Queen. I loved the dynamic of unrest in the kingdom and the manipulation behind happenings inside the kingdom. The current Queen has the balance of ice and fire but slips of unbalance are wearing her down.


Elli is the future Queen. Born of magic. Copper has affected their people and some are born with the perfect elemental balance of Fire and Ice. Elli is believed to be one of these select few. She is suppose to be the most powerful Queen that has ever ruled until things go horribly wrong and she runs for her life beyond the gates.


She soon encounters Oskar a hard working hunter who supports his tribe. He has secrets he is keeping and so does she. Oskar is a protector and Elli is under his protection. Will her secrets destroy everything they have built and fight to protect. 


Impostor Queen was unique and took elemental and high fantasy to a new level. I loved the political unrest that kept the pace going throughout. Through the pages you take a journey with Elli a girl who has been told who to be her entire life but grows and learns to be the person her kingdom will need. I am so in love with this book and can not wait for this series to continue. This is a must read!


About the Author

I’m the author of several books for teens, including Of Metal and Wishes (McElderry/Simon & Schuster) and its sequel, Of Dreams and Rust (coming in August 2015), and the Guards of the Shadowlands YA urban fantasy series (Skyscape/Amazon Children’s Publishing). I’m also the co-author (with Walter Jury) of two YA sci-fi thrillers published by Putnam/Penguin: Scanand its sequel Burn (which will be published in 2015). My first adult urban fantasy romance novel, Marked, will be published in January 2015 by 47North/Amazon Publishing, with the sequel, Claimed, coming in March 2015. When I’m not writing, I’m psychologizing. Sometimes I do both at the same time. The results are unpredictable.
