Nyna Queen does an exceptional job diving deep into the minds of her characters, and her imagery and use of metaphors are at the expert level. I really, really loved this story and all the characters. Well done!
I absolutely loved this book! Once started, I just didn't want to stop reading. The main characters are so fascinating, yet relatable. The author manages to create a magical world of its own kind and a complex storyline. The reader can't help but to join this thrilling, magical, dark and twisted adventurous chase. I can't wait for the second book of the series.
After just a few pages you immediately feel like a part of the world, as you are observing from within, watching the events unfold. It is a well-paced book, fun to read and has a range of very different protagonists which you can't help but like. If you enjoy magic, action and a great twist on reality packed into a nicely flowing storyline, it is well worth the read. Can't wait for the second book!
Absolutely loved reading this book. The story is engrossing, and heart pounding. It makes the heroine, Alex, a real person with heartbreaking social stigma, and shows her amazing heart in the lengths she goes to keep some kids safe. I loved how the hero, Darken, was shown as powerful with a double edged sword. The difficulty in staying in control felt very real, and I loved how important his personal relationships were in reinstating and maintaining that control. It is an exciting and well worth the time read. The book is left on a cliffhanger, and I can hardly wait for book 2. I’ve put Nyna Queen on my author watch list. This is superb storytelling.
Nyna Queen with her fantastic imagination and beautiful writing style, she sucks the reader into her debut novel By a Thread Book 1 in her Trueborn Heirs Trilogy. I will say I was sucked in from page one; I found it to be completely enthralling from the very beginning. In the world she has created of amazingly unique characters, much like Alexis Harper, I wasn’t sure who I could trust. The world building was well done, and the characters were simply fantastic. Each character was well developed and felt natural. Alexis's story is mysterious, intense, dark, shocking... And many other wonderful adjectives. Alexis Harper was a great heroine. She kept a vigilant eye out on her surroundings and kept both her head and her sense of humor. She was tough, clever, and a truly likable character. I can’t RAVE enough on how much I LOVED This BOOK. And DID y’all see that COVER OMG Beautiful Cover would be an understatement. I truly can’t wait for the second installment.
I do not want to spoil it. But this is a great one. A perfect balance of Urban Fantasy thrills and romance. And some comedy to keep me smiling. Alex is a character you become invested in. And I am looking forward to book two. Ms. Queen has positioned herself as one of the best new authors I have ever read. Excellent work. I would go into further detail but that would spoil the story.
I LOVE the characters! Alex is such a great, tough heroine, so funny and smart. A girl who doesn’t need a man to fight the battles for her. She hasn’t had it easy in life, but beneath the hard shell, she’s still this girl with secret dreams in her heart. And Darken...wow! l adore it when a character can be both dark and good at the same time and even when they do something horrible, you still can’t help loving them so much! This book is nothing for the tender-hearted, but omg it made me laugh so hard and kept me on the edge of my seat all the time. If you like a spicy, funny but also slightly dark story, with deep characters, conflicts, sudden twists and constant danger hanging in the air, I can only recommend this book!
I couldn't put this book down. It has a really unique group of characters and a fresh story. The author has a wonderful imagination. I can't give anything away, but the ending has me anxiously awaiting the next installment with baited breath!
I didn't know what I was getting into when I started this book. I was intrigued from the very beginning by a spider shifter or shaper as they are known by in the world. The actuality of what I got was so much better. This book is 100% paranormal, 90% action and suspense, with 10% romantic tension, a bit of angst, and wry/ sly humor. There is so much woven together with the plot, characters, and landscape that it's hard to not love everything about this book. The story is brought together with seamless writing and world building. The author brings familiar together with the unfamiliar to where everything seems normal. As if, one could walk out their door and enter into the Jester without an issue. The characters are all a little flawed, making them and their backstories relatable. Alex has plenty of snark, but also compassion. Darken is Darken with his nature he was born with and that of his conscious. If you want a book with a mystery interwoven with suspense and a sprinkling of a romance then this book is for you.
Nyna started reading fantasy books at the sweet age of six (in fact, as soon as she could read) and never got out of it. After she finished her law degree, she finally decided to commit herself to a career as an author. When she isn't reading a book or dreaming up another story, she works as a lawyer, indulges in way too much coffee and enjoys long walks in the sun. If you are looking for Nyna, you'll likely find her behind her laptop, hitting the keys, writing down her latest novel ideas - careful, if you speak to her now, she might not remember later!
Right in this moment, Nyna is probably working on the second book in her Trueborn Heirs Series: Web of Lies.
