Gargoyle Queen, Book 3
Synopsis: Magic reigns, plots abound, and a new love might not conquer all, in this must-read finale to the epic Gargoyle Queen trilogy by international bestselling author Jennifer Estep.
Time is running out for crown princess Gemma Ripley. Despite being a cunning spy and a powerful mind magier, Gemma hasn’t been able to track down the most dangerous enemy her kingdom of Andvari has ever seen. Adding to her worries is the Sword and Shield tournament. With gladiators flocking to the capital city of Glanzen, Gemma can’t tell who is friend—or foe.
Determined to protect Andvari at any cost, Gemma hatches a bold plan, but things aren’t what they seem. Soon, everything she holds dear is being threatened, including her burgeoning relationship with Prince Leonidas Morricone.
With the kingdom she holds dear slipping through her fingers, Gemma will have to conquer her fear and unlock the true secret of her magic—or watch her friends and family die and her beloved Andvari fall . . .
Review: I couldn’t wait to dive into the last volume of this trilogy and find out what would happen to Leonidas and Gemma.
Back home, but accompanied by Leo, Gemma will have to face the prejudices of her people towards the Morricone. It’s not easy, especially since she can hear people’s thoughts. But Leo is there and that’s all that matters. However, an enemy is approaching and our heroine is determined to bring him down, even if she has to use Leo’s mother and sister to do it. Her plan will quickly fall apart and she will have to do everything she can to keep her kingdom from falling.
I had a great time with this third volume. I was thrilled to see Gemma and Leo again. They will have to deal with strife between their people, plots, and magic that is more powerful than ever. I thought the series was ending here, but as the story progresses we learn that there will be another trilogy about, I understand, Leo’s sister and I have to say I am curious to find out more about her!
