The Queen

by Jennifer L Armentrout

Published by Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated

The King must have his Queen....

Bestowed the forbidden Summer’s Kiss by the King of the Summer fae, Brighton Jussier is no longer just human. What she is, what she will become, no one knows for sure, but that isn’t her biggest concern at the moment. Now Caden, the King, refuses to let her go, even at the cost of his Court. When the doorway to the Otherworld is breached, both Brighton and Caden must do the unthinkable—not just to survive themselves, but also to save mankind from the evil that threatens the world.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**


Steamy New Adult Exciting



The Queen by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the third novella in the Wicked series, and continues immediately after The King left off, continuing Brighton's, and Caden's story.

I loved The Queen. I love all three of the novella's that have come out in the Wicked series, actually. The story is original, intriguing, and action packed. With a dash of humor, and a sprinkling of romance and sex, The Queen is an awesome addition to the series. I think my only issue, is the story feels incomplete. It ends very open ended. We could be left to form our own conclusions, or, Jennifer has another set of novellas planned (as The Queen is the final book in The Summer King Novellas)

The Queen's core characters have remained consistent throughout the series. This novella covers a very short span. Maybe two weeks, so there isn't much to look at for character growth, except perhaps them all learning a lesson on honesty. Brighton and Caden's relationship remains one of my favorite couples from Jennifer's work. Brighton's sweet and kind persona, mixed with her courage and strength, is a wonderful match to how Caden acts when he is King, and when he is only with her. He is kind, and fair, but is brutal when he has to be. Very much like Brighton. We get way more Tink in The Queen, which is great, considering we barely saw him in The King. We get a little bit on Ren and Ivy, and in the epilogue, which I assume is around two years in the future, we get an update on our favorite couples from this series that puts a smile on your face.
