For the last decade, King Lazuli of the Eastern Empire has systematically taken over the world. No one knows much about him other than a series of impossible facts: he cannot die, he has not aged since the conflict began, and he wants to rule the world.
All Serenity Freeman has known is bloodshed. War has taken away her mother, her home, her safety. As the future emissary of the Western United Nations, the last autonomous region of the globe, she is responsible for forging alliances where she can.
Surrender is on the horizon. The king can taste it; Serenity feels it deep within her bones. There is no other option. Now the two must come face to face. For Serenity, that means confronting the man who’s taken everything from her. For the king, it means meeting the one woman he can’t conquer. But when they meet, something happens. Cruelty finds redemption.
Only in war, everything comes with a price. Especially love.
The Queen of All that Dies begins when Serenity is required to go with her father to meet the king. They have been in war for years, and the king is the cause of massive destruction of the whole world. Serenity has been a solider for most of her life, and she knows what she's going in to when she has to meet the king. However, she never could have predicted it to go down the way it did.
This book blew me away and surprised me. I went into this book not really know what to expect, but what I got was a whole lot of awesome. I adored the plot line it was so interesting, intriguing and different that I couldn't put the book down.
It held the kind of power where I was left reeling at the end, and wondering which was up and down. Serenity was a huge part of greatness to this story. She's one of the fiercest heroines I've ever read about, and I loved her. Serenity had to do things most people would have just run away or died, but she had the strength to go through with it all and it was admirable.
And then there is the king. He's the man you hate, yet come to love for some reason. He's this horrible person, yet he's really kind of not. This is the part where things start to make you all jumbled inside.
Overall this book was very very good! I really liked this one even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I'm very excited to read more.
