Thank you so much to Gallery/Saga Press in providing an ARC of Lisbeth Campbell’s The Vanished Queen in exchange for an honest review via Edelweiss.

A tyrant king and he is dying. His two sons are plotting to claim the throne before one of their father’s allies claim it themselves and continue the tyranny across the kingdom. While the two brothers hatch an intricate plan, another is being boiled by a revolutionary group slowly becoming bigger.

Told in three perspectives, including the vanished queen, I wanted to like this. I really did. Unfortunately, I didn’t and I ended up skimming most of it. By 20% of the book it hasn’t really moved forward and I was forced to put it down.

I’m not posting this, of course, to point out how I didn’t like it. I guess it wasn’t what I expected it to be, and it wasn’t as fast paced as I wanted it to be but the story really has potential. It might not have sat well with me but it might be perfect for someone who comes across this. I definitely recommend this book to those who love epic fantasy focused more on politics and world-building instead of the usual romance and magical ability-esque epic fantasies.
