a very fun read
I was eager to read Beth Bernobich's second book in her River of Souls series, Queen's Hunt. The first one, Passion Play, introduced the reader to the world of Ilse Zhalina and Raul Kosenmark, a world rife with politics and magic. It was one of those books that you find yourself reading in one sitting, because it is just that good, but also trying to slow down as you reach the last pages, to make it last.
Queen's Hunt picks up right where Passion Play left off. There's been a horrible fight (or has there?), and Ilse has escaped the wrath of Raul by taking a post at a faraway brothel.
Set some time aside and stock up on snacks, because you're not going to put this book down until the oh-my-goodness-how-did-that-happen ending. It is all melded seamlessly into a tale that will leaving you regretfully turning the last page, hoping for more.
And yes, this book *can* stand on its own, you don't need to have already read Passion Play. But, if you have not read the first book yet, you are very lucky. You will have something to occupy your time while the rest of us are whining and begging for the next book in the series. Though, now I think on it, mayhaps I will indulge in a re-reading of both books while waiting for Ms. Bernobich's next masterpiece in the River of Souls series.
