    Revenge to the Fullest

    Growing up in the streets of New York, Renee found herself lost and lonely. Yes she had a mother and sister, but they were both against her. She was molested by her stepfather. After running away from home, she soon found herself in a position of power, running New York while keeping a low profile from her family and enemies under a new name - Jordan. Will the streets find out Renee's true identity?

    “Renee: All Hail the Queen” by Brandie Davis is a book that keeps you interested from start to finish. I liked this book and recommend it because it was a true page turner. I liked that it provided a different element of drama and that it was from a female perspective. It was very creative. The characters were well developed and very realistic. You could actually envision some of the scenes in the book because of the great way it was written. It was a book that I truly enjoyed and because of this I give it a 5-star rating.

    Look out now!

    Brandie writes like a pro and not as a first time author! She developed a character as Shrek would say with so many layers! She takes you on a journey to peel the layers away and then when all is revealed you learn the meaning of it all. Or do you? There was so much going on it did take a while to process everything, but boy once I started putting the pieces together I couldn't swipe fast enough to turn the page! Renee is full of drama, betrayal, deceit, lies, murder and the ending leaves you wanting more! Don't sleep on Ms. Davis, she's one to watch! I look forward to reading part two :D

    I loved the way the author started this story the way she descr


    I loved the way the author started this story the way she describes her scenes is like I  was there. I love a story where the author is so descriptive that I  could picture myself in the scene. Renee is living the life in her plushed out Condo sitting on her throne looking and observing the city no scratch that, her city New York. She is invincible with her army of bodyguards and her pounds and pounds of dope that they push through her city yep she had all the things her money could buy, the latest cars the most recent fashions but the one thing that her money couldn't buy her was a new life . The kind of life where her step-father didn't rape her and her mother is so in love with him and hates you so much that she lets him do it. Renee's childhood is something that she still cant escape which has made her a very heartless unemotional person which is causing a problem between her and the man she know she loves but is afraid to. As she tries to come to grips with her life she has people from her past as well as the present seeking revenge on her even her sister Page gets in on it angry at the fact that her father chose Renee to rape instead of her. Yeah I know sick right?  This  was  a very well written out story about a totally dysfunctional family and the repercussions from it, being raped and abused by someone who is suppose to love you but didn't protect you can lead to many problems in life for not only  the abused but for the family as well by saying that I mean it caused Renee to be scared of love and show no emotion and for her sister Page it was hate and revenge. This book had a lot of interesting characters that played there part really well it was never a dull moment in this book it kept me on the edge of my seat for the whole read and there was know editing problems at all which made it even smoother to read the author found her plot and stuck with it never straying from the story and it was realistic and refreshing to see a female gangster for a change. Kudos Ms. Brandie for a fantastic read and I look forward to reading pt. 2 in the future.

    Renee is captivating. I finished this book within a matter of ho

    Renee is captivating. I finished this book within a matter of hours and I was simply in awe. Renee's heart is just as cold as mine and even though she isn't real she spoke to me. Ms Brandie Davis did outstanding with this book with each page I read I held on to each word as if  the book was for me lol. Even when I was finished with the book I read some chapters because they hit the nail on the head as long as the Arthur keeps writing I will always be a fan. Hopefully Renee's reign won't end with her sister

    I am giving this book a 4.5. Brandie Davis is a new and upcomin

    I am giving this book a 4.5. Brandie Davis is a new and upcoming author. Her first novel Renee: All Hail The Queen takes us all on a journey with Renee. Renee does not live a normal life at all. Growing up her life was anything but normal. She was subjected to the verbal abuse her mother gave her on a daily basis as well as the horrible acts of molestation which was brought upon her by her step-dad. Renee never knew any love, the love that was suppose to be given to her by her family was taken away and replaced with evil words and actions. The pain she buried within her from her lack of family made her who she was. Renee is a cold hearted queen pin living lavishly in New York City. Since she is such a powerful person many things are protected and kept a secret in order to keep her protected.

    With her moving forward with her past and its dirty secrets buried deep within her and with her being the head person in NY one would think that Renee has it all. She has power, money and with those two things alone she is unstoppable. What Renee doesn’t have is peace of mind. People are resurfacing from Renee's past and they are out for her and she has no clue. Friends are becoming enemies at the drop of a dime, lies are being uncovered, secrets are being told and ultimately Renee could be in danger. Will the most powerful woman in NYC continue to sit on her thrown and watch it all or will her past be her default?

    Overall, I think Brandie Davis did a really good job with her first novel. It was something different to hit the book scenes, not most urban fiction has a woman running things its usually men seen as the big boss, so it was great to see something new. Renee showed the readers that women can run things just as well as men do. It was cool to see how everything came together the secrets connected things and I was like wow, didn’t see that coming. The saying people aren’t always who they seem to be is very true because you just never know. I will be reading part 2 to see what’s going to happen next, from the way things ended seems like its going to be good!

    Renee is an intelligent and business minded drug lord. Her team

    Renee is an intelligent and business minded drug lord. Her team and business affairs are tight knit, but this closeness is something that she never saw as a liability.

    While reading this story I found myself turning pages and even going back over what I read because of the ways that the characters in the book were related. This was a classic case of 6 degrees of seperation, since several of her enemies were connected to the people who were closest to her wihout anyone being aware.

    What was surprising about Renee - All Hail The Queen, was the fact that story was more focused on the emotional parts of the characters. These emotions included the love that she had for her decesaed father, her hatred towards her mother and step father, her close but distant love for man Julian who was 2nd in command of her organization, the love that she had for her sister and the hate that the same sister had for her, the perverted love that her step father had for her, the hostility she had for an illegitimate sibling that she found about and also the love that one of her security had for her.

    All of this love and hatred was the cause of to many deaths of people who were close to her, to enemies from her past and even to the sister that she love so much. I was also reason enough to hand over her throne to the illegitimate sister that she despised.

    There are many areas of the book that will keep a reader entertained and on the edge of their seat and I recommend that they read this book very carefully to make sure that no details are missed.

    My Review **** Four Stars

    “Renee - All Hail The Queen” is an awesome story of power and love. It gives new meaning to keep your enemies close.

    Brandie Davis's debut novel was very impressive! The novel was well written, with an intriguing, unique plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. Everytime I thought I had figured the plot out, Brandie hit me with a twist that left me with my mouth open. I was only disappointed when it ended, and I cannot wait for the sequel!
