Overview

Special Agent Omar Zagouri’s latest case is his most dangerous—and his most personal yet. The discovery of secret sixteenth-century letters unveils a plot between the sultan Suleyman and his chief wife, Roxelane, to change the course of the Ottoman Empire. A descendent of Roxelane, Zagouri learns he has an enemy whose revenge has been centuries in the making.

Targeted by an antiquities collector who’s also descended from a chief rival for the ancient throne, Zagouri soon uncovers a modern-day conspiracy that threatens the lives of his family and the security of a nation.

To expose the plot, Zagouri must team up with Naim, the son of his nemesis, who heads an international black-market operation that may have ties to the killings. From ancient Constantinople to the present-day Middle East, Zagouri is on a collision course with history. Time is running out to solve a royal mystery and stop a ruthless killer—one who has Zagouri’s name on his hit list.

3.5 Stars SLAVE QUEEN continues the story of Omar Zagouri, along with his girlfriend, into the Middle East as he finds himself pulled into a conspiracy that is full of danger based on ancient writings. Readers who have enjoyed this series to this point, will definitely enjoy this addition as will those who enjoy their suspense mixed with some romance and Ancient History. The story starts right off with some tension between Omar and Mia and then a call from Omar's father that brings Omar onto the playing field and right in the middle of the conspiracy going on. I've always liked these characters, so I immediately connected to them again at the beginning of the story. I did lose some interest while the other plot lines (three total) were developing. I think I would have been more engaged if there would have just been two plot lines or something... The Ancient History part was interesting as well, although there again, I lost some interest in the switches and wanting more fast-paced pertinent information instead of the slower-paced story. There were also a few places where things were unrealistic (such as having a regular citizen go undercover with no training). About half-way through the story begins picking up as the plot develops more and we find out more about the historical side. Then ending was climatic, as always, and tied everything together. In the end, was it what I wished for? I really enjoyed parts of this and wanted more from other parts. I still really like these characters and getting to delve into some Ancient History, even if mostly fictional. Content: Some violence, innuendo, closed-door love scenes.

This had to be my favorite book in this series so far. I am really looking forward to many more. I love how two stories are woven together so well. I love Omar and Mia but I also loved Leyla and Niam also. Then there was the story of Roxelane, that was so good. Both stories blend so well together. I received an ebook copy from I am a reader for a fair and honest opinion.

This book was honestly a great read. I hadn't read the previous two from the series before hand, and it was a bit confusing at first, but I easily understood the plot and each characters role and involvement, even if I didn't read the two before this one. I loved how there were three different stories all connected in one, and the mystery behind it all was intriguing. The fact that it shows the past of how this all connects together somehow was something I really enjoyed, me being somewhat of a person who enjoys historical fiction and romance. The added mystery was a bonus, since that's something I love as well. Overall a great read, and I will most likely read the books first two books in the series

Not one but two exciting stories, switching between the present and the past. The historical part helped me to understand the apparent madness demonstrated by Islamic sects with respect to their leaders. The present story is an exciting tale of treachery, romance and religious extremism. Definitely worth reading more than once.

A group called the Turkish Royalists is set on restoring the Turkish monarchy; while the royalty descended through sultan Suleyman's third wife, Roxelane, there are those who believe Roxelane plotted against the true heirs to the throne (descendants of the first wife) and now wish to restore the proper line to power. Baris Uzuner is one of the Royalists who is set on reclaiming what he thinks he was due--and if that means killing off descendants of Roxelane, including Omar Zagouri--that's what he intends to do. However, he's not counting on Leyla, the assistant he hired for research purposes, to figure out his plans--or to have powerful connections in Naim Beta; Naim's father's black market business has previously put Naim and Omar against each other, but when Naim realizes Omar's life is at risk, he goes against his loyalty to his father to warn him. I really like how there are three different perspectives (Omar's, Roxelane's, and Leyla's) that weave together the story. It's so interesting to see how the historical sections support the contemporary parts; although the contemporary characters aren't aware of all of the backstory, the historical plot line shows the motivations and intentions of the characters and how that could shape things that the contemporary characters deal with, and I just thought that as so interesting. I was also really drawn in by Naim, deciding where his loyalties lie and what he finds morally right and wrong; I would love to see him and Leyla in another book and find out more about what happens to them. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
