Meet the Author

Cheri Chesley grew up in Phoenix, Arizona with her mother and four older brothers. She discovered her love of writing at a young age, but didn’t consider it as a career choice until high school. Writing a novel in a year and ten months can do that to a person.
In 2006, Cheri rediscovered her passion for writing and decided to start taking herself and her constantly speaking characters seriously. She enjoys the continued support of her husband and family, including extended family, across the nation. And she could never have gotten this far without a little help from her friends, too.

    I adored The Peasant Queen. And I LOVED The Tyrant King even more!


    Krystal is an incredible character, and totally my favorite kind of Queen. She is full of heart, she knows how to take care of those she loves and lets just say, hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn. So when the tyrant, Donovan comes looking to destroy her family, well. . . lets just say you're going to need to read the book.

    But overall, I believe Voltimande is my FAVORITE character from this book. (No seriously, if for nothing else, you need to read the book just for him!) The poor guy. . . LOL I laugh just thinking about this character. He is pretty much awesome.

    Anyway, I love how Cheri has kept the love alive between the King and Queen, how they will do anything to protect each other and the ones they love.

    The twists and turns keep you guessing at every turn.

    This was a fun read. Krystal was the Peasant Queen (see below) so some of what I say here will be a spoiler for the Peasant Queen. Now that she's married to King Jareth and they have a son and her Sister-in-law's wedding is coming fast, we get to meet the son of King Greggory (the bad guy from the Peasant Queen.) But Krystal didn't know Greggory had a son, so his arrival is a surprise. One they aren't sure what to think of.

    Donovan is a good looking friendly type guy, but you can't help wondering about his motives. He comes to the castle to attend his cousin's wedding, and get a feel for the people and life there. Then he shows his true colors as an angry and jealous man. He wants what would have been his had his father lived to give him the kingdoms he gained by his own betrayals.

    Donovan demands the kingdoms be given to him, and when he's refused he wages war against them. Krystal isn't your common queen. She grew up on a farm and has some ideas that aren't quite in line with a perfect queen, but she isn't going to let anyone stop her from protecting the people and country she loves. Krystal even gets to work some magic, but she doesn't solve her problems with magic, she gets into things by pulling up her sleeves and using a sword. (something I loved since magic can't take care of everything.)

    There is sweetness and romance. Kissing and babies, but you don't have to worry about it being inappropriate. No blushing going on here. The romance is throughout the story. The characters are all well developed and I found myself really rooting for them. Though there is war and fighting, and one scene where there's a bit of blood, it isn't going to give you nightmares either. I'd recommend this book to anyone. But I'd also suggest you read the others first. They are available in print or ebook form.

    Exciting!

    In the spirit of The Peasant Queen, The Tyrant King delivers the same level of fantasy and adventure that we’ve come to expect from Cheri Chesley. Her characters have grown, and so has the plot. With this third book of her trilogy, Ms. Chesley has wrapped up the story nicely—although leaving it, in my opinion, open for another? Young teens will enjoy this tale!
