Overview

Half Breed Queen by LA Hendricks

Devastating tragedy puts 14-year-old high school freshman Marla Owens, on a fast-paced journey of survival, revival and coming of age. Driven by a force she can't begin to understand and a burning need to find out the truth, she heads toward her mother's home in North Dakota. She soon learns more about herself and her family than she could have ever imagined - her mother was royal heir to the powerful Skatian throne! And now the Skatian people need her to protect their world from those who wish to conquer it. In a classic tale of good versus evil, set on Earth and beyond, a young girl fights to survive to become a young woman-and the reluctant queen of Skatia. Who can she trust? Will she be able to control her own immense abilities and justified anger to do what's right? One thing's for sure: Marla's not in Texas anymore!

I purchased this book because I was provided with an ARC of the second novel in the Skatia series, Amethyst Rising. When I bought this book I new nothing about this series. I started reading without knowing anything. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this story. The development of Marla from a spoiled 14-year-old girl living with both her parents to a 20-something-year-old Queen ruling over a planet called Skatia was done very well. Despite the fact that there is a huge amount of time that occurs in the novel, about 6 years, the story didn’t seem rushed and it didn’t seem slow either. This story held my attention the entire time. I loved the characters that Hendricks created. I loved the way that Marla interacted with everyone, the good and the bad. Towards the end of the novel you can see the way that Marla holds herself when she becomes Queen. She isn’t a girl who is going to let people command her or walk all over her. She has more power than anyone on Skatia has seen in a long time. When she decides she’s going to do something no one can change her mind. I recommend this book to everyone who loves Scifi and fantasy.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Half Breed Queen (The Skatia Narratives Book 1) by LA Hendricks is a compelling read that takes readers on a trip with Marla Owens, who finds out during her stay with her mom in North Dakota that she is actually the heir to the powerful Skatian throne. All of 14 years old and recovering from a tragedy, Marla finds herself suddenly becoming the queen of a place she has never visited or heard of. As she is coming to terms with her new life and trying to adjust to the transition from a fourteen-year-old to a young woman, Marla wonders if she can trust anyone. On top of that, Marla also has a bad temper which makes her behave differently. Will she be able to protect and save her people from those who want to harm them? The story is interesting and has many dimensions to the plot. The characters are strong and well portrayed, and they complement the plot effectively as the story progresses. Marla Owens' portrayal is also unique and different and the author masterfully weaves many shades into the character. There are many twists and turns in the plot that make it an exciting story. The narration is detailed and descriptive with some wonderful imagery that makes the story aesthetically visual. I liked the book because the story is unpredictable. It keeps readers guessing with its many layers to both plot and characters. I am definitely looking forward to reading Book 2.
