For the last decade, King Lazuli of the Eastern Empire has systematically taken over the world. No one knows much about him other than a series of impossible facts: he cannot die, he has not aged since the conflict began, and he wants to rule the world.
All Serenity Freeman has known is bloodshed. War has taken away her mother, her home, her safety. As the future emissary of the Western United Nations, the last autonomous region of the globe, she is responsible for forging alliances where she can.
Surrender is on the horizon. The king can taste it; Serenity feels it deep within her bones. There is no other option. Now the two must come face to face. For Serenity, that means confronting the man who's taken everything from her. For the king, it means meeting the one woman he can't conquer. But when they meet, something happens. Cruelty finds redemption.
Only in war, everything comes with a price. Especially love.

pooled ink Reviews: 4.5 Stars My head is spinning in the aftermath of this intense series opener. Only the first book and I’m already going a bit crazy. This book is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. It’s action-packed and led by a moral compass set spinning like a wild top, and it leaves me feeling so many conflicted emotions about characters, events, choices, etc. Does this book contain some controversial elements and characters? Yes it most certainly does. But weirdly enough it’s those uneasy knots in morality that elevate this book above its peers. First and foremost this is a book about war and war is a realm where right is wrong and wrong is right and love is hate and hate is love and everything spins and twists and gets tangled and muddied until you’re not sure which way is up only that you know you don’t want to drown. This book, nay this series is likely the type of series that you’ll either be sucked right into or you’ll barely get five chapters in before tossing it aside with a resounding No Thanks. Unrepentant bloodshed, sacrificial freedom, and love between monsters born of war, this is but the beginnings of the dark tale of The Queen of All that Dies. A dystopian story that will have your adrenaline pounding in your veins, your mind spinning between rights and wrongs, and your feet on constantly shifting ground, this book is the first in a trilogy that is sure to take your breath away with its intensity and daring. **Read the full review on Wordpress: Pooled Ink
