THE FINAL BOOK IN THE MASTERPIECE DUET!
I have one chance at a new life. A college education. A future outside of Tanglewood's dark walls. For a breathless moment it seems like I might actually escape.
Then I get a phone call from home.
Damon Scott is my own personal dragon, the fight I've always lost, the secret hope of my heart. And he needs my help right now. Only my mind can solve the puzzle. Only my presence can keep him sane as the city fights against him.
Only my heart can unlock a man with such a tragic past.
This is my final gamble, with everything at stake. One last game to win a future for both of us.
And a love strong enough to break the city apart.
THE QUEEN is the final novel in the bestselling Masterpiece duet, about a game of lies and loyalty, of betrayal and power, and ascension to the city's throne.

'THE QUEEN' by Skye Warren is Book Two in The "Masterpiece Duet" series. This continues the story of Damon and Penny. I strongly feel you have to read the previous book to enjoy this one. We pick up with Penny going to college and Damon still watching her in the background. Damon is keeping Penny's father in his debt and trying to keep him inline. We learn more about how Damon suffered early on to keep Penny safe from his father and him dealing with not doing enough to protect her. Penny and Damon have been playing a dancing game with their feelings but in the book it all comes to a head. Penny knows she needs to help Damon now and she does. Damon and Penny both only really exist for one another. This book was another book that you just cannot put down...I had to know how it ended. I have truly enjoyed this series! Loved it! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
Sweet distracted beautiful Penny spends her days lost in seeking mathematical knowledge. Having left the City and Damon behind to study at university, her only ties to the past are weekly calls from her father and visits with her best friend Avery. When the calls stop coming and Avery goes missing, it is Damon to whom she turns for help. This was the perfect resolution of The End Game series. I loved how Penny metamorphisized from the little girl we first saw to her full self. It was also very special how their relationship changed Damon. I wish the best for them.
I've been waiting for this finale to the Masterpiece duet and it absolutely blew me away. The book is beautifully written and deliciously dark. Penny and Damon dance around what they both know they want while Penny tries to solve a puzzle that could very well save a life. The heat level is off the charts and the twists just keep coming in this compelling tale of love, loss, disappointment, betrayal, and even some hope. With this series, Warren has proven her talent for playing with a reader's emotions as masterfully as her characters play their dangerous game. The Queen contributed to one more sleepless night for this reader because I absolutely couldn't put it down. And, I have to add that the last line of this tale was truly perfect!
