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.

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.

The Queen finishes off Penny and Damon's story, and it does it with the slow burn and hidden meanings we have come to expect from these two. And it ends with the unexpected and sweet joining of these two imperfect people who are so perfectly suited for each other Penny is safely away at college with Avery. Her dad seems to disappear, and then Avery, and she goes to the only person she know can help her Damon. It has been three years since they saw each other, but it doesn't seem like he has changed, and as much as Penny thinks she has, she is that same girl she was in Damon's presence. The past has caught up with them, and the puzzles they face they need to solve together. The haze hangs over them, their story, the whole time, and it doesn't seem like they can move past anything to get what they both so obviously need Penny finally does what she has to, and Damon forgives himself, and their HEA finally is the forgone conclusion they both must have realized as children, they were meant to be!

This duet reminds me why I am addicted to the dark and heavy. The Queen was amazing! Skye Warren slays it with the duet and I have fallen more for Penny and Damon with each page I had turned. I did not know which way was up or down. I was captured with these two. Their story was sad but hopeful. Damon tried so hard to keep with his rules. He finds himself going against them when it comes down to Penny. Now that Damon has the responsibility of The King in the dark world, he needs his Queen's help. Penny is smart and witty. She knows that in order for Damon to come out stronger, she needs to be by his side. The Queen was hands down a great emotional and dark read. The romance was still in the story and was off the charts hot and heavy. The history that these two characters have makes them who they are present and is the reason they are stronger together.

4.5 stars The Queen is the last book in The Masterpiece Duet and it’s so hard for me to write this review because I can’t believe this amazing series is over. First of all, I have to admit my expectations were crazy high, I’ve been waiting a long time for Damon and Penny’s story and after The King I was literally counting the days to my most anticipated book of 2017: The Queen. The story begins a couple of years after The King’s events and I don’t want to give much away because in an epic story like this one, too much information can clearly damage the reading experience, so forgive me for being a little vague. I think it started slow but it kept building and building. Penny is in college and like the baby genius she always was, she’s a superstar academically. But socially, not so much. She thinks of Damon a lot but she knows that Damon and Tanglewood come hand in hand and the more time she spends away from home, the more she can see a future away from the darkness of her hometown. Or the more she tries to convince herself that there’s a future away from Damon. But then there’s a catalyst. And Penny knows that something is going on in Tanglewood. Something wrong. Something that might involve her father, Avery and Gabriel. And of course Damon Scott. Will Penny be able to solve the most important puzzle in her life? Damon is leading his life like he always does. Always in control, commanding, dark and dangerous and forever lonely. Calculating, assessing, deflecting, ruling, protecting… But now, Penny’s in his doorstep again. Will Damon be able to protect her from the darkness this time? Penny has an amazing sense of loyalty and strength. I already loved her but now everything about her is even sharper and the way she sees through Damon’s facade is mind blowing. Damon is probably one of the most engaging and compelling characters ever! Insanely complex and strong (probably one of the strongest characters I’ve read about, particularly when he reveals his weaknesses), Damon shattered my heart repeatedly and then he would just turn around to glue it back together. Definitely unconventional, broken, damaged and yet absolutely captivating and magnetic. The chemistry and tension between Damon and Penny is intensely palpable, their connection is soul deep, all of their feelings are so raw and powerful that I was emotionally drained when I reached the end. I’ve got to say that the only reason I’m rating it 4.5 stars is because I felt that the story could go on a little longer, I wanted a little more… Maybe because my expectations were sky high or because I read it super fast but it did feel a little short. Maybe it’s just me. Anyway, I really loved The Queen and I’m inconsolable after the end of this alluring, brilliant series. I’m not ready to move on! That’s how much I loved Damon, Penny and their wonderful, broken, perfectly imperfect journey.

'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."

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!

Great book. Sex was too grafic for me. Should have been more passion without such grafic made the sex come across as trash.
