The last city on Earth is contaminated. Now blood is the only thing that can wash it clean.
Julia is trapped inside the Blue as the Nobles fight over the few humans who are still alive. When the dust settles and she finds herself shackled to a new master, she knows she must escape or die.
Meanwhile, Cam has gathered a handful of comrades and is on his way into the Red to rescue his queen. But not all of his friends can be trusted, and not all of them will make it back alive.
The Silver Queen is the second book in Josie Jaffrey’s Sovereign trilogy, set in a dystopian Europe where vampiric Nobles control the last remnants of the human race.
About the Author
I have always written stories, but it wasn't until I started the first book in the Solis Invicti series in 2014 that I really became obsessed with writing. I love to read, particularly where the escapism of the story is enhanced with an element of fantasy or science fiction. For me, writing is simply an extension of that journey, but I get to decide what happens next (though it's amazing how often the characters seem to decide for themselves what I'm going to write!). As a new author, I love to hear from readers with their comments and feedback on the books, so please do get in touch through the website or via Twitter. Thank you for reading!

Reviewed by Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite The Silver Queen by Josie Jaffrey is the second book in the Sovereign series. The Blue has been contaminated, causing the Nobles to fight over the remaining humans and filling Julia's life with fear, which only grows when Rufus claims her as his Attendant following Lucas' departure. As the Blue becomes more hostile, her new life is under Rufus' control and to break free of her imprisonment she will do whatever it takes to escape. When she learns of a secret about the Red, she makes a plan to embark on her first journey away from the Blue. Jaffrey captures the fear in the Blue through gritty details and the emotional journey Julia faces throughout as she processes the changes. Every moment for Julia is frightening, empowering, and a great journey in conquering fear, finding independence, and fighting back. Cam continues on his quest through the Red to rescue Emmy and has joined forces with a few old allies, but betrayal is soon discovered which could change everything. Josie Jaffrey crafts a brilliant fantasy adventure told from the split perspectives of Julia and Cam. Julia's journey is one of survival and freedom as the Blue becomes more and more violent and deadly. The other part of the story follows Cam's journey, showing the other side to events occurring, and eventually the two sides connect. His search for Emmy continues to drive him but as he comes a step closer to finding her after all this time, he finds his relationship with Felix facing conflict. His goal never wavers but a discovery leaves him torn about what actions to take. Their dynamic is full of chemistry and tension as the two navigate this early part of their relationship. The Silver Queen is another brilliant adventure from Jaffrey who delivers complicated romances to fall in love with, characters with powerful voices, a journey to empowerment, and an ending that will leave you wanting more.
And she's done it again! I seriously love Josie Jaffrey's writing. This series took me by shock in the first book and now that I knew what to expect this time around, I was not disappointed! It's been a long time since I've been into vampire books, and I'm 98.9% sure that I'm still over them beyond this series. Jaffrey gives the human/vampire dynamic a new twist that makes it fun and interesting. For instance, the romances in this book are something out of a very imaginative and creative mind! The different relationships between humans and vampires, vampire and vampires, etc etc is a lot different than the kind I'm used to seeing and I love it. All of the characters continue to be really well written, and we get to see more of some people who were on the sidelines in the last book. The story line is great and paced much differently than I expected it to be, but not in a bad way. Somehow, Jaffrey can drag out the plot lines without making the story itself drag. I love that the book is split into two viewpoints from characters who have absolutely nothing to do with each other (until the last 10% of this book). I am so used to forced romantic relationships between male and female main characters and I'm really pleased that Jaffrey took a different route and even gives us some ship-able (view spoiler) LGBTQ+ relationships. The story is a lot of action packed in with just enough love, lust, and non-cringey romance to make everything flow really well. This series continues to amaze me and I think I'm dubbing it my favorite from 2018. Yeah, you know what, I am. This is my favorite 2018 series. I can't wait to read the next one!
