Reader Review: Thorn Queen is an excellent read! A real page-turner as the plot and subplots are great, the conflicts and the romance are exciting and the characters are believable. I love Richelle's writing style and the way the story flows seamlessly from the humanworld to the otherworld, and that I didn't necessarily have to read first book, Storm born, to enjoy this one. The ending is excellent, too.
Eugenie Markham is a shaman for hire, paid to bind and banish creatures from the Otherworld. But after her last battle, she's also become queen of the Thorn Land. It's hardly an envious life, not with her kingdom in tatters, her love life in chaos, and Eugenie eager to avoid the prophecy about her firstborn destroying mankind. And now young girls are disappearing from the Otherworld, and no oneâ¿¿except Eugenieâ¿¿seems willing to find out why.
Eugenie has spilled plenty of fey blood in her time, but this enemy is shrewd, subtle, and nursing a very personal grudge. And the men in her life aren't making things any easier. Her boyfriend Kiyo is preoccupied with his pregnant ex, and sexy fey king Dorian always poses a dangerous distraction. With or without their help, Eugenie must venture deep into the Otherworld and trust in an unpredictable power she can barely control. Reluctant queen or not, Eugenie has sworn to do her dutyâ¿¿even if it means facing the darkestâ¿¿and deadliestâ¿¿side of her nature. . .

Chapter OneSad fact: lots of kids know how to use knives and guns.
I'd been one of them, but instead of pursuing a life of crime, I'd trained to be a shamanic mercenary. This meant that while my friends were at dances and football games, I'd been out banishing spirits and wrestling down monsters with my stepfather. On the upside, I grew up never fearing muggers or any other assailants. On the downside, an adolescence like that really screws with your social development.
It meant I'd never really been like other kids. I'd had some friends, but compared to their world, mine had been terribly stark and terribly deadly. Their dramas and concerns had seemed so petty next to mine, and I could never fully relate. As an adult now, I still couldn't really connect to kids because I had no shared experiences to draw on.
Which made my job today that much more difficult.
"Go ahead, Polly," crooned the girl's mother, smiling with overplump lips. Too much collagen, I suspected. "Tell her about the ghost."
Polly Hall was thirteen but wore enough makeup to rival a forty-year-old whore. She sat slouched against the back of a couch in her family's perfectly decorated house, chewing gum loudly, looking everywhere but at us. The more I studied her, the more I decided she probably did have problems. I suspected they had less to do with supernatural influences and more with having a mother who had named her Polly and let her wear thongs. It was an unfortunate side effect of Polly's low-cut jeans that I could see the aforementioned thong.
After a minute of silence, Mrs. Hall sighed loudly. "Polly, dear, we've be...

I really enjoyed this book! It has great character dynamics, plot, and worlds. If you have enjoyed Richelle Mead's other books then this one will not disappoint! And I personally liked this book better then the first book in the series "Storm Born"
