The True Queen by Sarah Fine - OPTIONAL

The True Queen (Imposter Queen, #3) by Sarah Fine, 374 pages.  Margaret K. McElderry (Simon and Schuster), 2018.  $20. 

Content: Language: PG (1 swear); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  



Ansa has the magical power of the true queen, but she doesn’t have control of the land of Kupari.  Elli has control of the land of Kupari but doesn’t have the magical powers.  Elli is hoping that Ansa will rise up and be the true queen, but the warring factions of each of their people and the disruption of the land is causing trouble with the transition between the two leaders.  Elli and Ansa will have to gain control of the magic they do have, maintain their leadership and try to find a way to unite their divided people.  

This is the final book in the Imposter Queen series and it does have a satisfying conclusion.  I liked the story line and I thought it was a creative idea, but there are some deaths in this book that made me super frustrated.  Also at the end of the second book, Ansa lets a bad guy go for no explained reason and he is the main force to fight against in this book which seemed contrived.
