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 duty--even if it means facing the darkest--and deadliest--side of her nature..." - Book Cover
Her love life is no where near easy either. She's in a relationship with Kiyo but have an hard time making her mind around the fact that he is spending a lot of time with is pregnant ex (who wouldn't) and about to have a baby of his own, while she won't allow herself to have one scared to fulfill the prophecy. Dorian is still around, poking in her life and teasing her like he can so well! Nothing to ease matters!
Did I ever mention how I LOVE Richelle Mead's books? Well this is no exception! Storm Born was great but Thorn Queen is awesome! Eugenie is facing so many questions and moral issues it's a wonder she is still sane. Dealing with her sister, her lovers, her land, demons and humans problems, Eugenie got her plate full. But it's not gonna stop her and that's what I like about the girl; her insecurities are so real to. I was also really fond of Dorian in Storm Born and now I'm in love with the guy! He is just awesome.
If you haven't started this series yet, well run and go buy it! now! Beware that this isn't a young adult series and there are some pretty steamy sex scenes to provide you very neat images *winks*
