4 Stars for The Queen by Skye Warren
Review by Bel
With Skye Warren’s poetic storytelling, a cast of irresistible characters, The Queen concludes The Masterpiece duet in a spectacular way. Dark. Sexy. Suspenseful. All qualities we all know and love about Skye Warren’s books. Qualities that possessed every page of The Queen as we witnessed Damon and Penny thrown back into each other’s world with the force of their pasts driving them closer together, closer than ever. But then again, were they ever not in each other’s worlds? Years might have passed, state lines put between them. But Miss Warren reminds us, love doesn’t recognise distance, nor does a love like Damon and Penny’s fade over time. Their closeness causes everything to intensify. The hate. The love. The desire. The need to protect. But will the chaos surrounding their lives, their undeniable connection, bring together permanently, or drive them apart, forever? I’d love to say here how I utterly adored every single world of The Queen, but I can’t. I love Skye Warren’s writing, her stories and I have fallen in love with Damon and Penny. But after devouring the story in one sitting I didn’t find myself smiling with satisfaction at the end of it. Don’t get me wrong, I loved how The Queen brought everything full circle. This was an incredible story, without a doubt. The writing, the world building, the characters. All amazing. Was I sad the duet was finished? Yes. I could read about Penny and Damon every day and I wouldn’t grow sick of them. But that wasn’t it. The romance aspect of The Queen didn’t quite hit the mark for me but I also can’t sit here and tell you how I would change it. It all played out exactly how I expected for Damon and Penny. I just selfishly wanted infinite pages of these two lovers and the chaos that follows them. If you haven’t read from Skye Warren and love dark, sexy, suspenseful romance then start now with Damon and Penny. This duet is definitely one of my all time favourite criminal underworld romances
“I’m looking for my dad. He works for you.”
That earns me a small smile, his lids low. “He does more than work for me. Does he tell you about his day when he calls me? About threatening people for money? About following through?”
Acid burns my throat, because Daddy never mentions that. And I’m not naïve enough to think it hasn’t happened. When I’m in at one of the best colleges in the country, while I live in that dreamworld of numbers and Greek symbols, he’s doing dirty work for a dangerous criminal king.
“So where is he now?”
An indolent shrug of one shoulder. “I haven’t seen him. Though I did hear through the grapevine that he started gambling again.” He makes a tsk sound. “That’s never a good thing. Once debts start to pile up, how can I trust him to be loyal? I can’t.”
My blood runs cold. “Did you do something to him?”
“Let’s be clear, sweetheart. Whatever happened to him, he did it to himself.” The cold silver of his eyes tells me Damon’s conscious would not ache for even one second over my father’s death.
“You asshole,” I hiss, unable to hide my anger any longer.
A man steps forward, someone I’ve never seen before. He’s wearing a suit that’s been undone in most of the ways it can be, rumpled and pushed aside. I barely have time to register his aggression, his instinctive response to my insult. How does a man obtain that kind of blind loyalty?
The man reaches for me, his fingers brushing my wrist.
That’s how close he gets before everything shatters. Damon moves so fast he’s a blur. When he stills, he has the man pressed against the wall, arm twisted at a strange angle.
“No one touches her.” Damon’s voice is quiet but it carries through the crowded hall.
A rustle moves through the crowd, half awareness, half movement. The way they look at me has changes, the hostility faded away, replaced by something else. Maybe deference. Or fear.
I’m under Damon Scott’s protection now.
