The Accidental Queen
Sparrow “Ro” Meadowcroft is about to get the promotion she’s always dreamed of – curator of the museum where she works. She loves old things and the history that surrounds them, so when a patron leaves some items to the museum, Ro is eager to dig in.
The sword in the stone that comes with those items is clearly a joke. A well-made but obvious replica meant to be a conversation starter. Why anyone would think that belonged in the museum is beyond her, but she can’t resist taking a crack at it and finding out if she’s the chosen one.
And as it turns out…she is.
This new book is a really enjoyable read. From mortal hard working woman to another whole world and accidental queen
Another number 1 read/listen
This was another top read from my favorite author. I’m hooked on this world. It’s also helped me escape reality of my brother having a massive heart attack this week. Ro has been an assistant curator in a museum for a while now and is up for promotion of curator. Yet, just before, the museum receives some items that are more like something for collectors of sword and stone stuff, not valuable artifacts. We all know this is just movie props and the old tales. But she is the only one who can remove the sword. Suddenly she is swept away to another realm. Just like that, she discovers her heritage and that her dead aunt who raised her is also there, alive and well. Little did she know that she was part Fae. And now, apparently the new queen since she removed the sword.
We meet so many characters and this book is full of surprises about Ro and her son. There’s just a tad of romance in one scene. Possible prospect for the future? There’s also another kingdom just beyond the horizon. The land of Grimm. They have been enemies for so very long. I sort of liked that queen and for sure her daughter. Not sure how bad the queen is but she will make a good or bad character. I’m just not doing the book justice. Too much to give away if I said more. I want to say it almost ends on a cliffhanger but not really. Just like what might can happen in the next chapter of their life. It’s a great starter to see if you might be interested in the world.
The audiobook is amazing! As always, I love this narrator. He is so talented.
Most enjoyable read!
It was a most enjoyable read. I enjoyed the characters. They are relatable and they kept me entertained. I was eager to know what was going to happen next. Look forward to the next book to see how Ro handles her new life in Summerton.
