Long live the queen - Kate Locke

Xandra Vardan thought life would be simpler when she accepted the goblin crown and became their queen, but life has only become more complicated. Everyone -- vampires, werewolves and humans -- wants the goblins on their side, because whoever has the goblins -- wins. 

Queen Victoria wants her head, Alpha wolf Vex wants her heart, and she still doesn't know the identity of the person who wanted her blood. What she does know is that a project from one of the 'secret' aristocrat labs has gotten free and she's the only one who can stop the perfect killing machine -- a sixteen year-old girl. With human zealots intent on ridding the world of anyone with plagued blood and supernatural politics taking Britain to the verge of civil war, Xandra's finding out that being queen isn't all it's cracked up to be, and if she doesn't do something fast, hers will be the shortest reign in history.

My thoughts:
The end...
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I came to the end and was all "There should be more!" Seriously, there should be more, like at least one more. I know some books go on and on, but I felt like, at least one more would have been good. Sigh.
Mooooooooooore!

Xandra does her best to try to find those behind the evil labs. Humans are angrier than ever, and I loved some of the points in this one. Xandra asked when someone they loved had last been hurt, they were all silent. Damn humans, keep it down.

So that happens, drama, politics and danger.

But hey I still want more, I felt like, ok I got an ending, but then, what happened next. I felt like I wanted to stay longer in this world. I will miss this world. Sad.

Conclusion:
Recommended series.

  3. I'd rather that an author ends a series leaving me wanting more than with me feeling like it should have concluded 3 books ago. I need more Steampunk in my life!

  4. But it's better that it ended a bit too soon than carrying on way too long, isn't it??

  22. Whoa, it's been a while since you recommended a book so unreservedly :) It must be good. And it's steampunk too ... so it's going on my list. Too bad you felt kind of cheated by the end. Sometimes it gets like that... Awesome review.
