The Remembered Queen by J. Ellen Ross #Review
Posted by brriske
“They’ve started calling me the Remembered Queen. Because no one will ever forget what I did.”
Jon grew up a petty criminal, picking pockets and running dice games in Anhalt, the cosmopolitan capital of Forint. Now, he lives in a tiny backwater, hiding from his past and trying to forget a tragedy so large it nearly destroyed him.
His boring, quiet life is shattered when a strange girl appears – a young woman claiming to be Aviana, Queen of Tolar.
Aviana, who ordered the slaughter of hundreds during the Mad Queen’s Massacre.
Aviana, who fled her throne and vanished two years ago.
The girl is haunted, confused, destitute and half-starved. On her back, someone has carved a tattoo that hides a powerful spell, but she has no memory of who cast it on her. Hunted by men and nightmare creatures, she might be the Remembered Queen. And as he’s drawn to her, Jon knows he’s either taken responsibility for a mad, troubled girl or solved the greatest mystery the Ivory Kingdoms have ever known.
