Title: The Queen
Genre: Dystopian Romance
Author: Kiera Cass
Publication: December 2nd 2014
Cover Rating: 3/5
This was an amazing backstory on not only Queen Amberly but King Clarkson when he was prince and his parents. I was definitely shown where the cruelness King Clarkson has came from. We also get to learn more about the castes and how some of the occupational hazards towards reproduction and other health issues.
With seeing this glimpse into the past it made me really want to know more about the first ruler and how everything came to be the way it was. We get some insight into journals from a past ruler but besides that there isn't much else and I would love to read more about it.
On thing that did really bother me(not with the author or writing) was that King Clarkson was treated so horribly by his own father. He hated his father. But he turned into his father once he became king. I would have thought after all the years of dealing with his own father would make him a better person. It didn't. He did pretty much the same stuff, if not worse, to Maxon. I was seriously hoping King Clarkson would eventually see the error of his ways. But maybe the pressure of being king was just too much for him to handle so he became his father.
Overall, I gave the book 4/5 stars.
