Book Review: The Queen by Tiffany Reisz

The Queen 
(The Original Sinners: White Years #4)
by Tiffany Reisz

Blurb: 
Once upon a time, Nora and Søren made a fateful deal—if he gave her everything, she would give him forever. 

The time has finally come to keep their promises. 

Out of money and out of options after her year-long exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, the most feared Dominatrix in the Underground.

While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, her only love and the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice—will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go, or trade in her crown for Søren's collar?

With a shattering final confession, the last link in the chain is forged in The Original Sinners saga. It's the closing chapter in a story of salvation, sacrifice and the multitude of scars we collect in the name of ecstasy—and love.

Viviana's Review: 
It’s over, well, the Original Sinners: White Years series has come to an end.  Though I hope we’ll see glimpses of Soren, Kingsley & Nora later on.

The Queen tells us the story of how Nora becomes the infamous dominatrix as well as concludes the arc of her story with Soren.

Tiffany is truly a gifted writer.  She is able to make the characters come to life on the page and the readers wish they were real and their friends.  The characters each have their own unique and endearing qualities as well as those personality traits that make them the powerful individuals in the story.

The Queen is full of emotions both outwardly and beneath the surface.  Each character struggles to finally not only accept that they know what they want, but that in order to pursue it, they may lose someone they love in the process.  I love that Tiffany used one event where each character related their side of things and everything was revealed.  Brilliantly done.

Overall a great series and conclusion.  We’ll miss the characters and their stories as well as their interactions with each other.



Rating: 4 Stars - LOVED IT
