Pale Queen Rising by A. R. Kahler

Product Details
Product Description
"As the royal assassin, Claire is used to moving between the mortal world and the Winter Kingdom. When the queen commands her to kill, Claire does the job and doesn’t ask questions. Her deadly skills and loyalty are soon tested when Claire is sent to the Immortal Circus, one of the many places where “Dream” is harvested from the imaginings of mortals. There she must find the culprit who is causing Dream to mysteriously disappear before the Winter Kingdom’s supply is depleted enough to threaten its very survival. But when she meets Roxie, a beautiful mortal singer with a strange link to the Dream thieves, Claire quickly recognizes an odd and unexplained connection that may cloud her judgment. As each new clue unveils another secret, Claire finds herself confronting the riddle of her own buried past—and a dangerous illusion that, as part of the Immortal Circus, is just another act in the show."



I sit here wondering just how to write a review for this book that won't get me sued!

Have you ever read a book that in less than 24 hour's you've forgotten most of it? That about the only thing you can remember is that the main character is an ass-hat -a supposed kick-ass heroine that is anything but kick-ass?  For the life of me I can't even remember if she actually ever really raised a hand.  I think all she actually did was talk smack, threaten people and be the worse cliched character I have ever read.

The plot wasn't even all that great and it was a tiny bit obvious to this reader (and "tiny" was a wee exaggeration)

You want an actual adult read about the Fae?  Then read Laurell Hamilton's Merry Gentry series -yes you will want to throw the books against the wall for her usage (over-usage---way way overused !)of the word "spill" in all of its forms! But at least you won't be treated like you are brain-dead.

The other thing that I took great issue with, was the fact that this author seemed to have taken a character or the idea of this character from another author. Yes there are a lot of magic wielding, big mouthed, female lead characters lately-but this seemed overly obvious to me.

I HATED Claire.

Oh well, can't love 'em all!
