WARNING - THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS.

The War of Two Queens is the fourth book in the From Blood and Ash series and one of my favourite book series. This has been my most anticipated release of 2022.

There will be spoilers ahead, so if you haven't read it yet, scroll on 😂

I really loved this book, and think I experienced every emotion under the sun whilst reading it. The writing has vastly improved from Crown of Gilded Bones and so much happens plot wise.

So many questions were answered, questions I've had since the first book! The additional information surrounding Sera, Nyktos, Malec and Kolis have made me so excited for the sequel of A Shadow in the Ember.

I enjoyed the development of Poppy's power, she acknowledges how much she has changed and what is still yet to change and that both scares and empowers her. Change is a long process, not usually immediate so I enjoyed seeing her with her new abilities.

Whilst the secondary characters (Emil, Netta, Delano) did not show up much, it was worth it when they did. Every moment was savoured. I had my doubts about Emil in the previous installment but this book made me fall in love with him.

"Go get our King, my Queen." *Swoon*

Whilst the secondary characters tool a step back it enabled us to see the relationship between Kieran and Pops develop...and I loved every word of it. There were some moments of pure fluff and it was emotional to see the raw dynamics of them change. Kieran who is usually so calm, has his emotional moments and it was lovely to see his vulnerable side.

Now, I've seen so many negative reviews about the Joining and people leaving negative reviews without finishing the book. I actually enjoyed the connection between the three and thought it was written beautifully, not concentrating on one more than another.

If it wasn't your cup of tea, fair enough but to attack/shame/threaten an author, as I've seen many YOUNG readers and some older do...is appalling. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

This is Jen's story and she obviously had an idea of where the story was going when she started it. I didn't feel as if any part was fanservice, she has put little nods to the group before but small tidbits that do not alter the plot. To shame her over her story is vile.

Finally, the last chapters were an emotional rollercoaster. DELANO...really Jen?! I had a minor heart attack which I still haven't gotten over. I loved the ending, finally Isbitch is dead and we saw Nektas😍🙌 but Kolis has been introduced and I enjoyed seeing the world of flesh and fire meet the blood and ash world!

After the end of TCOGB, this became on of my most anticipated books of 2022. After the cliffhanger of the last book, I couldn't wait to see what happens with Poppy and Cas's story.

The War of Two Queens was an epic continuation of The Blood and Ash Series! The pages are filled with love, friendship, war, death and so much more, this book was impossible to put down. I devoured the book so quickly. The series continued to unfold in a way that was not only intricate but has me so invested and wowed at how Jen can tie everything together in a way that makes my head explode! And each character own my heart in their own special ways. With twists, turns and epic reveals you will be glues to this book from start to finish!

From the start you are consumed with happiness and worry; I was so excited to read Cas's POV and experience his thoughts and feelings but with the end of the last book you know he is not in a good spot. It hurt to see him go through something so horrible again and I wanted to become stabby for him. I was so anxious reading his chapters and was just waiting for Poppy's and Cas's reunion. The things he would do for love, for Poppy and his friends was just everything. You could feel emotions right of the page, bur even going though the worst he would preserve and have hope and determination.

Poppy was dealing with a lot throughout the book; her husband sacrificing himself, the revelations about her family and bloodline, and dealing with her powers but she tried to remained strong and determined, I loved her for it. you could feel her pain at moments, the trials she had to go through and the horrible heart wrenching lessons she learned kept giving me all the emotions. During the book Poppy's heart wasn't whole. For the first time in a while she was separated from Cas and she ached for Cas. For knowing the horror that he must be going through. I'm so glad she has Kieran by her side, and how he helped her through everything. Their relationship really grew in this book and he had her back without any hesitation.

Even through the sadness of some parts, there was also so many moments that made me laugh and smile. I loved the side characters so much, especially Reaver, Delano, Netta. We got a better look into what type of people they are and I loved! I would not be okay with anything happening to any of them. They added the lightness that was needed in the moments of darkness. I loved having Reaver and the Drakens, they added to the story. I loved the different places we went too, and seeing Poppy become the queen that we wanted to see her as. I loved her growth in this book, and how she became even more of a badass. And even though it was sad Cas wasn't there I liked that she was able to do it on her own and find herself on her own.

The plot was filled with more twists and turns that were shocking and just made everything click into place. There was some great badass moments with Poppy and her army. The title of the book really lived up to the story, and the last few chapters caused me to have my heart in my throat with shock, happiness and my mind blown. I was on the edge of my seat with this book. You will meet new characters, learn new information, and have your mind blown again and again. and once you finish I will guarantee you will be sitting there for at least ten minutes trying to process everything and also wish you had the next book immediately. And while this story is within the From Blood and Ash Series, the ties into A Shadow in the Ember and it's story. I defiantly feel like there will be some sort of crossover with the books with how the stories are intwining. It is a must read before you dive into this book, and will help understand plot points again.

Jen continues to wow me with each book in this series and the rest of the series is defiantly going to be epic! A lot of questions were answered, there was great scenes and epic battles and I couldn't be happier! Jen's books always take you on a wild ride and you will not be disappointed with this book!
