An enchanting story of forbidden love

Queen of Someday, A Stolen Empire Novel - Sherry D. Ficklin

I received this book from Netgalley and Clean Teen Publishing to review.



Queen of Someday is an enchanting story that is elegantly written to make your heart ache and swoon. I fell in love with Princess Sophie almost immediately. The book starts off very strong and holds your attention the whole way through. This is a story filled with secrets, betrayal and the feuding between the head and heart


There were many lines of this book that I highlighted on my kindle. The writing is marvelous and really conveys the emotions that Sophie feels without spelling it out for you. I loved all of the references to different poems, I found that aspect of this story rather romantic.


Princess Sophie goes through quite the dramatic change, we watch her grow into a very different woman as the story progresses. I think that the character development was done very well, as living at court can change a woman drastically.


I feel as if many will say that romance was a little rushed and that Sophie fell too hard and too fast. But I believe that is how love happens, especially young love and especially when you find your true love. We can not forget that Sophie is only 15 years old at the start of this story. I would not say that this book contains the dreaded insta-love that we have all grown to hate.


I was initially drawn to this story because of the beautiful cover, but the words contained once you open it are twice as beautiful. I would suggest this book to nearly anyone. It is a compelling, quick read. I am very much looking forward to a sequel.
