    One thought on “Queen of Swords”

    1. Woohoo! If you are looking for a great sci-fi book then look no further this one has it all. Aliens, adventure, space, and one kick ass heroine!! Katee Robert has definitely grabbed my attention with her Sanctify series.Ophelia is a Diviner. A special type of species that serves the Lady, a God that gives them the power of seeing the past, present, and future through card reading. Ophelia, who helps run her fathers gunrunner business, returns home after a devastating loss to her crew after not l [...]

    2. I don't know why the hell I added this book to my TBR shelf. I like romance and I like science fiction. But in my experience, when you add the two genres, weird shit happens. Like in Hunting Julian, Forced Mate et cetera. Your hero whips out the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Penis" *cough*Nicholas*cough* and he maybe even gets pregnant. O__o Or the heroine, Princess Vagin'Nee Blahblah saves THE GALAXY by doing The Sex with the entire male population of well-hung Rat shifters. Or some shit like that. [...]

    3. I admit, I had started this one a long time ago and put it down only a chapter in, because I didn't care for the fact that the book started off with the heroine climbing out of the hero's bed after a drunken one-night stand.I should never have put it down.There was tons of intrigue, betrayal, angst, danger and excitement plus a good dose romance and sexual chemistry.A very solid 4/5 Stars, with a full review to follow.

    4. I'll admit, the only reason I picked this book up was because of its title & cool cover, and for once, I didn't regret it. Normally I'm put off by sci-fi books (which is weird, because I love good sci-fi movies), but Queen of Swords is different. Yes, there are spaceships, lasers & multiple alien races running around, but rather than beat me over the head with technical jargon & long-winded explanations (you know, in case I failed to realize just how different & advanced everythi [...]

Katee Robert did just that, she has an excellent imagination, it made this book very unique and like no other I've read before. T [...]

    6. Rating: 3 out of 5.It started out great, but I found the heroine a bit too prickly for my liking. I also wished the ending was longer and more complete in its conclusion.

    7. The story starts out with Ophelia waking up in a strangers bed. She gets a call from her mother saying she needs to come home immediately. She sneaks out of the guys house and when she gets home she realizes she is in for a surprise. She finds out that she is being picked up and is going to marry Prince Kristian. However, the guy who picks her up to take her to the prince is non other than the guy who's bed she warmed last night. What she doesn't know is that Boone is actually Kristian's little [...]

    8. If you enjoy love-hate tug o' wars in your romanceIf you read the blurb for QUEEN OF SWORDS you've got a good grasp of the plot and the hero and heroine of this fresh scifi romance from Katee Robert. She wastes no time in the set up before rocketing readers into an adventure that has plenty of snicker-worthy moments and action of both the gun-toting and steamy varieties.I would be remiss if I didn't admit now that I didn't realize this was the second in the Sanctify series when I grabbed it. Tha [...]

    9. Author: Katee RobertPublished By: Entangled PublishingAge Recommend: Adult(Language)Reviewed By: Arlena DeanRaven Rating: 5Blog Review For: GMTAReview:"Queen of Swords" by Katee Robert was a wonderful fantasy read. The two main characters (Ophelia and Boone) were really great. This read was one of those page turners finding it hard to put down until finished. The cards are really played in this story so get ready for a good read. The story starts with Ophelia Leoni (Diviner) was to get married t [...]

    10. First Line - 'Ophelia couldn’t find her underwear. They had to have been around there somewhere. She’d been wearing them last night, after all, but she was hard pressed to find that small piece of silk amongst the other clothing scattered about the room.'I like this opening, Ophelia seems like a fun person - though she isn't quite as promiscuous as she sounded to me initially. Though the guy she is in the process of sneaking away from is the very man who will change her life forever. Who kne [...]

    11. I don't often read this kind of sci-fi romance but I love Katee Robert's contemporary romance series so I jumped at the chance of reading Queen of Swords when I was offered a review copy. I'm happy to say I was impressed, the author has created an interesting universe with diverse species of alien characters and she gives us enough information to build a good picture of things without overwhelming us with unnecessary details. None of the terms used are too complicated so the story is very easy t [...]

    12. So Sanctify 0.5 (prequel novella) was The High Priestess and I really enjoyed it so I was looking forward to reading this.We start off with Ophelia having trouble finding her knickers (best opening EVER), can't run from a one night stand with no pants now, can we? Then her mum (Marianna) tell her she has had a marriage proposal from some prince and, after reading her cards, she accepts. Turn out Boone is the guy that comes to collect her, only she soon finds out that he wasn't really there to co [...]

    13. Full review at wickedlilpixie/2012/06/17/It's really weird writing a review for a novel I beta-read a while ago. For starters, I need to be totally up front--Katee Robert is my critique partner and has been since I first had a critique partner. She wouldn't have lasted that long if I didn't love her work. So, what you're about to read is a gushing review, but it's a gushing review because I truly think her stuff is fantastic.Okay, now that that is out of the wayQueen of Swords reinvigorated my l [...]

    14. I started this one on the train on my way home from BEA and it held my attention. I found myself cheering for Ophelia and really enjoying all of the space elements (the world building is really well done if it does sometimes seem to give homage to Star Wars-especially with this Han and Leia type romance). This is the second book in the series, and I did not read the first, but I felt it stood alone. The species of aliens are very original and creative. The Diviner religion is also very creative. [...]

    15. It was a page turner from the beginning, but some points the pacing was dragging the story and it was hard to follow. I believe I might have enjoyed it more if it were a novella. The spiritual side to it was very interesting to see, and I would have never expected to see tarot cards as part of a sci-fi series! The main characters are a kick ass heroine and a sexy prince who are extremely hot together! ()If you have watched the TV series Firefly, they both share a similar atmosphere. The elements [...]

    16. Great scifi romance! I'll be posting the review on GraveTells soon and then here shortly after. In the meantime, I'll just say that it has action, humor, chemistry, steamy sex, and likeable characters with believable world-building. Looking forward to the next Sanctify novel! Will it be about Jenny? That would be awesome!

    17. This book is full of snarky, sexy fun! If you loved the banter between Han Solo and Princess Leia, you'll love Ophelia and Boone.

    18. I’m a big “I’m in the mood for a good – blank – book”. So far this year it’s mostly been contemporary but there’s been a couple of Westerns thrown in the mix as well as a few Sci/Fi romances. This is a Sci/Fi romance by a mostly contemporary book writer and I liked it quite a bit. I have a number of books loaded by Katee Roberts but oddly, this is the first one I’ve read – odd that.Ophelia Leoni is – well to put it more easily – a futuristic fortune teller. She tells fort [...]

    19. 5*sLoved it!Review posted hereokpassionforlifeYou know what? I loved this book… it was sci fi, it was fantasy & it was refreshingly different.We meet Ophelia Leoni as she is getting smashed, grieving for the loss of her crew and ship, all she wants is oblivion and what better way to achieve it that through alcohol and anonymous no strings sex with a one night stand…… what she doesn’t bank on is the one night stand she has just left, turning up at her home on the same day to cart her [...]

    20. I'm not a reader of sci-fi romances, this is new territory for me but I've read Katee Robert's Brazen offerings so when I was offered the chance to read Queen of Swords for review, I grabbed the chance.If you've read the synopsis you will have a good idea at where the book is going. Boone is sexy, witty and protective, Ophelia independent and feisty and whilst they can fight & spar against each other, they can't deny their attraction or chemistry and this leads to some explosive passion. But [...]

    21. I read the prequel novella before this book. And that made me sad, because I got to know Marianna and Gerard in that book. Gerard changed his mind about diviner abilities, despite the fact that in The High Priestess his belief in those abilities is one of the big reasons he escapes with Marianna. Also (view spoiler)[Marianna dies!! (hide spoiler)] That is not what someone who read the prequel would expect or want.Aside from that though, Ophelia and Boone were adorable together in a scarily viole [...]

    22. This book was a great sci-fi read and it came to me at the perfect time. I am not sure if it is because I read to much or what but I have been getting tired of the same old stories over and over just with different characters. Katee took this story beyond that with her unique plot and intriguing characters and pulled me out of my reading slump. If you are looking for something different that grabs you and holds your interest until the very end then I HIGHLY recommend this book. I am really excit [...]

    23. Uggggghhhh. Deluded. contrived. boring as all hell. Skip it. Reading this, I had one question*snorts* No. It doesn't. Hard pressed to call it romance. I really wouldn't classify it as a sci-fi either. :/ It just a whole lot of .k used. I wanted to like it so much!! I stuck in there until.about 30 pages from the end. Then I skimmed. I just didn't care about the plot, or the characters.or any of it aw well.

    24. 4.5/5 starsReally, really enjoyed this one! I loved that there was a reason (beyond being in love) that made the heroine shift from being completely kick-ass and hard to being a little less so. I'm not going to say what it is, I'm not a spoiler gal, but it worked and wasn't gimmicky. I also loved the sheer multitude of awesome and unique species. They were painted with vivid strokes and fearless creativity - blending into the universe and making it a far more interesting place to visit. And I kn [...]

    25. Yet another book I read last summer but didn't have time to write a review for and now I can't remember much about it Given the storyline (which I vaguely remember now that I've read the synopsis again) I'm quite surprised I gave the book a three-star rating but it must mean I found the story entertaining! Then again, I have almost no recollection of the book which isn't such a good sign Who knows?!

    26. So I had pretty much forgotten all that happened in this book, the baby I guessed pretty soon after she threw up the first time, and yeah, can't wait to read more!*First read March 20th 2012*Really great book! The characters were really great, the plot was awesome, and yeah, I just want to read more!!!

    27. I won this from the first reads giveaway. This had a good storyline but i had a hard time really getting into it. It just kinda stayed level throughout the book without any shocks or surprises that would leave me at the edge of my seat craving more. It was just okay

    28. This is a new to me author, and I quite enjoyed the story a lot! At first, it took me a bit to get into since it’s a fantasy/sci-fi/romance and the beginning of a series, but after a chapter (maybe 2) I got the hang of it and became invested. Yes, it’s a bit predictable, but it was still good to me. I liked the characters and the story.

    29. This was quite a space opera/adventure. It had a little bit of everything in it: space travel, paranormal, suspense, harlequin-esque secret baby, intrigue, contemporary drunk partying, daddy-issues, etc. I would be hard pressed to categorize this into only one genre.Ophelia was quite an intense character. She was constantly faced with tough decisions. She did pretty well with them, at least as well as you'd expect when you're puking through most of the book. She was well tuned in to what was nee [...]
