Sixteen-year-old Elli was a small child when the Elders of Kupari chose her to succeed the Valtia, the queen who wields infinitely powerful ice and fire magic. Since then, Elli has lived in the temple, surrounded by luxury and tutored by magical priests, as she prepares for the day when the Valtia perishes and the magic finds a new home in her. Elli is destined to be the most powerful Valtia to ever rule.
But when the queen dies defending the kingdom from invading warriors, the magic doesn’t enter Elli. It’s nowhere to be found.
Disgraced, Elli flees to the outlands, the home of banished criminals—some who would love to see the temple burn with all its priests inside. As she finds her footing in this new world, Elli uncovers devastating new information about the Kupari magic, those who wield it, and the prophecy that foretold her destiny. Torn between the love she has for her people and her growing loyalty to the banished, Elli struggles to understand the true role she was meant to play. But as war looms, she must align with the right side—before the kingdom and its magic are completely destroyed.
Sarah Fine is my go to author when I want something completely original, entertaining, well written, and imaginative.
She has yet to let me down and Impostor Queen was not an exception to her talent nor her ability.
Beautifully written, masterfully detailed and laid out, this was hard to put down and even harder to walk away from.
Sarah has a away of describing details and her worlds that not only captive but are also so seamless that you hardly know they are happening and before you know it, not only can you picture the world she created but you feel as if you are in the very heart of it, right there with the characters that are every bit as believable as the world in which they live.
This was such a fun and exciting read and I'm truly craving more and can't wait to see what will happen next. I predict this will be another outstanding, standout series from Sarah that will be sure to enthrall us all.
