The Silver Queen by Josie Jaffrey has been one of my most highly anticipated sequels since I read the first book; The Gilded King last summer. You can check out my review for that one here: The Gilded King Review
This book is part of the sequel series to the Solis Invicti series which takes place in post apocalyptic London where the humans are being ruled by the Silver. I adored this series and read them after I loved The Gilded King. All of the books were rated a solid 5 stars, you should definitely check out that series too!
The Silver Queen follows the same beloved characters from the first book; Cameron and Julia. The book begins where the first book left off throwing us immediately back into the action and the politics of the dystopian world. Josie Jaffrey’s writing had me hooked instantly and I was easily and quickly welcomed back into a world that I love so much. Honestly, throughout the entire book Jaffrey’s writing is exceptional. She brings the world to life with excellent detail, emotion and history of the characters but you can’t help but get attached.
One of my favourite aspects of this book was the character growth that Julia goes through. It made me love her even more! I’m not going to say so much more because of spoilers and I really think you should go into these novels not knowing too much. It allows you to be completely surprised with the wonderfully written twists and turns that Josie Jaffrey throws at you throughout.
The Silver Queen continues to display the dual perspective between Cameron and Julia, allowing us readers to see every inch of drama and tension that is unfolding. Jaffrey delivers this excellently, neither perspective is neglected or delivered better. She writes each perspective with so much dedication and honesty to the characters that it only adds to the brilliance of the novel. Throughout, there is a wonderful pace maintained so it doesn’t become confusing to who the characters are and whether we are in the Blue or the Red.
Overall, this another fantastic book by Josie Jaffrey. She is an excellent story teller. This novel is filled with action, drama, suspense, romance and a cliffhanger that will leave you speechless. I really need book three… like yesterday!
Book Three is this spell binding series is The Blood Prince and will be released around February 2019.
Go and get this series!
Thank you so much for reading!
