I’m quite a feminist in some ways, so, when it comes to reading fiction, I don’t exactly sit too well with stories where the heroines are weak, mindless and submissive. I like strong female characters who hold their own. That is why I hated fairy tales when I was a child. There’s much more to a story for a woman than waiting for a prince to rescue her in a locked tower or just a plain happily ever after at the end of the story.
I enjoyed Scorpion Queen very much because the heroine is one hell of a heroine. This is an adult fiction, yes, but while there’s lotsa steamy scene that can make you sizzle, you may also find strength in the main female character, The Scorpion Queen.
The Scorpion Queen is highly original with dynamics in it, and if you’re the kind of reader like me… one who enjoy refreshing stories with strong heroines in it, I’d recommend you The Scorpion Queen by Alexis Ke. I promise you, you’ll be amazed by this book.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars, and I received this ARC from Red Sage Publishing via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.
