The Queen’s Betrayal is another fantastic novel about the land of Altera, and the residents of this highly beautiful and lethal world. As the second novel in a series, it picks up beautifully from the previous novel, easily tying in all of the previous adventure to bring more order to the story. As with the first novel, the characters are very enchanting, and easily likeable. It is a novel that can easily stand on its own, but fits into the series flawlessly. It is superbly written and weaves a magick spell of vampires and witches and creatures not of this world. This novel, similar to its predecessor, will delight readers around the globe. It definitely delighted me.
