2018 book 93

Sarah Beth Durst's The Queen of Sorrow
Durst's books are sometimes hit or miss for me, and the final book in her Queens of Renthia series was more on the miss side. I won't say too much about the plot so as not to spoil the first two, but in this one, a queen's children are kidnapped, spirits are running amok, political plots abound, and it's all fairly overwrought. I am definitely more interested in the spirits than in any of the queens or their past or current paramours at this point, so a lot of this dragged for me. I did like that an elderly women ambassador was one of the POV characters this go-round, and that there was a hint of a cute teen girl romance. Very anti-climactic and disappointing ending though.
