Summary: (from goodreads) It was a dream come true. Solie had her own battler, a creature of almost infinite magic who could vaporize legions in the blink of an eye and would willingly suffer a thousand bloody deaths to protect her. She was his love. More simply, she was his queen.

Many others feel the same. The new-built settlement is a haven for all. Erected by sylphs of earth and fire, air and water, the Valley is Solie’s dominion. But, lovers without peer or killers without mercy, the very nature of their battler protectors means peril. It is not in any sylph’s nature to disobey, and while some are hers to command, others are the slaves of Solie’s enemies—the jealous, the cruel. Those who guard her must not fail. Their peasant-born ruler is not yet safe as…


This is the 3rd book of the series, and should not be read as a standalone, reading the previous installments will be a great help following the characters. I haven’t read the others books and there were some sections that I had to really use my imagination to sort of guess where it was coming from. Through the whole book there a lot of ripples arising from the previous stories. Reading the previous books reviews, I get that this one is different since it relates events and activities for the whole hive, not just a for a couple as before.

In this fantasy world sylphs are paired with human masters and they rely on each other for survival and energy sustenance. Their queen Sophie is very fair and good to all the members of her hive and is greatly loved by almost everyone. She expects that the treatment of the sylphs be respectful and lovingly as well as the other way around with the human masters. The loyalty of the sylphs once they become paired is unquestionable and they must obey the master wishes without question, here is where things become interesting when an evil sociopath takes advantage.

Be ready for intense emotions throughout of unconditional love, loyalty, jealousy, deceit and indiscriminate abuse and murder. It was not an easy read, not the books fault buy my own for reading it out of order, it is definitely a thrilling and demanding must read.

We have a chance for a reader to win a ebook copy of Queen of the Sylphs today thanks to Dorchester Publishing. We do recommend that you also read the first books in the series.
