The Iron Queen is the third and hopefully-not-final-but-it-might-be-final book in the Daughters of Zeus series by Kaitlin Bevis. I have very much enjoyed reading/listening to ALL these wonderful books and I have to say, this one might be the best of all three. It's different from the other two books as this one now has dual perspectives, and I really LOVE dual perspectives (especially when they're done well, like this) because the author is letting you step into the minds of her other awesome characters.
I can't tell you much because I don't want to give anything away and spoil this novel, or its predecessors, with my fangirling. What I will say, is I am still totally, completely, 100% in love with Hades. He is the best take on the god you could possibly dream of. And I really love all the side characters; good or bad, they are all done REALLY well.
Oh and this is THE first series I have ever read where I thought Zeus was a big ole bag a sh*t... Pardon my french but there's no other way to put it. Bevis did very well in putting him in an evil light and I am very impressed with this installment! I really do hope Bevis will continue to play in this world, but if not, I will happily re-read and re-listen to these amazing novels over and over again. They're FANTASTIC, and the way Bevis actually tells you the story in audio format is magic. HIGHLY recommend this to any lovers of books!
Her young adult series "Daughters of Zeus" is available wherever ebooks are sold. She also writes for truuconfessions.com and Athens Parent Magazine.
