The Passionate Queen

The Passionate Queen

Series: The Dark Queens #2

Goodreads Synopsis:
The Passionate Queen

Once upon a time a dragon dared to fall in love with the Queen of Hearts…

Zelena Hermosa wants only one thing, to be free. But for a morphling like her freedom will never be possible. Bought by a witch as a baby, she’s been raised in a household that knows no kindness or love. She’s a broken, dirty child the day she meets her prickly little dragon boy.

Ragoth Nur, heir to the throne of Drakon has just stolen a golden apple from Zeus’s favored orchard. In order to make sure he doesn’t have to face the wrath of the gods (but especially his mom) he runs off to wonderland to enjoy his treat and there bumps into the human girl who will change the course of his life forever.

There’s so much more to the Queen of Heart’s than the stories. So much more than the vindictive woman who shouts, “Off with her heads.” This is the true story of the woman, the legend, and the myth…

My Thoughts:
The Passionate Queen is the Second book in the Dark Queens series by Jovee Winters. I enjoyed seeing a different side of the Queen of Hearts. I love the characters in here they stay relatively true to the classic characters with a few twists. Zelena is just a girl when she meets this beast boy she's never seen. Ragoth visits a new realm and is enthralled by this dirty little girl dressed in rags.These kids develop a friendship that seems to be their only refuge from their lives. Will their friendship blossom into something more or will the best have to let go of his queen?

This story was a great take on one of the villains of classic fairy tales. I loved the romance and comedy in this novel. I like being able to recognize the characters from the classic and see them in different ways. I loved how you got to see the queen of hearts became hard and cold as well as seeing her softer side.
