    *spoilers below* Did I read the right book?This was awfulllllllll. Oh my god how on earth did this get 4.5 stars?The writing is terrible and badly paced, everything was WAYYYY too fast. She becomes queen in like 4 chapters. That's no fair. Becoming queen should've taken an entire book. And you know why it was so fasted paced? Because Arianna is a fucking Mary Sue.I don't usually throw MS around. In fact I never do but holy shit could the authors make her any more over powered? The Queen Summit was a joke because obviously Arianna is the most special, most powerful Queen Heir evererer. First she lives in a palace with all the luxuries of life ruling over the Bronx. Mind we never hear about how she rules as alpha because, nope she's a super heir and automatically gets appointed a pack with happy adorable sidekicks and has been ruling since she was 16 of course. You know how many 16 year olds get appointed into leadership positions? Fucking 0. Because they arn't people yet, they're raging balls of hormones that are more interested in boys and shopping and fashion and their bleeding hearts. Everyone is described as supermodels of course but none of the side characters ever get developed, they're all just Ari's minions. Off she tromps to become queen because the old one kicked the bucket. The trials she goes through are laughably easy for her, she's the best in all the boroughs at mecca chest don't you know. And of course in the second test where she has to touch a mystical marvellous crystal, her rival passes, but Arianna? She lights up like a fucking Christmas tree letting us know that she is the Chosen One. Gifted at formulating war strategies even though she lets everyone else do the planning.OH what's this a handsome SEVEN FOOT TALL bear-man promptly shows ups and saves her, all the while, kissing her twice (once against her will? Who the fuck kisses strangers willy-nilly? Oh wait they kissed 5 years ago on a summer holiday when they were 15).OH AM I NOT MAKING SENSE? Because the story is literally written as choppily as my review. Jumping from one fucking plot point to the next. Wolf-Queen-Heir - Extinct faeries - Murder mystery - Fuzzy-man-bear-love-interest. I'VE GOT WHIPLASH, WHERES MY NECKBRACE?Just.... It's exhausting. Every chapter Arianna suddenly gains a new gift or talent that makes her better than everyone else. It's not realistic, in fact this book is purely hedonistic indulgence for the authors whom, I'm sure, sucked each other off as they wrote this thing.I'm still reading it tho because everyone needs a little hedonism to jack off to.

    Leia Stone and Jaymin Eve did it again! Arianna was a awesome character to follow, and the suspense in finding out whole the love interested will be exciting! I really like the concept of this world, and the story was greatly written. I'm excited to see where this is going... Stone and Eve really do have a great working relationship going on, and I hope they never stop. Now I need next book. Like now.

    Queen Heir by Jaymin Eve and Leia StoneThe Story:When the Queen of the Shifters dies, a summit is called to choose a new leader from the five queen heirs. Arianna must compete against four other contenders while also attempting to solve the mystery surrounding the queen’s murder…Whatever killed the first queen will be back for more. Unfortunately, that is not the only threat her people face. One wrong move could see the shaking foundations of the shifter queendom collapse and taken over by the bears. Turns out Arianna might need help, from a very unlikely source, and a person whom – it turns out – she shares an old, unforgotten history.The Characters:Arianna is intelligent, caring and can kick ass with the best of them. Her sense of duty is constantly tested by unsanctioned desires (and her love of poker). I loved that her sense of duty always won and that she challenged out-dated traditions. Arianna is a character you will remember, and is quite possibly my top character of 2016!Him: …*fans face* Enough said.The World:Holy vampire sparkles, my favourite part. Though I always love the worlds created by Jaymin Even and Leia Stone (both together and separately), in this novel they have really taken pains to add depth and complexity. They even made up a game! ...That I would really like to play. It sounds like Settlers of Catan – paranormal styles. The customs within each sect are well thought out; The etiquette, the map, the powers and transformations – all so well crafted.The Readability:Could not put it down. These two know the ropes. Professionally edited. Suitable for 15 years and over.Final Verdict:Fans of this duo who thought nothing could beat Hive are going to be in bookworm heaven with this read. And if you are new to Jaymin Eve and Leia Stone, this is a great book to start with. Eagerly awaiting the sequel.Favorite Quote: “Are those mac and cheese balls wrapped in bacon?”Calista smiled. “Yes, the queen’s chef is quite exquisite. Promised that we could anything the heirs’ hearts desired. I told him you ate like a five-year-old and so he came up with this.”

    3.5 STARSIt starts out with a plot heavy and a fast paced story that is holding us as readers. BUT...Right off as readers you can tell not enough sensory details is given for us to grasp this world. I understand that many writers put in insane amount of unnecessary detail and add the whole thesaurus while doing it. Still, this book almost led us blindly to imagine their world.You could also see some grammatical errors and writing did not feel connected throughout the book. At certain point in the story we would suddenly become disjointed from the plot or the characters. It felt as if not much deep thought had been put into creating it. Everything was just a co-incidence which worked till a certain point..Lastly, we have a typical h who is all about slut-shaming..I would have let it go if it did not happen again and again but really what is up her ass? So what that some girl is doing a "walk of shame" in NYC?You notice that but not other things in the big vibrant city? SO what if other women choose to practice promiscuity?Clearly you do not prefer that method doesn't mean others can't..I tend to refrain for bashing the character for their sex practices but when characters continue to bash others and portray "I-am-better-than-thou" attitude it just grates me the wrong way..Just saying it like it is..

    Ari is one of four heirs who could potentially take over should something happen to the Red Queen of the wolf shifters. Wolf shifters can live for hundreds of years, as the queen, she is the most powerful shifter, the one who controls the mecca protecting all her people. When suddenly the queen is found murdered it’s time for the heirs to battle it out in the summit proving they have what it takes to be queen. However, aside from proving she has what it takes to become Queen Ari needs to find out who killed the Red Queen as well as who attacked the heirs. It’s while the summit is going on that they learn the bear shifters also sustained similar attacks, but the bears have an idea who attacked them. After a series of tasks, Ari comes out the winner becoming the next queen who will control the mecca and save her people. At her coronation the bear King proves that instead of being an enemy, he will a powerful ally, doesn’t hurt that Ari finds him as attractive as he does her. Together with the help of her new ally the two powerful shifters set out working together to figure out what is looming in the shadows. Will working with the bear King unite the two once-warring shifters? Will Ari and Kade be able to deny the connection they feel for each other? What is really looming in the swirling water? I adore Ari she’s a strong leader willing to lead instead of being in the back of the battle so when the time comes for her to fight she does just that and protects those she loves. I like Kade a lot for her a potential relationship goes against everything she’s been taught but maybe now as Queen, she can make some changes. Ari has a close-knit group of friends from her advisor, her magic bound, as well as her familiar and loyal guards. I’ve got high hopes for Ari and Kade as the series progress’s I’m rooting for them. I’ve had my eye on this one since I first caught a glimpse of the cover I knew I had to read it. I’m a huge fan of shifter novels so I knew Queen’s Heir was a must that I had to read right away and it doesn’t disappoint if anything it exceeds my expectations. While the concept is very urban fantasy with shifters that’s where the similarities end a unique take on my favorite concept. The authors did a beautiful job weaving a captivating story from start to finish that I could really sink my teeth into. The characters are perfectly balanced easy to connect with and you can’t help cheering them on as I did. A perfect blend of world, action, story and just a smidge of romance to leave you wanting more. My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next one as this one was impossible to put down. I’ve only read a few books by one of the authors before but I can’t wait to check out their other books as I loved this one so much. A beautiful cover to match a beautiful story that I highly recommend for fans of shifters and fantasy.

    Yeah, I’m not going to finish this… Our MC is a really special snowflake that is just absolutely perfect at everything, no matter what it is. She is so much better than everyone else and that is why she feels justified slut shaming all the other women… She has alabaster skin and platinum blonde hair but you know her daddy might have been Polynesian so that is why she has dark eyebrows. I’m really glad we have racial diversity to give us token dark brows and lashes…. Oh is my sarcasm dripping?The writing was really disjointed and rushed on top of the cliché fest the story is. I have noticed that the only Jaymin Eve books I really don’t like are the ones she has co-written with Leia Stone, so I do wonder how much of this is really Jaymin’s writing and if it is mostly Leia Stone, because it’s a hot mess. This book is NA, not YA, the characters are in their 20’s and the content is in that age range.

    I didn't actively hate this, but it was one of the most boring, mindless reads I've ever picked up. I'm 99% convinced that the only reason I finished was due to the extreme lengths I'm willing to go in order to avoid writing my thesis. Girl is vying to be queen of the wolves in New York. She's been prepping for it her whole life as one of the heirs to the throne. Someone murdered the old wolf queen and now there's a summit (series of challenges) in order to test the heirs' abilities before one of them is crowned. The initial suspicion is that the bear shifters were the murderers, so the challenges are laced with whodunnit and inane dialogue that exists for no reason at all. By the way, the heir (I can't even remember her name) kissed a scrawny bear shifter one summer when she was 15. Oh look! That boy is the bear king now. Aren't you shocked? Isn't it titillating? Will they let old prejudices overrule a possible alliance, or will their passions lock their lips instead of their swords? Tune in to book two in order to confirm what you've guessed since page one. The only saving grace of this is that I can see some positive messages about female authority and strength. This feels like YA due to the simplicity of everything and predictability of everyone, but the main chick is 20 years old and I actually don't see any YA tags. I can't bring myself to care.1.25 stars, honestly, but I'm feeling generous. I didn't actively hate it, like I said, and I try to save 1 stars for that. Still, this is a book that you reach for only in desperate need.

    Such a disappointment.This had some cool setting with women Alphas who rule with cunning, strategy and strength. I was also really hopeful for the hinted love story, because you don't get a lot ot Alpha meets Alpha in M/F UF books...Alas...Let me introduce you to the reason this sucked - and in her own words, no less:"The bright shirt also contrasting against my alabaster skin, inherited from my Danish and Norwegian mother. I never knew my father, but I was told his heritage was Polynesian islander. Which explained my dark lashes and brows, and what some have called disconcerting turquoise eyes."Yeah, yeah - those Polynesian islanders and their turquoise eyes! And by the way, her hair is platinum/silver blond. Impressed yet?Which explains why she needed a person of colour as her daddy to give her dark lashes over the aquamarine eyes (she called them that later, after turquois again). The alabaster skin gets some more mentions too.Isn't that some cool genetic mixture? I was trying to let that kind of inner monologue run with Kate Daniel's voice in my mind and wanted to instantly burn this book.Disappointed, you could say.DNF

    Rating : 3 starsVery quick and enjoyable read.Queen Heir is more of an introduction than a real first book with a real plot and character developpment. It fails at being complex but at the end of the last chapter, you can expect the story to pace up and actually grow in a real intrigue.The story is quite simple.The Queen of the wolves is dead, and as a heir, Arianna is convied to the Summit to fight for her rightful place. Against the three other heirs, she must win the different trials to become the new leader.Everything happens very quickly ; the first trial is a game of chess, the second is about magic itself, the third is about finding something before the other, and the fourth is a fight to the death. The trials are not really described, the point of the book is not to see if Arianna is going to be Queen or not. We already know that she is, and she also kind of knows it too, because she's smart, strong and above all cares very much about her people. She's the best heir of the four.The Queen of the wolves also has been murdered, and Arianna as heir and Queen will avenge her and find her killer. But we don't really get into the murder plot until the last third of the book. We know the Queen has been hinding things from her people and her council, and Arianna will have to uncover them and learn about the Faes, whom she thinks were dead.Queen Heir is a real easy read. The writing is not perfect, neither is the story nor the characters, but it's very entertaining and I couldn't put it down. I could say the concept is quite original with the mecca as all power's source but I'm not sure I understand how it works yet.Arianna is likeable, but she's putting too much effort into focusing about two kisses and it's eye roll worthy. There is pretty much always a mate thingie going on with shapeshifters, can't you just tell each other you're mates please ? Thank you.I'm looking forward reading the second book, hoping to get a better picture of the mecca system and a more complex plot.

    If at first you don’t succeed..You try again, and try they did. This is the second collab between Jaymin Eve & Leia Stone, first being the Hive Trilogy, and I am happy to say they got it right this time. It’s not 100% amazement and wonder to be honest. It is light years better than the previous collab attempt though.There are two shifter races, the Wolves and the Bears, each governed by a monarch, a King for the bears and a Queen for the wolves and the international balance of power between the two is determined on how many of the boroughs of New York city each of them have under their control. The book starts with the death of the Red Queen, the most powerful Wolf Queen to date, and the fact that our heroine, Arianna, will have to battle for her birthright to be the new Queen while she has to figure out who killed the old one. Things go a bit haywire from there as magic wielding shifters, witches, magical animals and fae are thrown at us. It is quite well written and detailed, keeping the mystery and having me wonder about things throughout. The heroine is strong and level headed, the hero is again quite a mystery though from the little I saw I liked him, the few prominent side characters were also good, the mysterious enemy sounds worthy, strong and actually dangerous and more often than not it had me chuckling to myself. Through all this goodness though, there were things that didn’t bode well with me. Even though there was danger and I saw it, it was absent from parts of the book. Arianna tells us that heirs have died during the Summit and that the tasks were mostly extremely difficult and/or dangerous, yet she was lucky to get all the easy stuff and the ones that she was great at. While I liked that the heroine is strong it also annoyed me that she was unchallenged, making her look ridiculously strong. She was an iron baseball bat while the other heirs were graham crackers. Guess which of the two would win in a fight. If her opponents were made to be stronger then her true strength would have come across more natural and balanced. Side characters have a purpose, which means they need to exchange words and act. Here we seem to have a few that could be interesting - Arianna adviser, best friend, friends, Kade and his war adviser - but we don’t really get to see them. There was insufficient dialogue between them and no matter how much info the MC gives it comes out dry as the desert sand if there is no significant dialogue and interaction. All in all I really did enjoy this book immensely and I sincerely hope that these negative attributes will be rectified and balanced out in the second book, which I honestly can’t wait to read.

    I clearly read a different book to everyone else because this was a bit of a trial to get though and I wish I'd either never started or given up. It was so clichéd and predictable. Ariana is the most perfect heir ever! She's the smartest! Has the best magical familiar! Ever! And the most awesome fighter! (view spoiler)[ she's also the most magical in the crystal test.(hide spoiler)] All the other heirs are the worst! Selene is evil because she's evil, Brenna is stupid and Devina is a slut! (and there's some serious slut shaming going on for the other girls- not Ariana, Ari has needs so she really should be having sex more, but the other girls are judged) *sarcasm over* she was just a ridiculously over powered character, there's no reason for her to be the most powerful shifter in memory but apparently she's just super brilliant.Other than being perfect Ariana doesn't actually seem to have much of a personality.Ariana is also - at 20 years old- apparently ruling thousands of other shifters and being followed by her loyal bodyguards, we just don't see anything she does to earn it or her doing anything to rule over the Bronx pack.It had the potential to be more unusual with the magic aspect, but it was just so swamped in cliches and the magic wasn't really explored or explained.

    DNF @21%I can't deal with the MC acting like she's the biggest shit in that place and everyone is beneath her but sing her praises. Also the writing is not that good if the narrator of the audio book can't bring it to life. Also if I hear the phase " My queen" one more time...Also This book is set in New York aka one of the most diverse cities in the world so why in the world everyone is pretty much whiter than copying paper? Yeah the MC if from the Brox but is white as hell This just like the selection all over again! It's no excuse for lack of diversity in a city were you know that city is very diverse.

    While I enjoyed this book, I really feel like it could be longer. The action that happened towards the end wasn't really that crazy. I only feel like we've scratched the surface of these characters and the first book should get us some deeper emotions.The story and plot are good, and I'm interested in seeing this story through. I just wish there was more to the attraction brewing between Kade and Arianna. So far while we have a lot of facts on the characters they are still a bit static and not well rounded. I seek more from the story.We ended in a place where, sure we've confirmed about like 1 thing or 2 things but everything else has been left.We don't know exactly who killed the queen.We know that Selene will be causing problems, but not sure what exactly.We know the council will probably be a problem.We know that Kade and Ari will also be making the rumor mill tick, and possibly make Ari lose her Queen status.I still don't understand why bears are forbidden? Just because of a long ass war, that happened way before she was born? I also suspect Arianna isn't completely wolf shifter. There are so many unanswered questions. So many. I don't like when books do this either. I don't like feeling that a subplot hasn't been finished, I understand a series arc plot taking books to finish, but subplots should be tied up. This wasn't. Not really. I still enjoyed the book. I still enjoyed the characters and the plot. So the authors are doing something right, there if I still like it after all those issues.

    I read this book because I've just finished Trickery by the same author and am waiting for the next book in that series. This book was good although not as good as I had expected based on the other series. The main character is Arianna; she's one of the four contenders to become queen however is given the role far too early in. This in my opinion made the character under developed, she is clearly the chosen character from the start and that is even more obvious that she's the one that's going to get chosen as queen. There are some secondary characters but none that I found particularly noteworthy. The storyline seemed to jump around a bit and the pacing seemed rushed. I think these two factors of the book were the biggest issues because they offset the rest of the book and the characters. 2.5 stars

    Première lecture de l’année et je ne sais pas trop quoi en penser ... les personnages sont cools et le tame de l’histoire est intéressante, bien pensée, mais l’univers Mecca n’est pas assez décrit, et ce à tel point que je me suis retrouvée un peu, voire carrément, perdue durant ma lecture ... c’était quand même un point assez ennuyant! Sinon il y a de l’action, je ne le nie pas, mais pas assez de rebondissements et de retournements de situations. On devine tout à’ l’avance, c’est dommage 😔Il y a un bon fil conducteur dans ce premier tome, mais tout va trop vite, ce n’est pas assez précis. J’ai eu l’impression qu’il manquait quelque chose ..,

    I adore both Leia and Jaymin, but until this book I had not gotten the chance to experience their mixed writing styles (as with their "Hive" series). I won a copy of "Queen Heir" in a giveaway of Jaymin's and I could not be more pleased to have received this much coveted read ahead of its release date. I could definitely see both authors' styles showcased within this vastly unique read.As with many authors' works, I could see bits and pieces of some of their more famed characters from in pervious books. I saw the kind and protectiveness of Kai (Matefinder) in Kade (even though these two technically aren't mates...), as well as Braxton's (Supernatural Prison) fierceness and intimidating presence. I could see the passion and love for her people of Aurora (Matefinder) in Arianna, as well as Jessa's (Supernatural Prison) snarky attitude and all-around badassery.Despite these familiar personalities, make no mistake that this is a wholly unique world that these two ladies have created. Shifter-focused, with a few twists and pieces to puzzle together, we are thrust into a world where predetermined heirs must fight to be the face of their people's future. In this world, it is Arianna's mission and destiny to lead the wolf-shifters after the death of their Red Queen, but first she must face the 'three' other Queen-heirs of age in a battle of wits, magic, and fighting prowess. Everyone is praying for her successful transfer into power, but what exactly is Ari signing up for should she become Queen? Evil is in the air and forces long-forgotten and thought to be extinct are finding themselves back on earth, right in the midst of the NYC shifters. The shifters will have to make some tough choices and trust in their long-time enemies if they are to weather the storms raging down upon them.Highly recommended to those who love the paranormal, fantasy, YA genres. The first in its series, now is the perfect time to get into this fine read, before your friends spoil everything for you like one of mine did. XD

    **Spoilers***This book was just... wow. Just... yikes. Arianna is queen Mary Sue. She was never truly challenged throughout the entire book. First we're introduced to this character with pale skin, blonde hair despite Polynesian heritage? Okay. But then she rules... the Bronx? Couldn't even give her some Latina heritage when choosing that she rules.... the bronx? Have you ever been to the bronx?Oh her best friend is also super special too. Everything in her life was handed down in perfect timing to make sure that everything was perfectly easy for her. Did I say she was handed everything. She had all the powers and all the perfect gifts to make it through. She was born that way. Her flaws were not really flaw. There was no conflict, not really. We knew she'd get it because the prime candidate. We were groomed to realize that no one else was even close--except for the girl who happened to be promiscuous and therefore was unfit to rule because of that... and her cold hearted-ness. There was no one designed to actually be a challenge! Also... the way that they wrote the "we're all hotblooded wolves but some of us have self control" was so slut-shamy and close minded blaaaaah. Even the conflict they tried to introduce for the love interest was just... flat. All of it was flat. He's a bear you kissed him when you were 15--but where's HER emotional conflict over possibly betraying her people through that? Why does she just do what she wants--its boring. boring. boring. The writing was gawd awful at descriptions. Gawd awful at introducing character descriptions. You know how pretty much all we knew of Hermione was her "bushy hair and buckteeth?" or how all we knew of Rue was her skin was darker than whats-her-face and she had the most beautiful eyes? You reveal character descriptions slowly in a novel--or well. At least if you're going to do it all at once do it well.Written for twilight fans and more people that also read bad fanfiction.

    Queen Heir could quickly become a favorite in my library. The mix of shifters, political protocols, forbidden loves and intrigue is perfect for the first book in a series. Having read multiple series both from Jaymin Eve and the Jaymin and Leia duo, I am always happily amazed at how talented they are at setting up fresh stories and characters so that I never feel like I'm reading the same story set in different places. I can't wait for the next book to find out more about the magic that is Arianna and Kade. I love how strong and smart Arianna is and how smoldering and considerate Kade is. This book was the perfect set up for future books, giving a glimpse into all the characters and potential subplots. The only negative for me was that it seemed like nothing was resolved in this first book. I always like to have at least one mystery resolved to make it feel like a complete book. But that might just be personal preference and not necessarily something to ding the review for.

    Another Amazing Book!!!!This one is very different from what you've come to expect from Jaymin Eve and Leia Stone. This one is definitely darker but in their own fashion it's a non-stop action rode with a little forbidden romance. If you're a fan of shifters then this one is a definite must read.

    These two authors have come together and created another spell bounding book that I want more of. I love when Jaymin Eve and Leia Stone write together. Seperately they kick butt, but together they are EPIC. This is not like your normal shifter book. It is unique and refreshing. This book over all was amazing.I need book two like yesterday!
