The Queen of the Underworld - Editorial Review

The first editorial review for The Queen of the Underworld is in... and I'm so relieved people are loving it so far!

An unforgettable journey into a realm of magic and mayhem…

Hazel’s second installment in the Occult series immerses readers in a world of magic, danger, and intrigue. After the downfall of The Occult and its leader, Prue is plagued by visions of The Queen of the Underworld, a formidable Demon who was banished from her realm by her own allies. With Lily, Prue’s closest friend, connected to the Queen, she and her half-brother Everett embark on a dangerous quest through different dimensions to stop the Queen and save their friend. But appearances can be deceiving, and the Queen will not hesitate to eliminate anyone who stands in her way.

In this high tension, action-filled story, complex characters face their own challenges, make difficult choices, and navigate a realm where darkness and light clash for control.  From Prue with her visions and inner turmoil, to formidable The Head and the enigmatic The Prophet, their interactions, conflicting motivations, and evolving relationships add depth to the narrative. The world-building is masterfully done, with vivid settings that transport readers into the mystical Underworld and the gritty streets of the city. The dynamic narrative voice shifts between characters, offering insights into their thoughts and emotions. This brings the story to life and allows readers to connect with the characters on a deeper level. Themes of family, loyalty, power, and sacrifice add layers to the characters’ journeys and the overarching conflict. A fascinating blend of fantasy, mystery, and adventure that will leave fans of urban fantasy spellbound. 

Happy reading!
