Blog Tour & Giveaway: Queen of Swords by Katee Robert

Queen of Swords (Sanctify, #1)
Queen of Swords by Katee Robert
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Release Date: June 12, 2012
Purchase :  Amazon / Barnes and Noble

When the cards tell Ophelia Leoni she's supposed to marry the Prince of Hansarda, the gunrunner grits her teeth and boards the starship that comes for her. It doesn't matter if the ship's commander is the gorgeous stranger whose bed she just spent a wild, drunken night in. As a Diviner, she’s painfully aware the cards don't lie. Ever.

Boone O’Keirna knows Ophelia is trouble the second he sees the way she moves. Not about to let the deadly little hellcat marry his sadistic half-brother, Boone pretends to be the Prince’s emissary and kidnaps Ophelia. Too bad they can’t be in the same room without him wanting to throw her out an airlock–or into bed.

Even as they fight each other–and their explosive attraction–Ophelia and Boone sense something is wrong. Too much is going their way. Soon, they realize while the cards may never lie, the truth is sometimes hidden between them…and the future king of Hansarda is not one to take defeat lying down.

Woohoo! If you are looking for a great sci-fi book then look no further this one has it all. Aliens, adventure, space, and one kick ass heroine!! Katee Robert has definitely grabbed my attention with her Sanctify series.

Ophelia is a Diviner. A special type of species that serves the Lady, a God that gives them the power of seeing the past, present, and future through card reading. Ophelia, who helps run her fathers gunrunner business, returns home after a devastating loss to her crew after not listening to her cards. Once there she finds out she has to marry the Prince of Hansarda and not only does she not have a choice, but she has to leave right away. Complications arise when Boone, the one night stand she thought she left behind comes to get her to take her to her awaiting husband to be. Having plans of his own, Boone and Ophelia embark on a fantastic adventure told from both POV's that is beyond exciting.

I loved all the card reading that was done throughout the book. It was intriguing and very different from anything I have read before. It showed another side to Ophelia and it showed that she does have a soft side no matter how much she tried to hide it. The heat between Boone and Ophelia was off the charts!! Their chemistry was so hot that I needed a fan beside me! I enjoyed every single character that was written in this book. I have to say that I have a soft spot for Cole and I really can't wait to see more of that awesome tigerman. Jenny was another great addition. She was fun and I have a feeling that Ophelia and her will make a great pair of badasses. Like I said every character was amazing and were totally right for the story.

I can't leave out the awesome world that Robert has created here. There are so many things going on, but I never felt lost. I want to know more I tell you MORE!! I loved all the aliens running around and I would have loved a glossary in the back detailing each species. They all sounded so unique and different that I like I said wanted more.

A great story with a wonderful sci-fi cast! I cannot wait for the next installment!!

One more thing! I would highly recommend reading The High Priestess before reading this one. There is a HUGE bomb dropped at the end of this one and if you don't read the The High Priestess fist you won't catch and believe me you won't want to miss it!
