The Queen's Assassin by Melissa De La Cruz was a quick, fun, and fascinating tale that had me glued to the pages.

I have been waiting to read this book and although I didn't completely love it as much as I thought I would (there's just some parts that had me scratching my head a few times), it's still an entertaining story and I really enjoyed it. The writing is good and easy to read. I liked the pacing and the plot is filled with conspiracy, secrets, lies, romance, adventure, and a few fun surprises and thrills. I think Shadow and Cal are great characters and I liked their chemistry. Their romance is swoony, but I definitely wanted more. Even though some things got resolved fairly quickly, I feel like the story all in all is pretty solid so I'll definitely be looking forward to continuing with the series.

If you're into YA fantasy with conspiracies, adventure and romance, then I think you might enjoy this one.
