Jayne Thorne is a book nerd. Obsessed with the smells and history of the old books, her favorite place to be is working in the vaults of longstanding libraries. When her fingers gently caress the calligraphy of an ancient text and she steps into another realm, her whole world is flipped upside down.
As she learns the fantasies she read about are actually real, she quickly understands that she is in fact one of the strongest wielders of magic. Needing her strength, she is recruited by the TCO to help foil the plans of a magical group with dark intentions. Will Jayne be able to absorb how to use her new found skills, go undercover as a CIA operative, and stop this group from destroying the planet?
Reimagine the lay of the land through Joss Walker’s imagination and enter an atmosphere filled with enchantment in Tomb of the Queen. A tale consumed with questions, clues, and misdirection that will have you thinking you know the answer, just to be smacked with another unbelievable moment. This story will keep you scratching your head even after you have finished reading.
Yet, there is an excess of borderline profanity as well as references to not so borderline use that bring this novel’s rating down. Add a couple sexual references and a 4 out of 5 stars is the result.
Please read with caution if any of the following may cause distress: ocular migraines, death of parents, alcohol and drug use, divorce, drowning, fire related trauma, cults, paranoia, cancer, murder, war, hallucinations, kidnapping, hostages, enslavement, brainwashing, psychological warfare, deceit, betrayal, exploitation, stroke, hand to hand combat, homelessness, terrorists, anarchists, extremists, and thievery.
An introductory novel to the Jayne Thorne, CIA Librarian Series, Tomb of the Queen, engages readers with a standout mystical mystery. Cannot wait to continue this journey when the second book, Master of Shadows, releases in Summer 2022.
