I was very excited to receive an Advanced Readers Copy of the sequel to The Women’s War by Jenna Glass.
Queen Alys is trying to get through her grief, while Elin is using creative ways to show the men around her that she is in control. There is also a new Abbess in Khalpar, however, she has been placed in this position to find a way to undo The Blessing that gives women control over their bodies. This Blessing is called The Curse by the majority of the men in this story.
Queen of the Unwanted deals with feminism and women’s rights in the best possible manner. Jenna Glass uses her skill to create a world of political schemes and to show the difficulty of a new social system between men and women.
The author also does a great job of touching on other matters, such as the importance of women being able to defend themselves. I especially liked how Glass outlined some great skills when it comes to a women’s self defense, like using your voice to scream and not to be afraid of violence against an attacker.
I really enjoyed this addition to The Women’s War series, especially the provocative ending! I cannot wait to find out what happens next!
Thank you for reading my review!!
