Review: Queen of Trees

Queen of Trees
by Lynn Lowery

Mordavia lies in peaceful slumber as it has for centuries. Lana the Tree Warder uses her powers of nature in World Wood, guarding and protecting the trees and cares little for the outside world. Then the day comes when she meets prince Kail Mageking and everything changes. On a quest against the darkest of evils she soon discovers she is on a journey that could cost her more than her life. It could cost Lana her heart.

"Queen of Trees" takes us to the environmentally friendly world of Mordavia. I enjoy how the author added subtle touches of conservaton throughout the book, but in no way lectures the reader.

Lana, the Tree Warder, protects the trees from harm. She is bright, courageous, and easy to like and admire. Kail is the Prince of Mordavia, who while handsome and sweet, could have played a stronger role in winning back the kingdom.

I have many favorite moments in the book, like the exciting fight where Lana shows her prowess with a bow. Then there is the quirky secondary character, Rey, an Elf, who helps them on their quest. Though if I had to pick my favorite, it would be the lovely ending with a twist that I didn't see coming. "Queen of Trees" is an action packed tale that will leave the reader wanting more.
