The Queen's Triumph

Availability: Ready to download

Queen Samara Rani knows she’s likely walking into a trap, but agreeing to meet with Commander Adams is the fastest way to get within striking distance of the Quint Confederacy’s biggest traitor and her sworn enemy. Adams attacked her home and destroyed her ship, and if he’s not stopped, he will ruin the tentative peace between the Kos Empire and the Quint Confederacy—and S Queen Samara Rani knows she’s likely walking into a trap, but agreeing to meet with Commander Adams is the fastest way to get within striking distance of the Quint Confederacy’s biggest traitor and her sworn enemy. Adams attacked her home and destroyed her ship, and if he’s not stopped, he will ruin the tentative peace between the Kos Empire and the Quint Confederacy—and Samara’s chance at future with Emperor Valentin Kos. Samara is determined to serve up some well-deserved payback, but she is no longer a lone assassin, and despite her protests, her friends and allies refuse to let her undertake such a perilous mission without them. Even Valentin, usually the voice of reason, refuses to stay behind. Samara is loath to put her friends in danger, and taking a team carries its own risks, so she makes plans to keep them safe, no matter what the cost. When Adams threatens that safety, and everything she holds dear, Samara vows to show him exactly how she earned her deadly reputation—and why one should never cross the Rogue Queen.

    I really enjoy the strategy, competence, and intricacy of this world, and am sad to see an end to these novellas, particularly this end. It was fun to visit the setting again, but that was most of what I enjoyed. I really missed the detailed strategy of the prior novels, and it felt like a lot was glossed over or happened secretly instead. Sequels are hard, and there was an obvious pressure to forward Samara and Valentin's relationship, but it felt rushed and on the juvenile side in terms of jum I really enjoy the strategy, competence, and intricacy of this world, and am sad to see an end to these novellas, particularly this end.

Sequels are hard, and there was an obvious pressure to forward Samara and Valentin's relationship, but it felt rushed and on the juvenile side in terms of jumping to major relationship signposts to close things out. I will continue reading this author's work, though, and I think this remains a must-read to complete the storyline for people who enjoyed the prior two.

    I'm going to miss Samara and Valentin (and their friends). I know I already said it in one of my reviews but I don't mind repeating it: I love Jessie Mihalik's books and I'm always looking forward to her newest release. She is an auto-buy author for me and her sci-fi/space opera romances are too damn good, my poor little heart can barely handle it. The Queen's Triumph was no exception. I loved it and I wish it had been longer just because I'm a glutton for Jessie Mihalik's stories/characters/word I'm going to miss Samara and Valentin (and their friends).

    Triumph This series has all the things I love in a book. Love, adventure, space, spaceships. This book had a great end to the series. The adventure was great. I am sad to see it end but enjoyed it very much.

    Was it Ever! RogueQueen3 Sorry to see this series end; and JM really made us work for it. The pockets of levity didn’t slow the momentum, though they were nice respites. Just a great read all around.

    Of all of the Rogue Queen books, “The Queen’s Triumph” is my least favorite. While I did not enjoy this read I found the first 50% to be rather dull and lack luster due to a total lack of action. There was a lot of dull planning and descriptions of various blocks in the planet to be used for the upcoming meeting with Adams. Instead of reading this in one sitting it took me days to read. I read a little bit and then had to put it down. Unfortunately, I found Adams more interesting than the good g Of all of the Rogue Queen books, “The Queen’s Triumph” is my least favorite. While I did not enjoy this read I found the first 50% to be rather dull and lack luster due to a total lack of action. There was a lot of dull planning and descriptions of various blocks in the planet to be used for the upcoming meeting with Adams. Instead of reading this in one sitting it took me days to read. I read a little bit and then had to put it down. Unfortunately, I found Adams more interesting than the good guys. Much of the first half of this book felt like filler. Nothing substantive and a lot of droll details. After the first half things began picking up and I finally reconnected with the characters and world I previously was so enamored with. Queen Rani was back and so was the action. One of the things that bothered me was how Rani is described as this mastermind Assassin; yet, Adams seems to always get the drop on her at every turn. I would have lived to see her get the drop on him even if for a short time and even have her wound him before the final battle. I can’t tell from the ending of this book if this is the end of the series or if there will be future installments. I guess only time will tell.

    I really enjoy Mihalik's work, and I love me a space opera. Both this book and the final in her full series struggle with wrapping up a series. I was somewhat bored by this installment, and wasn't terribly interested in the cat-and-mouse chase between our leads and the villain. I think Mihalik's strongest book was her first full-length novel - Polaris Rising - and I think the reason it succeeds is that the leads spend extensive amounts of time together, learning each other through the conflict.

I think Mihalik's strongest book was her first full-length novel - Polaris Rising - and I think the reason it succeeds is that the leads spend extensive amounts of time together, learning each other through the conflict. In the succeeding books, (especially the third), the conflict dominated to the point where I didn't really invest in the leads. This happened here - we finally get the consummation of the leads' relationship but they are just jetting from place to place and I'd rather they just hang out and talk, really... Anyway. I think this series built a really cool world in the restricted, serialized, novella format, and I still enjoy the works greatly.

    What a great ending to this wild trilogy. Samara and Valentin make an excellent pair and gah all the politics of this world are just my favorite. So intense and this picked up right where the sequel left off with the crew needing to figure out how to get Commander Adams' trifling self under control or killed. Love the strong bonds in behind Queen Samara Rani. Her people Ari, Stella, Imogen, Eddie like just yes and Emperor Valentin and Luka the fiercest pair. The way this series balanced action, What a great ending to this wild trilogy. Samara and Valentin make an excellent pair and gah all the politics of this world are just my favorite.

The way this series balanced action, politics and romance is my favorite like can we swoon at this: “Because no matter where you go, you’ll take my heart with you." Like I can'tttt. Also this book introduced a new favorite Sawya a non-binary badass in charge of a whole space station and just running shit. Here for itttt. I would read all the stories of folks just living their lives forever and ever amen lol Jessie is a favorite author for sure with the Consortium Rebellion series and this one, gimme all the space adventures and drama and intense politics and romance, I'm in for whatever is next. 🤘

Queen Samara Rani is working to put an end to Commander Adams and his traitorous activities, trying to undermine peace talks between the Quint Confederacy and the Kos Empire. She has agreed to a meeting, even though she’s sure it will be a trap. The trick is to trap him first and of course Emperor Valentin Kos insists on being part of the mission, along with her most trusted friends. Their quarry is illusive and devious, and the chase takes a toll on all of them. But the reward for taking him out will be a chance at peace for everyone, and an opportunity for the relationship between Samara and Valentin to flourish. I’m sorry to see this series end, but what a very satisfying ending it was.

    I loved the first 2 books in this series and was super excited to get my hands on this one. Unfortunately it didn't quite live up to my expectations. I am not sure why. I still enjoyed it it was just somehow less than the others. I was a little bored in places - it just lacked the same sense of action, urgency and romance of the first two. And while some roadblocks in the way of our heroes certainly make things more interesting it would be nice if the villain wasn't two steps ahead of them the e I loved the first 2 books in this series and was super excited to get my hands on this one.

    Happily ever after This was a great wrap up of the series and it continued the fast pace and engrossing storyline. It is always sad to wrap up a story that you have invested in. The only disappointment was the inclusion of detailed sexual scenes. I don't remember her other books in the series having this much. As much as I enjoyed this series I will careful before future purchases of her books that they are clean.

    Final book Well written and caps off the series well, though it is my least favorite book in the series. I got frustrated with Samara's savior complex and thought the romance felt a little...disconnected? Something made it hard to be interested in it, so I was a bit frustrated with how much it dominated the plot. The ending was fairytale and a little too easy for my tastes, but I know others will enjoy it. Final book Well written and caps off the series well, though it is my least favorite book in the series.

    Excellent story This series has just the right combination of action, intrigue, and romance. It's set in an intergalactic universe without turning into a campy space opera. The characters are solid and believable and the setting is consistent and not too techy for a sci-fi. I can't wait for more by this author.

    A good ending to this trilogy. Samara. and Valentine finally get to their HEA but not before one other character has to bite the dust. A lot of tension and danger as the two work together to end the threat. Also a lot of romance. Loved the ending.

    Read the serial version. It’s my first trilogy that follows one couple and it kept me engaged. Forever grateful for a story to keep me company over the pandemic. I am hoping there will be other stories in this world.

    A great ending to a fun series. I especially liked the fact that Samara accepts that she needs the rest of her team despite wanting to do it all herself and protect the ones that she loves. On this note there are a couple of good lines in the book from those people in her team making her realise that she isn't helping them by trying to protect them - they feel the same way as she does when she puts herself in danger. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more books by this author. A great ending to a fun series.

I already miss the characters, but they're short, so I can do a quick reread when I'm really missing them. 4.5 Samara and Valentin have my whole heart.
