Queen Takes King by: Joely Sue Burkhart

Their Vampire Queen Book 2

Queen Takes Knights [Book 1 Review]

How many Blood will come to the vampire queen’s call… and will they be able to protect her from the king?

For the first time in her adult life, Shara has plenty of money thanks to the Isador legacy–and she’s not alone. Daire and Rik are devoted lovers, but they know other Blood are coming. Blood who may challenge Rik for the coveted alpha spot at her back.

As her power grows, so does her hunger. But without fangs, she fears she’ll never be the queen her Blood expect. More Blood means power struggles and complications, and she has no idea how to keep everyone happy. Worse, her dreams are quickly becoming something to fear.

Moving to establish her permanent nest, she can’t stop dreaming of the king. A massive monster. Chained in darkness. Lost to madness. He roars with fury in her dreams, demanding his release.

But is he the key to unraveling her own mysterious past–or the most dangerous threat of all?

This is a MMFFM+ series and Shara will never be forced to choose just one.


Content Warnings: Sexual scenes, blood/gore, blood play, violence, death, and murder. Mention of: rape, torture, loss of loved ones, forced solitude, forced servitude, and abuse.

Rik has already been established as her Alpha Blood and Shara will do whatever it takes to maintain his spot as Alpha but I worry that Daire, who we got to see a lot in book one, is going to get pushed aside with the addition of more, and stronger, Blood. I loved the dynamic between Shara Rik and Daire in book one and though I’m excited to see new additions to the group I’m afraid we may lose a lot of that original dynamic.

We get a lot of new information and I’m excited to see what else we learn as Shara grows in power and knowledge. I’m also excited to see more lore about the Blood she adds, as she grows her nest.

Although Shara, the Queen, is of course everyone’s main focus I’m hoping that as the series continues we see more friendships/relationships grow between her Blood. It would add so much more strength to the story to see more interactions between the Blood as genuine trust and love grows between them all.

Although this book only really covers…maybe 4 or 5 days it packs a whole lot of story into that time. I look forward to continuing the series as we uncover more lore and history associated with vampire Queens and their Blood.

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance. Ratings: 5 Stars: Completely blew me away 4 Stars: Loved the story but didn't feel completely blown away by it 3 Stars: Liked the overall concept of the story but either had poor execution, had a lot of plot holes, or was written poorly 2 Stars: I struggled to understand the plot, poorly written, or just had really unlikeable characters along with a poor writing 1 Star: Horribly written, major plot holes, or extremely unlikeable characters and plots.
