      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the author, Robert Evert, and the publisher, Diversion books, for this opportunity.This started off as a promising fantasy adventure, which sadly didn't follow through. My problem with this is that it seemed to try to hard to showcase the sexism prevalent in the fictional society. This is not, of course, a bad thing. It was the way in which it was showcased that I found completely and utterly infuriating. So, apologies [...]

      I received an advanced review copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I went into this book with pretty high hopes. It sounded amazing and the synopsis says "a thrilling new series for fans of Sarah J. Maas." I was so pumped. However, this book is not for fans of Sarah J. Maas. Sarah writes great books with badass female characters. This book was littered with sexism, misogyny, and the main character is a misandrist. It started when the main character's two "best friends [...]

      "I want someone who wants something. Something he's willing to work hard for. Something he'd dedicate his life trying to get, you know?"* 1 / 5 Frankly, I found Quests of the Kings to be rather boring. Natalie, the main character, is all over the place in terms of personality, there's a lot of sexist attitudes to wade through (the world, not the author's opinions, per se), and the plot doesn't really pick up until about half-way through. The main idea is that Natalie runs afoul of an adventurer, [...]

      Nathalie, a sixteen year old girl works hard to keep her family alive. She has many different jobs during the day, not wishing to marry to a man. Not like the other girls. In fact, she hates to be a woman because of the way they are treated by society. The life of an adventurer, the ones who take up perilous quests the king offers in exchange for gold and influence, seems very far away. Yet, somehow Nathalie manages to get on the evil adventurer Brago’s bad side. Running from this threat to he [...]

      Note: I received a free e-copy of the book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest reviewCharacters:This was the most problematic area for me. The only thing I liked about the main character, Natalie, was her name. She was like a study in contradictions. She was also a little too angsty to be relatable, at least to me. I found her character problematic because she is portrayed as a man-hater and if that's supposed to be a feminist view, I don't agree with it at all. Plus, she gets herself into [...]

      This Review was first posted on my blog kimslr - bookish I recieved an e-arc for this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I rated this book 4 Stars, which apperently is a lot higher than most other reviewers up until now. The reason for this is, that I didn't look at this book as an epic high fantasy novel for fans of Sarah J Maas. That's what the book is pitched as, but reading the book under this premis will disappoint almost anyone. I didn't remember this pitch when I read it, [...]

      "From the author of the Riddle in Stone books comes a thrilling new series for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Kristin Cashore."Quest of the Kings promised a lot that ultimately wasn't delivered, the blurb itself creates expectations that aren't fullfilled later on. When I requested this book from NetGalley I thought I was going to read a story about an adventure, I wasn't even expecting much from the heroine or the world-building (I've made that mistake before) but I did expect a plot. There is none. [...]

      Copy received via NetGalley for an honest review.Rating: 1 starI skimmed through 90% of this book. There were no compelling characters, had zero world building, and the plot was so smooth and straight I could use it for a ruler. Everything that happened was only for convenience. No thrill and no excitement. I honestly could have slept through this whole novel. The main character had no redeeming qualities - she only made me want to strangle her after every word she said. As much as I tried to lo [...]

      ARC received via NetGalleyI thought the plot idea was appealing. It was an okay adventure story. However it wasn't as exciting (adventure wise) as I was hoping it would be.I wasn't very happy with how the book ended. Nearing the end of the book, I didn't expect for it to end the way it did. I thought the actual ending was a bit boring.

      This review was originally posted on NetGalley.This was a peculiar reading, but I will admit that it was a challenge to stay engaged with the plot and the characters. I think the world we live in is already violent enough and to have to read about this amount of physical abuse and verbal attacks is not what I want after a day of work and sad news.Natalie is a young girl of 16 years that struggles with her role in society and family responsibilities in an unnamed medieval world where men are divi [...]

    • Leila says:

      Welcome to an unnamed country in a medieval time period, where knights, and men who can afford it, go on adventure quests set by the kings. The item they seek is always different, as are the prizes.Natalie is a 16 year old girl who hates being a girl. She hates how women have no rights and how men can do whatever they want to them with just about no repercussions. HATES. IT. OK??? Got it? She doesn't want to get married, she doesn't want to wear dresses, doesn't want to work normal feminine jobs [...]

    • Caitlin says:

      This review was originally posted on my blog, Just a Few Chapters More!2.5/5 stars.Quest of the Kings by Robert Evert had so much potential, but it lacked the depth needed to make it a great novel. The world-building was limited, the writing was overly simple (for my taste), and the main character grated on my nerves from the first page until pretty much the last. However, the plot was intriguing, and some of the supporting characters had compelling stories, enough to keep me reading until I had [...]

    • Hector Torres says:

      I received a advance review copy and seriously was hoping this was a good book, the premise was decent and you felt that it would go to someplace good but the moment you start reading your hit with heavy heavy dialogue between multiple characters mostly just nonsense conversations not related to overall story. I understand author is attempting to show the dynamics between Natalie and her friends, but at some point I was like OK breathe, lets the characters breathe when they are speaking for a pa [...]

      **I obtained a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The short version: This book wasn't as good as I was hoping. For me, when the main character is a flop, so is the book.The long version:My Summary:The kings of the realms in this world, instead of gaining influence through war, have decided to send knights and adventurers on a "King's Quest," a quest all the kings agree on, but only one can win.These quests never seemed to have anything to do with sixteen-year-old p [...]

      *I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*First, it wasn't a horrible story. I was able to finish this book 1-2 sittings. The plot sounded incredibly good, but it was just too ambitious. What the author created was a simple story with no depth. It did not tug on my emotions. Honestly, the main character, Natalie, was just not likable. The "plain and ordinary" girl that the author describes was mary-sue like. There were times when you wanted to feel b [...]

      I received this book from a giveaway. The genre was right up my alley so I was thrilled to read it. The story started out boring. Being poor and a girl seemed to be all that mattered. After getting through that beginning, the story line became much more interesting. Fairly predictable, but with a few twists, it kept me interested. I’m the end, I couldn’t put the book down. I very much enjoyed it and will be looking forward to book #2.

    • Nicole says:

      I expected a more serious book from the description and the cover. This reminded me more of the T.H. White take on Arthurian legend. It is lighthearted, even at the most dire of times, and the quest is complicated and strung along as characters bumble and fumble around. Entire pages are dedicated to conversations and bickering about unimportant things for the sake of humor, and the really terrible things are treated with fleeting gravity. It is very Monty Python at times. If that is what you enj [...]

    • ~Fancy Headaches and Tea ~ says:

      Thank you NetGalley for providing an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.One word: Nope.It was written like a middle grader with YA feel. The characters didn't know how to act their age. It felt as a middle grader with cursing words. It was such a downer for me.

    • Sethia says:

      This book was ok. The whole book felt rushed. I felt main character was not very relatable. On whole not a bad story.

    • Emma says:

      review to come

    • Tiana says:

      I really enjoyed reading Quests of Kings, it was an adventure. As much as I enjoyed reading it I wanted more. There was something about the characters and how they were written that makes you want to care, but also separates readers from them. This book felt like one big adventure story. It ignites an almost childlike wish to go out into the world and experience all there is to see. To be and do something more. I liked Natalie as a main character. However, I felt she was confused and at times ac [...]

    • M.J. says:

      I received a free E-Arc from Netgalley of this book.I don't like to be negative about a book from the very beginning, but I genuinely am not sure what the author was trying to accomplish with this book. If it was to sympathetically portray a young woman in a society governed by men who must try and survive despite the odds, then it failed quite badly. If it was to paint a picture of a good old fashioned quest from a different perspective to that of the gallant knights, then again it failed. I am [...]

    • ☘Tara Sheehan☘ says:

      I have to admit, this was a hard book to read as a woman because of the sheer violence and attitudes towards women in this book even if it was part of the culture/history of a certain age. Thankfully the main female character is portrayed to be strong, independent and with a high sense of self-esteem so there was some ‘balance’ to the vehement antagonistic attitudes that permeated the story line. She had to be strong because she was ferociously beaten up multiple times and would not have sur [...]

    • Rosie Rizk says:

      I'd rate this at about 2.5. Mostly, it's due to the main character - who comes across as a super selfish brat. She complains the entire time that she doesn't need a man, and makes that into her motto, but instead of being a self-sufficient woman, she runs straight to men anytime she needs help. That's not the end of the world, but her constant complaints are really annoying. If the author was aiming to prove that women can be self-sufficient, even in a male dominated world, then he did a horribl [...]

    • Ariel says:

      Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I did not enjoy this book. It's very simplistic, I honestly felt like next to nothing happened, I could easily cover every major point in a couple of sentences. Instead, much of the time is wasted on the main character Natalie or Nat crying, complaining about how horrible men are (despite all the men she runs into but the villains are not just nice to her but go out of their way to help her on multiple occasions). She shouts at her fri [...]

    • LilistarReads says:

      * ARC received from Netgalley and Diversion in exchange for an honest review* I would definitely recommend this book for a quick read piled with adventure, blood and heartache! The setting of this book was mesmerising, especially the description of the Cathedral of Stars and how unknowingly beautiful it was. The description of everything was vivid without being so long it bores you.The way Evert makes you feel about the characters is amazing, particularly the villain, normally when you read a bo [...]

    • Trisha says:

      This book has great potential. The plot needs a bit more development. For example, in situations in which grievous death occurs (I remain vague so as to not spoil anything) there is not much grieving that occurs. I lacked an emotional attachment to the reader. Perhaps this was because it was meant to be a fast-paced, easy read. Either way, I failed to engage with the story. I will also say that it was difficult to read from a woman's perspective because of the vulgarity and disposition of most o [...]

    • MessohReads says:

      I received a free copy of this book for review through NetGalley**While this wasn't the best or most unique thing I've ever read, and I don't agree that it should be marketed for fans of Sara J Maas (but I see why a YA writer would use that as an appealing factor for their book) I still found the book an enjoyable fantasy quest tale. A lot of issues I've seen other people have with this book is the way the main character is berated for not being feminine enough and people have an issue with how [...]

    • Artemiz says:

      Robert Evert’s first book in The Quest of the Kings Trilogy is an interesting read. If usually adventure stories are written about men/boys then this story is about a girl, an usual girl, who just happens to be in wrong place at a wrong time. Usually girls get romantic stories but in this book Nataly gets beaten up, forced to flee from home to keep her family safe, search protection from an adventuring knight and she learns to be strong, no matter what life throws at her. In a way it’s an un [...]

    • Candace Wondrak says:

      I really wish my phone hadn't tanked and deleted the entire review I just made. I'm retyping this on my laptop so it's going to be short. I apologize for that. I didn't like the Main Character, Nat. I didn't like the sexism, even though it went along with the time/fantasy period. I didn't like how Nat's language seemed modern. She seemed too whiny for my taste and I didn't connect with her. I'm disappointed, not only in this book, but also in my phone for deleting my longer and more coherent rev [...]
