Review of Monarch by Geonn Cannon
Claire Lance is back! I honestly never thought I would say that again. This is book 6 in the Claire Lance series and book 5 came out seven years ago! After so many years, I never thought we would see Claire again so this was a real treat. While this was my least favorite book out of the series, I had so much fun spending time with Claire again.
I started reading this series about 8 years ago and it still holds a special place in my heart. I had been reading WLW books for a while, but this series was very different. This was about a slightly morally grey character, who would bend the rules to make things right. And not only was she a bit of a rule-breaker, but she also was a total badass. This series was so unlike the other books I was reading in the WLW genre and I just loved it. It was such a fun action series that eventually turned into an action-romance series. I loved all five books and I was sad when it ended. So to get a chance to visit Claire again, even though this book wasn’t my favorite, made me one happy camper.
It is so hard to write about anything in this book without giving spoilers away to people who have not read the whole series. If you think you might be interested I would suggest picking up Book 1, Tilting at Windmills, and not even reading this book’s blurb. You could read this book as a standalone if you wanted to. The story is contained enough and Cannon fills in some blanks about Claire’s past. The problem is, is that it also gives away some major storyline spoilers as to what happened over the previous five books. Books 1-5, are a contained series so this was like a bonus, where are the characters now and throw in a little action since it’s Claire.
I know this is not the most in-depth review but I don’t want to spoil anything for readers who might want to start at the beginning. After all this time, the first 5 books of the series are still so different compared to other WLW action and action-romance books out there. This series will always hold a special place in my heart and I’ll happily read more Claire any day. 3.75 Stars.
