Eugenie found herself Queen of Thorn Land after killing it's last owner, she's no where near happy about it, but her sense of responsibility gets her to come back of Otherworld once in a while to make sure her land doesn't perish without her around. While travelling to visit Kiyo's pregnant ex, Eugenie discovers that her subjects are tortured by famine and aridity. But it's not the only extend of their problems; young girls have been disappearing for quite a while now. The Queen is gonna takes matters in her hands and do all she can to help her people, but it won't be easy task.
Her love life is no where near easy either. She's in a relationship with Kiyo but have an hard time making her mind around the fact that he is spending a lot of time with is pregnant ex (who wouldn't) and about to have a baby of his own, while she won't allow herself to have one scared to fulfill the prophecy. Dorian is still around, poking in her life and teasing her like he can so well! Nothing to ease matters!
Did I ever mention how I LOVE Richelle Mead's books? Well this is no exception! Storm Born was great but Thorn Queen is awesome! Eugenie is facing so many questions and moral issues it's a wonder she is still sane. Dealing with her sister, her lovers, her land, demons and humans problems, Eugenie got her plate full. But it's not gonna stop her and that's what I like about the girl; her insecurities are so real to. I was also really fond of Dorian in Storm Born and now I'm in love with the guy! He is just awesome.
If you haven't started this series yet, well run and go buy it! now! Beware that this isn't a young adult series and there are some pretty steamy sex scenes to provide you very neat images *winks*

I really liked this book a lot. I think I enjoyed it more then the first one because I got to know the characters more. There is a lot of action packed into this book, along with the suspense and plot twists that you can't see coming until it's already unravelled! The romance in this book if fabulous, Eugenie has such a hard time being in love with Kiyo yet something is so attractive about King Dorian at the same time! Eugenie is torn between two worlds, two men, and two different life styles. She struggles with witch way to turn... What Eugenie always thought was the right way, may end up being wrong for her after all!?!?! This book ends on a cliff-hanger as most of Richelle Meads books do, I can't wait for Iron Crowned!
