WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
When Gallen O’Day is hired to as a bodyguard to escort a young woman through the woods to the forbidden ruins at Geata Na Chruinn, it seems like an ordinary job—but all too soon, he finds himself fleeing for his life from creatures that seem like escapees from a nightmare—the alien dronon, led by their golden queen. With his best friend, a genetically engineered talking bear named Orick, and his girlfriend Maggie, Gallen soon finds himself tangled in an interstellar war that he never knew existed, racing across a host of worlds, confronted by a future unlike any that he had ever imagined.
IS IT GOOD?
It has 4.7 stars on Amazon. Here are some editorial reviews:
“David Farland's Golden Queen trilogy — The Golden Queen, Beyond the Gate, and Lords of the Seventh Swarm — is . . . the equivalent of Lord of the Rings in space. It begins small, as a seemingly insignificant character gets caught up in the affairs of dangerous, evil beings that threaten everything good about human life. Then with twists and turns that left me gasping, Farland launches us into space to do things that at the beginning of the book we couldn't have dreamed of.” –Orson Scott Card
“When you want to slap a character for her naive arrogance on one page and comfort her on the next, you know you've found a writer with a gift for characterization. . . . This is an enjoyable story. Recommended.” –Starlog Magazine
“It's a long, colorful book. There's a pleasure, a richness, or a surprise on every page-sometimes all three. There's immense scope to The Golden Queen, and a wonderful sense of presence. Any reader can simply plunge into this novel and be off to alien worlds and wonderful adventures.” –Richard A. LupoffRead more reviews here.
