Lor has endured twelve long years of torment under the Aurora King’s rule. Her only desire is to escape and pay him back for every moment of misery she's endured.
When a surprise release finds her in the hands of the rival Sun King, Lor is thrust into the spotlight as she competes against nine other Tributes for the role of queen. If she wins his heart, she'll earn her freedom and finally get her revenge.
But Lor doesn't belong in the Sun Queen Trials. Not only does she not understand why she was freed, she isn’t a citizen of the Sun King’s court. The other Tributes resent her presence and will stop at nothing to ensure Lor is removed from the competition, permanently.
Now Lor must win, because if she loses, she dies. Or worse, she'll be returned to the evil—and now vengeful—Aurora King.

Trial of the Sun Queen almost cured me of my July reading slump - it’s fast paced, I loved the characters, and it borrows elements from other stories I’ve loved so I didn’t have to think too hard about the world building. Like a lot of romantasy, the focus is more on relationships than heavy worldbuilding and deep political intrigue.
If you’re in your romatasy era or post-Fourth Wing slump, I highly recommend this one! It has elements from The Hunger Games, The Bachelor, and ACOTAR, which are all things that I love.
I did find the book to be fairly predictable - but in a fun way?
I picked it up when it was still on KU, and before it got picked up by Forever/Orbit, but I do think it’s worth the more expensive price. It’s also available on my Libby, if you like to get your books for free! Trial of the Sun Queen is the first in a four book series - the first two have been published and are available on Audible, but we have to wait until June for Book 3!
Y'all this book reads SO fast. And to everyone giving recommendations for what to read after Fourth Wing.... This might be it. I've heard it described as ACOTAR meets Hunger Games, a whole bunch of hot fae shit, and I'm not mad at either. There's action, sexy time, discussion of trauma, the works. I struggled a bit understanding all of the characters' motivations, but it could just be because it's book 1.
Was the plot a bit predictable? Yes. Did I enjoy it? Also yes.
