Audio Book Review: Tear Down the Throne By Jennifer Estep

Tear Down the Throne
(Gargoyle Queen #2)
By Jennifer Estep 

Narrator: Lauren Fortgang
Length: 13 hours and 29 minutes

Bestselling author Jennifer Estep continues her Gargoyle Queen epic fantasy series where magic reigns, alliances are tested, and a dangerous attraction could tear down a throne.

Crown princess. Clever spy. Powerful mind magier. Gemma Ripley of Andvari is all those things--and determined to stop an enemy from using magical tearstone weapons to conquer her kingdom.

Gemma's quest for answers leads her to a trade Summit between the various kingdoms. Among the other royals in attendance is Queen Maeven Morricone of Morta and her son, Prince Leonidas--Gemma's charming and dangerous nemesis.

Gemma knows that Maeven always has a long game in motion, and sure enough, the cunning queen invokes an arcane tradition that threatens the fragile truce between Andvari and the other kingdoms. Despite her best intentions, Gemma once again finds herself thrown together with Leo and battling her growing feelings for the enemy prince.

When a series of deadly attacks shatters the Summit's peaceful negotiations, Gemma realizes that someone wants to tear the royals down from their thrones--and that this enemy just might succeed.

My Review:

This book was a fantastic continuation of Gemma's story! Though it did start off slow by the end I was hooked. The world-building continues to be incredible. I love the lore the author created for this series. 

Gemma is a bad*ss! I love how she fights for what she believes is right and how she'll defend the people she loves. I enjoyed seeing her piece the puzzle of betrayal throughout this story.

Leonidas has officially won me over in this book. At first, I was iffy about whether he was trustworthy or not. He's proved himself throughout this novel to Gemma. I actually kinda sorta started to like him by the end.

Overall, I loved reading Gemma's story and plan to pick up the next book when it releases (boy! is it going to be a long few months 😭). I can't wait to see what the author has up her sleeves for the next installment of this series. Fingers crossed that Gemma and Leonidas have a happy ending!

The Audio Book:

The narration was great! All the characters were distinguishable from each other.
