Rebel Queen takes place in India, and is told from the viewpoint of Sita, one of the Queen's female soldiers. You immediately fall in love with this character and root for her success the entire time. Her childhood, her family, and her unknown future are intriguing and interesting. Like a typical Michelle Moran book, I found myself thinking about it after every time I stopped reading. It was captivating and well written.
My only wish: that I could have read some of the events from the viewpoint of the Queen. There is much turmoil during the book, most of which peaks at the very end. Reading Queen Lakshmi's thoughts and personal feelings during that time would be very fascinating.
For those that have not read it yet, make sure to grab your copy. Enjoy!
