Nikki Katz
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: January 14th 2020
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

From Nikki Katz, the author of The Midnight Dance , comes The King’s Questioner, an epic YA fantasy featuring royal drama, dark magic, and a secret that could topple a kingdom.

Kalen is a mental picklock, able to access a person’s memories and secrets by touch. His skills make him the perfect questioner to the king, and he spends his days interrogating prisoners of the crown.

But when Kalen’s estranged childhood friend, Prince Cirrus, falls into a sudden coma, the king begs Kalen to intervene. By accessing Cirrus’s mind, Kalen saves his life—and uncovers a terrifying secret. The prince has a sister, banished long ago, and she is the key to the destruction or survival of the kingdom.

With the help of Cirrus and a silver-haired thief named Luna, Kalen must find the princess and bring her home. Or risk death at the hands of his king.

A Thrilling Fantasy  with Plenty of Adventure, Magic & Mayhem, 

and A Sweet Romance 

4halfhearts

The King’s Questioner by Nikki Katz is a thrilling YA fantasy story filled with adventure, magic, drama, and plenty of thrills that will keep readers enthralled until the very last page.

Kalen has a rare ability that allows him to access someone’s personal memories with a touch. His gift (or curse as he likes to call it) makes him a valuable asset to the king and the perfect questioner to prisoners of the crown. When Kalen discovers a secret that could either destroy or save the kingdom, he sets out on a mission to find the prince’s younger sister who was banished a long time ago. Will Kalen succeed in figuring out the truth about the princess and safely bring her home?

The premise for this book intrigued me from the very beginning and I’m happy to say that overall, this is an enjoyable and entertaining YA fantasy tale. Even though the beginning chapters are a bit slow for me, there are elements of the story that I found interesting enough to keep me reading and I’m so happy I did. The story picks up quite nicely, the characters are absolutely adorable, and the storyline is thrilling, twisty, and just so much fun! I enjoyed the world-building, the magic, the drama, the suspense, the action, and the twists and surprises. I love the dynamic between Kalen, Luna and Cirrus and seeing them all grow to become better friends is so heartwarming. There’s even a little romance, but I won’t get into details and ruin the fun for you. It’s definitely cute and swoony and just enough to keep you wanting more. I have to say, there are a few minor flaws, some awkward scenes towards the end, and the conclusion just seemed a bit too rushed. However, those didn’t really take away much from the story and all in all, I truly had a great time reading this book and going on an epic adventure with Kalen, Luna, and Cirrus. Definitely going to miss those three and of course, Reign too.

With an engaging storyline, interesting and loveable characters you’ll root for with all your heart, and an exciting adventure you won’t want to end, The King’s Questioner is a must-read fantasy book that will surely thrill plenty of readers. Nikki Katz has created such a fun and fascinating tale filled with danger, action, secrets, magic, friendship, loyalty, and so much more. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend you add this on your TBR!

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher and Xpresso Book Tours for participating in a Book Blog Tour. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
