The Kings Questioner From the author of 'The Midnight Dance' comes an epic YA fantasy featuring royal drama dark magic and a secret that could topple a kingdomKalen has been cursed with a gift he’s a mental picklock able to access a person’s memories and secrets by touch His skills make hi Thank you so much Swoon Reads for providing me a free copy through Edelweiss in exchange of an honest reviewGreat premise but the book needed polishCHARACTERSThe characters felt very two dimensional and overall underdeveloped and I just couldn’t get into them and care about their struggles and adventureswhich is a shame because at times I could glimpse something that would make me think “oh I want to learn about you”; characters are the pillars of every story and if they are not solid it doesn’t matter how good the story is it will always lack somethingWORLD BUILDING AND PLOTThe world building felt underdeveloped we have no idea how the magical world is organized and how it impacts the day to day life the sociopolitical and economic situation is barely brushed upon and we are supposed to use the tidbits to build the picture ourselvesThe plot was very fast paced and while it had its peaks where it would piue the interest most of the time it was very underwhelmingWRITINGThe writing felt very rough and clunky with random in depth descriptions of inconseuential situations and an over abundance of telling instead of showing FINAL NOTEI think this can be enjoyed by those that don’t give too much importance to the characters and are only in for the journey and adventureSadly I’m not one of those

M the perfect uestioner to the king and he spends his days interrogating prisoners of the crownBut when Kalen’s estranged childhood friend Prince Cirrus falls into a sudden coma the king begs Kalen to intervene By accessing Cirrus’ mind Kalen saves his life and uncover Theoretically a fascinating fantasy using the idea of magic mind control abilitiesWe have a banished child left to a tortured lonely life because of a prophecy Prophecies are chancy things at best and the King's actions prove to have been indeed foolish Personally I felt the king was a despairing frightened despot The promise of excitement with Kalen who has the mental ability to unlock the deepest darkest hidden secrets Prince Cirrus whose memories have been tampered with and the mysterious thief Luna lured me in Sadly I found the storyline struggled at times resulting in a somewhat predictable read that was not as engaging as I'd hoped for I'm hoping the next in the series will up the anteA Macmillan Children's Group ARC via NetGalley
