There are three books in the series, The Queen of All That Dies, The Queen of Traitors, The Queen of All That Lives. I have a few series of books that I like, but this one is by far my favorite. It is one that I do hope to make into a film or series one day. It is very easy to picture it all in your head as if a film. The characters are enjoyable and conflicted; the world is vastly interesting and dark; but it is the characters and the way that they are and how they deal with their inner conflicts and feelings and what is going on around them that makes this series a winner. The writing is fantastic. The series has a high rating on Goodreads and Amazon. I encourage you to give it a shot. Synopsis:
"In the future, the world is at war.
For the last decade, King Lazuli of the Eastern Empire has systematically taken over the world. No one knows much about him other than a series of impossible facts: he cannot die, he has not aged since the conflict began, and he wants to rule the world.
All Serenity Freeman has known is bloodshed. War has taken away her mother, her home, her safety. As the future emissary of the Western United Nations, the last autonomous region of the globe, she is responsible for forging alliances where she can.
Surrender is on the horizon. The king can taste it; Serenity feels it deep within her bones. There is no other option. Now the two must come face to face. For Serenity, that means confronting the man who’s taken everything from her. For the king, it means meeting the one woman he can’t conquer. But when they meet, something happens. Cruelty finds redemption.
Only in war, everything comes with a price. Especially love."
