Review: Tiffany Reisz's "The Queen (The Original Sinners: The White Years #4)."


Synopsis:

Once upon a time, Nora and Søren made a fateful deal—if he gave her everything, she would give him forever. 

The time has finally come to keep their promises. 

Out of money and out of options after her year-long exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, the most feared Dominatrix in the Underground. 

While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, her only love and the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice—will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go, or trade in her crown for Søren's collar? 

With a shattering final confession, the last link in the chain is forged in The Original Sinners saga. It's the closing chapter in a story of salvation, sacrifice and the multitude of scars we collect in the name of ecstasy—and love.

Review-Jo 

"We made a deal, remember? You gave me forever and you would give me everything. 
I fully intend to hold up my end of the deal, no matter what it costs me." 

My journey with this amazing series began three years ago with "Little Red Riding Crop" and it wasn't long before my girl crush for Nora Sutherlin developed. She is one of the most fantastic characters in the book world and without a doubt the best female heroine. I have loved every single one of Tiffany Reisz's books from this series and I have taken all of the brilliant characters into my heart, so as you can imagine, this final book was always going to be an emotional one for me. My journey with "The Original Sinners" was one that I never wanted to end.

If she and Søren loving each other and staying together despite 
all they'd been through, all they'd put each other through for twenty three 
years, wasn't a miracle, she didn't know what was.

I have had "The Queen" on my kindle for some time now, but I have been reluctant to read it as I did not want to say goodbye to my favourite characters. Once I did start to read it, I wanted it to last forever. This was not a book that I wanted to devour in one sitting so I stretched it out for as long as possible. Sadly, the ending did arrive and when it did, I was left feeling bereft, just like I had lost a friend. I felt so sad and I am still feeling that way now. This series has affected me that much. I still cannot believe that I will never read another book from this series. The book world will be a poorer place without the Original Sinners gang. 

"What would I ever do without my little one?"

"I promise, you won't ever have to find out."

In this final book, Tiffany Reisz once again transported me back, this time to the point in which Eleanor became Nora, which was where my love of this series began. I discovered what events led up to the moment when Nora became the hottest and most sort after Dominatrix on the block. Not only did it enlighten me to Eleanor's transformation but also how Søren and Kinglsey played their parts in this part of the story. I absolutely loved getting the opportunity to further explore the special relationship between Nora, Søren and Kingsley. What I was most surprised about was how much I uncovered about Søren. It was a total shock for me to learn how vulnerable he truly was. Nora had made a huge impact in his world and it broke my heart to discover how much he was hurting during the time that they were apart. 

"If it meant your happiness, Eleanor, if it meant bringing 
you home to me, I'd sell my own soul." 

I loved how Tiffany Reisz has brought me full circle with this series, with no gaps or stones left unturned. I have been given the chance to delve into every single occasion throughout the story. The series has flowed so beautifully from one book to the next, taking me on a journey filled with love, loyalty and friendship. I adore this author for bringing such memorable and entertaining characters into my life. I can't wait to see what is coming next from Tiffany Reisz. If you have not yet started this fantastic five hearts series, I beg you to start today. I'm only envious that I cannot start my journey all over again. Maybe it's time for a re-read! 

"Eleanor, I will never truly be gone from you. I will never leave you or forsake you". 
"Where you go I will go. You're God will be my God."
"Where you die, there I will be buried." 
"And we will have each other forever. In this life and the next."
"Promise?" 
"Anything for you, Little One, everything for you." 

"The Queen" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️   from me.
