LoveReading View on The Queen at War

February 2013 Book of the Month  An ebullient and action packed sequel to The Queen Must Die, this sweeps twenty-first century Katie away from her complicated life in New York for a second time. Katie’s time travelling journey takes her back in time to 1844 London, a world she has visited previously, where her friend Grace is seriously ill.  Katie brings with her over 150 years more information including some medical knowledge which may be invaluable in saving her friend and also makes her a potential saviour of the lives of the soldiers dying in the Crimea War. Soon Katie is off to the front where she meets the great Florence Nightingale and  Mary Seacole. But Katie has an even more important person to keep safe; there are dark forces at work and she must do everything she can to protect Queen Victoria herself. K.A. Quinn skilfully weaves real history and a fantastically inventive supernatural world together into a glorious adventure.
