Slave Queen Book Review

About Slave Queen by H.B. Moore

Special Agent Omar Zagouri’s latest case is his most dangerous—and his most personal yet. The discovery of secret sixteenth-century letters unveils a plot between the sultan Suleyman and his chief wife, Roxelane, to change the course of the Ottoman Empire. A descendent of Roxelane, Zagouri learns he has an enemy whose revenge has been centuries in the making.

Targeted by an antiquities collector who’s also descended from a chief rival for the ancient throne, Zagouri soon uncovers a modern-day conspiracy that threatens the lives of his family and the security of a nation.

To expose the plot, Zagouri must team up with Naim, the son of his nemesis, who heads an international black-market operation that may have ties to the killings. From ancient Constantinople to the present-day Middle East, Zagouri is on a collision course with history. Time is running out to solve a royal mystery and stop a ruthless killer—one who has Zagouri’s name on his hit list.

My Review of Slave Queen

I was really excited to read this book. I have read many of H.B. Moors other books and this series is really one of my favorites! Omar is a complicated person and it makes for a fun character. I’m also a huge history person so throwing in history is something that makes a story even more interesting to me.

These books including Slave Queen take place in an area I haven’t learned much about, but one I want to. I have little knowledge of the Ottoman Empire, but after reading this book. I have found I want to learn more about this sultan and his wife Roxelane.

The story itself is a wonderful ride of twist and turns, it also has returning characters who you learn a little more about and who start to surprise you with how they act. I really did not see the end coming!

As you know if you read my reviews, I don’t give anything away, I hate when people do that so If you want to know how Omar and Naim’s new partnership works out you will just have to read the book!
