it was amazing


An utterly original story! A delight to read. The story of a bee hive and a girl, in a word that is sealed off by blind ignorance. This is youth fiction at it’s best. The story is engaging and thrilling. It’s a Wonderful fantasy and adventure that starts your mind buzzing. Mielitta is a young women stifled by the world around, she has an adventurous spirit that will not allow her to conform. Italy turn down a path that she cannot get off of. In this story she has to find a way to open the mind of the people, while she discovers truths that hurt. This author is truly a word smith, with vivid descriptions and characters that draw you in.

4 Stars !!!!
One of the greatest joys in a readers life is finding new authors and new series.
In this book I have found both. This book was a nice breath of fresh air . I found the characters were very well presented and I felt as though I was there amongst them. The author draws you right into the book. I didn’t want to put the book down
I found myself relating to Mielitta the way she felt like a freak. I found the authors style to really draw me into the book more I like how it wasn’t predictable. I found it quite well written and the author draws out the intrigue around Mielitta just enough to keep you at the edge of your seat. I like how she was actually special and that she doesn’t have to fight the citadel alone . I will definitely be reading more from this author and series in the future.

5 out of 5 stars

The story Queen of the Warrior Bees (Natural Forces Book 1) by Jean Gill is what I would consider a YA/fantasy book. It is a story that I found myself captivated by both the storyline and the characters. It drew me in from the very beginning and didn’t let me go until I had finished the final page. I loved reading about the character of Mielitta. She is a young girl who finds herself in the forbidden Forest where her scent angers thousands of bees. She survives the attack, however, has changed. Mielitta is someone that I found others look down on. She doesn’t seem to have a place in the Citadel where she lives. I grew to care about Mielitta with each chapter that I read. She is also a character that doesn’t dismiss when new experiences happen to her. She tries to understand them. There is a rift that is widening between The Forest and The Citadel. What does the future hold? What does the future hold for Mielitta? Read this book to find out. I have always been in awe of authors that write fantasy stories. They create new worlds with their own rules and guidelines. This book is a perfect example of why I love fantasy books. My hat off to the author for creating a tale that is not only fun to read but was thoughtful as well. I enjoyed reading about the additional characters. Some of them are complex and I wasn’t quite sure what their motives were. Others were very upfront as to their agenda. Don’t miss out reading an amazing story. Highly recommended.

This is an interesting book about a girl and bees. I was pulled in from the beginning and it held my attention until the last page. I enjoyed the character development as they are creative and supportive. Mielitta is a young girl who has been bullied and tries to find refuge in the forbidden forest. As she explores the forest, she comes across some bees. As they make her one of their own, this is where her journey begins. I didn’t regret picking this book up, I highly recommend reading it.

As the Mages of the Citadel fight amongst themselves and prepare for war against the Forest, Mielitta, a despised servant, has her own battle to face. Bastien and Jannlou, the boys who terrorised her as a child, have grown into their status as Mages and she cannot escape them forever.
In desperation, she flees to the forbidden Forest and its dangerous attractions. Her scent angers thousands of bees and, although she survives their attack, she has changed. A strange bee symbol glows on her thigh and her senses are altered. She learns that her connection with bees enables her to summon their aid and gives her the power to shift shape.
This new-found bond works both ways and the bees need Mielitta’s help as the rift widens between Forest and Citadel. Can one girl and a colony of bees reunite Man and Nature, or is the split irreversible?
Block Nature out and she’ll force a way in.
