Queen of the Warrior Bees by Jean Gill is book 1 in the natural forces series. This is the first book I have read by this author and It was one of my favorite new reads this year. The writing was so descriptive and the book sucked me in from page 1. The character development and the uniqueness of this story was so great! I really enjoyed the entire book and read it in one sitting. This is definitely a book that I cannot wait to read the next and will definitely read anything this author writes in the future. Great read! I give this book a solid 5 starts. Can’t wait to see what this author does next.

Right off the bat there were so many things that intrigued me about this book. I absolutely adore bees so just reading the words warrior bees made me think “I need this book right now”. And I was not disappointed. Mielitta was found as baby and she believes that for this reason, she is kept as a servant and a child while all her peers are now considered adults. Most of her school friends also seem to have forgotten her somewhat. Is this some sort of magic or are they just all just huge jerks?
The Forest is forbidden and most people don’t question why. Mielitta can’t help but be curious when everyone else is content and I love her for that. How she experiences the world around her is extremely intriguing. Food and drink only taste of salt but her sense of smell has like 4 layers to it. She can assign colors to different scents as well as descriptive words she has only read but knows instinctively are accurate. Everything about this girl fascinating and had me tearing through this book for answers, especially after reading about the Councillors. They immediately seemed sketchy and their abilities made me distrust basically every word they said. They all seemed out for themselves no matter how much they said they were loyal to the Citadel.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book!

Queen of the Warrior Bees (Natural Forces Book 1) by Jean Gill. I don’t normally like these types of books but this book is Amazing! I read through it as fast as I could. Its the story of 18 year old Mielitta who knows she’s different but doesn’t understand why. The Citadel where she lives is getting ready to to go to War with the Forest. She has been bullied her whole life by 2 boys in the Citadel named Bastien & Jannlou and as they get older it gets worse and more dangerous.

She finds out this empowers her to shape shift and summon the bees to help her and they can call her as well. Will Mielitta work with the bees as the battle between the Citadel and Forest to try and reunite them or will they fail? Read Queen of Bees to find out!

Queen of the Warrior Bees by Jean Gill is a one of a kind original. The cover of the book caught my attention and I started reading and I was not disappointed. Jean Gill is a master storyteller. Once I started reading I could not put it down. Mielitta is a strong female character who finds herself in a bee swarm. The bees make her their own. Mielitta and the bees become one and that is when the story took off. The journey that Mielitta takes is one that she needs to make. What will Mielitta’s journey do for her? Will she stand up to those who would like to bully her around? I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.

I took a step out of my comfort zone when I decided to give this book a read and overall I enjoyed it. It did take me a little time to get into and there were times when I wasn’t completely sure it was the book for me but I persevered and I’m glad I did. I think there is definitely more to the book than the blurb leads you to believe, the author’s detailed writing was good (however a little too much at times) and the story did have a good pace and flow to it. One of the things I did like about the book was how original and unpredictable it was and I certainly had to think about what I was reading to find the deeper meaning. The main character wasn’t quite what I was expecting and it took me a while to understand her however as the story went on I began to see the direction the author was trying to take her in.
Overall an interesting read and would definitely recommend it to readers who are looking for something a little different to try out.

Queen of the Warrior Bees (Natural Forces #1) by Jean Gill is a YA fantasy story that is also much more. Jean’s writing is very descriptive and detailed that you can imagine the scenes she has set. The story is unique and will certainly keep you entertained.

Mielitta has been rejected and tormented, victimised and despised but through all this she has become a warrior and is fighting for survival. One bite and she becomes something more, something that takes her from being and outcast and despised and showing those who thought her week, that she was no more.

This book is an adventure from start to end with twists and turns all the way through.

Mielitta is an orphan and an outcast in the perfect world. This world is man made and doesnt have any access to nature, or the Forest. Everyone lives in this bubble. Until one day Mielitta decides to venture into the Forest and gets attacked by bees.

So starts the journey and the relationship between Mielitta and her bees. They join forces to save the bees hive and when the time comes the bees repay the favour by helping Mielitta defeat the evil presence who rules Citadel.

This is quite the story. A whole new world full of rules, Magic and political intrigue. The story drew me in and only got more interesting as we learned more about the Citadel and the Forest. The author did a wonderful job with her descriptive paragraphs Letting the reader follow along on the journey. The characters really have quite the life going. Some of the stuff that goes on behind these walls is crazy. The bees….well I kind of feel they are the stars. I loved reading about their life and though process and such. Not doubting everything that Mielitta went through and I did love her connection to the other three characters we got to read about.

This is a first time author for me. This is a good teen magical story. Imaginative and full of adventure!
Oh Hey….Did you see that wonderful cover! Perfectly fits the story!
