I enjoyed this installment, however, I do hope Queen Divas will be the last installment. The author has done an excellent job of stretching a story that could have been wrapped up in 2 or 3 books. Books 3-5 were the same with a few twists thrown into mix them up. However with Ms. Diamond's gift for spinning a tale, you may not realize it. I have listened to all the books in the series via Audible, which brings the books to life in an entirely different way than reading them. Okay enough of that.....
Teshara-I often had to remind myself that she was only 17. So her childish, irrational antics and thought process in this addition made some sense or were at the very least bearable. Although, she was not completely removed from the streets. She was not sheltered in a glass house. So her reaction to the situation with her boyfriend & Lucifer was over the top. I get it loyalty was in question and she's a child so she was not able manage her emotions. She was never taught. Her immaturity was never more evident in how she handled herself in this situation. I'm praying in the next book, she is not surprised if her boyfriend that she has pushed away finds himself another woman. Wishful thinking I know.
One positive I did find the little nugget of how "Abdul"-the white foster father- met his end. I hope her dark side is explored without showing her go completely off the rails in away that the character cannot return and she ends up as a Lashelle Jr. with no redeemable qualities.
Lashelle- I can't say that I'm upset about her storyline. She was all about tooting her own horn/self-loathing, claiming the "throne" , her constantly throbbing clit and her backdoor being turned into a crime scene. If I never hear of any of those three things again, I will be happy. Sorry Not much else stands out about this broken character.
Lucifer- definitely a "boss" diva. calculating, pro-active and a business woman. I enjoyed watching her deal with the fact that she's in fact a woman.
Cleo/Shareefa/Hydaeh/Quianna- bit players in a big game, but necessary to move the story along.
The men in the series have my sympathies. I'm hoping 1 or all of them get a HEA
