Queen Takes Checkmate: Their Vampire Queen Series, Book 5 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The god of light has met his match. But whose life will the red serpent claim?
Killing the queen of New York City has added a million new responsibilities to Shara Isador's list. The former queen's Blood must be dealt with before they turn thrall. The queens Keisha Skye coerced into sibling relationships must either be formally sworn to House Isador or freed. Though Shara can't in good conscience allow anyone into her house who took part in the rampant torture in which House Skye indulged.
While every single day, Shara feels the weight of the red serpent coiled around her throat. The goddess' gift grows heavier with every passing moment. If she doesn't act, the serpent will consume everything she loves. But if she goes after Ra as promised, someone she loves very much will die.
Any of her Blood will gladly pay that cost, but Shara loves them too much to even consider losing one of them.
Who will survive the epic showdown with Ra, the god of light, and will this be the end of Shara Isador's story?

I love the alternating POVs, and how we get to know more about all of the characters in each book - they all continue to develop and grow, showing us new sides of themselves.
The storyline in this book focuses on Shara's battle with Ra, and what a showdown it is! With new players, Shara has to be careful with who she decides to trust. Her Blood keep close and turn extremely protective in an effort to keep her safe, and new dynamics arise in the group as well.
I honestly can't get enough of this series, and could happily read it over and over again. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book, and also to the chapters/novellas that will appear in the Between the Sheets and other anthologies.
A series I would definitely recommend!
This series was unlike anything I have ever read. I devoured it and hunger for more.
I hope Burkhart writes more in this world, I will be reading all her work from now on.
There were tears, public yelling at my phone and I tore through this book like I my life depended on it.
I have so much love for Shara and her Blood and was thrilled to dive back into her world. This is a lot longer than previous books but fast paced in a good way. Character development and a couple of deliciously steamy scenes were a great reprieve from this monster plot.
I devoured the show down despite being in tears (that moment at 85% broke me) and was thrilled with the ending.
Highly recommend. Phenomenal. Dying for more from this incredible author.

The characters are well developed, endearing with a completely unique story and lore.
This is the series that stopped me from thinking that Reverse Harems were unappealing. This is the series that got me hooked on it!
The Power, and that’s just to name a few.
Plus the sex is HAWT.
It took a while to get truly captivated by the story, but the final 150 pages did the trick. I was thinking “3 stars” until the last pages, so it did help on my final rating.
It just such a creative and strangely complex story, and I simply love the fact that vampires can shapeshift.
That gods are the enemies. That light is not always good.
Found this story so refreshing in that aspect.
