Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents The Queen's Secret by Jessica Day George, read by Helen Keeley.

Best-selling author Jessica Day George continues her heartfelt fantasy series about a girl who can communicate with horses and a kingdom on the brink of collapse.  

Anthea knows the truth about horses. They’re not carriers of deadly disease like everyone in their kingdom thinks; they’re majestic creatures who share their thoughts and feelings with her through The Way. Anthea has convinced the king of this, but at a cost - he demands that horses and riders with The Way do his bidding. 

But when a deadly plague breaks out, the people believe that horses are the cause. As more fall ill, it's up to Anthea and her friends to transport medicine, all while keeping out of reach from Anthea's wicked mother. And when Anthea discovers a secret that could change the kingdom forever, she must risk everything to reveal the truth before it's too late.

Continuing the sweeping storytelling of The Rose Legacy, best-selling author Jessica Day George delights listeners - especially horse lovers - once again.

Critic Reviews

"George charges right into the story, and the pacing doesn't let up for one instant.... Fans of war stories, or anyone who wishes they can talk to animals, will want to get their hands on this." (Booklist)

Well-timed story

This middle story does not lose much of the intensity of the opening novel, but to be honest the whole series is more about relationships. And the books are short, short enough to be one novel. The timing of publication could not have been better even if Bloomsbury had planned our own pandemic. If Anthea does get an extension on her book contract, I hope she calms down (I've finished book 3) because I am not sure I can take much more. Keeley voices everyone quite well, but her presentation of Anthea's constant distress is annoying.
