And Peach is back to normal, thank goodness! Omigosh, what happened? I can't believe Peach got possessed!
Now she's The demon that destroyed this town 1, years ago. Max HP is , Attack is 7, and Defense is 0. She'll unleash big lightning attacks.
She'll also use magic to raise Attack and Defense, or to absorb HP She might even try to drag us into the darkness Don't think of it as Peach!
We just have to fight to the end! Shadow Queen 2. That's the Shadow Queen! Wow, she's scary Max HP is , Attack is 7, and Defense is 1.
She'll use lightning magic and boost her own Attack and Defense power. And, if she uses her breath on us, we could be poisoned, confused, or lose power-ups!
We'd do best to just avoid it by hiding in the shadows with Vivian, I think. Boy, and not only is her body scary, but her hands are pretty mean, as well.
She has several attack patterns, so watch closely to see what's coming! Also do the characters in this realm have multiple-personalities because that's what it felt like.
One second you would know what a character was like, then it would change I don't know what to think of this book.
One second you would know what a character was like, then it would change and keep changing. Especially with Dieter. That drove me nuts. There is a sequel but I'm not interested Dec 20, Jess rated it liked it.
I found Shadow Queen quite fast-paced and refreshing to read. I think the author achieved a good balance of detail for the readers to visualise the storys setting and characters without over doing it like many other books in the same genre.
The protagonist, Matilde, is a very believable character and I found myself empathising with all that she endured. I recommend Shadow Queen to anyone who is after a quick and easy read, filled with a good combination of action, suspense, politics and magic.
Readers would find it hard to put down this novel — especially in the last half of the book. Looking forward to the rest of the series!
Jul 15, Lola rated it it was ok. I really liked the beginning of the book, and I was enchanted with Matilde, cause she was so strong and determined and then something happened that she turned submissive and kind of weak and, the whole story lost the fast pace and just lost my attention.
Maybe it was because despite the bunch of characters the only one that seems to develop through the story is her, leaving the other like merely incidental ones.
Despide that, story is not that bad, in fact it is really interesting, but I felt I really liked the beginning of the book, and I was enchanted with Matilde, cause she was so strong and determined and then something happened that she turned submissive and kind of weak and, the whole story lost the fast pace and just lost my attention.
Despide that, story is not that bad, in fact it is really interesting, but I felt like is kind of dificult to follow at parts specially cause there are lots of names and places.
To sum up, it was a nice reading, but nothing I'm really looking forward to continue. Dec 20, Rafe rated it did not like it.
One of the worst books I've ever attempted to read. I rarely stop reading a book just because it's terrible, I have to finish things. It hits you in the face with a ridiculous turn of personality in the protagonist.
It's as if the main character has stockholm syndrome, and it just gets worse from there. The worst thing, I feel, is that the beginning of the novel lulls you like a siren's song.
It is intriguing, addictive, and you don't want to One of the worst books I've ever attempted to read. It is intriguing, addictive, and you don't want to put it down.
And then Simply put, don't waste your time. Oct 23, Ballerinble rated it it was ok. I found this book quite hard to get into. Firstly, there were several names and terms in the book that needed greater description.
Secondly, though Matilde is a strong and at times engaging character, I feel that her magical abilities were an after thought. She needed to be developed more in this way.
Lastly, the story got more interesting about half way through the book. That is why I finished it. May 17, Jet Silver rated it liked it Shelves: female-author , fantasy , , fiction.
I'm not sure what I thought of this. The main character had an original and compelling voice, but on the other hand, all of the characters behaved erractically.
I couldn't work out anyone's goals or motivations, and that made for an unsatisfying read. I didn't feel I knew who any of these people were by the end of the book, which makes it rather difficult to care what happens to them.
Feb 13, Jessica Smith rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Fantasy lovers, people seeking believeable main characters.
Shelves: books-worth-your-time , kick-ass-heroines. Loved this book. I think this is the first time I've read about a strong woman, a truly believable character who possesses flaws , and overcomes them despite everything.
Characters like Matilde have become far too rare. Matilde, heir to the House of Svanaten, is nineteen, of age and more than ready to take her place on the throne but her regent grandmother is unwilling to hand over the reins.
But it is not as simple as a desire for power. Matilde has visions of the future and her grandmother's skill at hiding this is all that keeps her granddaughter from being claimed by the church and losing her throne forever.
When her long estranged aunt arrives with her young son for a festival, Matilde is delighted until a Matilde, heir to the House of Svanaten, is nineteen, of age and more than ready to take her place on the throne but her regent grandmother is unwilling to hand over the reins.
When her long estranged aunt arrives with her young son for a festival, Matilde is delighted until a moment of prescience comes too late and she loses family, friends and throne in one horrific attack.
Alone, desperate to survive and eventually regain her throne, she agrees to be bound in marriage to the man who has wiped out her family.
Her new husband, though, wants more than a wife and uses magic to secure her loyalty. Matilde finds herself despised by those she cares about as she struggles to subtly undermine her conqueror.
Shadow Queen is in many ways a coming of age story. Tilde may be restlessly wanting her throne at the beginning of the novel but she is also immature and naive and her prescience is potentially dangerous to both her and her throne.
When her whole world is destroyed she is forced to grow up fast and, although she makes mistakes - and there are many of them - she learns quickly that he new husband's ruthlessness must be matched by her own.
The author keeps a tight grip on a complex story of politics and psychological manipulation that reveals itself slowly as Tilde learns more about herself, her family and her kingdom and its enemies.
The characters are well-drawn with a blend of strengths and weaknesses and, often, surprising sides to them. As it should be, no-one is perfect in this world where betrayal is commonplace.
After the attack, the city crumbled and sank into the earth. One third of the city was reconstructed to be the Palace of Shadow where the entrance would be the 1,Year Door itself, the death trap of evil.
The demonic Queen next set her sights on the rest of the world, hoping to plunge it into an endless time of darkness under her control.
She created numerous demonic beasts and spirits to make the core of her army. Among them were the three Shadow Sirens who would be the most trusted followers of the queen.
With her new army, the Shadow Queen set them on the surrounding areas of the world. The demons wiped out all resistance as they took the lands by force, killing millions of people in the process.
Towns were destroyed and their treasures were stolen to be stored within the palace, soon to become rich with valuables. The Shadow Queen was far from finished though and created three dragons, Hooktail , Gloomtail , and Bonetail.
These dragons became the loyal pets of the queen and quickly spread fear and suffering throughout the world, feasting on numerous people, destroying towns and leaving them to burn, and killing anyone.
The queen and her army quickly became feared above all else and the mere mention of their name sent people into a fearful state of panic.
As more areas fell to the Shadow Queen, she next created the Crystal Stars. These stars were placed in separate areas around the world to exert the queen's influence.
Realizing that her opposition were still recruiting others, the queen created a dungeon called the Pit of Trials. The place was a torture chamber where people were devoured by demonic beasts and Bonetail.
This very pit is found right next to The Thousand-Year Door, where there are literally floors. Just when all hope seemed lost, four brave warriors stepped forward to end the reign of the demon once and for all or so they thought.
The Toad from Petalburg came to be seen as a hero when he defended his town from the Queen's evil forces. The wise Goomba was a resident of the Boggly Woods and used his vast set of knowledge to aid the Punis in defending themselves against the monsters.
The scarred Koopa went around the world battling evil. He became feared among the dark army, but eventually, a trap was set for him and he soon fell into it.
The Boo warrior of the army then left her demonic allegiance and helped the Koopa. The Boo then used her powers to predict that they would need the aid of the Toad, and the wise Goomba in order to have a fighting chance against the Shadow Queen.
There they faced the demon in an epic battle. After an intense fight, the heroes defeated the queen after achieving to destroy her physical body.
Even then though, the queen's demonic spirit lived on and attempted to kill the warriors. The heroes made one last effort and sealed the queen in her own palace, thus ridding the world of one of the most evilest of evils.
Before the seal was complete though, the queen sent a portion of her magic into the heroes. The effects would not be felt while they held the stars, but afterward, the heroes would become trapped within black chests.
The queen vowed to return one day and will conquer the world when that day dawns. The heroes then realized that the demon's threats may not just be a bluff.
They sealed the Palace entrance with the stars and the seal would remain for 1, years, the entrance to the palace would then go on to be known as The Thousand-Year Door.
Realizing that others may need the stars in case the queen returns, they made a map of the stars in case the future heroes would need them.
To ensure that the map only fell into pure hands, they placed it in a chest that could only be opened by one pure of heart. While the war finally seemed to be over, there were other plans in effect to ensure that the demon would return to the world.
The Shadow Sirens began to spread rumors of a great treasure hidden in the earth beneath the location of the old city. People then constructed a town over the city, which soon became filled with thugs and robbers, hoping to claim the treasure for themselves.
None of them knew that the treasure was actually a demon and that the rumor of the treasure was nothing more than a ruse in part of an insidious plot to send the world into complete darkness again.
The seal on the palace door began to fade and the Shadow Queens servants, the Shadow Sirens knew the time to release their queen would soon come.
The Shadow Sirens joined the cult of the X-Nauts. The X-Nauts were a criminal organization of unknown origin and existed to conquer the world.
Grodus who hoped to rule the world thought by releasing the Shadow Queen would be able to control her and use her to fulfill his dream.
This was all a lie a by Beldam though just to get Grodus to help so as to free her because evil like Beldam could not touch the seal that was on the queen.
With the X-Nauts playing into her hands, Beldam came into possession of the chest that contained the Magic Map. She gave it to Grodus and told him that it could be the ideal way of finding a pure maiden.
Beldam knew that if the queen were to return to full power, a vessel would be needed. The vessel needed to be one of pure origin though and seeing how the chest could be opened by someone as such, it was the perfect way to find the maiden.
Grodus liked the plan and had Beldam disguise herself as a merchant selling various items they looted while looking for people to open the chest.
Eventually, Beldam found the right person to open it who turned out to be Princess Peach of the Mushroom Kingdom. Beldam found the maiden, but was unable to abduct her then because of too many witnesses.
Peach in the meantime mailed the map to Mario to aid in searching for the treasure. As a result, Grodus sent his army to abduct the princess and search for the map.
With the seal on the Thousand-Year Door weakening and Grodus' intelligence at Beldam's side, the queen's resurrection seemed assured.
Attempting to collect the stars the X-Nauts were foiled at every turn by the hero Mario and his friends. Eventually, Mario after defeating Grodus' second-in-command Lord Crump and completely obliterating the X-Naut base, managed to claim the last Crystal Star.
In the meantime, Beldam abducted Professor Frankly, a goomba that had a lot of knowledge and helped Mario find the locations of Crystal Stars, and had him locked in a secluded area and Grodus had Doopliss, a ghost that can transform into many shapes, disguise himself as the aged professor.
In this guise, he was able to convince Mario to open the door and allow entry for Grodus. Mario did and went after Grodus who along with a kidnapped Princess Peach had entered the Palace of Shadow shortly after Mario cracked the seal on it with the Crystal Stars.
Eventually, after making his way through the palace traps Mario encountered and battled Grodus. When Grodus was defeated he chose not to accept it and used the Princess as a hostage, it was only with the intervention of Bowser was Peach saved from harm.
Unfortunately, Bowser engaged Mario and his friends in battle along with his assistant Kammy Koopa, this distracted Mario and company long enough for Grodus to escape with Peach to the Queen's chamber.
After Mario defeated Bowser and Kammy he went after Grodus and cornered him in the chamber, there it was revealed why Grodus needed the Princess.
