Queen Takes Checkmate by Joely Sue Burkhart

In one of the Facebook groups I’m in, someone recommended Queen Takes Knights and the rest of the series. After finishing Queen Takes Rook, I continued the series with Queen Takes Checkmate. Only one more after this one!

A quote from Queen Takes Checkmate by Joely Sue Burkhart

Shara Isador has claimed her knights, her king, and her sib queens. She took down Keisha Skye and had to take over the House of Skye. But as she was given a gift from Coatlicue, Shara had to use it to take down Ra.

After coming up with a plan to get her close to Ra, she works with Huitzilopochtli (Mayte’s father) to achieve their goal of killing Ra.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Queen Takes Checkmate, Shara worries about which of her Blood will be the one taken in response to the gift. She knows she must take down Ra, but doesn’t want to lose any of her Blood.
