From the moment she took a job on Captain Caldswell's doomed ship, Devi Morris' life has been one disaster after another: government conspiracies, two alien races out for her blood, an incurable virus that's eating her alive.
Now, with the captain missing and everyone -- even her own government -- determined to hunt her down, things are going from bad to impossible. The sensible plan would be to hide and wait for things to blow over, but Devi's never been one to shy from a fight, and she's getting mighty sick of running.
It's time to put this crisis on her terms and do what she knows is right. But with all human life hanging on her actions, the price of taking a stand might be more than she can pay.


my thoughtsI don’t know why I ever doubted that Rachel Bach could top Honors Knight. I really should know better and if there were such a thing as a six star rating, Heavens Queen would certainly have earned it. Devi Morrison is as amazing as ever and now that most of the secrets have been come to light, she’s tasked with figuring out how to save their universe from Phantoms, save Maat and her daughters, and keep herself from becoming a guinea pig for the Eyes. She also needs to sort out her love life and handle all of this before the virus inside of her takes her life because time is going to run out. She’s running out of people to trust and those who may have the answers to her questions, may be the most dangerous ones to turn to.

I was enthralled from start to finish. Watching Devi grow as a person throughout this series has been a terrific experience. I never knew how much I’d love an often reckless mercenary with a smart mouth and a thick head. There were so many times when I wanted to yell at her to just trust Rupert, to let him in. And Anthony, you idiot, how could you not see how strong Devi is, how she doesn’t need to be coddled. Rupert’s understanding of this is what makes him perfect for her. Their relationship truly made this book for me and when I reached the final page, I was not ready for things to end. Heavens Queen came to a beautiful end with everything coming together but I still want more. This is a series you will never be able to get enough of and I am looking forward to reading and re-reading all three books in the series as I follow Devi on her truly epic adventure over and over again. Trust me when I say, this one takes the cake. An absolute must read.

about the author

Rachel Bach grew up wanting to be an author and a super villain. Unfortunately, super villainy proved surprisingly difficult to break into, so she stuck to writing and everything worked out great. She currently lives in Athens, GA with her perpetual energy toddler, extremely understanding husband, overflowing library, and obese wiener dog.

Rachel also writes fantasy under the name Rachel Aaron. Learn more about her first series, The Legend of Eli Monpress, and read sample chapters for yourself at!
