    Wow what an amazing book. The Queen’s enemies are marching against her after her army was defeated. Outstanding story to keep your interest. Received a free copy and loved the book enough to review. Ready for more.

    "The Clay Queen" starts slowly, and in a way which seems atypical of other works in its genre. I have to say that I was not sure of what to expect, but I persisted because I had promised that I would write a review (in exchange for a free evaluation copy) when I was finished. I'm glad I continued reading, because, as the story progressed, I found myself increasingly drawn into what was happening, wondering what was going to happen next as each scene and chapter were completed.

I'm glad I continued reading, because, as the story progressed, I found myself increasingly drawn into what was happening, wondering what was going to happen next as each scene and chapter were completed. There were a few typographical errors along the way, but I've seen much the same in other ebooks from different sources. There were also some phrases I felt could have been written with more clarity and power. Nevertheless, I found my appreciation of what the author constructed to be increasing, and I was left wanting to know more when the story reached its conclusion. I was glad to see that this is only book one of a larger series, and I plan to read the next book, as well. This is not a story for everyone. There is action, and a love story with what is in play between Bridget, Jeremy, and Bede. However, their stories are as metaphysical as is the story of the Goddess Nouei and her mother, Ryna, and the connection is not immediately obvious, as the story moves about in time. Don't let these things prevent you from giving "The Clay Queen" a try. In the end, it's a story done well.

    Queen Nouei is trying to change her fate as a goddess disdained by rewriting history. But becoming a god is no easy task, and for Bridget Blade, it's pure torture. Bridget longs to be normal, to live a simple life with her husband. Follow their journey to see who will ultimately win. I have to say, I was a tad nervous about reading this book. It's not the type of story I'm generally drawn to, despite the gorgeous cover.

Then I began reading, and the story was so unusual I worried my fears were founded. But I found myself drawn into the tale, curious to see it unfold, to understand what was awakening, and what kept Bridget anchored even as she seemed destined to fly away. I sat the book down feeling like I'd read something profound and beautiful and moving. This book far from completes the tale, but that doesn't lessen the impact of what unfolds. Honestly, I know little about the literary genre, but if I had to venture a guess, I think this book would fit nicely there. If you're on the fence, I'd suggest you give it a try. You have nothing to lose and a wonderful world to gain.

    The Clay Queen explores the theme of duality in gods, worlds, species, and time. The author clearly devoted much thought to these concepts, so much so that roughly half the book speculates on the issues before the storyline focuses on individuals. We first meet Bridget, an unwitting goddess incarnate, and Jeremy, her husband, in Paris. Bridget possesses unsurpassed powers of physical recuperation. Her pursuit of hardship and pain irritates Jeremy, who spends a lot of his energy trying to keep her The Clay Queen explores the theme of duality in gods, worlds, species, and time. The author clearly devoted much thought to these concepts, so much so that roughly half the book speculates on the issues before the storyline focuses on individuals. We first meet Bridget, an unwitting goddess incarnate, and Jeremy, her husband, in Paris. Bridget possesses unsurpassed powers of physical recuperation. Her pursuit of hardship and pain irritates Jeremy, who spends a lot of his energy trying to keep her alive. While Bridget cares little for appearances, Jeremy tends toward vanity. The pair only reconcile when joined by Bede, Jeremy’s brother, whose personality intersects and balances them both. The trio plan to observe a recurring miracle. Instead of witnessing the celestial event, Bridget’s yearning to reconnect with her divine other half leads her into mortal peril, with death being only one of the dire possibilities. This is not a book for light readers, but if you enjoy pondering metaphysics and philosophy, you’ll find the depth you seek.

    4.7-Stars The Clay Queen was very different than anything I’ve ever read, and I loved it. This is not my “go-to” genre for pleasure, but I’m so glad I read it. Ono Ekeh has opened my eyes to knew things. I like the cover. It is simple and the woman is beautiful. Although it didn’t give me any sense of what the book would be about, I think it fits the story perfectly. The writing is well done and the story is well researched.

I find paranormal aspects in the story with Bridget’s abilities, and Jeremy is willing to do anything to save her. Lots of tense, on the edge moments that will keep you turning the page with a rich history sprinkled throughout the story. There were a couple of scenes I felt were a bit of a repeat, but it didn’t take away from my overall experience. I recommend this book to everyone who likes to read. Give it a shot, you will be pleasantly surprised.

    This is different from what I normally read, which isn't really a bad thing. I was a little confused in the beginning with all the talk of different world, but as things progressed I became interested. The story is told by Nouei, who is a God. She is trying to attract the love of her mother, Rayna. She has desired to remake herself into a whole new God, Bridget. Bridget is a bubbly woman whom everyone loves as soon as they meet her.

She is married and her husband loves, her best friend, Bede is her brother-in-law who also loves and is a priest. This book take about 2 religions (not teal ones). It's big part of the book. Bridget is a God, but she is special beyond that. I did enjoy the book. There no grammar or spelling errors that I noticed. I think there was opportunity for better world building, especially in the monestary. This book is worth the read, just for being different. It also has a depth and beauty to that I don't know how to put into words.

    This time skipping epic has a very complex and involved cast and storyline.

The prologue gives us the consequences and then the story jumps back millennia to tell the tale of Queen Nouie and the god Rayne. It’s deep, involved, complex and requires a lot of attention, which is well worth it. Deep in the caste that are marginalized, are the Tae, gentle, beloved, and full of the love of Queen Nouie, whose life and memories are a jumble of the present only. Her own queen, Thysia, to whom she gave the gift of divinity 6 thousand years ago, is at her side, as is Nouie’s consort Abvul Simasi, but her god Raynea, creator of life, will not answer her pleas to save them from annihilation and stop cycle of the rebirth of the world as it has always been. Nouie has a plan to route the annihilation, and to do so, she must lose, then find herself, Thysia, and Abdul, and attempt a path that can allow the earth to remain as it is and save her people. Divided into segments which move from the present to the past, through the millennia of Nouie’s life, this book requires careful attention and readers who love complex stories will find it a fascinating read. Deep in politics and religion, this epic kept me invested to the end.

    This is the start of an epic tale of gods, devotion and love. I loved the author’s voice, its clarity can be heard throughout the narrative. There is great world building and intriguing, diverse characters... however, be warned this is not a sprint but a marathon— the pace is slow and steady, allowing the characters and the original plot to develop, but at times it felt a little too sedate.

    This book was hard to read honestly - I can see that the idea would be for it to be some sort of sci-fi world but in all reality there was too much going on that ended up leaving you confused and saying “what?” But with no real desire to read it again to figure out if you missed something.

    Good book I enjoyed it well enough to find book two. The characters are hard to connect with. Hoping book two is better.

    It's perfect! I read "She Died In My Arms" first. I am glad that I did for I was able to glean some of the subtlety that would have been loss to me otherwise. About the story. Its simultaneously mythological and ontological. It's spans both the apocalypse and events before and after. The romantic relationships are both monogamous and polygamous. It's is LGBTQ friendly.
