Cheri Chesley grew up in Phoenix, Arizona with her mother and four older brothers. She discovered her love of writing at a young age, but didn’t consider it as a career choice until high school. Writing a novel in a year and ten months can do that to a person.
In 2006, Cheri rediscovered her passion for writing and decided to start taking herself and her constantly speaking characters seriously. She enjoys the continued support of her husband and family, including extended family, across the nation. And she could never have gotten this far without a little help from her friends, too.

Krystal and Jareth have overcome the legacy of his Uncle Gregory. They’ve started a family of their own and are about see wed Jareth’s sister, Alana, to one of his most trusted friends, Alexander. The wedding is mere hours away, and Krystal is still reeling form the death of her mother and news concerning the death of yet another close family member, when the mysterious Donovan, long lost son of Gregory, turns up at their door. At first it is not known what young Donovan wants from his cousins and former wife of his father, but all too soon it becomes clear and the royal family once more find themselves under threat.
This exciting sequel to The Peasant Queen is just as action packed at the first book. Motherhood has done little to slow Krystal down or tame her courageous heart, which is a good thing. Gregory’s crimes are pale in comparison to those of his son. Krystal, her family, and her friends will need all the strength and magical powers they can muster just to survive.
I must here pause to give a similar ‘warning’ to parents as I did in my review of the first book, The Peasant Queen. Though not depicted or described in detail the subject of rape and pregnancy as a result of rape is a key element of this book’s storyline. I mention this only because some the youngest young adults might find this subject matter troubling.
Moving away from that, this book is a very quick and fun read and I look forward the future books in this series...and the introduction of even more long lost royal family members.

The Tyrant King by Cheri Chesley is an excellent, highly-exciting read. The writing draws you in right from the beginning and keeps you turning pages to the end. The characters are fully realized (I must admit I think I fell a little in love with Krystal), the action is breathtaking, and the magic is magical. It's also a gorgeous-looking book; the editing and formatting is superb. I recommend this novel to readers of all genres, and can't wait to read more from this author in the future.
