Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In the city of Seriden, the thief called Coin is Nameless -- she has no family, no legal rights, and no standing in society -- but she inherits the throne and the power and danger that come with it.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 November #1
    Seridan custom dictates that the person whose name is whispered by the current ruler just before his death follows him on the throne and is notified by a crown tattoo that magically appears on his or her arm. When the tell-tale sign appears on Coin's arm, she's mystified and alarmed. How can a queen come from the "nameless," a class so low that they aren't even allowed names other than the ones they give themselves? The complacent Royal Council wonders the same thing, and Coin has six weeks to learn to be a queen to her people—if she lives that long. Etiquette, fighting skills, and learning whom to trust top the survival list for this feisty heroine. Most of the action occurs within the palace walls as the plot is propelled by her need to unravel the paradox of being named queen while being nameless. Some humor helps leaven this identity crisis, which also reflects how someone else's reality can dictate your own. A solid debut with an ending twist sure to please fantasy readers. Grades 8-11.

Author Notes

Rebecca McLaughlin is a Michigan nerd who appreciates sweet coffee, kindness, and the scientific method. She got her degrees in chemistry and English creative writing in 2014. Since that time, she's worked as a technical writer in Michigan. When not working or crafting stories, Rebecca can be found practicing her knife-throwing skills or seeking out the perfect cup of coffee. She wrote Nameless Queen because she grew up lower class (which sucked), went to a private college (which was weird), and made good friends along the way (which was wonderful). She realized that exploring the social and economic divide is difficult, but magic makes it easier--or at least more entertaining.
