Are you not entertained?! Arenas, whether as grand and mind-blowing as those in The Hunger Games or as timelessly classic as The Valiant‘s, are a tried and true way to bring the best out of YA confrontations. And one of our recent favorites to feature them, Tiger Queen, adds an extra element to the fight for survival.
The lush fantasy tale follows Princess Kateri as she faces off against suitors (!!!) in an arena in order to win her right to rule. Despite her royal upbringing, she’s a force with a sword. Now, it’s time for you to find out what weapon you’d fight with!
What Weapon Would You Fight With?
About Tiger Queen
In the mythical desert kingdom of Achra, an ancient law forces sixteen-year-old Princess Kateri to fight in the arena to prove her right to rule.
For Kateri, winning also means fulfilling a promise to her late mother that she would protect her people, who are struggling through windstorms and drought. The situation is worsened by the gang of Desert Boys that frequently raids the city wells, forcing the king to ration what little water is left. The punishment for stealing water is a choice between two doors: behind one lies freedom, and behind the other is a tiger.
But when Kateri’s final opponent is announced, she knows she cannot win. In desperation, she turns to the desert and the one person she never thought she’d side with. What Kateri discovers twists her world—and her heart—upside down. Her future is now behind two doors—only she’s not sure which holds the key to keeping her kingdom and which releases the tiger.
