REVIEW: The Crimson Queen by Alec Hutson

There’s a certain class of movies I like to refer to as “popcorn movies,” by which I mean they are just fun. You sit there shoveling popcorn into your mouth, wide-eyed and glued to the screen, totally sucked into the action and before you know it the credits are rolling and you’re scraping the bottom of the bucket wondering where the time and the popcorn all went. The Crimson Queen by Alec Hutson is very much the literary equivalent of a popcorn movie, and I mean that in the absolute best possible way.
