A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens.

The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction—but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

  1. I’ve definitely heard of this one before. Looks like an interesting read for fantasy lovers, though I am not much into the monarchy sides of it. I love how you have your ‘new release Tuesdays’ and ‘fantasy Fridays’. Very creative idea 🙂

    • Thanks so much! It took me a few to really decide where I wanted to go with this blog topics wise. LOL I have a problem with changing my mind often 😅. I agree with you this one looks interesting and I want to get to it but 800 pgs is a commitment for me at the moment.

      • It’s my absolute pleasure! My blog started as a random arrangement of things but has no progressed into a bookish theme. I’m sticking to short books at the moment because I am a bit slumpy. I hope you get a chance to read it, anyhow! Good luck x
