#4 on The Fantasy Inn's Best Reads of 2017 A mass murderer's daughter, abandoned wife, and Queen of a divided land: the perfect catalyst for war. "I murdered a man and made my husband leave the night before they crowned me." Born under the crumbling towers of Oren-yaro, Queen Talyien's life unfolded like a storybook. The shining jewel and legacy of the bloody War of the Wolves that nearly tore her nation apart, her marriage to Rayyel, the son of her father's rival, spoke of peaceful days to come. But all storybooks must end. Rayyel's sudden departure before their reign began created fractures that left the land as divided as ever. Years later, Talyien receives a message from Rayyel, urging her to meet with him across the sea. An assassination attempt interrupts Talyien's quest for reconciliation, sending the queen struggling in a strange and dangerous land. With betrayals in every twist and turn, she is forced to enlist the help of a con-artist to survive and save her husband from the clutches of those who would seek to use him for their gain...if he would let her. Following in the footsteps of Robin Hobb and Guy Gavriel Kay comes another character-driven, emotional epic fantasy from the author of The Agartes Epilogues. Get it now.
