Queen Talyien, or Tali, has finally arrived back in Oren-yaro, but is treated more as a criminal than a leader. Her former best friend and lover, Agos, is dead; her husband, Rayyel, is still distant and doubtful of their son’s parentage; the warlords are all against her; and Prince Yuebek still pursues her hand and threatens war. Tali also faces the spreading darkness in Jin-Sayeng, one caused by her father and the secrets he kept through his life. A woman who has been determined to get out from under her father’s shadow, Tali realizes that her path may have already been created by him. The only way to save her son and her nation may be to bend to the will of everyone but herself. Villoso has built an intricate world of politics and people, filled with honest, sometimes chaotic relationships and bad decisions that hook readers throughout.
VERDICT The stunning conclusion of the “Chronicles of the Bitch Queen” series (after The Ikessar Falcon) is filled with high-stakes action, emotions, and magic, with an ending that will not disappoint.
