Queen Talyien has barely escaped with her life, but now is on the run back to Jin-Sayeng to catch up with her husband, Prince Rayyel, who plans to kill her son if he is the result of her affair and not of their marriage. Chased by the past machinations of her father, Warlord Yeshin, the deaths of her unknown brothers, and her own mistakes, Tali must travel with uncertain friends and allies, untangling lies from truths. With dark magic, dragons, and the rumbles of war approaching, Talyien must prove she is both a woman of heart and the Bitch Queen, if only to protect her land and save those that she loves. The power plays are woven tightly into the action, as Villoso (Blackwood Marauders) broadens her worldbuilding and adds some surprising twists.
VERDICT Political intrigue and personal angst abound in this exciting sequel to The Wolf of Oren-Yaro, making this a must for epic fantasy readers.
