The third in a fantasy novella trilogy that looks most intriguing releases today!!
I’ve heard so many good things about this trilogy by Anne Wheeler, an author of fantasy and (more commonly) science fiction and space opera. It’s high on my TBR, and I’m about to go purchase it (though it might have to wait a little bit since I just discovered I have twenty-four books that I’m currently reading. ouch).
The fantasy world this series takes place in sounds fascinating and the first book won a Realm Award just last month!
So, what is “Queen’s Crown” about?
Laurent has left to meet the Vassian Army at the border, leaving Riette in charge of Lochfeld Castle and indeed Meirdre itself. Waiting on war to come to the kingdom she loves is unthinkable, so she escapes to her home village for a visit, searching for one last bit of normalcy in a life that is no longer her own.
But that normalcy is shattered when Thomas arrives. Bitter over his imprisonment and bent on the revenge he’s always wanted, he’s intent on destroying Laurent and has no qualms about using Riette to do so. Worse, her power as a crownkeeper is no longer a secret, and King Damir of Vassian wants it for himself. From Lochfeld itself to a coastal town, defeat looms. For their adversary is well-prepared and powerful—a formidable enemy to her small kingdom.
But the map on the floor of Lochfeld’s ballroom holds power of its own—and Riette will discover what it truly means to be a crownkeeper.
Praise for book 1 in the trilogy, Treason’s Crown (2021 Realm Award winner, novella/novelette):
Doesn’t that sound amazing??
