Description

EVERY CROWN IS TARNISHED BY THE BLOOD OF AMBITION.

In a divided Kingdom, some will do anything to seize the crown.

A BASTARD LORD, rising up against his tyrant cousin, sheds more blood than he bargained for.

A ROYAL CHILD, believed dead, sets his eyes on regaining his father's stolen throne.

A DUKE'S WIDOW, defending her daughter, defies the ambitious lord who'd control them both.

And TWO BROTHERS, divided by ambition, will learn the true meaning of treachery.

All of this will come to pass, and nothing will remain as it once was. Royal houses will fall, empires will be reborn, and those who seek the Falcon Throne will pay for it in blood.

WITH THE FALCON THRONE, A MAJOR NEW EPIC FANTASY BEGINS.

Review quote

A major new epic fantasy begins * Queensland Times * Miller's numerous fans will definitely stay for the long haul * Sunday Canberra Times * Fans of George R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan and other such writers of epic fantasy will find much to like here . . . a compelling read * READING LARK * Excellent writing, amazing characters, intricate woven plotlines, and lots and lots of blood, most of that unfortunately spurting from the wrong people. No elves or dragons, but some of the most in-depth world-building I've ever read, and the heroes (and anti-heroes) could shake themselves off the page. This book drew me in with the opening sentence and held me until the end . . . I remain breathless from the read. * LIBRARY THING * Top-notch fantasy . . . a masterclass writer * SFFWORLD * Miller is clearly a very talented writer: her characterisation is a masterclass in nuance and sensitivity, and she has a visceral way with action * SFX * The sheer scope and genius of this series dazzles... stylistically brilliant * SPECULATING ON SPECFIC * A writer who seems to set the rule for the genre * WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY * It will entrap you and hold you captive, you will look up from its pages to discover you have lost hours * APN NETWORK * Complex and engrossing; fans of George R.R. Martin and Joe Abercrombie should particularly take note * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * A truly epic read full of intrigue and betrayal anchored in wonderful characters * John Gwynne, author of MALICE * Blood, dirt and backstabbing . . . impressively elaborate and detailed . . . this dark world will draw you in * SCIFINOW *
