The Queen's Necklace
The ensorceled gems that once held all humans in sway now power a hundred small kingdoms, but the monarchy of Mountfalcon is suddenly in dire peril. For the Queen has unwittingly lost the realm-sustaining, jeweled Chaos Machine -- a castastrophe that could tear the kingdom apart. Captain of the Queen's Guard, Wilrowan Blackheart has been entrusted with the Machine's recovery -- an undertaking that slowly reveals a horrific conspiracy spreading far beyond Mountfalcon's borders, as the deposed Maglore plot to reduce the unsuspecting human world to rubble and flames. But unbeknownst to him, another has also embarked on the same mission: a determined crusader of strength and substance...the only woman Blackheart has ever loved, but can never possess.

"I've been waiting a long time for a new book by Teresa Edgerton, and I wasn't disappointed. Edgerton surpasses herself with this standalone fantasy epic ? a complete story in one volume! Edgerton's wit, attention to detail, and lush prose are a delight, nor does she stint on feats of derring-do, mystery, magic, intrigue, and romance. I can't recommend" The Queen's Necklace highly enough! Read this wonderful book and see for yourself." -- Kate Elliott"As a long-time fan of Teresa Edgerton's work, I'm delighted that she is stepping onto a larger stage with her latest (and long-awaited!) novel. "The Queen's Necklace is epic in scope and imagination, covering centuries and miles with equal deftness, and Teresa's quick wit and telling eye for social detail is evident in every line. Long live "The Queen's Necklace!" -- Rosemary Edgehill
