Description

For fans of Red Queen and Grave Mercy comes the captivating sequel to the Renaissance France-inspired epic fantasy The Queen's Rising.

Brienna is a mistress of knowledge and is beginning to settle into her role as the daughter of the once disgraced lord, Davin MacQuinn. Though she'd just survived a revolution that will return a queen to the throne, she faces yet another challenge: acceptance by the MacQuinns.

But as Queen Isolde Kavanagh's closest confidant, she'll have to balance serving her father's House as well as her country.

Then there's Aodhan Morgan, formerly known as Cartier Évariste, who is adjusting to the stark contrast between his pre-rebellion life in Valenia and his current one as lord of a fallen House. As he attempts to restore the Morgane name, he let his mind wander--what if he doesn't have to raise his House alone? What if Brienna could stand by his side?

But Brienna and Cartier must put their feelings aside, as there are more vital tasks at hand--the Lannons' trial, forging alliances, and ensuring that no one halts the queen's coronation. Resistance is rumbling among the old regime's supporters, who are desperate to find a weakness in the rebels' forces.

And what makes one more vulnerable than love?

Back cover copy

At long last, Brienna is a mistress of knowledge and is settling into her role as the daughter of Davin MacQuinn, the disgraced lord who returned to Maevana to reclaim his House. Though she's just survived a revolution that will finally put a queen back on the throne, she faces yet another challenge: acceptance by the MacQuinns. But as Queen Isolde Kavanagh's closest confidant, she'll have to balance serving her father's House with serving her country. And then there's Cartier.

Aodhan Morgane, formerly known as Cartier Évariste, is adjusting to the stark contrast between his pre-rebellion life in Valenia and his current one as lord of a fallen House. During his castle's restoration, he discovers Tomas, a young boy whose past is a mystery. So when Brienna is as taken with Tomas as he is, Cartier lets his mind wander--what if he doesn't have to raise him or his House alone?

However, Brienna and Cartier must put their love aside and stay focused on the most vital tasks at hand--the Lannons' trial, forging alliances, executing justice, and ensuring that no one halts the queen's coronation. But resistance is rumbling among the old regime's supporters, who are desperate to find a weakness in the rebels' forces. And what makes one more vulnerable than love?

In this epic follow-up to The Queen's Rising, Rebecca Ross weaves political intrigue, complicated relationships, and undying love to create a story that readers won't be able to put down.

Review quote

"Rebecca Ross weaves a tale of hope, valor, and revenge of the most heart wrenching kind. The Queen's Rising duology is unlike any other YA fantasy novel I've read and has been a story my heart had no idea it desperately needed to read."--Taylor Beach, Instagram Book Reviewer from @the bookish ballad
