Description

Anselm Andros has always thought he had a normal life - confidante to his mother, Maria, confessor to his stepfather, Leo, a man haunted by the secrets of his past, and support to his sister Jasmine. But when the political landscape of Malonia starts to shift, this unassuming family begin to unravel. Even though they have spent the past fifteen years leading a quiet life, Maria and Leo's actions are forever linked to the turbulent history of Malonia and its parallel world, modern-day England. The voices from the past still echo in the present and Anselm must pull all the pieces together - whatever the cost.show more

I want more than anything to tell you the truth about my life. I am a criminal, also a liar. But I swear this will be a true account. Anselm Andros has always thought he led a normal life with his mother Maria, stepfather Leo and sister Jasmine. His home country of Malonia has been at peace for fifteen years, since the tyrant Lucien was overthrown - but a shift in power and a return to turbulent, dark days is threatened. Maria and Leo's lives are forever linked to the history of Malonia and its parallel world, modern-day England, and soon this quiet, unassuming family begins to unravel. The voices from the past still echo in the present and Anselm must find a way to put all the pieces together - whatever the cost. Return to the brilliantly imagined, captivating and compelling world created by Catherine Banner, in this sequel to The Eyes of a King.show more
