Marla Wolfblade, princess of Hythria, is determined to restore her family to its former power and glory. But Hythria is a fiercely patriarchal society, and Marla knows power may only be gained through a man. Narrowly avoiding an arranged marriage to the King of Fardohnya, she instead marries Laren, Warlord of Krakandar Province, and gives birth to a son. Damin is named heir to the throne of Hythria by his uncle, the dissolute High Prince. Settling into life as the wife of a warlord, Marla believes the future of her familyis secured, but there are forces in the land that do not want the house of Wolfbalde restored. Can Marla protect her son and her family and stop the conspirators?show more

Review quote

"The fantasy genre has its baggage--Renaissance fairs, role-playing games, Christopher Lambert. So credit Fallon for exploring themes like dirty politics and religious tolerance for the launch of her Hythrun Chronicles series, a bestseller in her native Australia . . . an intriguing soap opera of espionage and family revelations."--"Entertainment Weekly" on the Hythrun Chronicles"Jennifer Fallon structures her novels to capture the reader from the opening paragraph and you can only break from her grasp when you reach the final page."--Altair on the Hythrun Chronicles"A gripping tale of warring ambitions, politics, and "real "people. The characters (and even the gods!) spring to vivid, believable life, making "Medalon "a great read. More, please!"--Ed Greenwood on "Medalon""A well-executed fantasy with complex characters and entertaining style."--Kirkus Reviews on "Treason Keep"show more
