Description

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 Laran, 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 family is secured, but there are forces in the land that do not want the house of Wolfblade restored. Can Marla protect her son and her family and stop the conspirators?

Review quote

Praise for "The Demon Child Trilogy" by Jennifer Fallon "Medalon" "Treason Keep" "Harshini" "A warm and intriguing book with all-too-human characters who draw you in more deeply with each page." --L.E. Modesitt, Jr. on Medalon"MEDALON is an intriguing, intelligent and fun read with a refreshing take on female characters so often not seen in the genre." --Elizabeth Haydon on Medalon"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"I read Medalon, by Jennifer Fallon, and am impressed. This is a powerful, solid, imaginative, sometimes brutal fantasy novel with a splendidly worked out cast of characters. I like the way the gods are less than omnipotent, and dragons are magical constructs; this seems realistic in terms of magic, no oxymoron intended." --Piers Anthony on Medalon"A well-executed fantasy with complex characters and entertaining style." --Kirkus Reviews on Treason Keep"Intrigues, rivalries and romance provide an entertaining tangle in the second book in Australian fantasy author Fallon's Hythrun Chronicles (after Medalon). Accompanied by a large cast of compelling characters . . . new readers will be well rewarded; fans arriving straight from book one can dive right in." --Publishers Weekly on Treason Keep"As in Medalon (2004) and Treason Keep (2004), the capricious gods are part of the mix, and now intrigue and counterintrigue become even more complicated. The battles are fierce, the losses heartrending in Fallon's beautifully created world, whose disparate inhabitants are once again completely convincing, making Harshini a chilling, thrilling conclusion to the trilogy." --Booklist on Harshini"For fantasy fans comes another title from an Australian Author highly rated in this field. This is the final volume of the Demon Child Trilogy and it lives up to the entertaining action, imagination and power of its predecessors.... Prepare yourself for non-stop adventure and romance. A good getaway read." --The Australian Woman's Weekly on Harshini"One of the better Australian Fantasy books this year. . . . With Jennifer's first trilogy under her belt I expect to see great things in the future. Jennifer isn't only a writer to watch but she may become one to emulate. Harshini is a good book." --Altair on Harshini A warm and intriguing book with all-too-human characters who draw you in more deeply with each page. L.E.
