BY SAMANTHA SHANNON
From the internationally bestselling author of The Bone Season, a trailblazing, epic high fantasy about a world on the brink of war with dragons--and the women who must lead the fight to save it.
A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens.
The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction--but assassins are getting closer to her door.
Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.
Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.
Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.
Hardcover, 848 pages
Expected publication: February 26th 2019 by Bloomsbury Publishing
I have been so unsure for months now if I wanted to read this book or not. As I have not read any of the books by Shannon yet. Well, I DNFed her first book, aaack. But everyone has been wanting this one. And I love the cover. And I kind of love the idea of holding this very very huge book, haha. And when I had to order from Waterstones, and saw the signed hardcover, I couldn't resist ordering it. Oops. And so now I will be reading this book too, haha. I hope it will end up being amazing. That I will love the romance too.
What are you waiting for on this divided Wednesday?
