From international bestselling author Karen Miller comes her most ambitious and exciting fantasy novel to date - a brand new series at a special introductory hardcover price.
NO ONE IS INNOCENT. EVERY CROWN IS TARNISHED.
A royal child, believed dead, sets his eyes on regaining his father's stolen throne.
A bastard lord, uprising against his tyrant cousin, sheds more blood than he bargained for.
A duke's widow, defending her daughter, defies the ambitious lord who'd control them both.
And two brothers, divided by ambition, will learn the true meaning of treachery.
All of this will come to pass, and the only certainty is that nothing will remain as it once was. As royal houses rise and fall, empires are reborn and friends become enemies, it becomes clear that much will be demanded of those who follow the path to power.
Karen Miller was born in Vancouver, Canada, and came to Australia with her family when she was two. Apart from a two year stint in the UK after graduating she’s lived around Sydney ever since. She has held a variety of interesting jobs and fell in love with speculative fiction at primary school.
Karen Miller also writes as K. E. Mills.
