The Councilor

by E. J. Beaton
Release date: 2021
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhigh fantasy

Who can she trust in this game of lies...

When the scholar Lysande is plucked from obscurity by the Iron Queen, Sarelin, to become her ward, her confidante and her friend - she has no idea how much her life will change. Sarelin is murdered and Lysande is chosen to become the Councillor, the sole person in charge of choosing the new monarch for the realm. But how will she pick between the four men and women presenting themselves as the potential heir to the throne? And what if one of them is her friend's killer?

Further from home an old enemy is stirring - the White Queen is on the move again and her alliance with the magic-wielding Elementals poses a threat not just to the peace of the realm - but to the survival of everything that Lysande cares about.

Set against a backdrop of politics, magic and with a wonderful cast of original characters in a richly- imagined world - this is an exciting new voice in fantasy for fans of Robin Hobb, Naomi Novik and Seth Dickinson.
