Image of The Huntress: A Novel (The Dark Queen Saga)

The dark, mystical world and masterful storyline Carroll created for The Dark Queen reaches a dramatic conclusion. Carroll spins a web of intrigue, magic and passion to hold readers enthralled by her storytelling.

As the dark queen, Catherine de Medici's power wanes in France, and Elizabeth I's rises, compelling the covenant of the Silver Rose to bloom once more. The women who practice the black arts see the streaking comet shooting across the eastern sky as an omen of misfortune.

The only hope for good resides on the Faire Isle with its huntress, Catriona O'Hanlon, who is sent to England seeking the infamous Book of Shadows and the heiress to the Lady of the Faire Isle, Meg, the daughter of the feared Martin Le Lupe. The only person standing in Catriona's way is Martin, who protects his daughter. Yet with her own powers, Catriona discovers Meg and uncovers a plot against Elizabeth. But her greatest struggle is fighting her growing love for Martin. (Ballantine, Aug., 490 pp., $13.95)
