THE RIVEN KINGDOM
by Karen Miller

Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy

RT Rating

This stunning follow-up, second in the Godspeaker trilogy, will please fans who were uncomfortable with the brutal landscape and merciless heroine in Empress. Book two moves the action to a peace-loving kingdom and introduces a cast of likable characters and a strong, sympathetic heroine, while still offering brief glimpses of Hekat as she continues her barbaric path of conquest. Waiting for these two worlds to collide will have you on the edge of your seat and ready for book three.

Ethrea has been a peaceful island for 400 years. Now the king is dead and only Princess Rhian survives him. But the church will never allow a woman to rule, so Rhian runs off rather than be forced into marriage. With the help of a small band of champions she returns to take her place as queen. But even if she secures the throne, Ethrea faces great danger from conquering enemies, and Rhian's only hope may be Zandakar, an exile from Mijak.
