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.

Amazing in-depth story, told by a very clear and easy to understand narrator. I often struggle with some narrators being too American or speaking too flat, but this is my new favourite audiobook reader. Plus the story is full of world-building, interesting characters and strong females. Love love love!
