Summary

Witch - the Queen who would bring freedom to the realms - has come, but now she is lost in darkness, and has a long road to recovery ahead of her. While her adopted father, Saeten, waits for her to return to the living world, the third side of the triangle needed to complete the prophecy - the lover, Daemon - walks in the Twisted Kingdom on the edge of madness.

As insidious whispers and dark schemes ferment treachery and betrayal, Jaenelle must make a choice: To protect those she loves, she must be more than an heir, she must become a Queen.

Critic reviews

"Bishop seems to delight in turning fantasy conventions on their head ... darkly opulent, often exotic." (Locus)
