Publisher's Summary

Sent on an impossible mission by Kingfountain's ruler into the heart of the enemy's capital as two mighty kingdoms prepare for war, Ankarette Tryneowy must divine the location of a magical sword, perhaps their key to victory. What she finds is the truth - one she could never have foreseen.

Searching for Firebos, the sword of ancient kings, is no simple task. It disappeared after one of the most powerful Fountain-blessed figures, the Maid of Donremy, used it in battle, and no one - except perhaps the Maid's dearest friend, the Duke of La Marche - knows its whereabouts. But when Ankarette finds the aging duke in his prison cell and hears the mystery he unveils, her mission becomes more perilous than she could have possibly imagined.

    "First last"

    I read this book last because I didn't know it was there. It explains lots and in some ways I am glad I read it last. Love the series, enjoyed all of it. Just awaiting the latest book. Brilliant.

    "Exceeded my expectations"

    I am quickly falling in love with the way that Jeff Wheeler writes. The plot and characters are carefully orchestrated and interwoven. Even the language, his word choice, amazes me. The Maid's war tells the story of how the Maid of Donremy plays a vital role in the events that unfold in the Kingfountain series. While it happens before Owen Kiskadden was born, it might just be better to read it after the rest of the Kingfountain books. There were times that I listened in awe as the pieces of this puzzle fell into place, and even got goose bumps as things unfolded.

    I must also admit that Kate Rudd is becoming my favorite narrator. Her brilliant story-telling teams with Wheeler's writing to create a masterpiece. This series is definitely one of my favorites.

    "Tying All Together "

    I am happy that I read this book in the order that the author suggested. Jeff Wheeler brought together the history of the previous books. While I was reading (listening via Audible) last night, I was so sadden by the death of the main character, but like all his books, I could not put any of them down as the story was pulling no me farther into the web of Jeff’s imagination. Thank You Amazon for introducing me to this fantastic Author.

    "So so"

    Not bad- as a stand alone story not my favorite but as apart of the series and a prequel to the other phenomenal books, it was great! Kate Rudd was fantastic as usual, and the story keeps you thinking, but in my opinion not as good as the other books. Took me awhile to get into it, but by the end it had me on my toes! Would recommend reading this after the first three books and before the last three. Loved hearing the full story of the maid!!! The Owen trilogy is still my favorite but Jeff wheeler does a great job of keeping the story fresh and the characters new. On the must read list for sure!!!

    "Prequel"

    Great prequel story! The Poisoner & the Gentle Duke share a tale of the forgotten Maiden who was Fountain blessed with extraordinary gifts to restore a king and battle against intruders. A great story to enjoy after book 2 of the series even though the time frame occurs before Owen's birth. The narrator did a fantastic job!

    "Compelling enough to continue…"

    This prequel is compelling enough for me to continue on to the first book in the series. However, it is far from a masterpiece. The performance is okay at best but Ms. Rudd lacks the vocal depth for the number of characters in this story. More accomplished vocalists can give a unique voice to each character but The voices in this book tend to sound similar.
