Summary

Across the border, the Witch Lords are preparing for war. But before an invasion of Raverra can begin, all 17 Witch Lords must gather to agree a course of action. Lady Amalia Cornaro knows that this conclave might be her only chance to stifle the growing flames of war. 

Amalia and her warlock Zaira must go behind enemy lines, using every ounce of wit and cunning they have to avert the coming conflict. If they fail, it will all come down to swords and fire.

The Defiant Heir continues the spellbinding tale of courtly intrigue and dangerous magic that began with Gemmell Award short-listed debut The Tethered Mage.

excellent!

I feel like the author and the narrator have both really hit their stride in this book (which is the 2nd in the series). I was gripped and would have happily listened in one sitting if I could have gotten away with it.
