ABOUT THE BOOK:
"This month’s adult option comes from a debut author who brings us to a realm on the brink of war and destruction in a political intrigue fantasy that could give Game of Thrones a run for its money. This debut arrives on the science fiction/fantasy scene with a bang, and more world-building than you could possibly hope for, and builds to a dramatic climax with increasing tension and suspense.
Our main character is a scholar and the protégé of a warrior-queen who has just been assassinated. When the scholar, a commoner, is shockingly assigned the task of choosing a new ruler from among the nobility of the surrounding city-states, she is thrust into a world of political machinations, alliances, betrayals, and death she feels woefully unprepared for. Add in an evil queen long-thought dead who may be returning to conquer the realm, and the scholar’s secret drug addiction, and it seems things could not get more complicated. Until they do.
This novel delights in thwarting reader expectations, seeming to be one kind of story before transforming into another about a third of the way through. It is so full of well-laid but shocking plot twists that you will not be able to catch your breath from beginning to end. On top of all this is a protagonist who is brilliant and brave despite her growing addiction, and who is the very definition of disaster bi. This book is already a contender for my favorite book of the year!
This book depicts some very mild consensual BDSM. It is more implied than anything, but there are a couple scenes that give some description.
