Happy Friday! So much going on at home and it is very late when I am prepping this post so I will make it a quick giveaway (mostly so I have time to read just a little bit before bed). 🙂
I am currently reading this week’s giveaway and although it is not something I would normally grab, I am enjoying it. This is funny since a quick check showed that I have read a short story by Milla Vane before which was part of an anthology and apparently I said the same thing in my prior review.
I am enjoying the introduction to the characters and can’t wait until we get into the real conflict (actually battle in this case). Since I also have a paperback copy for sharing, I am sharing with you.
Just leave a comment to be entered.
Giveaway ends Thursday, January 30th. Open to U.S. residents, 18 years and older.
A generation past, the western realms were embroiled in endless war. Then the Destroyer came. From the blood and ashes he left behind, a tenuous alliance rose between the barbarian riders of Parsathe and the walled kingdoms of the south. That alliance is all that stands against the return of an ancient evil—until the barbarian king and queen are slain in an act of bloody betrayal.
Though forbidden by the alliance council to kill the corrupt king responsible for his parents’ murders, Maddek vows to avenge them, even if it costs him the Parsathean crown. But when he learns it was the king’s daughter who lured his parents to their deaths, the barbarian warrior is determined to make her pay.
Yet the woman Maddek captures is not what he expected. Though the last in a line of legendary warrior-queens, Yvenne is small and weak, and the sharpest weapons she wields are her mind and her tongue. Even more surprising is the marriage she proposes to unite them in their goals and to claim their thrones—because her desire for vengeance against her father burns even hotter than his own…
