'Complex and engrossing; fans of George R.R. Martin and Joe Abercrombie should particularly take note' - Publisher's Weekly
'A truly epic read full of intrigue and betrayal anchored in wonderful characters' - John Gwynne, author of MALICE
EVERY CROWN IS TARNISHED BY THE BLOOD OF AMBITION.
In a divided kingdom, some will do anything to seize the crown.
A BASTARD LORD, rising up against his tyrant cousin, sheds more blood than he bargained for.
A ROYAL CHILD, believed dead, sets his eyes on regaining his father's stolen throne.
A DUKE'S WIDOW, defending her daughter, defies the ambitious lord who'd control them both.
And TWO BROTHERS, divided by ambition, will learn the true meaning of treachery.
All of this will come to pass, and nothing will remain as it once was. Royal houses will fall, empires will be reborn, and those who seek the Falcon Throne will pay for it in blood.
Nobody is innocent. Every crown is tarnished. Welcome to the start of a major new epic fantasy series from the million-copy bestselling Karen Miller.
