Synopses & Reviews
Though a bloody coup has made Mykella ruler of her land, it has left her and her two sisters bereft of family and uncertain of their friends. Worse, an examinationof the nations accounts reveals that their country is almost destitute. Plus, there are rumblings of war along the borders. With no money and few allies, Mykella is faced with the difficult prospect of rebuilding her nation while trying to hold off a potentially devastating invasion.
Fortunately for Mykella, an old magic has awakened in her; a power that gives her the ability to read the emotions of others and to spy on the movements of her enemies. But the resurgence of this power might herald the return of an ancient enemy, one that Mykella isnt sure how to face.
Praise for The Corean Chronicles
“Modesitt reveals again why success follows his novels. The characters are flawless, his world-building continues to enchant, and there is always plenty of conflict and mystery.”
—RT Book Reviews on The Lord-Protectors Daughter
“The characters have become more fascinating with each novel; moreover, this one includes even more action than either of its predecessors…which contributes mightily to bringing the adventures of Dainyl, Alector of Corus, and Mykel, an officer in the native military corps, to a stunning conclusion while leaving enough unanswered questions for many more Corean stories.”
—Booklist, starred review on Soarers Choice
“A powerful, enthralling, and exciting fantasy epic.”
—Midwest Book Review on Scepters
A fantasy novel in the Corean Chronicles. This direct sequel to Lord-Protector's Daughter features the same protagonist and cast of wonderful supporting characters.
