Coriane recounts her heady courtship with the crown prince, the birth of a new prince, Cal, and the potentially deadly challenges that lie ahead for her in royal life.


Steel Scars
CAPTAIN FARLEY was raised to be strong, but being tasked with planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta is a tougher job than expected. As she travels the land recruiting black market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital, she stumbles upan a connection that may prove to be the key to the entire operation--Mare Barrow.


Plus a sneak peek of Glass Sword!

My Review

Okay, this book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I fell head-over-heels for both of these novellas and the small taste of Glass Sword! I loved learning more about Cal's mother and what really happened to her. I enjoyed seeing Captain Farley at her finest, and how she got associated with Mare. I also really, really, enjoyed reading a small piece of Glass Sword! I'm now so, so, so excited for the next installment now! I can't wait to have it in my hands! I highly recommend you pick this one up if you loved the first installment, Red Queen. Or plan on reading it. I promise, you won't not regret it. And if you do pick it up, I hope you love it just as much as I do!
