A Queen This Fierce and Deadly

A Queen This Fierce and Deadly

(Kingdom of Lies, book 4)



This slow burn, enemies-to-lovers is perfect for romantasy readers who love Raven Kennedy, Amanda Bouchet, and Carissa Broadbent

‘Sometimes there are stories that are so beautifully crafted that they steal pieces of your heart and soul’ Reader Review


The price of love is loss.
We all pay it eventually. . .

Some moments are too painful to be endured, and some moments will break you if you let them.

And yet I can’t afford to let anything break me. Because we have one chance to win this war. One chance to create a better life for everyone across the four kingdoms.

Even as our enemies ally with each other, and our own allies are forced to betray their kingdoms, their people . . . and themselves.

And even as Regner plans something so cruel, so wholly evil, he’s poised to douse the last remaining spark of hope in this world.

Unless we kill him first.
