Fifteen-year-old Wynter Moorehawke faces a terrible choice: bow to the kings will while tending to her ailing father; or risk assassination, torture and imprisonment to join her friend Razi and the mysterious Christopher Garron in their efforts to restore the kingdom to its former stability. Original. *Author: Kiernan, Celine *Series Title: The Moorehawke Trilogy *Publication Date: 2010/04/07 *Number of Pages: 496 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.50 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.50
From the Publisher:
Young Wynter Moorehawke returns to court with her dying father - but she finds her old home shadowed with fear and riddled with dangerous secrets. King Jonathon has become a violent despot, terrorizing those he once loved, and his son Alberon has fled into exile to plan a royal coup. Meanwhile, Alberon's half-brother Razi has been elevated to heir, and struggles to meet King Jonathon's increasingly untenable commands while keeping his sanity.

And at the heart of matters lies a war machine so lethal that no one dares speak of it. The kingdom would belong to the machine's master, yet the consequences of using it are too appalling to consider. But temptation has ever been the enemy of reason.
Annotation:
Celine Kiernan kicks off her exciting Moorehawke trilogy with the story of a teenage girl trying to stop a maniacal king. Set in the 15th century, the tale centers around Wynter Moorehawke, a young woman who has just returned to King Jonathon's court. When she learns of the King's plans for a devastating killing machine, she becomes determined to thwart his evil ways.

Praise

"Atmospheric, complex, and intense, Kiernan's debut fantasy...mixes vengeful ghosts and talking cats into political intrigue." (starred review) 02/15/2010
