For nearly a thousand years, the firstborn son of every Cannamore king has drawn the sword, and the land and her people have indeed prospered. Princess Nyx Bel-Hannon is neither male nor firstborn, but it’s her hand that draws the sword rather than her twin brother’s. Her reward: imprisonment.
But a deep darkness now spreads across the kingdom, and her borders are threatened by creatures capable of magic powerful enough to destroy mountains and split the land asunder. Without the true heir to wield the sword, Cannamore risks annihilation. The king and crown prince want nothing more than to be permanently rid of Nyx, but cannot afford her blood on their hands. Instead, they give her to a fractious warlord in the hope he will do what they dare not.
Nyx has no intention of letting the warlord get in the way of her thirst for revenge or the need to claim her throne. But it’s a quest that may well destroy the kingdom she loves, because Nyx has been cursed by the god of war. It is her destiny to save Cannamore.
Or utterly destroy it.
What everyone is saying about Keri Arthur’s novels:
Arthur’s stories are full of adventure, action, and satisfying human interplay. The humor is dry and based in her characters’ often-painful experiences where defeat can resolve itself into personal victory. Her characters are people who work toward their goals in a hostile environment and win most of the time. They are all scarred and scared a lot of the time, but they continue down the paths they have chosen, protecting those they love along the way. Inspirational, is it not? Sharon Tucker, KRL News & Reviews, for Cursed
Writing books that stay with you, fascinate and make you want more seem to be Ms. Arthur's forte, as BURN is just that kind of read. If you want a dystopic world, a sexy hero, kick-butt heroine, drakkons, mages, magic and a nice touch of romance then BURN will have to be the next book you get your hands on. Annetta Sweetko, Fresh Fiction, for Burn
CITY OF LIGHT is bursting with action, suspense and the supernatural. If you’re looking for a kickass heroine with a big heart to match, look no further than Tiger. I suspect big things for her character. Anne, Under the Covers Book Blog
