My Current Read:
Kingdom Asunder by Thaddeus White
One of the fallen men grabbed her leg and pulled her to the ground. He clambered on top of her, and she sought her dagger’s hilt, but the weapon was trapped beneath her. His sword glinted in the light of the dying sun, and she seized his wrist. Feral hate shone in his eyes as he used his weight to force the blade ever nearer her throat. Her fingers scrabbled for her dagger.
“Any last words, bitch?” he murmured, soft as a lover’s whisper.
Blood made the floor slick and filled his nostrils with the dreadful exhilaration of battle. Two more archers had been killed, and one of his men was frantically stabbing a corpse over and over again.
He approached the man-at-arms and shouted for him to stop, and when that failed he cuffed the blood-crazed soldier around the ear.
“They killed my brother,” the man, a Dennish mercenary, spat.
“Then let’s go kill more of them,’ Hugh answered.
From the author of Bane of Souls, and Journey to Altmortis, comes epic fantasy Kingdom Asunder:
What crime is more unforgivable than treason?
Princess Karena is all that stands between the House of Penmere and ruin. The King, her brother, was gravely wounded in a failed assassination attempt, and once-loyal followers are flocking to the treacherous Usurper’s golden embrace.
But Karena knows the surest defence is attack, and will stop at nothing to destroy any rival to her brother… or herself.
Against her, the Usurper musters a vast army to crush Penmere once and for all, but in a war of treachery those closest to you can be the greatest threat.
