Two queens confront the ultimate choice as a rebellion emerges against a dangerous despot - and both sides want them dead. When the world of magic is under threat, is loyalty worth their lives? Wickedness awaits in this exhilarating installment in the acclaimed Nissera Chronicles.
Return to Nissera, land of three kingdoms and home to spectacular magic. An uneasy peace reigns now that Valory has vanquished the Moth King and settled into her rightful place as queen of Calgoran. New leaders Glisette and Kadri hope to usher the neighboring kingdoms into an era of healing and prosperity. All should be well.
But there's a fourth queen in charge: Ambrosine, banished overseas to Perispos. Driven by vanity, she vows to become the most powerful and beautiful ruler in the world, even if it means oppressing the mortal kingdom she is meant to protect. Meanwhile a dangerous uprising led by elicromancer-hating rebels gains momentum. Rot spreads through the Forest of the West Fringe. Valory goes missing. Facing enemies on all sides, Glisette and Kadri must reckon with the role of magic. How far will they go to defend their power - and can they build an uprising of their own?
West intertwines homages to Snow White and Bluebeard with her imaginative magical setting for a breathtaking follow-up to Realm of Ruins. Stunning hardcover edition includes a two-page map and family tree.
Glisette Lorenthi – Kathryn Newton
An elicromancer newly coronated as Queen of Volarre; tends to be haughty but is learning to be a humble and just queen. Kathryn Newton is perfect because you can tell she’s a softie underneath that perfect biting wit.
Kadri Lillis – Ayisha Hart
Bright and diplomatic Queen of Yorth with a talent for archery and a few surprising magic tricks up her sleeve. Ayisha Hart is realistically a bit too old to play a teenager but I’m not taking the “official” part of this official dream casting too seriously.
Ambrosine Lorenthi – Skyler Samuels
Beautiful, vain older sister of Glisette who was married off to a foreign king after bankrupting Volarre with her frivolous spending habits. She unites with a dark supernatural being inside her mirror to wreak havoc on her new subjects and reclaim power. (Basically, all the Evil Queen vibes). Skyler Samuels is exquisite and would be so compelling as a villain – look at those cunning eyes! Plus she resembles Kathryn Newton enough to pass for her older sister.
Navara Vasila – Eliza Faria
Ambrosine’s new step-daughter, who has a kind heart and is fiercely loyal to her people. As she blossoms, her unique beauty threatens Ambrosine’s fragile ego.
Severo Segona – Noah Centineo
The king’s rugged young huntsman, ordered by Ambrosine to kill Glisette and Princess Navara.
That does it for the main characters of this installment, but feel free to check out my Palace of Silver Pinterest board if you want to see more aesthetics (and lots of sparkly gowns)!
