Product Description & Reviews
The New York Times bestselling "epic feminist fantasy perfect for fans of Game of Thrones" (Bustle).A world divided.A queendom without an heir.An ancient enemy awakens.The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction--but assassins are getting closer to her door. Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep. An Amazon Best Book of March 2019: Samantha Shannon’s latest, The Priory of the Orange Tree, is a compelling high fantasy novel, filled to the brim with dragons, dueling religions, magic, and political intrigue. Shannon’s strength is breathing new life into the genre with a cadre of richly-imagined, powerful women at the center of this unforgettable fantasy world. The three civilizations at the heart of Shannon’s book have all been shaped and honed by their relationship to dragons. In the matriarchal Virtudom, dragons are seen as entirely evil, while in the East they are worshipped and ridden by dragon riders. In the South, a group of female mages live to keep the evil, draconic leader, the Nameless One, and his ilk in check. It soon becomes clear the Nameless One will return and that civilizations will rise and fall in the process. It is in these moments—when societies collide and a richly-detailed world emerges—that Shannon is at her very best. --Alison Walker, Amazon Book Review
