The Two-Faced Queen
The Hollows is gripped by unrest and on the brink of civil war as an insurgency of anarchists rises, and brother and sister vie for the throne in the second novel in the critically hailed Legacy of the Mercenary King series, which Kirkus called "A MASTERCLASS IN GRAND-SCALE STORYTELLING." Michael Kingman thought he was going to die by the executioner's ax, forever labeled as a traitor. Still alive, and under the protection of the Orbis Mercenary Company, Michael and his family and friends are deeply involved in the seemingly rival conspiracies that are tearing the Hollows apart. With the death of the king, both the Corrupt Prince and his sister, Serena, are vying for the throne, while the Rebel Emperor is spreading lies amongst the people, and all of them want Michael dead. This is a story of betrayal, murder, and rebellion, and in this direct sequel to the debut novel The Kingdom of Liars, also some hope for justice. For readers who love the intrigue and widening scope of epic fantasy, you have found your next must-read series.
