Hundreds are dead at the hands of The Four.

Three months after the events of Leithar Grove, Tamir is a kingdom in fear. The people no longer trust Prince Remelas; his military ambitions are now public knowledge. So the Sons of Tamir, a nationalistic faction created within this atmosphere of betrayal, march on the capital to seek Remelas’ abdication.

And still the rumours persist of a young girl who walked away, unharmed, from Leithar Grove that night. Crazed seers and prophets continue to preach of the Queen of the World. Sarene, accompanied by the huge woodsman Kanderil, journeys ever onwards in hope of finding shelter from the coming winter. Her family left behind, her brother dead, she finds herself increasingly isolated from a world becoming steadily more perilous.

Sarene refuses to believe what these nameless strangers say about her. Yet she must come face to face with the truth of what she is. What she represents.

And that truth will come at the highest cost.


For Ben Hennessy, writing a novel was one of those bucket list things. Being able to say he’d published a novel would be pretty cool, and he’d had a story idea bouncing around in his head for a fair while. To his surprise and delight, Queen of the World was accepted and released in 2012.

Ben’s time between books has primarily been spent building a career in the video game industry, where he now writes full-time, and which has always been a life goal.

Ben Hennessey’s follow up to Queen of the World was another well written piece of fantasy literature. Expounding on the story offered up in the first instillation of the series, all the wonderful characters are back (along with a few new characters to boot). While many of the questions have been answered, a whole new set of questions have arrived leaving me in anticipation of the next book.
