Throne of Darkness by Douglas Nicholas GIVEAWAY

Queen Maeve (Molly in common terms) and her granddaughter Nemain are going to face a horror even greater than the ones they have already seen.  Molly, who is older and very wise, can handle almost anything with her magic and knowledge but this challenge is almost too much for her...

Emily Bestler Books sent me an ARC of this story to read for review (thank you). It will be published the 31st of March, so be sure to grab it then.  If you haven't read the earlier books, pick them up and start on them.  It's fun to watch this family grow in talents and love.

I have loved this entire series.  I reviewed the first book yesterday, the second book some months ago (See the review here:  The Wicked), and now here is the review of the third.  I even read The Wicked over again and was enthralled by the story.  Then I realized I'd already reviewed it!  It was good the second time, too.

This third adventure is even more formidable than the others this foursome has faced.  The King has decided to get rid of his enemies.  He plans to attack and kill the Lords who are against him.  He also plans to use a sorcerer and shapeshifters to accomplish this.  The even more horrible thing is that the shapeshifters are huge hyenas from Africa.  They, too, have senses and know quite quickly about Molly and Nemain having powers of their own.  They call them witches.

The only reason Molly is involved is because she's basically been blackmailed into it.  One of the church's spies has told her she must help or she'll be persecuted for using "magic" in the past to save those Lords who needed her help.  She's willing but then she finds out the shapeshifters are two hundred strong.  How can four people fight that?

One night, while around the campfire, Hob is teasing his wife and says something that gives Molly an answer to that question.

The church's spy is no better than the rest of the bad guys.  It's a fine line that Molly walks.  She doesn't want to be racked by the church or killed by the King, but it's hard to avoid it.  This story is exciting to the last page.  I hope there will be another in this series.  It's been a pleasure to read so far.  Each book gets better.

I have the privilege of offering a copy of this book to one reader.  Leave a comment here on the blog and then email me:  info at bookfaerie.com with your name and address for shipping.  I'll pick one name out of the hat and give it to the publisher to have your book sent.  You'll enjoy reading it!
