Wiccan Queen: An Eight Kingdoms Novel #2
The witch war is coming. There is no escape.
Fate chose Lyana to be the Wiccan Queen. Now she is being hunted. The veil between worlds is thinning and the Witch princess seeks revenge.
Aided by an ancient spirit, an immortal Wiccan lord and an ancient cauldron, Lyana vows to protect the kingdom she has grown to love. To defeat her nemesis, she must harness the ancient power of the Wiccan Queen, including the astonishing ability to travel the astral plane where time means nothing and existence is merely a matter of perspective.
Jack should kill Lyana for what she is. It is the law. But he is the king and he has the power to rewrite the law. While Stormguaard prepares for war, Jack searches vast forest lands for the woman he loves. Soon he finds himself battling more than one ancient and vicious enemy to survive.
Both Lyana and Jack must face their foes head on. For if the witch princess captures her prize, there will be no going back—for anyone.
This is the second book in the Blessed King duology. Dive into this romantic fantasy, set in a vast magical world. Readers of Sarah J Maas and Holly Black, who love all things fae with a good helping of Witches, Wiccans and magic thrown in, will love the tales of The Eight Kingdoms.
This book will suck you in from the first sentence. This book is the continuation of Jack and Lyana’s story. The conclusion of it. This is not a stand alone novel. You would have to the read first book, Blessed King. The Goddess and the Guardians series will help you to get the backstory of them and to become familiar with them. An epic ending for them. I did a book review of the Blessed King.
She has a gift of story telling and to captivate you, the reader into the story. So many emotions in this book that you will experience. You will see everything coming together in this book. More rich world-building in this book also. You will see a whole new different culture to a new people. The book not only focus on Jack but on Lyana as well.
Karen has a new book coming out next week, on the 4th.
The third book of an Eight Kingdoms novel. Here is the Link if you want to go it.
