Naida is living a lie.

A peerless battlefield surgeon. A talisman for the army. A symbol of hope in an impossible, grinding war.


A fraud.


Society, led by the queen, has long held that the Esselrode people and their abilities are inherently, irredeemably evil, a truth which Naida has been brought up to believe. But as one of them, feeling compelled to use her powers again and again to heal those on the brink of death, it's hard to accept. It's even harder to live a lie, conflicted about her hidden identity, when the truth could save lives.


Taken from the battlefield where she thrives to a court where her life hangs ever more precariously in the balance, Naida is about to learn that there are even greater secrets, and conspiracies, afoot . . . and that her dangerous truth could change the course of a nation . . .

James Barclay is back with a brand-new standalone adventure which will tug on your heartstrings and keep you glued to your seat. James is truly a fantasy great, and this new novel will satisfy all fans of the genre.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The Queen's Assassin shows James Barclay at his brilliant best, with a blood-soaked fantasy novel that couldn't be more relevant today. Naida, a gifted battlefield surgeon promoted against her wishes to become the Queen's personal physician, finds that operating on dying troops in the middle of a war is nothing, compared to the demands of surviving murderous intrigues in the Royal household, protecting gifted medics from persecution by luddites, and preventing the outbreak of a deadly epidemic. Fresh and contemporary, while also filled with the author's trademark mix of dry wit and brutal action, this is an overdue reminder that James Barclay is the master of heroic fantasy. - Patrick Mahon
