A Kingdom at risk, a crown divided, a family drenched in blood.

Tessa Gratton's debut epic adult fantasy, The Queens of Innis Lear, brings to life a world that hums with ancient magic, and characters as ruthless as the tides.

The erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.

The king's three daughters - battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia - know the realm's only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself.

But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.

Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war - but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Powerful, poetic fantasy that will take hold of your heart' - Ed McDonald, author of Blackwing

'I adore this - rich, epic, blood-soaked - a glorious and grand sweeping fantasy' - Kate Elliott, author of The Poisoned Blade

'A gloriously symphonic, thematically rich variation on the story of the daughters of Lear. The danger of seeking certainty makes this a tale for our time; the power of truth and mercy makes it a tale for all times. Prepare to devour every word, for Innis Lear will consume you' - Karen Lord, author of Redemption in Indigo

'Messy, beautiful, and dark, darker than Shakespeare could have dreamed' - E. K. Johnston, author of Star Wars: Ahsoka

“Pure theatre!”

This is a world of magic beneath the stars. Vividly depicted you will be drawn to the imaginary.
It a multicharacter epic that emphatically lives up to its ambition. Gaela, Regan and Elia are very different.
