'They called me the Bitch Queen, the she-wolf, because I murdered a man and exiled my king the night before they crowned me.'
Born under the towers of Oren-yaro, Queen Talyien inherited a deeply divided kingdom, devastated by years of war. Her marriage to the son of a rival clan was meant to herald peace, yet her fiance disappeared before their reign could even begin.
Now, years later, Talyien receives a message that will send her across on the sea. Yet what was meant as an effort to reconcile the past leaves her stranded in a land she doesn't know, with assassins at her back and no idea who she can trust.
If Talyien is to survive, she must embrace her namesake.
A wolf of Oren-yaro is not tamed.
