The Warrior Queen
Kathryn Knowles, author
From the stillness, a hero rises. Catanya has escaped to the Kingdom of Awnell. Inside the towering fortress city, she meets Queen Ayr, a freethinking and cunning leader intent on safeguarding her people's liberty. Unsure who to trust, and still grappling with her untamed magic, Catanya must learn what it means to be a warrior. Miles away, Diyah's strength is tested as new allies emerge and old secrets unravel. Torn between fear and curiosity, she begins to suspect that nothing is as it seems in Caerlon. As the division between brother and sister threatens to ignite a centuries old conflict between kingdoms, both Catanya and Diyah must decide what price they are willing to pay for freedom. New dangers approach and mysterious legends emerge in the second installment of the Quiescence Trilogy.
