State of Sorrow

Publisher: Scholastic

Sorrow is out of her depth. At barely 18 years old, she is expected to deputise for her father as ruler of Rhannon: a country haunted by the death of her infant brother almost two decades ago.

When shocking revelations lead to a ruthless battle for power, Sorrow decides she has no choice but to sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of her country’s future – but the struggle is more challenging than she could possibly have imagined.

This is the first book in a new fantasy thriller series characterised by thwarted love, fraud, trickery and deliberate deception. Complex world-building and convincing protagonists make it easy to identify with Sorrow’s ordeal. Startling plot twists will keep you gripped until the last page and impatient for the next instalment.

Note: There is some sexual content.
