The Poison Throne

Celine Kiernan

This is the first book in a compelling trilogy of court intrigue, adventure and romance. Fifteen-year-old Wynter Moorehawke returns home after a five-year sojourn in the bleak Northlands. All has changed in her absence. Wynter is forced to make a terrible choice: stay and bow to the King’s will, or abandon her ailing father and join her friend Razi and the mysterious Christopher Garron in their efforts to restore the fragile kingdom to its former stability. But this changed kingdom is a dangerous place, where all resistance is brutally suppressed and the trio constantly risk assassination, torture or imprisonment. Set in a fantastical medieval Europe, The Poison Throne is a gothic tale which draws the reader in from the very first sentence and doesn't loosen its grip until the last.
