Rielle Dardenne has been anointed Sun Queen, but her trials are far from over. The Gate keeping the angels at bay is falling. To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love Audric protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien — but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist. Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: She is the Sun Queen, humanity’s long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption — fear of becoming another Rielle — keeps Eliana’s power dangerous and unpredictable. Hunted by all, racing against time to save her dying friend Navi, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted — by embracing her mother’s power, or rejecting it forever.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

Kingsbane by Claire Legrand


  • We’ve been waiting for this one since the second we closed Furyborn and we were NOT disappointed. All we can say is, CAN WE PLEASE GET THE NEXT BOOK NOW! Right. Now.
  • Claire Legrand has a way of transporting us into the story. The setting and storytelling are so unique. When you combine that with Rielle and Eliana and the twists that fill their story, you have the recipe for something special.
  • Are you in the mood for a steamy YA Fantasy that’s filled with polarizing characters, a magical world you’ll want to run into and away from, heaps of swoon, and an ending that will leave you speechless? Look no further than Kingsbane. But, really. That ending?!? Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
