New Fantasy Series – “The Cursed Kingdom Trilogy”

Emily Gee, the critically-acclaimed author of Thief With No Shadow and The Laurentine Spy, has written a new fantasy adventure series called The Cursed Kingdom Trilogy.

The first of the series The Sentinel Mage, is the story of Harkeld of Osgaard, a prince with mage’s blood running through his veins. He is the only man who can break an ancient curse consuming his lands. Helping him is his armsman, Innis. But Innis isn’t all that “he” seems as he is really a “she”! Innis is a talented shapeshifter who must hide her true nature to protect the Prince from those who seek to stop him from breaking the spell.

The book is a new take on the classic action/magic combo with social class issues and identity themes throughout. It sounds like a really interesting series – right up my reading alley!

It goes on sale in the US and Canada on January 25th and in the UK on February 3rd. Click below the cut for the full press release:

The start of the gripping new Cursed Kingdoms trilogy!

In a distant corner of the Seven Kingdoms, an ancient curse festers and grows, consuming everything in its path. Only one man can break it: Harkeld of Osgaard, a prince with mage’s blood in his veins. But Prince Harkeld has a bounty on his head – and assassins at his heels.

Innis is a gifted shapeshifter. Now she must do the forbidden: become a man. She must stand at Prince Harkeld’s side as his armsman, protecting and deceiving him. But the deserts of Masse are more dangerous than the assassins hunting the prince. The curse has woken deadly creatures, and the magic Prince Harkeld loathes may be the only thing standing between him and death.

The first book in a thrilling new heroic fantasy trilogy, Emily Gee’s The Sentinel Mage combines high action and an exciting new take on magic with challenging themes of identity and social taboo, as a strong cast of engaging characters races against time to save a world threatened with a horrific curse.

“Her haunting prose reads like Hans Christian Andersen for twenty-first century adults.”
– New York Times
bestselling author Nalini Singh
