Summary

From The Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jeff Wheeler.

Before she befriended a frightened young boy in the palace of Kingfountain, Ankarette Tryneowy grew up during the shattering civil war that raged between members of the Argentine family. This is the story of how the only daughter of a lawyer and a midwife became the famed Queen's Poisoner.

Recruited by King Eredur's ambitious uncle, Ankarette is thrown into a world of double dealing, deception, and tangled loyalties. With the help of her mentor and friend, Sir Thomas, she must learn to trust her instincts and remember that others will not always be loyal, even when they are of the same blood. But involving herself in the machinations of the realm draws the eye of an enemy more dangerous than kings or dukes. How will she navigate the politics of the realm and the desires of her heart to become the woman she needs to become?

A Lovely Find

This prequel is a story about a young girl, Ankarette Tryneowy, whose life changes when she is taken from her home at a young age by Lord Warrewik to become maid to his daughter, Isobel, and to train to become the King's poisoner.

This is a great start to what promises to be a brilliant series.

Wheeler & Rudd triumph again

Just finished this book in 2 days and am a wreck - again. This fantasy world and it's stories remind me so much of the amazing Muirwood novels and Rudd's talented vocal and performance skills take this book from good to amazing. I love the very human, very identifiable charactars and before long knew them so well I knew how they would react. As well as the situations they were in but served in rich descriptive tones performed in a way to make them new.

Excellent book

The whole series is very good, the story is fascinating and the characters are well developed, insidious intrigue, heartbreaking drama and a lot of "human heart in conflict with itself." Very well written, and well presented. Bravo.
