In the G.A. Aiken's fantasy follow up to the USA Today bestselling Scarred Earth Saga's The Princess Knight and The Blacksmith Queen, two sisters battle for a single throne, warring factions take up arms, a land is divided, and uncertain allies become very certain lovers...With subtle commentary on today's political polarization, this riveting epic celebrates strong female characters and champions the underdog within a diverse, high fantasy framework.


Ainsley Farmerson has always planned to break free of the family business--and the family drama. But what was once farming, smithworking, and bickering over the dinner table has turned into open warfare between sisters. Sides have been taken, lives are on the line, and Ainsley has no doubt which sister must be queen. She'll do whatever is necessary to take down the soulless Beatrix. Even if that means joining forces with angry battle nuns, irritating monks, and overbearing centaurs.

Gruffyn of the Torn Moon Clan has no time for human beings. And yet...there is something about the uncontrollable princess that he can't ignore. Maybe it's the way her eldest sisters underestimate her. Or her bravery facing down dragons and mad queens from distant lands. Whatever the reason, Gruff is willing to fight by this human's side. Not only for the entertainment value, but because she's right. Beatrix must never be queen. So whatever he has to do, whoever he has to destroy, Gruff will battle beside Ainsley. Fast. Hard. And with absolutely no mercy...

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for G.A. Aiken’s Scarred Earth Saga
"Electrically fun...turns the usual fairy-tale class dynamics upside down...this is a book that encourages trust in people's goodness, if not their patience or good sense. It's light on the romance, but prodigiously good for the heart." —The New York Times on The Princess Knight  
“I really enjoyed the furious adventure and romance of The Princess Knight.” Smart Bitches, Trashy Books  
“Fans will be glad to see Aiken’s characteristic over-the-top humor and rapid-fire dialogue on display.” —Publishers Weekly
"Aiken's world building shines as she fills the series with dwarves, elves, centaurs, and demonic wolves which only Keeley can control. Tilting more toward fantasy, this paranormal romance will be a hit with fans of both genres who enjoy tales that are lighthearted and humorous...Teens are sure to relate to Keeley's rivalry with her sisters and her need to protect them." —Booklist on The Blacksmith Queen
"G.A. Aiken writes fantasy romance with a grin and a wink...Aiken builds a world and characters that feel real despite the sexy centaurs, demon wolves, and two suns in the sky. It may be laugh-out-loud funny, but at its heart this is a story of a woman who cares deeply for both the family she has and the one she creates." —Bookpage on The Blacksmith Queen
"[This] series launch by paranormal romance author Aiken is set in a world full of centaurs, witches and necromantic war monks...[A] Pratchettesque tone." —Publishers Weekly on The Blacksmith Queen
