Publisher's Summary

Across the border, the Witch Lords of Vaskandar are preparing for war. But before an invasion can begin, they must call a rare gathering of all 17 lords to decide a course of action.

Lady Amalia Cornaro knows that this Conclave might be her only chance to smother the growing flames of war, and she is ready to make any sacrifice if it means saving Raverra from destruction.

Amalia and Zaira must go behind enemy lines, using every ounce of wit and cunning they have, to sway Vaskandar from war. Or else it will all come down to swords and fire. 

"Charming, intelligent, fast-moving, beautifully atmospheric. I couldn't put it down." (Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library)

"The best kind of fantasy." (Rosalyn Eves, author of Blood Rose Rebellion) 

The Defiant Heir is the second novel in a spellbinding new fantasy series.

I love this series.

I can't wait to what happens in the next book. The only draw back is the triangle love situation. I kind of find that over done in a lot of these types of books. Otherwise I recommend this book.
