About this product
- DescriptionThis brilliant new installment in bestselling author Susan Carroll's mesmerizing Dark Queen historical fiction series is perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory.
Queen Catherine de Medici is dead, and for Meg Wolfe--successor in a line of legendary healers and mystics kwn as daughters of the earth --it is a time of new beginnings. She strives to be ordinary, invisible in the mists of Faire Isle, and is determined to put the terrifying days of a wicked mother and turbulent childhood behind her. But soon a summons from King James will rekindle a menacing power from the past, bringing haunting visions of a nightmare already unfolding--and a shattering mystery steeped in magic that will determine a destiny from which she cant hide.
Meg's task: Save the king from the most insidious form of treachery, invisible to those who do t possess Meg's extraordinary gifts. But as Meg discovers, there are more sinister motivations at play in the king's world. Torn between two very different men whose motives and secrets are tied inexorably to her own fate, Meg learns that she can longer trust anyone or anything--t even her own heart.
Praise for Susan Carroll's Twilight of a Queen

Fascinating . . . full of twists and turns and a lot of intriguing historical detail. --Night Owl Reviews
