Dynasties battle for the crown in Tessa Gratton's debut adult epic fantasy,The Queens of Innis Lear.

Three Queens. One crown. All out war.

Gaela. Ruthless Commander.
I am the rightful heir of Innis Lear. No more will I wait in the shadows and watch my mother’s murderer bleed my island dry.

The King’s hold on the crown must end—willingly or at the edge of my sword.

Regan. Master Manipulator.
To secure my place on the throne, I must produce an heir. Countless times I have fed the island’s forests my blood. Yet, my ambition is cursed.

No matter what or whom I must destroy, I will wield the magic of Innis Lear.

Elia. Star-blessed Priest.
My sisters hide in the shadows like serpents, waiting to strike our ailing king. I must protect my father, even if it means marrying a stranger.

We all have to make sacrifices. Love and freedom will be mine.

Praise forThe Queens of Innis Lear

"Amazing." —Robin McKinley

"The Queens of Innis Lear is a spectacular book. This is a story about family and love, jealousy and destiny, with its roots in the earth and stretching to the stars. Beautifully written, it's full of complex characters who will break your heart and heal it again. An instant favorite, this is a book I'll return to again and again."—Kat Howard, author ofAn Unkindness of Magicians

"Gratton takes Shakespeare's Lear to the sharpest, darkest, and most beautiful edge, perhaps where it should've existed all along." —Dhonielle Clayton,New York Times bestselling author ofThe Belles

“I adore this—rich, epic, blood-soaked—a glorious and grand sweeping fantasy.” —Kate Elliott, author ofThe Poisoned Blade

“A gloriously symphonic, thematically rich variation on the story of the daughters of Lear. The danger of seeking certainty makes this a tale for our time; the power of truth and mercy makes it a tale for all times. Prepare to devour every word, for Innis Lear will consume you.” —Karen Lord, author ofRedemption in Indigo

"Messy, beautiful, and dark, darker than Shakespeare could have dreamed." —E. K. Johnston, author ofStar Wars: Ahsoka

"A darkly rendered epic of old magic, hardened hearts, and complicated choices"—Booklist, starred review

“Enthralling.”—Publishers Weekly

“Engrossing and magical adult debut.”—Library Journal

“A welcome sight in the genre.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[An] extraordinary and epic tale of family tragedy.”RT Book Reviews
