S. E. Turner avec A Hare in the Wilderness (Kingdom of Durundal Book 1) (English Edition)
When a child is born to the Imperial family, a future empress is hailed, and takes her position in line for the throne. But this child is different, and threatens the lineage of the dynasty. So she is stripped of all titles, removed from court, and along with the mother who bore her - banished to the wilderness forever.
Following a path of uncertainty and full of danger, they make their way north to the clans, who give shelter and protection for many years. Until the day an enemy breaches the horizon, the same enemy that banished them more than a decade ago.
But now, that child is a woman of courage, with exceptional fighting skills and a strength far beyond her years - she has faced death many times before and survived - for she is a survivor. That child is Ajeya, the forgotten Empress of Ataxata, and survive she must if she is to protect her clan, and ultimately, take back what is rightfully hers.
Weaved with blends of fantasy and history, and braided with folklore and ancient mythology - this is perfect for readers of young adult fiction, and adult fiction alike. With a colourful tapestry of richly woven characters and well crafted worlds, you are hooked into a saga of love, strength and ambition - for this is the Kingdom of Durundal - home of legends, and gateway to destiny.
