Pale Queen's Courtyard is the debut novel of Marcin Wrona.
In a land where magical abilities will earn you a trip to the desert at high noon, destinies collide in this fantasy tale that draws on myth and legend.
Leonine is a thief and murderer, but more importantly, he is a sorcerer. His past is dark and violent, his future uncertain. Kamvar is a follower of Ahamash, the approved god of his world. He has devoted his life to the faith and works diligently to bring sorcerers to their rightful end.
Before the end, both Leonine and Kamvar will have their wills, their faiths, and their loyalties tested. Will they stay true to themselves? Or will they collapse beneath the pressures that are thrust upon them?
I just finished this book and really loved it. A review will be posted soon.
