Publisher's Summary

Dynasties battle for the crown in Tessa Gratton's debut adult epic fantasy audiobook, 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.

Once you get into it, it’s good.

It’s a little slow at first, but once you get into it, it’s a great book.

A wonderfully written story, well developed characters, excellent pacing. Starts a bit slow but well worth it. Highly recommend it.

Hard to start, well worth the effort

I started this book a lot of times. You have to pay attention. Once you do, it's an amazing and gripping adventure. I don't write many reviews, but felt this one was worth it.

Slowest story with a fantastic narrator

I went into this book knowing it was going to be long but hoping it was long because it was going to be amazing. unfortunately I wasn't sympathetic to any of the characters thoughts seem to drag on until the last 10%. The narrator was awesome so I don't bereft her for anything
