This book is part II of Exile’s Honor. Selaney, the new Queen, is lonely after the death of her father. Also, her Counselors are pressing her to get married and to produce a heir. What Albreich doesn’t realize is that there is more than one way to take over a country… in this case to marry the Queen, produce a child, and become Regent.
And yes, the only way that a Regent is named is if the Queen is dead.
This book was not quite as good as Exile’s Honor, but it was a decent part II. The plot was interesting. I give this book 3.5 stars.
