Baker & Taylor
After her husband is killed, faerie queen Lara is chosen to rule over Terah until their son is of age, but, since Terah has never before been ruled by a woman, she must govern from behind the scenes and help the women of a neighboring realm struggle to gain more control over their lives. Original.

& Taylor

Magnus Hauk dies while Prince Taj is too young to rule the people of Terah, and Lara accepts Magnus' dying wish that she takes on the responsibility, but there are many who oppose a woman ruler, which includes old enemies that continue their schemes for power and revenge.

Simon and Schuster

Mourn me but briefly.

Then find your destiny, Lara, my love, my life.

Now let me go.

With those words, the spirit of Magnus Hauk, Dominus of Terah, leaves his body—and thus the fate of a nation rests upon the faerie woman Lara's shoulders.

While Lara's son Prince Taj is well loved by the people of Terah, he is too young to rule, and Lara must obey Magnus's dying command and govern in his stead. Thankfully, she has a powerful ally in Prince Kaliq of the Shadows, though never was there a more seductive friend or foe. Yet some in Terah still believe that a female must never wear the crown…and Lara and her daughters will face old enemies who escaped the wrath of Magnus but are not yet finished with their schemes for power and revenge.
