It Takes a Queen to Save a Kingdom
The last thing Riette expects on a snowy winter’s evening is Meirdre’s royal guard appearing on her doorstep. Their purpose? The king needs a bride, and tradition dictates the position is hers to accept. Desperate to secure her parents’ future, she agrees to the marriage and is whisked away to Lochfeld Castle, all too aware her childhood friend is there as well, imprisoned as a rebel in the dungeons below.
But life at the Meirdrean court isn’t anything Riette expected. Not only does King Laurent have secrets, but so does the castle itself—mysteries she alone can see. The latest in a long line of women chosen to protect Meirdre, she discovers her foremost purpose is to shield the kingdom from both natural disasters and outside forces who would love to see it fall. War is on the horizon . . . but can she call upon her powers to stop it?
Between love and treachery, Riette will discover what it truly means to be a crownkeeper—because accepting her future as queen of Meirdre might be the one thing that saves her kingdom.
For those who prefer standalone novels, Crownkeeper consists of the novellas Treason’s Crown, War’s Crown, and Queen’s Crown. It contains limited new material.
