Naomi Novik’s Spinning Silver meets Game of Thrones in a mesmerising and unputdownable Balkan fantasy novel of family and survival from the instant New York Times bestselling author of Wilder Girls.
Rhea and her twin brother Lexos have spent an eternity helping their father rule their small, unstable country. For a hundred years, they’ve been each other’s only ally, defending one another against their father’s increasingly unpredictable anger. Now, with an independence movement gaining ground and their father’s rule weakening, the twins must take matters into their own hands to keep their family – their entire world – from crashing down around them.
But other nations are vying for power, ready to cross and double cross, and if Rhea and Lexos aren’t careful, they’ll end up facing each other across the battlefield.
