this story of a kingdom threatened by an invading emperor who lusts for conquest sounded pretty interesting to me. his son, who the reader finds quickly is really loving and wishes for peace, is in this kingdom to help conqueror it. the three main characters, through who the story is told, are the queen, the heir and the young princess. the queen is aging and must pass on the throne but cannot when they are all forced to flee into hiding by the invaders. this summary is brief but the story is closely connected with the characters and i don't want to hand out to many teasers.
at the begginning of the book i was intrigued by the idea of this mystical kingdom with hidden secrets and mysterious rituals but by the third chapter i was wondering when something was going to happen to already. "tiger burning bright" hints that angels may play a very important role but then abruptly ignores the subject leaving the reader wondering why the lengthy description if they play no real role?
chapter after chapter is devoted to what every character is thinking, feeling, wearing and what they plan to do but never actually do.Read more ›
The city state of Merina is facing destruction by the Emperor Balthasar. The ruling house of the Tiger surrenders the city to the oncoming forces. The ruling Queen then disappears, along with her Dowager mother (presumed dead) and heir apparent daughter.
I'm a bit surprised by the negative reviews to this book. I found the weaving together of the 3 stories worked well. The characters were strong, yet different, both in their motivations and their actions. The three different heroines were an excellent use of 3 talented authors.
Recommended for any fantasy fans, fans of the authors involved, and especially fantasy works with strong female protagonists.

Very nice & entertaining book, written by three of my favourite authors in fantasy. Original plot with 3 women (of different ages) as the main characters (just like the authors)!.Published 23 months ago by Hauk Hjellestad
This is an excellent book. I recommend it. I didn't find it boring or tedious as others did. I like how wordy it is, the descriptives are rich and they come alive behind my eyes. Read morePublished on December 22, 2013 by LillithVonUlf
This is one of my favorite books. The three main characters are women. Each has a specific talent that they use to defeat the evil necromancer, Apolon. Read morePublished on May 14, 2013 by Amazon shopper
I liked this book a lot. The three points of view were interesting to me. I do agree that a longer ending or an epilogue might have been nice but overall a nice read.Published on April 24, 2013 by C. Nichols
It's a single book, not a series. It's a story of how grandma, mom and daughter use subterfuge to defend their kingdom. I loved it, and regularly re-read it. Read morePublished on April 15, 2012 by Germ
