Summary

Summary

The acclaimed authors of The Map of Moments and The Secret Journeys of Jack London join creative forces once more in this epic, standalone novel—an exciting dark fantasy of gods and mortals, fools and heroes, saviors and destroyers with a brilliant beam of hope at its core--that should more than appeal to readers of N.K. Jemisin and Brandon Sanderson.

In the great kingdom of Quandis, everyone is a slave. Some are slaves to the gods. Most are slaves to everyone else.

Blessed by the gods with lives of comfort and splendor, the royal elite routinely perform their duties, yet some chafe at their role. A young woman of stunning ambition, Princess Phela refuses to allow a few obstacles—including her mother the queen and her brother, the heir apparent—stand in the way of claiming ultimate power and glory for herself.

Far below the royals are the Bajuman. Poor and oppressed, members of this wretched caste have but two paths out of servitude: the priesthood . . . or death.

Because magic has been kept at bay in Quandis, royals and Bajuman have lived together in an uneasy peace for centuries. But Princess Phela’s desire for power will disrupt the realm’s order, setting into motion a series of events that will end with her becoming a goddess in her own right . . . or ultimately destroying Quandis and all its inhabitants.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Golden and Lebbon reach new heights with this intriguing tale of magic and mayhem that delves deep into the human psyche and shows what great writing and characters are all about. It grabs you by the throat and heartstrings and won’t let go. If Blood of the Four isn’t on your Must Be Read pile, it should be!” Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“There’s something for everyone here, including some subtly feminist themes and several spectacular displays of magical conflict. This novel is an expert crowd-pleaser.” Publishers Weekly
“Horror titans Golden and Lebbon, who previously teamed up on the YA series the Secret Journeys of Jack London, meld their talents again in this fantasy of madness and war.” Booklist
Blood of the Four is magnificent! Epic in scope, grand in execution, and majestic and bloodthirsty in equal measure.” Sarah Beth Durst, author of The Queens of Renthia series
