The Falcon Throne
Book One of the Tarnished Crown
By Karen Miller
Nobody is innocent. Every crown is tarnished. Welcome to the start of a major new epic fantasy series from the million-copy bestselling Karen Miller.
EVERY CROWN IS TARNISHED BY THE BLOOD OF AMBITION.
In a divided Kingdom, some will do anything to seize the crown.
A BASTARD LORD, rising up against his tyrant cousin, sheds more blood than he bargained for.
A ROYAL CHILD, believed dead, sets his eyes on regaining his father's stolen throne.
A DUKE'S WIDOW, defending her daughter, defies the ambitious lord who'd control them both.
And TWO BROTHERS, divided by ambition, will learn the true meaning of treachery.
All of this will come to pass, and nothing will remain as it once was. Royal houses will fall, empires will be reborn, and those who seek the Falcon Throne will pay for it in blood.
WITH THE FALCON THRONE, A MAJOR NEW EPIC FANTASY BEGINS.
Karen Miller was born in Vancouver, Canada, and came to Australia with her family when she was two. Apart from a two-year stint in the UK she's lived around Sydney ever since. She has held a variety of interesting jobs and fell in love with speculative fiction at primary school.

Top-notch fantasy . . . a masterclass writer — SFFWORLD
Excellent writing, amazing characters, intricate woven plotlines, and lots and lots of blood, most of that unfortunately spurting from the wrong people. No elves or dragons, but some of the most in-depth world-building I've ever read, and the heroes (and anti-heroes) could shake themselves off the page.
