Divide and Rule
Divide and Rule is a fantasy trilogy which traces the battle for the Queendom of Madrona. This riveting first book takes you into the matriarchal world of Madrona, and an unforgiving game of power, loyalty and betrayal.
Lieutenant Hannah Rogerson, a brilliant and talented Praetorian, is in charge of protecting ruling Queen Beatrice's husband, Lord Consort Guillaume. But Hannah’s orderly world veers to chaos when the Queen reveals a dark family secret and sets in motion a desperate plan to turn around her beleaguered reign.
An unwilling accomplice to the conspiracy, Hannah must somehow fulfil her duty to the Queen while she protects the Lord Consort – and the future of the Queendom of Madrona - from the consequences of old and new lies.
- It’s definitely a fantasy world, with a matriarchal society and touch of magic, but it almost doesn’t feel like one: this is above all a human story, grounded in the reality of love, loyalty and betrayal.
- The strong (and wonderfully imperfect!) female characters.
- The accompanying playlist, to match each chapter.
