Queen Coriane, first wife of King Tiberias, keeps a secret diary—how else can she ensure that no one at the palace will use her thoughts against her? Coriane recounts her heady courtship with the crown prince, the birth of a new prince, Cal, and the potentially deadly challenges that lay ahead for her in royal life.


I enjoyed Steel Scars so much yesterday that I went back and read Queen Song, which I had completely forgotten to read in my blogging hiatus.

Queen Song tells us the story of Coriane’s rise to royalty as her family attempts to gain a more favorable position among Nortan lords, and Prince Tiberius (or Tibe as she comes to call him) begins courting her.

But court is a dangerous place, and even the thoughts in Coriane’s head aren’t safe, turned into terrible nightmares.

This novella was beautifully written, and the underlying theme of mental illness was incredibly powerful. I spent the whole time I was reading wondering whether Coriane was just unstable or if Elara was actually  manipulating Coriane’s thoughts.

I honestly couldn’t find a single thing wrong with this novella. I wish there was another one before Glass Sword comes out!
