The Wayward War: Casual Reading

The Wayward War is finally finished!

“A new Elizabethan History. A prequel to The Wayward Women, The Wayward War tells the story of Penti Celia’s ascension as Duchess of Amosa. Celia’s mother, Penti Marria, reveals before her death that her bastard daughter Nolia has an equal right to the throne of Amosa. Suddenly torn apart by differing ideals, the sisters cannot rule together, nor will either submit to the other’s reign. Allies are set against each other, and friends are forced to watch friends die in a match of freedom against order.”

We’re having a casual reading this Saturday.
