A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens.
The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction—but assassins are getting closer to her door.
Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.
Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.
Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.
I’ve started seeing some buzz about this one around the book-o-sphere and had to check it out. It looks like it’s going to be a great read and also I absolutely love that cover. Looking forward to this one! The Priory of the Orange Tree is set to come out February 26th from Bloomsbury Publishing.

The cover is gorgeous :). Thanks!
Yes, wow, this does sound good, and that cover is calling to me, too! We need more orange covers! I hope you enjoy!
Cover called to me as well! Lol. Thanks!
This is the prettiest cover I’ve ever seen😁 I also coincidentally just got a notice from Goldsboro Books that they will be publishing a special edition with orange sprayed edges!
Oh my gosh, special edition! They must have high projections for this one. 🙂
This looks good!
Doesn’t it? 🙂
Yes, this looks AMAZING!! And dragons!! But is it just me or is this title really unique?
Yeah, the title is definitely unique. Makes me even more curious about it! 🙂
YASSS! I’m so excited for this book. Plus the cover is so stunning!
The cover is so beautiful and definitely what caught my eye first. 😀
Ohhhh sound interesting! I hadn’t heard of this one yet!
Here’s my Wednesday post
I saw this one on netgalley a bit ago and I was intrigued by the cover. 🙂
I’d seen the cover but hadn’t actually read the synopsis until today. That sounds amazing!
It really does! I admit I got caught by the cover first lol.
This one is definitely on my TBR as well, it sounds so good
I’m pretty interested to see what it’s all about. 🙂
This sounds really good! Thanks for sharing!
I am really interested in this one as well. I haven’t read anything else by Samantha Shannon, but I keep seeing this one pop up and the sheer size of it even has me intrigued. Great choice!
It really caught my eye and made me curious!
Looking forward to this one too…but I think it’s going to be an audio listen – it’s a tome!
Yeah, probably same here. Although I may pick up a physical copy just for the cover. 😂
I love the look and sound of this one too. I’ve see it on NG but it was only available to ‘wish for’ so I made a wish!
That is where I saw it too. I probably would have requested it as well had it been available at the time.
Ahh I can’t wait to read this book!! I hope you enjoy it!
Me too! It looks pretty interesting and the cover caught my eye.
