In the aftermath of Ireland’s battle with her ancient enemies, Queen Isolde orders her cousin, smuggler Duncan O’Malley, to assume the throne of fairy as King Finvara. He’s a fish out of water when it comes to nurturing the alliance between Ireland’s mortal and fairy peoples. And the queen wants him to wed the daughter of Ireland’s enemy, the king of Icelandic shadow elves, to help keep the peace. But the Irish think of the elves as goblins, and Finvara refuses.
Elven princess Koli, affronted by the king’s rejection—along with his decision to bring her to court as little more than a captive—vows vengeance. Shortly after her arrival, she uncovers a plot that would bring swift satisfaction. A dark and powerful fairy lord, Far Dorocha, wants to take Finvara’s crown and lead both the fairy and elven people to war against the Irish. And he wants Koli to help him.
It’s the perfect setup for revenge, but Koli soon discovers that Finvara’s not the haughty lord she believed him to be. And as she navigates treacherous waters inside the court, she gets glimpses of the magic and passion that have been slumbering inside her. She must choose a side in the new battle for Ireland—will it be the fearsome father she has served for nearly a century, or the fairy king who has helped awaken her to herself?
I finally got around to reading The Absinthe Earl and while I didn’t emphatically love it, I am still very excited about the sequel! Books like this have the potential to be a lot of fun and I’m all about that right now. The Raven Lady is expected out on October 13th 2020 from Blackstone publishing.

I’m excited for this too, and the characters are different so I think it’s more of a companion novel than a sequel😁
I’m really interested to see how it is compared to book one and if it avoids that trope I dislike or not lol. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this one!💜
I liked this.créateurs hhhh
Ooh, I’d love to read more of her work.
Same, I’m really curious about this sequel. 🙂
Yeah, I also wasn’t totally smitten with the Absinthe Earl but I didn’t dislike it and would certainly read more by this author.
Yep, that’s pretty much my feelings. Often times I am kind of ‘meh’ on the first book of a series and wind up liking the sequels so we’ll see how this goes. 🙂
