Cruel Crown (Red Queen Novella)
The #1 New York Times bestselling series!
Discover the truth of Norta's bloody past in this paperback bind-up of two novella-length prequels to #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Aveyardâ€™s Red Queen series.
Queen Coriane, first wife of King Tiberias, keeps a secret diaryâ€”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.
Captain Farley exchanges coded transmissions with the resistance as she travels the land recruiting black market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital. She was raised to be strong, but planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta is a tougher job than expectedâ€”until she stumbles upon a connection that may prove to be the key to the entire operation: Mare Barrow.
This paperback bind-up also includes an excerpt of the second book in the Red Queen series, Glass Sword.
