There are just so very many exciting fantasy-related things going on this month! Today I am pleased and excited to help out with the reveal of the next book by my author-friend, Kendra E. Ardnek, WORTH OF A KING. I’ve read Kendra’s Bookania Quests and absolutely loved them, she writes endearing characters and entertaining plots with a whimsical flair that I just adore. I am looking forward to reading more of her stories!
Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.
Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.
Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.
The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.
That sounds epic and intriguing! I’m excited about this book!
Kendra has been kind enough to post the FIRST CHAPTER of this story on her blog, if you’d like to whet your appetite a bit.
And here is a snippet that you can only find here, on my blog today:
“What’s wrong, Sidi?” Delaney suddenly asked. “Does the current trend in belts have you that concerned?” His tone was light, but there was concern underneath.
Obsidia forced a laugh and dropped her hand to her lap. “Oh … it just occurred to me that I have to talk to a crowd of strangers very soon.”
Nadilynn giggled unhelpfully, poking Obsidia. “Oh, poor Sidi! Whatever shall she do, Del?”

Isn’t that pretty? I think of all Ms. Ardnek’s covers, this one is my favorite so far!
Kendra E. Ardnek loves fairytales and twisting them in new and exciting ways. She’s been telling or acting them out for her dozen plus cousins and siblings for years. “Finish your story, Kendra,” is frequently heard at family gatherings. Her sole life goal has always been to grow up and be an author of fantasy and children’s tales that glorify God and His Word.
