When Gillian told us that she was writing a follow-up to The Reluctant Prophet, we were very excited. Her debut novel has garnered some excellent reviews and is well received across the board. Nominated for The Rubery Book Award and The People’s Book Prize, it’s a beautiful and evocative tale set in a fantasy world that is as harsh as it is wonderful.
The Sinner’s Daughter does not disappoint.
The artwork is by the exceptionally talented EVELINN ENOKSEN who we love with a passion!
It tells the story of Tamryn, a noblewoman with a gift that shows her the auras of those around her…here’s a small taster blurb from Gilly.
“The will of the Gods . . .”
One fateful night will change Tamryn of Locke’s life forever.
Abducted on the night of their brother’s crowning, Tamryn and her half-brother Darius are taken to the land of their peoples’ age old and bitter enemy, the Orvaen. Relying on wit, courage and faith, Tamryn and Darius must stand with pride before an enemy Queen who despises and wishes to destroy them.
But for Tamryn, a bargain made with her Gods to free her brother deals a cruel hand. One that leaves her questioning everything she thought of the Gods and their dealings with those faithful to them.
Having to rely and put her trust in the enemy for survival, Tamryn embarks on a dangerous adventure through a land that will change her. The Orvaen have a God and a belief of their own, and an omen of a time long gone shadows Tamryn’s every step. But it is an omen that threatens to fracture the future of Orvaen, which is on the verge of a bloody civil war, as well as a war with Sinnotia, a realm determined to exact revenge for the abduction of its most gifted nobles.
For Tamryn, her hopes to return home are simple. But she knows that following her heart might not be the fate her Gods want for her, and her decision might put their complex machinations in jeopardy.
All the while, creeping in the shadows, a malevolent force grows in strength, and is ready to exert its own desires upon an unsuspecting world . . .
Following Esther’s story, The Sinner’s Daughter is set twenty-five years after the events of The Reluctant Prophet.
