Summary

From The Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jeff Wheeler.
Before she befriended a frightened young boy in the palace of Kingfountain, Ankarette Tryneowy grew up during the shattering civil war that raged between members of the Argentine family. This is the story of how the only daughter of a lawyer and a midwife became the famed Queen's Poisoner.
Recruited by King Eredur's ambitious uncle, Ankarette is thrown into a world of double dealing, deception, and tangled loyalties. With the help of her mentor and friend, Sir Thomas, she must learn to trust her instincts and remember that others will not always be loyal, even when they are of the same blood. But involving herself in the machinations of the realm draws the eye of an enemy more dangerous than kings or dukes. How will she navigate the politics of the realm and the desires of her heart to become the woman she needs to become?

Wheeler & Rudd triumph again

Just finished this book in 2 days and am a wreck - again. This fantasy world and it's stories remind me so much of the amazing Muirwood novels and Rudd's talented vocal and performance skills take this book from good to amazing. I love the very human, very identifiable charactars and before long knew them so well I knew how they would react. As well as the situations they were in but served in rich descriptive tones performed in a way to make them new.

More please!

I can't get enough of Jeff Wheeler's wholesome fantasy. His characters are rich, kingdoms come alive and best of all the stories keep me grounded in the principals I hold dear.

Kate Rudd is never a disappointment

A joy to listen to. I had started reading The king fountain series and once I had listened to her I have had to hear them all.

Awaiting more!
