In the sequel to Conqueror's Moon, King Conrig has finally united the warring factions of High Blenholm under his rule, but he faces new challenges as his enemies are on guard for the slightest weakness, rumors of his illicit magical talents surface, his supposedly long-dead first wife Maudrayne resurfaces, and the Trove of Drusillo, powerful moonstone sigils, mysteriously vanish.

The author lives in the state of Washington.From Booklist:
King Conrig, former prince of Cathra, now rules all four kingdoms on the island of High Blenholme and fervently hopes his new queen will bear a child without talent for sorcery, for sorcerers can't be rulers. The conjure-queen of Moss, with whose aid Conrig conquered the island, continues assisting him, though her brother Beynor opposes him so violently that he will even ally with ancient, nonhuman foes. Maudrayne, Conrig's former queen, thought to have committed suicide and thereby alienated her family from his, seems now to be alive and the mother of an heir to Conrig's throne. Then the collection of powerful texts and talismans called Trove of Darasilo disappears, most likely stolen by Beynor, desperate to gain Moss' independence. Conrig calls on childhood friend Snudge, now Sir Deveron Austrey, to find the Trove. But will Conrig use the Trove to extend his conquests? Although it helps to have read this book's predecessor, Conqueror's Moon (2004), May here meets her usual standards for storytelling while creating more of a very well designed world. Frieda Murray
