9780765380791: The Lyre Thief (The Hythrun Chronicles)

Her Serene Highness, Rakaia, Princess of Fardohnya, is off to Hythria, where her eldest sister is now the High Princess, to find herself a husband, and escape the inevitable bloodbath in the harem when her brother takes the throne.

Rakaia is not interested in marrying anyone, least of all some brute of a Hythrun Warlord she's never met, but she has a plan to save herself from that, too. If she can just convince her baseborn sister, Charisee, to play along, she might actually get away with it.

But there is trouble brewing across the continent. High Prince of Hythria, Damin Wolfblade, must head north to save the peace negotiated a decade ago between the Harshini, Hythria, Fardohnya, Medalon and Karien. He must leave behind an even more dangerous conflict brewing between his wife and his powerful mother, Princess Marla.

...And in far off Medalon, someone has stolen the music.

Their quest for the tiny stolen lyre containing the essence of the God of Music will eventually touch all their lives, threaten everything they hold dear and prove to be far more personal than any of them can imagine.

Review:

Ahhh where to even begin with the Lyre Thief ?! This story has absolutely everything a fantasy lover will well...love. There is brilliant world building, complex political intrigues and court politics, and some pretty bad ass characters. There is prophecy and warring gods as well. What more could you want?! I went into this semi blind since this is not a well known book or author to me and I was so glad I took that leap.

There are multiple character POV's that are incredibly intricately woven. I began to worry that I was not going to be able to fill in plot holes left by the last series but it quickly became apparent I need not fear. Fallon does a great job of informing the readers with out loads just strait info dumpage.

The epicness of what is going down is incredibly easy to grasp yet still very intriguing at the same time. I can't stress enough just how broad a picture she is able to paintI am without a doubt going to go back and read the series that took place before this called Demon Child,This is classic fantasy awesomeness at it's best. I cannot WAIT to see what happens next. Bring on Retribution (Hythrun Chronicles: War of the Gods #2)!!

Book Description Tor Books, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ten years have passed since the events of the Demon Child books that left the god Xaphista dead, the nation Karien without a religion or king and the matriarchal country of Medalon ruled by men. But it is in the kingdoms of the south that things really heat up. When Princess Rakaia of Fardohnya discovers she is not of royal birth, she agrees to marry a much older Hythrun noble in a chance to escape her father s wrath. Rakaia takes nothing but her jewels and her base-born half-sister, Charisee, who has been her slave, handmaiden and best friend since she was six years old. And who can pass as Rakaia s double. These two sisters embark on a Shakespearean tale of switched identities, complicated love triangles.and meddlesome gods. Rakaia is rescued on the road by none other than the Demon Child, R shiel, still searching for a way to force Death to release her near immortal Brak. Charisee tries to act like the princess she was never meant to be and manages to draw the attention of the God of Liars who applauds her deception and only wants to help. Then there is the little matter of the God of Music s magical totem that has been stolen.and how this theft may undo the universe. Powerful magics, byzantine politics, sweeping adventure, and a couple of juicy love stories thrown in for good measure, The Lyre Thief is classic Fallon that is sure to appeal to her fans.
