About the Cover:
Marissa is also an artist and painted the lute and the painted words. Using her art, we incorporated these elements into her cover design by using parchment to give it a medieval feel and created a style and brand for her Tir Athair series.
Within a day of arriving in the royal city of Cynegil, Liam and his traveling troupe of actors face arrest for entertaining during a time of mourning. They have one option: indulge the crown enough to keep them out of prison. As Liam plays his lute for the new king, the troupe becomes entangled in a larger plot, with more dangerous characters: The twin princes who grapple for the throne. The redheaded washerwoman who leads three lives. The royal soldier with his own deadly secret, and a skill for causing “unfortunate accidents.” And a kingdom of nobles who shun the truth, at the demise of their people.
Liam witnesses and records the kingdom’s divide, until he must flee Cynegil, becoming part of history himself.
