Originally published by the O'Brien Press in Ireland, Celine Kiernan's début fantasy series, beginning with The Poisoned Throne was snapped up by Orbit, offering Kiernan the kind of worldwide distribution and market penetration that will be the envy of other first time authors. Essentially a medieval tale of courtly intrigue, its female teenage protagonist, Wynter Moorehawke (for whom the trilogy is named) is the role model for the target demographic - interestingly publishers in other territories are selling this as YA novel. Book two The Crowded Shadows was recently published and now the third and final volume The Rebel Prince is published as a paperback original.
"Wynter is at last reunited with the exiled Prince Alberon, as he plots insurgency from his forest encampment. But she is losing faith with her companions, as they attempt to drive Alberon's plans in different directions. Caught between Razi's complex diplomacy, Alberon's desire for martial strength and Christopher's fierce personal loyalty, Wynter finds herself torn. Can she combine these philosophies, and find a way to heal the rift between king and heir? Or will each side destroy the other, causing Wynter to lose everything she holds dear? She fears the answers lie veiled in conflict and loss. "
