Blood is thicker than water. Unfortunately not everyone is equally deserving of the trust that is an integral part of that saying. In the seventh book of the Corean Chronicles readers see how true that problem can be for a trusting ruler. From official release/information:
Product Description: The Lord-Protector's Daughter is a standalone fantasy novel that takes place in Tempre, the capital city of Lanachrona on Corus, the world of Modesitt's Corean Chronicles.
From there, matters become more perilous. There are attempts to remove Mykella and her sisters from Tempre by marrying them off to lords in neighboring lands, and fatal and near fatal accidents occur to members of her family and trusted retainers. While Mykella develops a solid idea of who stands behind it all, every attempted solution is used to discredit her. How can she save their father and land?
