The Traitor’s Game

We rated this book:


Lord Endric rules the kingdom of Antorra, and Kestra’s father is his closest advisor. He’s never been much of a father to her, not since her mother passed away. Simon was a great friend to her during those years, but then the theft occurred and he wasn’t anymore. Kestra has been living in the Lava Fields, but suddenly she receives a request to return. Foiling not just one but two kidnapping attempts along the way, Kestra arrives home with the charge that she is to find the Olden Blade, the only thing that can stop Lord Endric. All she knows is that she is a pawn, and the only way to win is to play The Traitor’s Game.

Nielsen has returned with her signature world-building and strong characters. Antorra is a place torn by divided allegiances and scorned peoples, a social commentary on today’s headlines. The shared backstory of the two main characters creates a subplot of romance and past intrigue that meshes simply and beautifully with the larger plot. A master at surprise twists and impossible plot points, Nielsen keeps readers guessing until the very end, leaving questions that can only be answered in a highly anticipated sequel.
