Product Description

Product Description

In the city of Aufleur two strange young men fall from the sky and Velody's life is changed forever ... a beautiful and compelling story of finding one's heart ... She almost missed the sight of a naked youth falling out of the sky. He was long and lean and muscled ... He was also completely off his face. A war is being fought in the skies over the city of Aufleur. No one sees the battles. No one knows how close they come to destruction every time the sun sets. During daylight, all is well, but when nox falls and the sky turns bright, someone has to step up and lead the Creature Court into battle. twelve years ago, Garnet kissed Velody and stole her magic. Five years ago, he betrayed Ashiol, and took his powers by force. But now the Creature Court is at a crossroads ... they need a Power and Majesty who won't give up or lose themselves in madness ...

Format: Kindle Edition
When I first saw this book, I expected it to be a lighter read, perhaps with a teenage protagonist. But that's not what "Power and Majesty" is like at all. This is one dark and intense novel. There's sex scenes. There's a hell of a lot of violence. There's monsters, and betrayal, and torture - it's fantastic.

It's set in Aufleur, a city partly based on Ancient Rome, and a city under attack each night from the sky. These attacks are only visible to the Creature Court, those people with magic who fight the night sky. Velody had her magic taken away when she was younger, but after the Power and Majesty of the Creature Court dies, she gets it back - and is suddenly thrust into a completely unfamiliar world, with its own very vicious politics. So who will be the new Power and Majesty?

This is fantastic and very original fantasy, from an Australian author. It doesn't have a cliffhanger ending, but there's so much more of this story to come - I'm really looking forward to the sequel.
