Title: The Broken Realm Author: Sarah M. Cradit Genre: Epic Fantasy, Grimdark Fantasy, Fantasy Cover Designer: Regina Wamba Editor: Emily A. Lawrence Publication Date: March 23rd, 2021 Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
The treacherous, magical, seductive world of Kingdom of the White Sea, introduced by USA Today bestselling fantasy author Sarah M. Cradit in The Kingless Crown, continues in this thrilling sequel, The Broken Realm.
The crown demanded everything. The kingdom will answer.
Chaos paints the White Kingdom. Missing children, dead nobles, and a daring escape have created an upheaval that threatens the future of the entire realm.
The lords and ladies are armed with a powerful secret weapon as they prepare to make a stand against the crown, but the resistance has plenty to overcome before they can claim triumph. The lord-less Westerlands prepares for war with the formidable Quinlanden Guard spreading their men and cruelty to every corner of their Reach. In the Easterlands, the sorcerer Mortain cultivates his ominous influence over the enslaved Saleen, a decisive threat he could unleash upon the kingdom with a snap of his finger.
To the kingdom, it appears as if these assaults on their freedom are cosigned by the crown. It seems only a matter of time before the king’s victory becomes total.
But from his isolated throne in Duncarrow, King Eoghan has discovered his authority is not absolute. There are other powers at play, as sinister as they are resilient. Those close to him curate the facts he is fed, keeping him tucked away in the dark while they issue orders in his name. As his control spirals, and opposing forces gain ground, the king’s fragile resolve turns to desperation.
Yet, across the kingdom, a quiet but powerful awakening of magic is taking place. One that began generations ago, on a cold night in Duncarrow…
Sarah is the USA Today and International Bestselling Author of contemporary and epic fantasy.
An unabashed geek, Sarah enjoys studying subjects like the Plantagenet and Ptolemaic dynasties, and settling debates on provocative Tolkien topics such as why the Great Eagles are not Gandalf’s personal taxi service. Passionate about travel, Sarah has visited over twenty countries collecting sparks of inspiration (though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She’s a self-professed expert at crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned professional at finding ways to humiliate herself (bonus points if it happens in public). When at home in Pennsylvania, her husband and best friend, James, is very kind about indulging her love of fast German cars and expensive lattes.
So who am I?
Well, I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls, student, wife, reader and writer.
I write various genres, each under a different pen name. A writer's multiple personalities need to be named in order to identify them.
My real name is Leandri Geldenhuys (I know, real dutchman like), with whom I write Children's Lit (Lumin Finds the Lighthouse, 2017). My other Pen name is Lea Cherry which will be used to write the more darker and adult stuff.
I also dabble in Poetry a bit. You can find some of my stuff in the last book of The Dragonian Series (The Journal of Blake Leaf), written by Adrienne Woods.
