The prequel The Crown of Rowan introduces the compelling and magical world within Daughters of the Storm, the new full–length novel from award–winning fantasy writer Kim Wilkins, publishing 1 November 2014.

There are seven kings in Thrysland. My father is one of them, and my husband is another. In my belly, perhaps, I carry a third.

Rose is the beautiful unhappily married daughter of a king and she has a secret to keep, not just from her husband but from her sisters – fierce warrior Bluebell, and Ash, a seer in possession of great but unknown powers. But larger events are afoot in Thrysland. The country is plunged into war with merciless raiders; religious zealots are at work on Rose's husband, King Wengest, and more than that, there is a dark and deep magic at work throughout the land that threatens them all…
