Welcome to the Omani Realm, composed of twelve squabbling kingdoms, ruled by a holy dictator, who takes a new consort every six years during the Festival of the Single Moon. Young noble women are painstakingly groomed to be presented as one of the consecratia and perhaps chosen as the next shallan breda, all with the hope of bearing a male heir.
People ask, what is the book about? Well, think "Game of Thrones" plus Arthurian legends plus a little of "The Tudors" and a hint of "The Borgias," strongly slanted toward female characters. The Cadian Sisterhood are what would have happened had our early Christian nuns been cautious (and even a little scheming) feminists.
There's a little magic, but not so much that readers who don't care for fantasy will be put off by it. There's a little romance, but not so much that it will make your stomach turn, because, after all, I wrote it and I have little patience for sap. There is a lot of drama, suspense, intrigue, betrayal, and scheming. All good stuff, right?

And my mom's, too. Because she doesn't understand why I'm not on the bestseller list already. Hurry up and put me there so she'll stop saying, "But your books are so good, I just don't understand...."
All kidding aside, I really hope you like it.
