Inhaltsangabe zu „The Gardens of Almhain“ von Laura Mallory

"This book felt like a mixture of The Alchemist, Dune and Greek myths all wrapped in to one." -Amazon Reviewer. "This is a well-told story of an epic journey toward justice, redemption and peace." -Amazon Reviewer On the peninsula of Calabria, corruption and greed have driven the greatest of its four kingdoms to the verge of political collapse and civil war. The king has been poisoned and his daughter fights to be the first unchallenged queen. Far to the west, across a glistening sea, lies the fabled Isle of Alesia. When an unknown enemy attacks, burning the sacred forests and slaughtering its inhabitants, the final sentinel of peace is shattered and the fury of the Twin Gods ignites. Isidora Fiannan, heir to the Lord and Lady of Alesia, escapes the massacre and seeks sanctuary on Calabria. Guided by hands of fate beyond her understanding, she stumbles into the very center of the peninsula’s conflict. Beside her stands an unlikely ally who has sworn to protect her from all harm. Arturo Bellamont, infamous courtier and former assassin of the dead king, has reasons of his own for safeguarding the Alesian Lady.  As mortal armies rise to either defend the new queen or tear her kingdom apart, so too do the Gods ready a celestial army to take vengeance for the burning of Alesia. Isidora, Arturo, and their companions must travel narrow, treacherous roads of destiny to find the only key to Calabria’s salvation: a memory of hope and dream of new beginnings.    Beautiful cover art copyright © 2013 Anita Hellevaara.
