Debut author Sarah Kozloff offers a breathtaking and cinematic epic fantasy of a ruler coming of age in A Queen in Hiding first in the quartet of The Nine Realms series.

Four books. Four months. Nine Realms.

Exiled and hunted, Cerulia, Princess of Weirandale, knows she has one destiny.

Except their gods.
