The Ring and the Crown





What if the sun never set on the British Empire? Best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz does "glam of thrones" with this dazzling new alternate history fantasy series.



Princess Marie-Elizabeth, heir to the Lily Throne, and Morgan Myrddn, bastard daughter of the Mage of England, grew up together. But who will rule, and who will serve?



Quiet and gentle, Marie has never lived up to the ambitions of her mother, Queen Eleanor the Second, Supreme Ruler of the Franco-British Empire. With the help of 500-year-old Head Merlin, Emrys, Eleanor has maintained her stranglehold on the world's only source of magic. She rules the most powerful empire the world has ever seen. But even with the aid of Emrys' magic, Eleanor's extended lifespan is nearing its end. The princess must marry and produce an heir or the Empire will be vulnerable to its greatest enemy, Prussia.



The two kingdoms must unite to avert a deadly war, and the only solution is a match between Marie and Prince Leopold II, heir to the Prussian throne. But Marie has always loved James, her childhood friend and son of the Queen's Guard. Together, Marie and Morgan, a powerful magician in her own right, come up with a plan. Morgan will take on Marie's face, allowing the princess to escape with James and live the quiet life she's always wanted. And Morgan will get what she's always dreamed of--the chance to rule.



But the court intrigue and hunger for power in Lenoran England run deeper than anyone could imagine. In the end, there is only rule that matters in Eleanor's court: trust no one.

Isso é o que acontece em “The Ring & the Crown” pode parecer loucura, mas a autora criou um universo fantástico contando uma história alternativa. E além disso temos também magia (controlada pelo Império Fraco-Britânico) e as evoluções tecnológicas não avançaram como as noss... leia mais
