Heirs of Cothel Series, Book 1
Tradition holds that a mother who commits a mortal sin against the gods will be cursed with a daughter born a witch. Stephenie, the youngest princess of Cothel is just such a curse.
Hostage to her mother’s will while her father and older brother fight a war two countries away, Stephenie must overcome her mother’s plots if she is to save her father, brother, and the many soldiers she trained with.
Fearful of her mother’s growing traitorous behavior, Stephenie must escape Antar Castle. But to do so, she might have to rely upon her hidden powers, risking others discovering she is a witch…a risk that would most certainly result in her death by burning.
With the help of a select group of soldiers and an unexpected ally, she just might survive.
I really liked the original cover and I feel Sam did an excellent job with it. However, based on reader and reviewer feedback, and to go along with updates for the remaining books in the series, we re-released the series with new covers in 2014.
The cover to the left was originally commissions back in 2011 for the 2012 release.
