    Hi, guys!

    I'm about to finish The Priory of the Orange Tree and I'm liking it quite a lot. I didn't expect liking it so much, so I came here to recommend it to you.


    Here's the overview:

    The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction - but assassins are getting closer to her door. Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic. Across the dark sea, Tane has trained to be a dragonrider since she was a child, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel. Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

    I started reading this book as soon as I finished a non-fiction one about Human Resources for work (I work here, and even if I like it sometimes you need something else), so it felt like a breeze of fresh air. If you like fantasy, Game-of-Thrones-kind-of-fantasy, I think you'll like this one. Let me know what you think if you give it a chance!
