Giulia Degarno returns to her homeland with one intention: to kill the man who scarred her and left her for dead. But Publius Severra is no longer a mere criminal, and has risen to become a powerful politician - and whose death will throw Pagalia into anarchy. Now, as Severra stands poised to seize the throne, Giulia must choose between taking her revenge, and saving her home.
Up To The Throne is the first of three related novels that I'll be releasing in 2019. While each is a separate story, they are all set in a dark, magical Renaissance, where rival city-states strive to outdo one another in war and diplomacy. Giulia's world is a little like our own, but while there are princes and bishops, tradesmen and scholars, there are also magical creatures, bizarre inventions and a whole range of exciting new ways to die…
