A broken promise. A bitter conflict.
And a woman’s elusive chance to love or die.

1458. Young Frenchwoman Estelle de Montavon sails to Cyprus imagining a bright future as tutor to a princess. Instead, she is betrayed by those she loves most—and forced into a dangerous new world of scheming courtiers, vicious power struggles, and the terrifying threat of war.

Determined to flee, Estelle enlists the help of an attractive and mysterious falconer. But on the eve of her escape, fortune’s wheel turns again. She gains entry to Queen Charlotta’s inner circle as a trusted scribe and interpreter, fighting her way to dizzying heights of influence.

Enemies old and new rise from the shadows as Estelle navigates a royal game of cat and mouse between the queen and her powerful half-brother, who wants the throne for himself.

When war comes to the island, Estelle faces a brutal reckoning for her loyalty to the queen. Will the impossible choice looming ahead be her doom—or her salvation?

With this richly-told story of courage, loyalty, and the sustaining power of love, Amy Maroney brings a mesmerizing and forgotten world to vivid life. The Queen’s Scribe is a stand-alone novel in the Sea and Stone Chronicles collection.

The Queen’s Scribe, is the third installment in the Sea and Stone Chronicles, by Amy Maroney

Ms Maroney, superbly blends real life historical figures, along with her own imagined characters, to create a thrilling historical fiction, full of courtly intrigue and action.

We follow our heroine the daughter of master falconer to Lord de Milly of Rhodes. Estelle de Montavon. Tasked to travel to Cyprus to become the French tutor of the recently widowed teenage Princess Charlotta. Estelle is met with opposition from the young Charlotta, heir to the throne. Court life is treacherous to say the least, Estelle needs to keep her wits about her if she is going to survive. She finds help and friendship with an under-falconer named Gabrie. As the young princess takes on the roll of queen, her status is not set in stone as her devious half-brother will do anything to snatch the crown from her. Estelle and those around her find themselves embroidered in a civil rebellion.

Meticulous researched, along with atmospheric court imagery, give readers an opportunity to experience a mediterranean court life during the fifteen century. A fast paced read with engaging and fleshed out characters that I enjoyed reading about.
