Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The eponymous throne is that of the Duchy of Clemen, one of two warring Dukedoms that take centre stage in this medieval epic which spans over a generation. Both the aristocracy and the common people live short dangerous lives threatened by plague, child birth deaths and violence. Thus begins a major new epic fantasy series and as so often happens with big new series you need all the politics and setting of a world. Initially we therefore do not have a lot of the magic that is promised but are introduced to the main players and the various treachery, battles and ambitions early on. It’s 688 pages of grand fantasy in Game of Thrones mould.

If you like Karen Miller you might also like to read books by Joe Abercrombie, George R. R. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss.

Synopsis

The Falcon Throne by Karen Miller

In a divided Kingdom, some will do anything to seize the crown. A BASTARD LORD, rising up against his tyrant cousin, sheds more blood than he bargained for. A ROYAL CHILD, believed dead, sets his eyes on regaining his father's stolen throne. A DUKE'S WIDOW, defending her daughter, defies the ambitious lord who'd control them both. And TWO BROTHERS, divided by ambition, will learn the true meaning of treachery. All of this will come to pass, and nothing will remain as it once was. Royal houses will fall, empires will be reborn, and those who seek the Falcon Throne will pay for it in blood. WITH THE FALCON THRONE, A MAJOR NEW EPIC FANTASY BEGINS.
