La Reyna (Book Two of the Trastámara Series)

By K.M. Guerin

General fiction, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


Alionor d'Aragó i Sicília is Queen Consort of Castilla, León y Galiza as wife of King Juan I. The son of a conqueror, Juan trusts no one, not even his wife of five years, whom he often humiliates as the mood strikes him. Alionor often finds herself on the wrong side of her husband's temper as he battles disloyalty at every turn, his terror exacerbated by the looming threat of a man who styles himself the true King of Castilla: John of Ghent, a member of the English royal family and married to the elder daughter of the man who Juan's father had deposed, and murdered by his own hand, over a decade prior. When the rebellion her husband fears seems to come to fruition, King Juan relocates Alionor and their children out of Castilla and back to her homeland, but she cannot stay hidden for long. A lone rider from the front lines carries the message she fears, and Alionor must make a choice - stay safe in relative obscurity, or return to her adopted homeland - and weather its consequences. Is Alionor ready to accept her destiny and take her place as LA REYNA?

By the time she was three years old, K.M. Guerin had already worn out two VHS copies of the movie "The Little Mermaid", and was well onto ruining a third. Throughout her life, the same all-in, borderline-obsessive passion would remain a constant. She became interested in the Middle Ages during her time in high school theatre, due to the overwhelming love of the local Renaissance Faire by her peers. K.M. Guerin has lived in Michigan her entire life, now with her husband, son, Kitty, and Boomer-dog. When not writing or spending time with her family, she enjoys reading, baking, Tim Hortons, watching the Red Wings, and pretending the dishes in the sink don't exist.
