The Shadowed Throne by K.J. Taylor

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Taylor’s gorgeous writing hooks me again! The Shadowed Throne is impeccably plotted and wonderfully told, figuratively carrying me away into another land. I’m not sure I’ll survive the wait until the concluding volume of the series. Since the groundwork was beautifully laid out in the previous title, The Shadow’s Heir,…

In the land of Cymria, humans and griffins rule side by side. To be a griffiner — the human companion and ambassador to a griffin — is to have both status and dangerous responsibility. Arren Cardockson is a despised Northener, a people conquered and enslaved centuries ago. By freak chance,…
