The Crown of the Queen
A Twelve Kingdoms Novella
Dafne Mailloux, librarian and temporary babysitter to the heirs to the High Throne of the Twelve – now Thirteen – Kingdoms, finds it difficult to leave the paradise of Annfwn behind. Particularly that trove of rare books in temptingly unfamiliar languages. But duty calls, and hers is to the crown. It’s not like her heart belongs elsewhere. But how can she crown a queen who hesitates to take the throne?
This novella will be part of a duology called For Crown and Kingdom, which will also contain a novella by Grace Draven.
For Crown and Kingdom (The Crown of the Queen) will release on May 24, 2016 and will be available in digital format and print.
Buy links will be added to the bookpage once available: http://www.jeffekennedy.com/for-crown-and-kingdom/
Magic has broken free over the Twelve Kingdoms. The population is beset by shapeshifters and portents, landscapes that migrate, uncanny allies who are not quite human…and enemies eager to take advantage of the chaos.

Also... there’s something about the girls’ night out. For these three it’s a pause along the journey, a time away from their usual preoccupations and responsibilities to confide those things they might not in the light of day. We carry those secrets around, deep in our hearts, and rarely speak of them to anyone because they might sound silly or shameful or ... simply not that big of a deal to someone else. But among other women, in that bubble of space and time, we can talk with more honesty and trust.
A little Branlian whiskey never hurts either!
“Not a bit,” Zynda agreed. “Though I don’t think Jepp wishes to.”
