Product description

From the Publisher

From Harry Potter to Game of Thrones, fantasy tales continue to capture our collective imagination across all ages and in ever-greater numbers. Enter Jeff Wheeler’s Kingfountain series. Beginning with The Queen’s Poisoner, the series introduces Owen—an eight-year-old recent hostage to the usurper king—and the mysterious “queen’s poisoner” of the title, whom Owen must learn to trust against all his better instincts. As Owen adjusts to life at court, and as he begins to learn the secrets of the elusive and elegant Fountain magic bubbling within him, he struggles to navigate the culture of lies and shifting alliances into which he’s thrown, all while learning that his destiny may be more important than he ever thought possible.

Through twelve novels and counting, Jeff Wheeler’s storytelling has maintained a singular knack for making everything else in my life rush to the background within a few sentences and then disappear completely. He weaves immersive worlds that forgo the explicit brutality of some popular fantasy sagas in favor of a deft touch that’s as welcoming as it is rife with conniving, trickery, heartbreak, and beautiful, memorable magic. At least until I stop reading, these worlds take center stage in mine.

I should admit that I’ve already read the two sequels to
The Queen’s Poisoner (both due out later this year), in which Owen ages from eight to seventeen to twenty-four years old. And I’m pleased to report that just when it seems as if Jeff Wheeler has achieved an imaginative apex, the story expands to envelop wider lands, richer magic, deeper intrigue, and all-around higher stakes for Owen and the entire realm of Kingfountain. I’m sorely tempted to say more, but I wouldn’t dare rob other readers of the exhilarating experience of getting lost in Jeff Wheeler’s worlds on their own.

- Jason Kirk, Editor
