"The Onyx Crown" by Alan Hurst

| Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube | From the searing heat of the desert to the vastness of the savannah, The Onyx Crown tells the story of Jorann, Gesi, and Sania, three children who grow up in a pre-medieval era of wars and successions, not fifteen years after the greatest king in the history of the continent has been deposed and assassinated.

Many miles to the east, Gesi is despairing of his life in East Rhydor as a commoner companion to Zoe and Zadeemo, the twin siblings of the tribal prince.
