Fortune's Blight by Evie Manieri continues the conflict begun in Blood's Pride. Victory for the Shadari rebels has come at a terrible price. Hardship, superstition, and petty feuds poison King Daryan's young reign, and entire families are vanishing without a trace. Help is nowhere to be found, for their Nomas allies have troubles of their own and the Mongrel, plagued by the sins of her violent past, has disappeared.
While Daryan struggles to maintain the peace, Eofar and Rho are racing to their northern homeland to plead―or fight―for the Shadar's independence. But Norland has changed, and they soon find themselves embroiled in the court politics of an empire about to implode.
Meanwhile, the Mongrel's path carries her deep into Norland's frozen wastes to redeem a promise―one that forces her into the heart of the growing conflict.
As the foundations of the two far-flung countries begin to crack, an enigmatic figure watches from a tower room in Ravindal Castle. She is old, and a prisoner, but her reach is long, and her patience is about to be rewarded....

Picture the fluent prose and flawless world-building of an author such as Trudi Canavan combined with the epic plot and character lists of an author like Martin and you won't be far off . . . Her ability to contrast beauty with brutality, hope with despair and love with hate will secure this novel as one of the year's finest * Fantasy-Faction on The Shattered Kingdoms * Intrigue, betrayal and old rivalries play out against the fires of revolution. Hang on for a wild ride! * Gail Z. Martin, author of Chronicles of the Necomancer on The Shattered Kingdoms * Her ability to insert beautiful descriptions into an action-packed scene is certainly the mark of a talented writer and the series only looks set to become more exciting as the story progresses. * British Fantasy Society on Blood's Pride * A remarkable feat for a newcomer, and leaves me eager for the sequel, Fortune's Blight * Locus on Blood's Pride * Superb * Tor.com on Blood'd Pride * I loved these characters, even though I knew it was going to hurt. Heart-wrenching. Poignant. Lovely * Brandon Sanderson on Blood's Pride * Captivating, dynamic characters with even more intriguing relationships * RT Book Reviews * The characters work wonderfully well and when you get to the meat of the story, the reader is in for one hell of a ride.
