Reviewed in India on 1 August 2019
My bookstagram feed has been flooding with posts about this book to such an extent that I felt compelled to buy it . With rave reviews pouring in about this epic fantasy , it’s safe to say I had sky high expectations
.
In the West , The queendom of Inys has been ruled by the daughters of the House Brethnet for centuries together . Ead Duryan , is sent under the guise of a lady in waiting to protect the reigning Queen Sabran , since legend has it that as long as a Brethnet Queen sits on the throne , The Nameless One will not arise . In the East , young Tané has been training to be a rider of the fearsome yet equally majestic dragons whom the Easterners worship . To the South , A secret order of witches come together to form the Priory of the Orange Tree . A twist in fate brings all corners of this vast land together to defeat The Nameless One
.
On the cover of this book you will happen upon reviews that state that this is a ‘feminist successor to The Lord of The Rings’ and ‘it deserves to be as big as Game Of Thrones . ‘ I can without a shadow of a doubt concur with them . As a matter of fact , even though I’m shamelessly biased when it comes to these legendary fantasies , ‘The Priory of The Orange Tree’ has managed to make itself stand out owing to all the powerful and extremely well written female leads . Pair that up with impeccable prose and you get yourself a novel which you wish had no end at all even though it spans over a hefty 800 pages . Highly recommended for fantasy nerds such as myself !
