The Talon of the Hawk
The Twelve Kingdoms #3
by Jeffe Kennedy
May 26th 2015 by Kensington
Paperback 352 pages of fantasy romance goodness
Three daughters were born to High King Uorsin, in place of the son he wanted. The youngest, lovely and sweet. The middle, pretty and subtle, with an air of magic. And the eldest, the Heir. A girl grudgingly honed to leadership, not beauty, to bear the sword and honor of the king.
Ursula’s loyalty is as ingrained as her straight warrior’s spine. She protects the peace of the Twelve Kingdoms with sweat and blood, her sisters from threats far and near. And she protects her father to prove her worth. But she never imagined her loyalty would become an open question on palace grounds. That her father would receive her with a foreign witch at one side and a hireling captain at the other—that soldiers would look on her as a woman, not as a warrior. She also never expected to decide the destiny of her sisters, of her people, of the Twelve Kingdoms and the Thirteenth. Not with her father still on the throne and war in the air. But the choice is before her. And the Heir must lead…


  1. Thanks Lexi! I'm willing to entertain questions on any of that! Lol!

  2. Great post! ;D
    This series sound intriguing. I'll have to check it out.
    Thank you for the recommendation.4

  3. Congrats on your upcoming release, Jeffe!
