The thrilling, darkly addictive conclusion to The Kinder Poison trilogy.

War has come to Orkena, but Zahru battles a darker magic inside herself that threatens any chance at peace.

Praise for The Cruelest Mercy

★ “In this charming, well-rounded follow-up to The Kinder Poison, Zahru’s entertaining, funny narrative voice continues to engage and balance out the otherwise heavier tone of a story that deals with power dynamics, dark magic, horrific betrayals, and social injustice and that offers a thoughtful examination of just what a ruler should be willing to sacrifice for the greater good. A fantastically rewarding sequel.”
