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

Having taken Orkena’s throne, Zahru prepares to peacefully end the brewing conflict with Wyrim–only to find that her allies no longer trust her without Kasta, and she must face the war alone.

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.”
