Bloodmark (The Kingsmen Chronicles #2)
by Jean Lowe Carlson
The nation reels, usurped by a shadowy cabal. As war rises, two twins must race against time to find aid before a slaughter begins. This dark and gritty sword and sorcery series from award-winning author Jean Lowe Carlson explores a complex world of treachery, passion, sex, and magic - similar to A Game of Thrones, the Stormlight Archive, the Kingkiller Chronicles, or the Wheel of Time series.
