The Priory of the Orange Tree

By Samantha Shannon
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens.


The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction—but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

Length: 25 hours and 52 minutes

Thumbs Up“This was an interesting read but definitely not what I expected, maybe I went into reading this one with higher expectations than I should have”
Slightly Smiling Face“The story, the world, the characters, everything was very catchy and I really liked it, but I’ve been SO busy that it took me a long time to read it and I feel like that might have influenced my rating, if I had read it all in a normal fluid reading it would probably be higher. I’m really excited for what comes next because I thought the nameless one was the biggest threat, but since they were able to send him into captivity again so easily, something else is going to be the cause of problems, I’m assuming this is going to be a Game of Thrones situation, the nameless one is like the white walkers while the real threat are politics, religion, and so on. I thought I was crazy and reading too much into Sabran and Ead’s relationship, I was really glad to know I wasn’t crazy and that it wasn’t just friendship between them, it will be hard but I hope they have a happy ending. Can’t wait to see Ead as the prioress and I hope we get to see her teaming up with Tané again.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“For fans of Game of Thrones and Lord of The rings comes an epic high fantasy about a broken world having to come together in desperate times to save them all. Shannon creates a lush and brilliant world that sucks you in with political intrigue, well written and morally grey characters, romance and so much more. This is my third reread of the book and it is one of my all time favesThis immediately became one of my favorite books of all time.”
