The Hidden King

& 1 more


Hidden truths. Hidden power. Hidden destiny.

On the shores of a rusty sea, in the streets of a starving city, a young man named Áed scraps to build a life for himself and the makeshift family he loves. Scarred by a trauma he cannot remember, and haunted by the brutal damage it left behind, he has no idea of the courage his future will demand.

When a heart-wrenching tragedy shatters his family, a desperate Áed risks a treacherous journey to seek a kingdom of legend-and a new beginning. But an ancient legacy smoldering within him is about to turn deadly, and neither he-nor the legends-will ever be the same.

Micaela Alcaino, cover designer: Aussie living in London since 2013, I work on crime/thrillers, fantasy, historical, literary, nature, womens fiction, YA & more I'm a graphic designer and illustrator which covers across fiction, non fiction and children's. I was lucky enough to fall into publishing as a designer and have never looked back. I use Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, as well as the classic pen to paper (for drawing and illustrating). I love reading, which also helps when working in this industry! My other passion is travel photography (and just photography in general), so when Im not spending my time designing I'm travelling and taking photos.

"The characters in The Hidden King are the kind of people you root for." -Independent Book Review

"While the secret heir journey to discovering his legacy may not be new ground in fantasy fiction, the execution of Radcliff's story sets it apart from others in the genre. It blends LGBT themes, chosen family dynamics, and darker moments (including torture) into an exciting and wholesome tale. Well-written, focused, entertaining. I especially appreciate the author's elegant and evocative writing style." -International Review of Books

"Radcliff brings the main characters fully alive, enhancing them with intriguing supporting characters, such as Boudicca's conniving stepfather; a lonely prisoner in the castle's dungeon, and the lunatic King Seisyll. The story moves at a fast pace, and readers will find stirring action scenes and an engaging writing style. This enthralling fantasy novel is intended as the first in a series, with Book Two serving as a prequel delving into Aed's early years and his relationship with Ninian. With its unusual characters and compelling story, The Hidden King will be enjoyed by fantasy readers of all ages." -BlueInk Reviews (STARRED REVIEW)

"Radcliff demonstrates that masterful storytelling can prove a book the ultimate virtual-reality device... [She] is truly a writer to watch." -Mimi Black, Let Mimi Say It audio book voice artist
