The Vanished Queen

Lisbeth Campbell (Author)


When a country is held in thrall to a vicious, despotic king, it's up to one woman to take him down.

Long ago, Queen Mirantha vanished. King Karolje claimed it was an assassination by a neighboring king, but everyone knew it was a lie. He had Disappeared her himself.

But after finding the missing queen's diary, Anza--impassioned by her father's unjust execution and inspired by Mirantha's words--joins the resistance group to overthrow the king. When an encounter with Prince Esvar thrusts her into a dangerous game of court politics, one misstep could lead to a fate worse than death.

Esvar is the second son to an evil king. Trapped under his thumb and desperate for a way out, a chance meeting with Anza gives him the opportunity to join the resistance. Together, they might have the leverage to move against the king--but if they fail, their deaths could mean a total loss of freedom for generations to follow.

Set in a world where resistance is as dangerous as it is important, The Vanished Queen is a tale of the courage and sacrifice it requires to take on a tyrant.

"Campbell skillfully balances action and introspection as rebellion rises against an oppressive regime ... [she] steers refreshingly clear of typical 'chosen one' tropes, instead illuminating the collective effort required for revolution."
--Publishers Weekly

"I could not put the book down ... this is one of the best fantasy books out this year."
--Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth
"A fiercely intelligent political drama ... head and shoulders above other fantasy novels [in its] intricate, pitch-perfect depiction of characters struggling to hold on to their humanity in a world that polarizes and debases even those with the best motives."
--Deborah J. Ross, author of The Seven-Petaled Shield
"[A] gripping read full of politics and passion. Lisbeth Campbell shows us a richly detailed world and then shows us how that world changes: with courage, hope and truth. This is the novel the world needs now."
