I got these out of order.
The Thinara King, second novel in the Bronze age of the Child of the Erinyes series starts with Chrysaleon winning the hand of Adriela and the title of Zagreus. Wishing to delay meeting his end, he plots to use an old prophecy to take over Crete and rule with Adriela at his side. When Crete suffers the double tragedies of a earthquake and tsunami, as well as an invasion by a spurned competitor, Adriela's throne and dignity are taken from her as she is kept captive. Adriela must fight: for her life, her home and her husband.
This novel really springs to life. The action takes on a deeper meaning as Adriela grows from a child to a woman and queen. The love triangle starts to deepen and things really heat up. This is a fantastic read! 5 stars!
