  • Rule, Ellen Goodlett
    Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 9780316515283, September 11, 2018 (Young Adult)

    “Three young women, each with her own deadly secret, discover that one of them will ascend to the throne of their dying father. Treachery and black magic intermix with sisterly loyalty and ill-fated romance. Your heart will race as quickly as your fingers turning the pages of this smart and captivating debut novel.”


    Nancy Baenen, Arcadia Books (Spring Green, WI)

    “Ellen Goodlett’s Rule is an excellent fantasy debut. You’ll find yourself rooting equally for Zofi, Akeylah, and Ren as they each find their way in the court of the kingdom of Kolonya. I’m 100 percent ready for the next in the series!”


    Buffy Cummins, Second Star to the Right Books (Denver, CO)

    “Being summoned before the Kolonyan throne is never a pleasant experience, especially when you’re hiding treasonous secrets. Zofi, Flo’Ren’cia, and Akeyla all fear the worst, but when they are confronted with a stranger secret—that they are all the daughters of King Andros—their secrets now have far greater consequences than they realized. Proud Zofi, cunning Ren, and empathic Akeyla must compete for their father’s throne, but they aren’t the only ones with secrets. This fantasy thriller, with a vibrant world, a fascinating magic system, and a more twisted political landscape than Scandal, was a great puzzle to solve. The ending was full of intriguing twists, and I can’t wait to see who makes it out alive.”


    Jessica Hahl, The Country Bookshelf (Bozeman, MT)
