The Queen's Resistance (Queen's Rising #2)

Author(s): Rebecca Ross

Teen Series

Grave Mercy meets Red Queen in this epic debut fantasy, inspired by Renaissance France, about an outcast who finds herself bound to a disgraced lord and entangled in his plot to overthrow the current king.


Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron. Growing up in Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her. While some are born with a talent for one of the five passions-art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge - Brienna struggled to find hers until she chose knowledge. However, Brienna's greatest fear comes true - she is left without a patron.


Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, she reluctantly accepts. But there is much more to his story, for there is a dangerous plot to overthrow the king of Maevana-the rival kingdom of Valenia-and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the throne. And others are involved-some closer to Brienna than she realizes. And now, with war brewing, Brienna must choose which side she will remain loyal to: passion or blood.
