A fantastic and face-paced new coming-of-age fantasy series
Lille spejl på væggen der. Hvem er den mest magtfulde i landet her? The Shadow Queen – Skyggernes dronning er en mørk fantasy-fortælling inspireret af eventyret om Snehvide. Lorelai Diederich, kronprinsesse på flugt, har en mission: at dræbe den onde dronning, der tog Ravenspire- tronen og slog hendes far ihjel. For at gøre dette, må Lorelai bruge den ene våben, hun og dronning Irina har til fælles: magi. Lorelai bliver nødt til at være stærkere, hurtigere og mere kraftfuld end Irina, den farligste troldkvinde, Ravenspire nogensinde har set. I det nærliggende rige Eldr får den næstældste prins Kol pludselig ansvaret for at redde sit kongerige, da Kols far og storebror bliver dræbt af en invaderende hær af trolde. Kong Kol får brug for magiens kræfter, og hans eneste mulighed er at lave en aftale med dronningen af Ravenspire. Han skal være dronningens personlige jæger og bringe hende Lorelais hjerte. Men Lorelai er slet ikke, som Kol forventede – hun er smuk, hård og ustoppelig – og på trods af hans brug af mørk magi tiltrækkes Lorelai af den lidenskabelige og plagede konge. Mens Lorelai kæmper for at være et skridt foran dragejægeren – som hun fatter langt mere sympati for, end hun burde – gør hun alt i sin magt for at ødelægge den onde dronning. Men Irina vil ikke give op uden kamp, og hendes sidste skridt kan koste prinsessen den ene ting, hun stadig har tilbage til at miste ... C.J. Redwine er forfatter til flere succesfulde Y/A-fantasy-serier. The Shadow Queen – Skyggernes dronning er første bind i Ravenspire-serien.
Lorelai, crown princess and fugitive-at-large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father.

When the queen's huntsman - a dragon-shifting king - tracks down Lorelai, sparks fly between them. Can the king overcome his predator side - and can Irina's dark magic be defeated?
