What crime is more unforgivable than treason?
Princess Karena is all that stands between the House of Penmere and ruin. The King, her brother, was gravely wounded in a failed assassination attempt, and once-loyal followers are flocking to the treacherous Usurper's golden embrace.
But Karena knows the surest defence is attack, and will stop at nothing to destroy any rival to her brother... or herself.
Against her, the Usurper musters a vast army to crush Penmere once and for all, but in a war of treachery those closest to you can be the greatest threat.
Note: this is the Abridged Edition of Kingdom Asunder, telling the story mostly from the perspective of the Penmere side. The full edition is 40,000 words longer, and includes the rest of the story as well as the first chapter of the sequel, Traitor's Prize.
