There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He'd never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

The Queen and the Cure banner

I loved The Bird and the Sword so hard, and I’m amazed that The Queen and the Cure filled me with equal joy. Once again, Amy Harmon spins a tantalizing tale of love, bravery, sacrifice, and magic. She just may turn me into a lover of romantic fantasy after all.

Kjell is the half brother of the King of Jeru, but he has no desire to rule. He is content to be a mighty warrior and captain of the King’s guard. Although the people of Jeru are free to explore their magical abilities, Kjell is hesitant to conjure his newly discovered gift as a Healer.

I was completely enamored with Sasha, the slave girl Kjell encounters who has no long-term memory but an unusual gift. Theirs is an epic love story. In addition to the slow burn of Kjell’s relationship with the mysterious woman, his evolving acceptance of himself is moving.

The story is simply riveting and overflowing with adventure, heartbreak, danger, and devotion. Amy Harmon has created an utterly believable imaginary world that entranced me from beginning to end.

If you decide to listen to the audiobook, I have no doubt that you will be impressed by Steve West’s narration. His deep voice and smooth delivery are perfection, with patient timing, heartfelt emotions, and the believable embodiment of every single character. His British accent isn’t hard on the ears either.
