The Traitors Daughter
by Paula Brandon
Ballantine, $15.00, 455 pp
Release Date: October 4, 2011

This is a debut novel.

On the veiled isles, ominous signs are apparent to those who read them. Magical polarity is shifting, heralding a cataclysmic change in the balance of nature. Jianna Belendor, on her way to meet her prospective husband is kidnapped and held captive at a rebel stronghold. As she begins to sympathize, the physician and rebel sympathizer, Falaste Rione offers a dangerous sanctuary. With plague and chaos gripping the land, Jianna is pushed to her limits, while enemies discover their only hope for human survival is alliance.

Rich in intrigue, bloody revenge and the threat of zombies, the world building is excellent, the characters are complex and believable and hold your interest. A fortunate debut. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
