Summary
In a feminist fantasy epic, a revolutionary spell gives women the ability to control their own fertility-with consequences that rock their patriarchal society to its core. "A compulsive read, riveting characters, life-or-death stakes . . . a smashing book!"-Tamora Pierce When a nobleman's first duty is to produce a male heir, women are treated like possessions and bargaining chips. But as the aftereffects of a world-altering spell ripple out physically and culturally, women at last have a bargaining chip of their own. And two women in particular find themselves at the liberating crossroads of change. Alys is the widowed mother of two adolescent children, and the disinherited daughter of a king. Her existence has been carefully regulated, but now she discovers a fierce talent not only for politics but also for magic-once deemed solely the domain of men. Meanwhile, in a neighboring kingdom, young Ellin finds herself unexpectedly on the throne after the sudden death of her grandfather the king and everyone else who stood ahead of her in the line of succession. Conventional wisdom holds that she will marry quickly, then quietly surrender the throne to her new husband. Only, Ellin has other ideas. The tensions building in the two kingdoms grow abruptly worse when a caravan of exiled women and their escort of disgraced soldiers stumble upon a new source of magic in what was once uninhabitable desert. This new and revolutionary magic-which only women can wield-might well tear down what is left of the patriarchy. The men who currently hold power will do anything to retain it. But what force in the world can stand against the courage and resolution of generations of women who have tasted freedom for the very first time? Advance praise for The Women's War "Gloriously paced, plotted, and constructed with such elegance that it ceases to feel like a story and begins to feel like the truth."-Seanan McGuire "A thrilling and heartwrenching tale that explores the issue of body autonomy, with a middle-aged mom as the heroine . . . I couldn't put it down."-Kevin Hearne "A must-read, with gripping action, a complex plot, and engaging characters . . . I thoroughly loved it!"-Melissa Marr "The Women's War is more than a story. It is a roar. And it's magnificent! The wonderful fierceness of its women will steal your breath and your heart."-Sarah Beth Durst
