We are excited to share with you the cover and the draft synopsis for the 3rd and final book in Kimberley Griffiths Little’s Forbidden Trilogy.
releasing February 2017 from HarperTeen/HarperCollins
She thought she was done fighting. . .
After tragedy strikes on the day they were to wed, Jayden must support Kadesh as he ascends the throne and becomes king of Sariba. But with the dark priestess Aliyah conspiring to control the crown and turn his own people against him, Kadesh’s status as king is at stake.
And then Horeb, the jealous ruler of Jayden’s tribe, and Jayden’s former betrothed, appears at the gates of Sariba. Horeb has amassed a desert army to take back everything that Jayden has worked so hard to protect. And he’s willing to ally with Aliyah and use her dark magic to destroy the kingdom and all of Kadesh’s people.
Jayden knows that the time to be merciful has come and gone, and that some enemies can only be halted by death. In this gorgeous and heart-pounding conclusion to Kimberley Griffith Little’s epic desert trilogy, Jayden and Kadesh must prepare to fight not only for their love, but also for their kingdom and everything they know to be good.
Don’t miss the start of this epic romance.
**Starred** in American Library Association BOOKLIST
In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart.
Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying.
With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.
Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together.
About Kimberley Griffiths Little
When I was a kid I read a book a day, scribbled stories, and dreamed about having my very own book on the library shelf. I grew up in San Francisco, but now live in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande with my husband and sons. I’ve stayed in the haunted tower room at Borthwick Castle in Scotland; sailed the Seine in Paris; ridden a camel in Petra; shopped the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul; and spent the night in an old Communist hotel in Bulgaria, and anything old and musty and ancient with a secret story to tell.
