Book Launch: The Councillor

Readings State Library — State Library Victoria, 285-321 Russell St, Melbourne 3000, Victoria

Join us for the launch of The Councillor by local author E.J.Beaton.

This Machiavellian fantasy follows a scholar’s quest to choose the next ruler of her nation amidst lies, conspiracy, and assassination. When the death of Iron Queen Sarelin Brey fractures the realm of Elira, Lysande Prior, the palace scholar and the queen’s closest friend, is appointed Councillor. Publically, Lysande must choose the next monarch from amongst the city-rulers vying for the throne. Privately, she seeks to discover which ruler murdered the queen, suspecting the use of magic.
