A Betrayal in Winter

By Daniel Abraham
A Betrayal in Winter by Daniel Abraham digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Daniel Abraham delighted fantasy readers with his brilliant, original, and engaging first novel, A Shadow in Summer. Now he has produced an even more powerful sequel, a tragedy as darkly personal and violent as Shakespeare's Macbeth.

As a boy, Otah Machi was exiled from his family, Machi's ruling house. Decades later, he has witnessed and been part of world-changing events. Yet he has never returned to Machi. Now his father--the Khai, or ruler, of Machi--is dying and his eldest brother Biitrah has been assassinated, Otah realizes that he must return to Machi, for reasons not even he understands.

Tradition dictates that the sons of a dying Khai fall upon each other until only one remains to succeed his father. But something even worse is occurring in Machi. The Galts, an expansive empire, has allied with someone in Machi to bring down the ruling house. Otah is accused, the long-missing brother with an all-too-obvious motive for murder.

With the subtlety and wonderful storytelling skill of his first novel, Abraham has created a masterful drama filled with a unique magic, a suspenseful thriller of sexual betrayal, and Machiavellian politics.

“Enjoyed reading this next season of the story. It went in a direction I wasn’t expecting yet - I was surprised at the timing of the events so I’m all in for where it goes next. Not as fast of a read as the first and felt like a bit of a slog in the middle for a bit but I’m glad I stuck with it.”

“Amazing character work, as always. Abraham's plots are always completely organic to the motivations and personalities of his main cast. The way he writes tension and heartbreak and arguments is so much better than any swordfight.”
