A Betrayal in Winter
Long Price Quartet #2
Turns out the common laborer from the previous book is an heir to another kingdom, except heirs figure out who is going to rule by killing off all the competition. Brother against brother. However, this time a sister enters secretly so she can have her lover/husband be the new king. So the sister conspires with outside forces to kill off all the brothers and blame it all on the main character. In the end the sister is revealed and the hidden heir takes over.
So much betrayal, backstabbing, fear, loneliness. It was not enjoyable and I don’t know if I’ll be reading the next book in the series.
