The eighth book in the Defender series, The Conspiracy, is now out. Here's what it's about:
Prince Alfred has not forgotten his humiliation in front of his father, King William, by “The Defender” and Princess Elspeth. She will follow their father to the throne, not Alfred.
Princess Elspeth fears that Alfred and a few Lords might be plotting to stop her as her father lays dying. She enlists the help of the Defender and his wife, “The Moon Spirit,” to find the plotters and expose them.
Will the Defender and the Moon Spirit be able to uncover the conspiracy against Elspeth? Can their magic prevent a civil war?
Like the others in the series, this is available as an ebook at all the usual places; check the Defender page for store links.
