The Claw and the Crowned

Freedom is her desire. Vengeance is his price.

Slip into this scintillating tale of a young royal whose loyalty is torn between the prince she was sold to and the tempestuous knight determined to ruin her.


“Dark and sexy, The Claw and the Crowned is skimming the line between what love demands and what hate allows. Freedom comes in many ways!”
~Angelina J. Steffort, award-winning author of The Quarter Mage

“The Claw and the Crowned took my breath away. It has Sarah M. Cradit’s signature epic worldbuilding and addictive plotline, but it also has a fan-your-face-steamy romance that kept me flipping pages well into the middle of the night. The Book of All Things is a must read fantasy series- it truly has all the things I love in my favorite books.”
~Michelle, @BookBriefs

“I absolutely love the series, Th e Book of All Things. Each story is its own, but they all have a shared history in the world they’re from. Sarah has done it again with The Claw and the Crowned ! It’s a fantastic story with characters you’ll love (and some you’ll love to hate), and let’s not forget the spice. It’s a perfect spicy romantasy to warm those upcoming winter nights.”
~Tralyn Hughes, book reviewer and blogger at Tralyn’s Bookbag

Imryll is unfit to be a princess. Everyone has always told her so. So when the king stuns everyone by crowning her the prince’s consort, her life is completely upended, crushing any lingering dreams of a future away from the suffocating Rhiagain court.

Still reeling from the news, she meets Drazhan, the formidable, mercurial knight who wins the right to be her personal guard. But when he defiantly refuses any show of respect, a dangerous spark ignites between them, one she doesn’t know how to extinguish. Worse, she’s not sure she wants to.

The dark knight’s licentious midnight whispers linger over her, commands she feels inexplicably called to obey. His dangerous promises spread their tendrils over her desperate, failed attempts to embrace life with the prince, her childhood best friend. They take her apart and put her back together, piece by agonizing piece.

Yet she can’t shake the sense Drazhan is hiding something important. He refuses to explain why he surrendered a life of privilege to become her guard. The roaring vengeance burning in his heart, scorching him from the inside out, is a painful mystery Imryll can’t solve.

But she will.

Because Drazhan’s revenge doesn’t just start with Imryll.

It ends with her.
