Anne, a beautiful and intelligent young graduate student, has it all. She has a kooky best friend, a fiancé who adores her and is at the top of her class. When one mysterious and charming professor offers her the chance of a lifetime, it’s an opportunity she can’t pass up.
As Anne and the Professor begin work on what promises to be a prestigious manuscript, strange events begin to transpire. Night terrors, fainting spells and unsavory characters who lurk around every corner are just the beginning. Should Anne just chalk them up to paranoia from the unusual subject of her work, or is something more sinister to blame? Unbeknownst to Anne, with each page she types, she delves ever deeper into a centuries-old battle for wealth and power.
Author Steven Szmyt’s stunning debut novel, The Kingdom, blends modern characters with ancient legends. Follow Anne on her journey through immortal battles between deadly creatures as she tries desperately to keep her family—and herself—alive.
