Synopsis:


The Bitch Queen returns in The Ikessar Falcon, the action-packed sequel to K. S. Villoso’s acclaimed fantasy debut, The Wolf of Oren-Yaro.


Abandoned by her people, Queen Talyien’s quest takes a turn for the worse as she stumbles upon a plot deeper and more sinister than she could have ever imagined, one that will displace her king and see her son dead. The road home beckons, strewn with a tangled web of deceit and unimaginable horrors – creatures from the dark, mad dragons and men with hearts hungry for power.


To save her land, Talyien must confront the myth others have built around her: Warlord Yeshin’s daughter, symbol of peace, warrior and queen and everything she could never be.


The price for failure is steep. Her friends are few. And a nation carved by a murderer can only be destined for war.

About the Author

K.S. Villoso was born in a dank hospital on an afternoon in Albay, Philippines, and things have generally been okay since then. After spending most of her childhood in a slum area in Taguig (where she dodged death-defying traffic, ate questionable food, and fell into open-pit sewers more often than one ought to), she and her family immigrated to Vancouver, Canada, where they spent the better part of two decades trying to chase the North American Dream. She is now living amidst the forest and mountains with her family, children, and dogs in Anmore, BC.

About the Tour

The tour for The Ikessar Falcon accommodates both book bloggers and booktubers. It will be held over the course of two weeks, which is divided into two parts. Specifically, the first week is comprised of US-based and international hosts (September 14 to 18), while the second week is exclusively for Filipino hosts (September 21 to 25). Priority will be given to Asian, especially Filipino, applicants. The official hashtag for this tour is #DethroneTheDragonlord.

Reviews are required for this tour, regardless of platform. However, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.

Both print ARCs and digital galleys of The Ikessar Falcon will be distributed among all tour hosts, regardless of where they are based. For those who haven’t read the first book yet, digital galleys of The Wolf of Oren-yaro can also be provided upon request.

All tour hosts are required to provide their NetGalley email addresses. This will serve as a precaution for shipping delays, missing packages, among other issues outside our control. Hence, you must have a NetGalley account to participate.
