The stunning finale to the Chronicles of the Bitch Queen trilogy where the queen of a divided land must unite her people against the enemies who threaten to tear her country apart. K. S. Villoso is a “powerful new voice in fantasy.” (Kameron Hurley)

Queen Talyien is finally home, but dangers she never imagined await her in the shadowed halls of her father’s castle.

War is on the horizon. Her son has been stolen from her, her warlords despise her, and across the sea, a cursed prince threatens her nation with invasion in order to win her hand.

Worse yet, her father’s ancient secrets are dangerous enough to bring Jin Sayeng to ruin. Dark magic tears rifts in the sky, preparing to rain down madness, chaos, and the possibility of setting her nation aflame.

Bearing the brunt of the past and uncertain about her future, Talyien will need to decide between fleeing her shadows or embracing them before the whole world becomes an inferno.

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 Dragon of Jin-Sayeng accommodates both book bloggers and booktubers. Tentatively, it will be held from May 3 to May 7. However, depending on the number of sign-ups, the tour might be extended to run for two weeks, which will be divided into two parts: one week for Filipino hosts and another week for US-based and international folks. Priority will be given to Asian, especially Filipino, applicants. The official hashtags for this tour are #BleedForTheDragonthrone and #SandugoSaBayan.

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 Dragon of Jin-Sayeng will be distributed among all tour hosts, regardless of where they are based. For those who haven’t read the first and second books yet, digital galleys of The Wolf of Oren-yaro and The Ikessar Falcon 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.

Sign-ups will close within the week, and the selected tour hosts will be contacted via email. The CBT Twitter account will announce once the confirmation emails have been sent out.

For other concerns or inquiries, you are more than welcome to leave a comment!
