There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He'd never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

Christy's Review:

“Come to me, and I will try to love you. I will try to love you, if you but come back.”
Amy Harmon’s unique stories and beautiful writing always blows me away. There is something so special and different about her The Bird and the Sword Chronicles. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not much of a fantasy reader. I’ll dabble in it occasionally, but it’s not my genre of choice. Amy is one of those authors- I’ll read anything she writes. I’m glad I took a chance on something different once again. The Queen and the Cure is an exceptional book.

When I read the first book in this series last year, I was intrigued by Kjell of Jeru. He is a brave man. A warrior and a healer, which is quite the contradiction. Kjell is coming to terms with being one of the ‘Gifted’. It’s not something he’s sure he’ll ever get used to. Kjell is out with his men fighting the good fight to get rid of the Volgar, when he stumbles upon a scarlet haired woman who is in need of help. She is in need of the kind of help only a healer can give. After Kjell helps her, he comes to find she is one of the Gifted as well. She can see things in the future, things that have yet to be.

Kjell finds himself on a journey with this woman who can see bits of the future, but remembers none of her past. Sasha moves along with Kjell back to Jeru, and as their journey goes on, feelings start to develop between the two. This book gave me so many feels. There was angst, heartbreak, and so much beauty and emotion. I want to say so much, but I loved the surprises thrown in.

“I remember. I remember everything. And everything has changed. But I have not forgotten how I feel about you.”

The Queen and the Cure is a book I’d recommend to everyone. I don’t care if you love fantasy, or you’re like me and just love a good story period, read this book. It was a stunning tale that was brilliantly written and I can’t wait to read more from this world!
