An ancient curse broken, a new prophecy foretold, and a grimoire of dark Druidic magic.
After a year of unimaginable violence, magic, and an all-consuming love that has followed her through countless incarnations, Julia Harrison has not only come into her own as a magic Bearer—far surpassing those women in her bloodline who came before her—but is about to start down a path that can end in only one of two ways: with her fulfilling her prophesized role as Sovereign, chalice of the World Ruler; or with the death of everyone and everything she holds dear at the hands of Cassius Longinus, The Child of Rome, in his brutal and inexorable quest to finally achieve true immortality.
Mantle of the World Ruler—Book Two of the Lost Wells Trilogy—begins directly after the events of its predecessor, and with it, author Kate Gateley draws the reader right back into the romantic, magical, and often terrifying world of Bearers and Wielders, Knaves and Wraiths, and Domhnall O’Brien, cursed by choice to follow his love through one life after another until they can save each other at last.
With the Sovereign standing tall, the World Ruler too must bear his crown…
…Darkness reigns where light cannot, and from its root, the land will rot.
