A Coalition of Lions

'“A gorgeously imagined and wildly exciting historical narrative, combining Arthurian legend with the kingdom of Aksum (Ethiopia). While Wein mines the inexhaustible treasury of Arthur, as she did in her first installment, The Winter Prince (1993), she makes it very new.” —Kirkus Reviews “This sequel to The Winter Prince is a gripping tale of danger, nobility, power, and love. The exotic culture and well-developed code of honor of the Aksumite court give this post-Arthurian/ancient-Ethiopian fusion its striking flavor. With her thorough command of historic characters, a grand scope, and a swift-paced, heroic plot, Wein has laid out an appealing and sumptuous literary banquet.” —The Horn Book “Steeped in historical and literary details and informed by detailed endnotes, the novel lays down a challenge to motivated readers.” —Publishers Weekly “This is a complex, but beautifully written story . . . for teens who enjoy historical fiction, it will be a rewarding experience.” —School Library Journal   '
