Cheryl Morgan, publisher of Wizard’s Tower Press, has acquired World English ebook and paperback rights to The Tangled Lands, a novel from Glenda Larke.

“Yet there is unease through the kingdom. The mysterious Redweavers, sorcerers from a land called Kanter, enter Talodiac through woven portals, and one desperate man has plans for the young prince.
“Sergeant Hervan of the King’s Guard knows little of such issues. He does know that one wet night he and his men are asked to provide an escort for a young woman leaving the King’s quarters. Presumably His Majesty couldn’t wait for the Queen to recover from the birth, and was seeking diversion.
“Little does Hervan know that this simple task will one day have profound consequences for himself, his family, the King, and the tangled lands of Talodiac and Kanter.”
Cheryl Morgan said: “I have been a fan of Glenda’s for many years. While she works within the well-known field of epic fantasy, she always manages to find a fresh twist to bring to her books. In particular I admire the strong feminist themes that are a feature of her work. I’m delighted to be able to publish her latest novel.”
Glenda said: After four trilogies, I have finally written my second standalone! The Tangled Lands is a story of a land under threat, where those in power hide the truths they know — and many people misunderstand much of what they see. And as always, the inspiration for the story is rooted in our own world. And the heroes? They are us…
