What crime is more unforgivable than treason?
Princess Karena is all that stands between the House of Penmere and ruin. The King, her brother, was gravely wounded in a failed assassination attempt, and once-loyal followers are flocking to the treacherous Usurper's golden embrace.
But Karena knows the surest defence is attack, and will stop at nothing to destroy any rival to her brother... or herself.
Against her, the Usurper musters a vast army to crush Penmere once and for all, but in a war of treachery those closest to you can be the greatest threat.
Note: this is the Abridged Edition of Kingdom Asunder, telling the story mostly from the perspective of the Penmere side. The full edition is 40,000 words longer, and includes the rest of the story as well as the first chapter of the sequel, Traitor's Prize.

About the Author
Thaddeus White writes mostly fantasy, as well as short stories in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror/paranormal genres. In his spare time, he relaxes by reading fantasy and classical history, as well as watching/betting on F1 (with rather mixed results). He has self-published three fantasy novels to date: Bane of Souls, Journey to Altmortis, and Kingdom Asunder (the first part of The Bloody Crown Trilogy). Traitor's Prize, the second part of the trilogy, is due out late 2017. In addition to finishing the trilogy (planning for parts 2 and 3 late 2017/2018 respectively), he is working on two novel-length comedies, Sir Edric's Kingdom, and Sir Edric and the Plague, as well as writing multiple short stories for anthologies. After the trilogy is complete, he plans to return to The Bloody Crown world with more stand-alone novels.
