The Welexia Series 

by Rhys Shaw

Book One

Someone's Daughter

How far would you go to save your own family? Princess Alaria of Welexia must make brave decisions or her family will die slow, agonizing deaths. With the king overthrown, the young princess shoulders a heavy burden. It is her fate.

Book Two

A Daughter Rules

Alaria's journey continues in another action packed story of betrayal, grief, and overcoming obstacles. She must keep those she trusts near, and those she doesn't even nearer. She must also rescue someone close to her, before time runs out.

Book Three

Weight of Her Crown

Alaria navigates the complicated realm of sovereignty, amidst love, loss, survival, and deceit. She is conflicted when it comes to condemning men to death... even those who deserve to die. Will her heart betray her duty?

Rhys Shaw has always been interested in history, dilapidated ruins, stories of deceit and survival. Her belief that women are overlooked in history, or blamed for mankind’s unsavory decisions is the reigning theme behind her gritty realistic historical fiction books. In The Welexia Series, Rhys draws upon her love of story to bring the pages alive with the personal struggles and pain of strong female characters, taking us on their journey to overcome and thrive.

In the modern world, Rhys shares her home with a few furry friends and a less furry spouse. She can often be found with her nose in a book, or taking a walk - though not at the same time.

What readers are saying

★★★★★ “This dark story is written exceptionally well and the tension is a constant roller coaster of emotion. I couldn't put it down.”

★★★★★ “Rhys Shaw’s powerful novel is a tale of violence against women set in a medieval fantasy world resembling a twisted fairy tale out of 14th Century Europe.”

★★★★★ “Diving into this world of castles, treachery, and royalty was a wonderful escape. Of course, now I can’t wait to see what happens next. This story reminded me of the Game of Thrones only less violent. I appreciate the dialog and dialect befitting medieval royalty.”
