A Court of Thorns and Roses meets Fourth Wing in this pulse-pounding, enemies-to-lovers fantasy romance—with fae magic, high-stakes trials, and a dark prince—from Booktok favorite author Nisha J. Tuli. 

Ten women. A deadly contest. Only one can win the Sun King's heart.

Lor has endured twelve long years of torment under the Aurora King’s rule. Her only desire is to escape and pay him back for every moment of misery she's endured.

When a surprise release finds her in the hands of the rival Sun King, Lor is thrust into the spotlight as she competes against nine other Tributes for the role of queen. If she wins his heart, she'll earn her freedom and finally get her revenge.

But Lor doesn't belong in the Sun Queen Trials. Not only does she not understand why she was freed, she isn’t a citizen of the Sun King’s court. The other Tributes resent her presence and will stop at nothing to ensure Lor is removed from the competition, permanently.

Now Lor must win, because if she loses, she dies. Or worse, she'll be returned to the evil—and now vengeful—Aurora King.

  • “Utterly enthralling!”
    Rebecca Yarros, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Fourth Wing
  • "The Bachelor set in a fantasy world with life or death stakes, Trial of the Sun Queen kept me on the edge of my seat with gripping plot twists and a delightfully spunky main character."
    Betty Cayouette, creator of Betty’s Book List and author of One Last Shot
  • "I picked up Trial of the Sun Queen and was hooked from the very first sentence. This world is gripping, the plot exciting, and I loved the main character so much that I was rooting for her from the start. Nisha created a series that is addicting and visceral, with the perfect amount of spicy romance. One of my all time favorite fantasy romance reads!"
    Raven Kennedy, International bestselling author of the Plated Prisoner series
  • "Magical, action-packed, steamy, intricately plotted, laden with heart-wrenching moments and heart-pounding twists—Trial of the Sun Queen is nothing short of a dark, fantastical thrill ride. Nisha J. Tuli's fiery prose brings this richly crafted world and its complex characters to life. Everyone in this book is a hot mess, and I say that with the highest praise. This was such an enthralling read and I can't wait for what comes next."
    Thea Guanzon, USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of The Hurricane Wars
  • "Trial of the Sun Queen was truly a breath of fresh air and had me white knuckling the book until the very last page. I’m on pins and needles to see what happens next!”
    Hannah Nicole Maehrer, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Assistant to the Villain
