‘A Vicious Game’, the 3rd instalment of the LGBTQ+ saga

today12th January 2024


From the author of the beloved debut A Broken Blade comes the hotly anticipated third instalment of The Halfling Saga: A Vicious Game. Following the success of the second book in the series, A Shadow Crown, Melissa Blair finally delivers desperate fans the next chapter of Keera’s story, which promises even more shocking twists and turns.

With her enemies closing in, Keera and her fellow rebels must rally after a devastating defeat. Keera’s discovery of new powers gives them a fighting chance. But the real twist-of-the-knife is to come, as Keera uncovers a shocking revelation about one of her closest allies.

This dark fantasy, told from an indigenous perspective, acts as a crucial addition to the largely Eurocentric fantasy space. It also centres LGBTQ+ characters, with Keera and Rivens intense romance reaching a fever pitch in the third book, as the contours of their relationship help to unlock Keera’s powerful magic.

Melissa Blair (she/her/kwe) is an Anishinaabe-kwe of mixed ancestry living in Turtle Island. She splits her time between Treaty 9 in Northern Ontario and the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg in Ottawa, Canada. She has a graduate degree in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies, loves movies, and hates spoons.

Melissa has a BookTok account where she discusses and reviews her favourite books, including Indigenous and queer fiction, sapphic books, LGBTQ+ romance, feminist literature, and nonfiction. A Broken Blade is her first novel, and Book #1 in the Halfling Saga.
