From the internationally bestselling author of Nefertiti
and Cleopatra’s Daughter comes the breathtaking
story of Queen Lakshmi—India’s Joan of Arc—who against all
odds defied the mighty British invasion to defend her
When the British Empire sets its
sights on India in the mid-nineteenth century, it expects a
quick and easy conquest. India is fractured and divided into
kingdoms, each independent and wary of one another,
seemingly no match for the might of the English. But when
they arrive in the Kingdom of Jhansi, the British army is
met with a surprising challenge.
surrendering, Queen Lakshmi raises two armies—one male and
one female—and rides into battle, determined to protect her
country and her people. Although her soldiers may not appear
at first to be formidable against superior British weaponry
and training, Lakshmi refuses to back down from the empire
determined to take away the land she loves.
from the unexpected perspective of Sita—Queen Lakshmi’s most
favored companion and most trusted soldier in the all-female
army—Rebel Queen shines a light on a time and place
rarely explored in historical fiction. In the tradition of
her bestselling novel, Nefertiti, and through
her strong, independent heroines fighting to make their way
in a male dominated world, Michelle Moran brings
nineteenth-century India to rich, vibrant life.
