Betrayal (The Twins of Saranthium #2)
Author: Lara Morgan
Genre: Fantasy
Release Date: March 1, 2010


From fantasy writer Lara Morgan comes the second in her engrossing, enchanting, exciting Twins of Saranthium trilogy, perfect for curbing Game of Thrones withdrawals.

Shaan and Tallis have escaped from the fallen god, Azoth, but his dark shadow stretches over the enslaved people of the Wild Lands and the terrifying army of human-serpent warriors. War is coming, but the Council of Nine turn from the twins and their tales of Azoth’s menace, focusing instead on a war on the Free Lands.

Meanwhile, the Four Lost Gods have awoken, ready to reclaim the Birthstone currently in Azoth’s possession. But rather than the saviours Shaan and Tallis needed, the Four begin to exert terrible control over the people of Saranthium. With Tallis struggling to control the growing power within, and Shaan attempting to resist the pull of Azoth, the twins are under assault from all sides. Victory may still be possible, but only through a devastating act of betrayal.
Dream Cast: 

Casting the lead roles of Shaan and Tallis was something I was going to do but found impossible. They are such strongly drawn characters in my head that I couldn’t find any actors who came close to my vision for them.  The supporting cast however is another matter and I had great fun researching who could play some of my most favourite characters.   

Viggo Mortensen to play Rorc the commander of the armies of Salmut and major player in the twins lives. There was no contest in deciding who to cast for this character, in fact Viggo was always the actor I modelled Rorc on ever since I saw him play Aragorn in Lord of the Rings. Really, what’s not to love about a man who gets better looking the dirtier he gets?


Chris Hemsworth to play Balkis.  Serpent rider, rich boy and all round lady killer, Balkis has to be in possession of certain – cough - attributes. So Hemsworth whose, tall, blonde, blue eyed and has the physique of a Greek god is a natural. Plus he’s Australian and I considered it my duty to thoroughly research the pics of him for this one. It's a tough job but.....


Elizabeth Mitchell to play Tuon; Shaan’s oldest friend, courtesean and spy.  Queen of the small screen, Elizabeth has been in a raft of sci fi shows and can play it tough or seductive, just the right combination for Tuon. 


Richard Armitage to play Azoth. It takes something special to play the two thousand plus year old god and ancestor to the twins. He’s got to be handsome and charming yet capable of immense cruelty and ruthlessness and I think Armitage could pull it off. Remember him as Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood or the ultimately doomed and disturbed Lucas North in Spooks? Forget playing dwarves, Richard, it’s gods your destined for.

Lara Morgan has loved fantasy since her mother first read her The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings (those Dark Riders still give her the shivers) and her book shelves are stacked precariously with more fantastical adventures than she will probably be able to read in one lifetime. She loves feisty heroines and heroes with depth and prefers to create villains in shades of grey rather than black and white, taking a tip from one of her personal heroes Joss Whedon who said: “All villains believe they are the hero of the story”.

Lara also writes for young adults and you can find her online at www.lara‐ or blogging when she has time at and on twitter @Lara_Morgan.

She lives in Geraldton, Western Australia, with her husband and son.
