A mad king. An escaped slave. One warrior to save the realm…
When Asherah, stripped of both her memory and her dignity, learns that King Sahlgren is responsible for her torment it nearly breaks her. Instead, she leads her fellow slaves to freedom. More prisons are scattered across Parthalan, and Asherah vows to burn them all.
Caol’nir, a warrior descended from the gods, is sworn to serve and defend the king. Then a priestess is murdered, and Caol’nir learns that Sahlgren is to blame. Determined to stop the king, sacred oath or no, Caol’nir joins Asherah’s rebellion.
What Caol’nir doesn’t know is that Sahlgren has promised the demon lord a woman of rare and singular beauty, a woman whose abilities are rumored to rival the sun god’s themselves…a woman Caol’nir knows all too well.
This fantasy story was so addicting right from the very beginning. I was a little leery about the different story lines going on at the same time but it just flows together so well. It’s fast paced, the characters are great and you really start to love them and love their relationships. It’s not insta-love because the characters do actually get to know one another first and some have deep rooted issues that have to be addressed in times. Characters do take it slow, learn about one another and understand that their relationships take time. The ending though throws you such a punch that you don’t see coming. I was very shocked by how it ended and wished it was different, but that just shows that I loved all the characters and the story so much. I definitely want to continue on with this series.
