Publisher's Summary

As far as bad luck goes, Tiadaria's has been the stuff of legend. After being sold into slavery by her father and accused of a murder she didn't commit, she finds herself facing the executioner. The only thing standing between her neck and the sharp edge of the axe is the village Constable.

After thirty years of loyal service to the Imperium, Royce has retired to King's Reach as the village's Constable. He thought that the frontier town would be the perfect place to rest, relax, and die in peace. He was wrong. With a crooked Magistrate on one hand and a conniving slaver on the other, things are anything but peaceful. To complicate his life even further, the slave with her neck on the block seems to possess the same magic Royce has hidden all his life.

Paying off Tiadaria's bond, Royce takes possession of a slave in a land where slavery is verboten. Now he must teach her to trust him, teach her to fight, and teach her about her unique abilities before they both run out of time. An ancient menace is coming. The Xarundi have returned. They are the most dangerous enemy humanity has ever faced, and they have a thousand years of bloodthirsty vengeance to exact.

    Story
    "So so story ruined by a sub par narrator"
    Would you try another book from Martin Hengst and/or Alexander Edward Trefethen?

    The story itself was okay. Nothing superior. I found it originally as a Kindle Unlimited offering. I liked it well enough, and decided to pick up the audio book at the discounted price. Boy was that a mistake. Talk about a horrible narration.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Stronger female characters.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alexander Edward Trefethen’s performances?

    Definitely not. I can't believe this guy gets paid to be a professional narrator. Overly dramatic for the sake of dramatic. I finally gave up and went back to the paper version.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I doubt it could stand up to that.
