Publisher's Summary

In a thrilling fantasy series from the author of the Nightblade novels, revenge becomes a quest for a young female warrior.

In a feudal land, a Kingdom is at risk. With no heir to the fragile throne, its future rests with the powerful members of the dying king's Council, including Minori, a nightblade warrior, and Kiyoshi, a dayblade healer. The two men are bound by the sword but divided by two opposing principles: rule the land, or serve it. In their challenge for supremacy, a spark has been lit.

Her name is Asa. Her creed is revenge.

A fierce nightblade warrior, she's spent a decade in pursuit of the enigmatic general who killed her father in a violent revolt - then mysteriously vanished from all records. Now, her desire for reckoning has led her to the village of Two Falls - and straight into the heart of an impending civil war. Minori and Kiyoshi are vying for her loyalty. And Asa must choose sides.

As fresh betrayals unfold and a new uprising looms, Asa knows that chasing a ghost is no longer just a personal quest for retribution. It's going to alter the fate of the entire Kingdom.

    "weak story and performance"

    Story feels rushed with a lot of assumption on main plot with lead character and not enough time spent on character building. Felt narrator didn't have the depth of voice to portray all the characters.

    "Love the author and the story but this narrator wasn’t up to standard for me"

    I’ve listened to the previous 3 books in set in this world from this author back to back . I found myself captivated and enjoyed every minute of it . The narrator was excellent and the stories were well written and fast paced. I tried this one and just didn’t like the narrator. The story is still good but I found the narrator monotone and impossible to pay attention to. This could just be a personal issue to me with the tone of her voice but I had to return it on audible and will buy a hard copy instead .

    "Okay but was annoyed by the main character"

    The story was good, but the main character was annoying. It was disappointing that she chose the way she did, how weak she was. I guess I would get the next one to see if I dislike her less or to see if she redeems herself for the harm her and her family caused for the kingdom. Not that the place seemed very nice to begin with.

    "Meh. Not similar to others in the series."

    Less depth and more politics. Felt disconnected from others in the series. Never connected with the characters or peoples. Didn’t care which group won or which individuals died. Just never developed more than a flat story and flat characters. Nearly returned based on the narration, but I adjusted to it well enough after the first hour. Would not have finished if I hadn’t liked the others books in this world.
