Summary

Naia dreams of becoming a Jaihar Blademaster, but after assaulting a teacher, her future seems ruined. The timely intervention of a powerful stranger suddenly elevates her into elite Upper Grounds training. She has no idea that the stranger is Dal Gassan, head of the Daljeer Circle. Seventeen years ago he witnessed the massacre of Challimar’s court and rescued its sole survivor, a baby girl. Gassan plans to thrust a blade into the machinations of imperial succession: Naia. 

Disguised as the legendary Princess Xarimet of Challimar, Naia must challenge the imperial family and win. Naia is no princess, but with her desert-kissed eyes and sword skills, she might be close enough.

Not quite my style, but good

I can't say that this book was my style. However, the book had an interesting storyline and I thought the reader did a good job.

The downside of the book was the way every moment was stretched out to infinity. After the first few chapters it felt overwrought. The storyline was interesting, but very predictable....I have to admit that I was hoping for a massive twist at the end...and it never came.

With all that said, I can understand someone rating this book very highly...and I can't fault them severely for that. As I said, it just wasn't my style of writing.

Fantastic Book

OMG, this unexpected selection late one night blew my mind. I could not stop listening! There was great suspense and character build up in all the main characters. The world building was excellent and drew me deeply in to the story. There was surprises. This almost feels like an Anastasia type of story with powers. Good all the way to the end.
