Summary

As an empire dies, three warriors will rise. They must ride the storm or drown in its blood. 

War built the Kisian Empire, and war will tear it down.

Fifteen years after rebels stormed the streets, Kisia is still divided. Only the firm hand of the god-emperor holds the kingdom together. But when a shocking betrayal destroys a tense alliance with neighbouring Chiltae, all that has been won comes crashing down. 

In Kisia, Princess Miko T'sai is a prisoner in her own castle. She dreams of claiming her empire, but the path to power could rip it, and her family, asunder.

In Chiltae, assassin Cassandra Marius is plagued by the voices of the dead. Desperate, she accepts a contract that promises to reward her with a cure if she helps an empire fall.

And on the border between nations, Captain Rah e'Torin and his warriors are exiles forced to fight in a foreign war or die.

Adventurous, tense, exciting & fab narration

A whirlwind of a story which built and built. Fantastic pace, colourful characters, a believable history and setting, and, unusually, a different narrator for each of the three POV characters which worked very well indeed. I cannot wait to listen to the sequel.
