    In a family torn apart by poverty and violence, Hekat is no more than an unwanted mouth to feed, worth only a few coins from a passing slave trader. But Hekat was not born to be a slave. For her, a different path has been chosen. It is a path that will take her from stinking back alleys to the house of her God, from blood-drenched battlefields to the glittering palaces of Mijak. This is the story of Hekat, slave to no man.

    Overall

    I'm tired of reading about ugly characters or authors who fill pages and books full of preaching. I like my stories in the manor of David Eddings Mallorean series, CS Lewis, Sharon Shinn, Louise-Bujold, Maria V Snyder & early terry Goodkind. These stories have complex characters with lots of good fellowship who are different from each other. The kind of people I'd want to go on a trip with, This book had only two character types and they never learned anything. They were either spiritually & morally ugly fanatical people or good but stupid and blind.
    Miller's other series was better, I might read the next in the series if I can get it at the library and can;t find anything else. However I felt like both series spent a lot of time with characters explaining themselves or just haranguing to get to the required # of pages.
