Publisher's Summary

The war for Acktar has begun. With his betrayal revealed, former Blade Leith Torren flees into the Sheered Rock Hills, pursued by King Respen's vengeful Blades. Left behind at Nalgar Castle, Renna Faythe tries to find her purpose, yet that purpose isn't what she expected. Brandi Faythe has been torn from her sister, and that isn't all right. If Leith can't rescue Renna, Brandi will take matters into her own hands. War demands sacrifice. Courage falters. Who will find the strength to defy King Respen? Acktar rests on one hope: The Leader is ready.

A solid non-magical fantasy series

Okay, some fans can shoot me, but Brandy was even more annoying in this book than the others. I really, really wanted to love her but I thought she acted like a brat and whined a lot after the first third. I liked her in the first third.
I really enjoyed all the rest of the book. When Brandy wasn't in the story, I found it powerful, emotional, and powerful. The narrator did a fantastic job. I recommend this series.

Warnings: Some extended torture scenes. There is romance and I thought it was done well, there were a couple of kisses, but they were not overly described and were very sweet. Also, there are two characters (one main character and one briefly mentioned) who dress up as boys so they can fight in the war.
