Publisher's Summary

Kyra is the youngest Markswoman in the Order of Kali, a highly trained sisterhood of elite warriors armed with telepathic blades. Guided by a strict code of conduct, Kyra and the other Orders are sworn to protect the people of Asiana. But to be a Markswoman, an acolyte must repudiate her former life completely. Kyra has pledged to do so, yet she secretly harbors a fierce desire to avenge her dead family.

When Kyra's beloved mentor dies in mysterious circumstances, and Tamsyn, the powerful, dangerous Mistress of Mental Arts, assumes control of the Order, Kyra is forced on the run. Using one of the strange Transport Hubs that are remnants of Asiana's long-lost past, she finds herself in the unforgiving wilderness of desert that is home to the Order of Khur, the only Order composed of men. Among them is Rustan, a young, disillusioned Marksman whom she soon befriends.

Kyra is certain that Tamsyn committed murder in a twisted bid for power, but she has no proof. And if she fails to find it, fails in her quest to keep her beloved Order from following Tamsyn down a dark path, it could spell the beginning of the end for Kyra - and for Asiana.

Everything I look for in a fantasy series!

What did you love best about Markswoman?

Everything! This book was fast paced, had wonderful characters and enough intrigue that I didn't want to stop listening!

Who was your favorite character and why?

It was hard for me to chose between Kyra (who is definitely the protagonist) or Rustan (who is equally compelling). Overall Rati Mehrotra does a fantastic job creating compelling characters.

Have you listened to any of Emily Woo Zeller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I'm not sure if I've listened to her before but she did an amazing job with the book! She really made it come alive.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!!

Any additional comments?

This is the first book in a new series. I will DEFINITELY be looking for Book 2 as soon as it is released.

GREAT STORY!

I really feel that Rati Mehrotra got a Bum deal on the reviews. I listen to several Audio books per month and this listen "Markswoman" was a real treat. Well written with some good fights and Romance too. Emily is one of my favorite Narrator's to top it off. I would not be too happy if the next installment was not available but that is the positive part about finding the book long after it was published. Now I can go right into the next installment. I give it 5 stars!

Warning: Cliffhanger

I hate cliffhangers with a passion.

I think the author was so busy setting up for the second book that she didn't bother to give this one a decent backbone. There were things just left hanging because there just had to be another book.

This story had so much to work with, but there was backstory for some characters and not others.

There were big revelations that had no build up--just happened.

Love just happened. I'll admit, the way the author went about it was the perfect opportunity to build up love between characters, but she missed that opportunity. She just went on to the next scene.

This could have been a good wholesome book if she just told the story in one go. There isn't enough material to have a second book.

I'm not going to waste the time on the second just to get an explanation for the first.

If I were you, don't bother unless you're looking for a time filler.

Hard to put down. Love the suspense. Looking for more books that she has written.
