Publisher's Summary

The A'ras of Nyaesh have a terrifying reputation: skilled swordsmen, owners of powerful magic, and ruthless killers. When they kill her parents, Carth discovers her parents had trained her for magic she never knew she possessed.

She must use the skills they taught to stay alive, discover a way to find answers, and avenge them if she can. Only the discovery of a greater threat than the A'ras forces her to risk herself, for new friends and a home she never wanted.

Entertaining, worth a credit

Any additional comments?

Minor issues, but overall, a really captivating storyline and narration. I have binged through the first and second book...and the first is generally better. The second book feels like the third book should have been released immediately behind it, similar to the first in this respect. If you expect to find any unknowns will be revealed in the second book...nope. However, I don't feel cheated, it was fun.

Worth a credit.

Great start to a series

Lots of unanswered questions and development of a world of intrigue. Looking forward to the next book.

A good start

I finished this book with mixed feelings. I guess the passive aggressiveness around stealing bothered me. I think this author has potential and I will keep reading.
