Publisher's Summary

The Faoii have protected Clearwall for generations. With militaristic order and stalwart discipline, these women have reigned in prosperity. But when her monastery is attacked and her sisters slaughtered, only young Kaiya-faoii is left alive.   

Forced to cope without the long-standing traditions of her Order, Kaiya travels the country on a mission to avenge her sisters and preserve what is left of her heritage. The search brings her not only to dark discoveries and ancient family secrets, but to something she never wanted or dreamed of: a brother she never knew she had.   

Thrust into a war at the heart of a broken empire, the siblings must evaluate the true meanings of enemy, betrayal, and freedom - and the gray areas surrounding each. Kaiya slowly learns the true state of the world outside her monastery's walls, the dangers of the poisonous army that is slowly covering the land, and of her own innate abilities gifted by the Goddess.

Action and the Twists^/!

I enjoyed this book. It is action packed. The ties that Kaya has with her sisters and a family member she finds are very strong and emotional. She learns she was turned over to the order to be protected and in the end has to pull the order together to protect the weak. There are twists that will wow you and somethings that will make you feel betrayal but this story is a must read. Thoroughly satisfying fantasy drama. Narration would have been better with a male voice added but the one was well done as a storyteller. Enjoy.

Great story

The plot had a lot of surprising twists clear up till the end. The protagonist is a beautifully flawed powerhouse, with many strong women (and men) around her that also have their own stories to tell - and they come through loud and clear.
