Summary

"Propulsive and intricate, Greta Kelly has constructed a world of twisting politics and thrilling magic following a heroine who is both clever and uncompromising, but ultimately, has heart. A stellar read that I thoroughly enjoyed." (Emily Duncan, New York Times best-selling author of Wicked Saints)

A princess with a powerful and dangerous secret must find a way to save her country from ruthless invaders in this exciting debut fantasy, the first novel in a thrilling duology packed with heroism, treachery, magic, and war.

Askia became heir to the Frozen Crown of Seravesh because of her devotion to her people. But her realm is facing a threat she cannot defeat by sheer will alone. The mad emperor of the Roven Empire has unleashed a horde of invading soldiers to enslave her lands. For months, her warriors have waged a valiant, stealth battle, yet they cannot stop the enemy’s advancement. Running out of time, she sets sail for sun-drenched Vishir, the neighboring land to the south, to seek help from its ruler, Emperor Armaan.

A young woman raised in army camps, Askia is ill-equipped to navigate Vishir’s labyrinthine political games. Her every move sinks her deeper into court intrigues which bewilder and repel her, leaving her vulnerable not only to enemies gathering at Vishir's gates, but to those behind the palace walls. And in this glittering court, where secrets are worth more than gold, Askia fears that one false step will expose her true nature. For Askia is a witch gifted with magical abilities - knowledge that could destroy not only her life but her people. As her adversaries draw closer, Askia is forced to make an impossible choice - and no matter what she decides, it may not be enough to prevent Seravesh’s fall.

Encapturing

Askia's journey as she learns to navigate life at "court" is extremely engaging. She learns politics, the intricacies of her magic, and hones her soldier skills while gaining allies all around. The cliffhanger ending ensures I will be reading The Seventh Queen. I wish all characters were a little more three dimensional, the deaths of certain people would have made a bigger impact.

For this particular book, I felt the performer was too polished and proper. Askia is foremost a soldier and I feel that her voice was lost.

Fantastic Narration

The Narrator is AWESOME. She is EXACTLY how I imagined the main character to sound and does a great job as well. There is a tad more romance than I would like personally, but it doesn't detract much from the overall story itself. Overall, a great read!
