Summary

Nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award and a Nebula Award

Every empire demands a revolution.

Touraine is a soldier. Stolen as a child and raised to kill and die for the empire, her only loyalty is to her fellow conscripts. But now, her company has been sent back to her homeland to stop a rebellion and the ties of blood may be stronger than she thought.

Luca needs a turncoat. Someone desperate enough to tiptoe the bayonet's edge between treason and orders. Someone who can sway the rebels toward peace, while Luca focuses on what really matters: getting her uncle off her throne.

Through assassinations and massacres, in bedrooms and war rooms, Touraine and Luca will haggle over the price of a nation. But some things aren't for sale.

In a political fantasy unlike any other, debut author C. L. Clark spins an epic tale of rebellion, espionage and military might on the far outreaches of a crumbling desert empire.

I didn't like it

I really enjoyed the first few chapters, but after that, for me, the story dragged.
I gave up halfway through.

Overacted

Reasonably interesting story but overacted which was distracting. Good characters. Okay writting. Works as a self contained story.

Looking forward to the next in the series!!!!

This beautiful, well crafted book has left me reeling, thinking over each decision the characters made and thirsty for more.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!
Loved the narration too.

it's ok

(slight spoilers)
it was okay, but I was a bit put off by the presumption of the main character. she willingly sabotages plans for peace, thinking that actual conflict will save soldiers!?
it's also about empowered women, and yet... and the men in the story are either rapist evil emperor or ...
