Genre: Fantasy

Rating: 4.8/5

Publishers Description: In a feudal land, a Kingdom is at risk. With no heir to the fragile throne, its future rests with the powerful members of the dying king’s Council, including Minori, a nightblade warrior, and Kiyoshi, a dayblade healer. The two men are bound by the sword but divided by two opposing principles: rule the land, or serve it. In their challenge for supremacy, a spark has been lit.

Her name is Asa. Her creed is revenge.

Review: This tale follows the lives of three Nightblades’ life journey through a kingdom fraught with violence and political intrigue. One is bent on revenge, another on control and the last on redemption. Their lives merge and interact on stage set for destruction.

This is one of the best novels I have read in a long time. The world building was epic and pales in comparison to the story line, movement and character development. To go into detail is to give the novel away. Trust me when I say that when you can’t wait to get to the next chapter to follow a certain character, then you have found a gem. I only wish I had discovered this author sooner.

The ending sets up nicely for another installment with perhaps a wandering Nightblade under the shadow of a corrupt regime.
