Publisher's Summary

The fate of an empire lies in the hands of one untested princess.

Princess Natasia is the eldest child of the Emperor Andreth, ruler of the Four Realms. If she was a boy, she’d be the unquestioned heir to the throne. But as a girl, her main duty in life is to marry someone her father can shape into his successor.

Everything changes when an unknown, would-be assassin nearly takes Tasia’s life. Someone wants to destabilize the Empire - but who? Was the assassin aligned with the power-hungry Western lords, who have always rebelled against the Emperor? Was he hired by the barbarians in the East; who are fighting against the Empire’s subjugation? Or was he a member of the mysterious Cult of Culo?

Unsure of whom he can trust, the Emperor realizes that his daughter might be his best option for an heir. There hasn't been a female heir to the throne in living memory, but as palace intrigue becomes increasingly dangerous, the reckless, rebellious, and stubborn princess suddenly has to face the responsibility of learning to lead. Will she rise to the occasion? Or will the Empire fall at the hands of one of its many enemies?

For fans of epic fantasy...with an LGBTQ twist.

I had a good time (Maybe Spoilers)

First off. I really liked the Narrator. I thought she did a really good job.

Now for the book. All in all I liked the book and have already grabbed the second one to listen to. I thought that Taisia was a pretty good character, even if there were times were she felt inconsistent. I like that she was both spoiled, naive and impulsive but kin, smart and a good leader.

Couldn't stand Myla from the start, did like the accent.

And then there was Joslyn. I liked her even if her role felt a little stereotypical for the main POC character I still liked her a lot. I was annoyed by how others treated her, but I was supposed to be. Was my favourite character in the book.

Plot-wise it is split into three parts and I liked each part a little less as the book moved on, I found the last section of the book dragged on and I had to really push through. If this was a single book I would be left with a lot of plot tangents and holes that don't make a lot of sense, but there is another book so I hope my questions will be answered and sometimes the timeframe was sped up at weird times.

I really liked the Gay stuff, it's the main reason I picked up the book. I loved that both Taisia and Joslyn accept themselves as the gays they are even if society doesn't (Though I thought their society was cool with it till part 3). Taisia only talking about love in regards to the main female LIs and Joslyn never mentions being with a man at all. It was refreshing that neither of them was really questioning or closeted. I think Taisia and Joslyn's relationship actually moved a little fast for me but it was still satisfying.

Amazing

This was exactly what I wanted in an epic fantasy series! I'm so glad this story is continuing and now I must read the t
other two books!

I cried, laughed and enjoyed this book being read to me. The narrator was excellent at painting the world into life.

delicious

I so enjoyed this. I love the complexity of characters' flaws and growth. well written queer romance and erotica. without spoilers... if you get to a certain point and worry about certain unfortunate queer tropes happening... just keep reading through the epilogue!! here I go onto book 2.

An actual adult Sapphic fantasy novel!

I've read some of Eliza Andrews' previous works and quite enjoyed them, and stumbled across this while looking for non-YA Sapphic fantasy (which there seems to be an unfortunate dearth of). I was thrilled. I was even more thrilled to discover it was just as amazing as her other works I've read, and beyond thrilled to also discover an excellent performance by the audiobook narrator. Now if you'll excuse me I need to go listen to the second book now.

Awesome story.

Everything was great about this story. The narrator was great also but I had to speed it up bit which is no biggie.

Pleasantly surprised

So glad I bought this book even though I wasn't sure at first. Now I'm very attached to the characters and can't wait to read book 2. Hope there will be a book 3 as well. the sample I listened to had me on the fence but the narrator is actually very good and all her interpretations of the characters really brought them to life and were consistent. I would recommend it for people who enjoy fantasy that isn't too serious but fleshes out character motivations and has fun descriptions of action and good plot twists. And sexual content too of course! Not for prudes.

Love this series

You know a story is good when you get to the end but you’re not ready for the story to be over. Luckily there’s another book already and supposedly a third in the making. Can’t wait 😂
