Publisher's Summary

Since she was a child, the divine Empress O Shizuka has believed she was an untouchable god. When her uncle, ruler of the Hokkaran Empire, sends her on a suicide mission as a leader of the Imperial Army, the horrors of war cause her to question everything she knows.  

Thousands of miles away, the exiled and cursed warrior Barsalyya Shefali undergoes trials the most superstitious would not believe in order to return to Hokkaran court and claim her rightful place next to O Shizuka.   

As the distance between disgraced empress and blighted warrior narrows, a familiar demonic force grows closer to the heart of the empire. Will the two fallen warriors be able to protect their home?

still my favourite

the reader must fully immerse themselves in the story and will fall in love with both women. I'm itching for the third book.

Amazing!!!

k. Arsenault Rivera is an amazing writer. I've always want to read a fantasy novel with two lead queer women in love but this series, the first book and this one, exceeds whatever expectations I thought I'd have. I can read and re-read these books and still just sucked into the story and I discover something new every time I do. The narrator also does a good job with the voices. She inflicts her voice, doesn't just read monotone like a lot of others. It truly is a performance, a work of art. Don't pass up these books.
