Description

A thrilling new fantasy series full of magic and betrayalA??from Evelyn Skye, New York Times bestselling author of the CrownA??s Game series. Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied around his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of TaigasA??marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona. As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging in the elite groupA??but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, itA??s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group. Taking this risk will change SoraA??s life foreverA??and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone sheA??s ever loved. Love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear themA??and the entire kingdomA??apart forever.

Professional reviews

"In the first of a new fantasy series, narrated by Eileen Stevens, the listener is taken to Kichona, an Asian-inspired land of magic. While on a routine scouting mission, apprentice warriors Sora and Daemon come across an unusual gathering. The two soon find themselves embroiled in a plot against their kingdom and must match wits against a foe long thought dead. Stevens's narration is varied in character voices and tone. However, her slow pacing and the oddness of some of her tonal choices take away from the intensity of the dramatic scenes. These weaknesses make her sound disengaged at times. Overall, Stevens gives a serviceable performance. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
