Description

Thorn is such a girl. Desperate to avenge her dead father, she lives to fight. But she has been named a murderer by the very man who trained her to kill. She finds herself caught up in the schemes of Father Yarvi, Gettland's deeply cunning minister. Crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King, she learns harsh lessons of blood and deceit. Beside her on the journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill, a failure in his eyes and hers, but with one chance at redemption. Will Thorn forever be a pawn in the hands of the powerful, or can she carve her own path?

Professional reviews

"Narrator John Keating's bright, lively voice makes this story of a young female warrior who is caught up in political machinations sound crisp and almost cheery. The main character, Thorn, stands out from her fellows as a fighting woman and queen's champion. Keating gives her a distinct Suffolk accent--rounding the sound of i'' into oi--which sets her apart. His depiction of political minister Father Yarvi sounds sly and smart, and unwilling warrior Brand is portrayed as good-natured and forthright. The queens and empresses come across as delicate yet powerful. This is a wonderful audiobook for listeners who enjoy a strong dose of politics with their fantasy, as in Game of Thrones.
