So, I have to say upfront, this book was not necessarily my cup of tea. BUT it could definitely be yours. There is some pretty violent scents in here, and you may get pretty frustrated by the characters at times. But that’s not to say it is not a pretty interesting book. If you like historical reads, fantasy stories, and a strong female character…. Give it a whirl!
Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):
The start of a fierce fantasy duology about three maidens who are chosen for their land's greatest honor...and one girl determined to save her sister from the grave.
In the walled city-state of Alu, Kammani wants nothing more than to become the accomplished healer her father used to be before her family was cast out of their privileged life in shame.
When Alu's ruler falls deathly ill, Kammani’s beautiful little sister, Nanaea, is chosen as one of three sacred maidens to join him in the afterlife. It’s an honor. A tradition. And Nanaea believes it is her chance to live an even grander life than the one that was stolen from her.
But Kammani sees the selection for what it really is—a death sentence.
I received this book for review purposes from NetGalley. ⠀
