Omg this book was freaking awesome!!!! It's the perfect crossover for Young Adult and Adult fantasy lovers! Emily has written a beautifully imagined world full of magic, suspense, swoon-worthy romance, killer fight scenes (I swear I wanted Kali to scream "I am Spartacus" a few times lol) and best of all amazing friendships! I adored Kali and Deven and so many of the other characters, especially Deven's brother I need to get to know him better!!!!As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.
But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.
Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.
In Emily R. King’s thrilling fantasy debut, an orphan girl blossoms into a warrior, summoning courage and confidence in her fearless quest to upend tradition, overthrow an empire, and reclaim her life as her own.
Man this book kicked my ass! In a very good way, and now I am going to be struggling until Fall of 2017 waiting for the next book!
