Enter the mysterious and exotic world of Kelewan.… Mara, the youngest child of the ancient and noble Acoma family, is about to take her pledge of servitude to the goddess Lashima when the ceremony is disrupted by news of her father and brother's deaths in battle.
Despite her grief, as the only surviving member of her house, Mara must now take up the mantles of Ruling Lady. But she soon discovers betrayal at the heart of her family's loss, and the Acoma's enemies have brought her house to the brink of utter destruction.

But with assassins waiting around every corner, it might take everything Mara has simply to survive.

Astounding and way above my expectations.

I enjoyed this even more than the Riftwar trilogy and I honestly didn't think it would surpass that at all. The audio sample does not do this book justice at all. I wasn't going to purchase it and I was also unsure of the reader at first but she was outstanding and im so glad I purchased it despite being unconvinced by the audio sample. Seriously good read.

Must LISTEN!

Immense story. Top notch narration. If you enjoy fantasy or a good yarn, this is for you!
Once you have completed this series, try the Saxon Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell.

Feist and Wurts deliver an amazing fiction here, worthy to rank alongside Magician and besting the likes of Tolkien and R.R.Martin.

You will treasure this audio book for years to come. It makes long drives and housework breeze by like the summer winds that caress broad leaf oaks of the seasonal forest.

God bless
