Summary

In a thrilling fantasy series from the author of the Nightblade novels, revenge becomes a quest for a young female warrior.
In a feudal land, a Kingdom is at risk. With no heir to the fragile throne, its future rests with the powerful members of the dying king's Council, including Minori, a nightblade warrior, and Kiyoshi, a dayblade healer. The two men are bound by the sword but divided by two opposing principles: rule the land, or serve it. In their challenge for supremacy, a spark has been lit.
Her name is Asa. Her creed is revenge.
A fierce nightblade warrior, she's spent a decade in pursuit of the enigmatic general who killed her father in a violent revolt - then mysteriously vanished from all records. Now, her desire for reckoning has led her to the village of Two Falls - and straight into the heart of an impending civil war. Minori and Kiyoshi are vying for her loyalty. And Asa must choose sides.
As fresh betrayals unfold and a new uprising looms, Asa knows that chasing a ghost is no longer just a personal quest for retribution. It's going to alter the fate of the entire Kingdom.

weak story and performance

Story feels rushed with a lot of assumption on main plot with lead character and not enough time spent on character building. Felt narrator didn't have the depth of voice to portray all the characters.

Predictable and difficult to get through

The biggest problem for me was the narrator. Her performance keeps ending after every second sentence followed by n couple of seconds of silence. It was really jarring.

My second issue is events in the story itself. Some characters act out of character or logical reasoning near the end and it seems like the writer hurried to end the book off just to get it done.. The story was really poor.

I'll pass on the rest of the series.

Basically, this is a story of Japan in the 1800's with the Samurai's being who they are because of the "sense." Enter the Meiji period... Not at all what I expected. The story lacks depth and is very predictable.
