That promise leads them into a war for which they are ill-prepared, which threatens the very people they are trying to protect. But war is simple compared to what follows, in peacetime. Meliara is summoned to live at the royal palace, where friends and enemies look alike, and intrigue fills the dance halls and the drawing rooms.
If she is to survive, Meliara must learn a whole new way of fighting - with wits and words and secret alliances. In war, at least, she knew in whom she could trust. Now she can trust no one.

Do they listen before publishing?
First off know that I really enjoy Sherwood Smith's books, but I couldn't make it past 30 minutes with this narrator. It was like listening to a 3rd grader stumbling through a book. Read 3 words...pause...another 3...pause. There was no fluidity or rhythm to anything she read. I'm going to give up and read the book.

Great story, mediocre narration
I loved the story! Though I generally like Emma Galvin's narration, she was not at her best with this one. Too many awkward pauses in the middle of phrases, stilted reading of the old fashioned language. The story was good enough to make up for it, but I'd have loved to hear this done by a narrator (or producer) with more passion for putting out the best product. It seemed like the recording was done in too much of a hurry for it to be smooth.
