Summary

The Scourwind family legacy brought the empire to the height of its power and prosperity and defended it against all enemies. Now one man's machinations aim to shift the balance of power - with violent and devastating consequences.
When the trusted General Corian launches a coup against Emperor Scourwind, he hurls the planetary kingdom into chaos. To secure his claim as ruler, Corian will need the strength of the Scourwind name behind him, and he will stop at nothing to bring under his grasp the young Scourwind heirs, twins Lydia and Brennan. Barely into adulthood, the two are thrust into the crossfire. Battling new obstacles at every turn, they eventually find refuge with Mira Delsol, pirate and former member of the elite empire forces.
As the stakes rise, loyalists, mercenaries, and political opportunists rally around the heirs in a desperate bid to unseat the usurper. But if their risky gambit fails, will the empire crumble into oblivion?

A good story, but heavy on exposition.

while the story was enjoyable to a fair degree, the actuall story is broken up frequently by intense bouts of story exposition. The writer does tell a compelly and interesting tale, having the readers on the edge of their seats a fair few times, this is ofset by the monotonous need to describe EVERYTHING in extreme detail.

I loved the world building

This is world building on Sanderson's level.
You connect to the main characters in the book and cheers them on. The title of the book is misguiding I think as the strong female main character only has a bi-role. There is things that is mysterious and ready for reviling in the sequels. I hope for that at least.

Potential

Story does not get going until chapter 8 or 9. Voice performance is lacking and is the drag on this new series. Very interesting world building and mythology being set up. I will purchase the next book in the series.
