Publisher's Summary

A former slave fighting for justice. A reclusive warrior who no longer believes it exists. And a dark magic that will entangle their fates.

Ripped from a forgotten homeland as a child, Tisaanah learned how to survive with nothing but a sharp wit and a touch of magic. But the night she tries to buy her freedom, she barely escapes with her life.

Desperate to save the best friend she left behind, Tisaanah journeys to the Orders, the most powerful organizations of magic Wielders in the world. But to join their ranks, she must complete an apprenticeship with Maxantarius Farlione, a handsome and reclusive fire wielder who despises the Orders.

The Orders's intentions are cryptic, and Tisaanah must prove herself under the threat of looming war. But even more dangerous are her growing feelings for Maxantarius. The bloody past he wants to forget may be the key to her future...or the downfall of them both.

But Tisaanah will stop at nothing to save those she abandoned. Even if it means gambling in the Orders's deadly games. Even if it means sacrificing her heart.

Even if it means wielding death itself.

Contains mature themes.

Great listen, slow start

This book was so good. Loved the FMC, loved the plot, the romance and that lead into book 2! It does have a bit of a slow start, I was about half way through until I was really, truly hooked but I’m so happy I kept at it! 10/10

Just listen to it - it's fantastic

Great storyline that is always moving and full of tension, with a strong female lead character a wonderfully created fantasy world and solid narration. Looking forward to the audiobook for the 2nd part of the series and hearing what Tisaanah does next.

I couldn’t finish it

I might try again at a different time but once the male narrator came in I couldn’t get past how he takes a breath every 3 words. I listened to 10 hours and have about 5 hours left but I’m so distracted by his narration that I’m not gonna even try to finish this book.

Excellent Fantasy Romance! So excited for the next one ✨

This book tells the story of Tisaanah. After she escapes 8 years of slavery she heads to a group called The Orders in order to join them and seek help for her fellow slaves still in captivity back home. There she meets Max who becomes her reluctant teacher. Together they train as love and friendship grows between them. And as time passes, Tisaanah discovers The Orders may not be everything she wanted them to be and that war is soon to arrive.

🤍This was a surprisingly wonderful read. Tisaanah is an excellent main character. The majority of the book is from her point of view. She is strong willed(not in a bratty way like you see in many novels). She is brave, smart, and resourceful. She has to fight every step of the way to get what she wants and she never gives up.
💙Max is also great. About halfway through the book, we start hearing his point of view as well which I loved. He has a bad history with The Orders and is grumpy, snarky, and mad at the world(for good reason). Nevertheless, he sees Tisaanah’s strong will and it inspires him as even with all his tragedies he still wants to see good in the world.
❤️‍🔥The romance that develops between them was wonderful. It wasn’t build just on sexual attraction like many of these books tend to do(though this novel does have heat 🔥 in the romance department). The romance developed as they grew to trust, to learn each other, and to open up to one another. It was very well done and there wasn’t any stupid miscommunications or “protecting you for your own good” kinds of annoying interferences like there always tends to be.
💛As for the story. It was an excellent beginning to this series. The majority was training with some action battles closer to the end. We meet some good side characters but mainly stick with Max and Tisaanah. Additionally, we don’t get a lot of world building in this book but I was still enthralled the entire time and eager to see what would happen next. With war coming up, I’m interested to see how Tisaanah and Max will fight and keep control of their powers.

Overall, great read. Highly recommend for lovers of non-YA Fantasy Romance! 🖤

Such a Great Story

I wanted to find a story that had magic in it as a backdrop and wow did I find it! I have no background info on the author but she knocked it out of the park and I will be moving forward to the following books.

I loved how detailed the use of magic and how descriptive it makes the characters feel. My heart raced, I was excited and anxious. I felt like I was there with the characters.

Tisaanah and Max such rich and fleshed out characters. Loved each moment that built upon that relationship. The supporting characters are great too. I hope to learn more about them in the following books.

I highly recommend this book. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it but so glad I took the chance.

When the male narrator jumped in it was a little jarring because but he was okay once I got used to him.

Epic beginning to an epic romantasy story

I'll admit that I initially Dnf'd this because I couldn't get into it. The first ten chapters can drag a bit, HOWEVER... Once she meets Max I was into it. Definitely gives me some Throne of Glass vibes and is a classic romantasy story with a badass FMC.

Our FMC comes from a land where she was ripped away from her family at a young age and sold into slavery. She manages to escape once she is 21 and sails across the sea, basically on the verge of death. When she arrives she seeks out a magical organization with the power to help her free her friends from slavery. However, their help comes at a cost and she is told that she must be accepted into the organization and prove her magical usefulness. She is sent to the last remaining member who is capable of training her. He is ornery, unwilling and altogether unpleasant. And though it takes time she finally wins him to her side and he trains her. This is only the first 1/2 of the story and much more unravels as our FMC gains control over her magic and court intrigue, betrayals and secrets are unveiled.

Things to expect
✅ Badass FMC who is determined and skilled
✅ Banter and playful flirting
✅ Friendship to lovers
✅ Development of feelings over 6+ months
✅ Themes of trauma and resilience
✅ Open door spice but on the mild side

On the audio side... The gal who voices the FMC is awesome. The guy though, sheesh it's like hes running a marathon and has to gasp after every breath. Idk what his deal is but everytime he talked he rushed through the sentences and sucked in air in the weirdest moments! It became really distracting 😳😅

Overall
Story ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Spice 🌶️
Audio 🎧 *gasp* 🎧 *gasp* 🎧 *gasp* (sarcasm - 3/5 because she was awesome and mainly narrates like 67% of the book)

4.5 Stars 🌟

This is the second book that I have read from this author, with that first I read being the first and only book out in her newest series. That book was her brand new series (The Serpent and the Wings of Night (Crowns of Nyaxia Book 1)) which COMPLETELY knocked me off my feet. I immediately looked to see if she had anything else out and found this series so I did not even hesitate to hit the buy button. (and thank goodness it was a completed series)

Thankfully, this book series does have an audio version out as well (the other did not) so I enjoyed alternating between listening and reading.

The tale is about a girl who is bought, stolen, kidnapped...(I'm not even sure what you would call it) by slavers when she is a young girl. She is taken away from her home and family and is the slave of the leader of the largest city in Threll for many years. He once told her when she asked as a child that she could "buy" her freedom with an amount of money that was completely unattainable for someone in her position - she never forgot that and he never expected that to occur.

This female lead, our MC Tissaanah - is an amazing lead female character. She is strong in spirit and will, determined, smart, compassionate...everything that makes you want to root for her. Her life is NOT easy. When she attempts to buy her freedom, let's just say things do not go well.

Without going into spoilers, this story then becomes about her determination to get strong enough to come back and save the other slaves, but especially her best friend that she left behind. Tissaanah has some magic but has never been trained. She finds her way - while dying of injuries- to the land where slaves are free and magic rules. She does not know the language, has EVERYTHING against her and the story really starts from there.

The world building, while parceled out slowly is interesting. The characters are also slowly developed and we begin to learn that all is not what it seems. The other lead - the male MC Max - is a very layered character and there is SO much more to him than originally portrayed.

This book kept my attention from the very beginning. Yes, there are moments of info dumps, but those do not happen too often. I enjoyed the dual narration and I am excited (and if I'm being honest...a little scared) to see what is going to happen next.

So, do I recommend this book?

Absolutely. What are you waiting for?

Narrators are not great

The story is superb!!! Love love love the characters and the plot, however, the narrators are…weird. The female narrator is a thousand times easier to listen to than the man. She makes the MC’s voice super high pitched which is a bizarre choice, and all her male characters sound constipated and growly in a cringy way. But overall, her narration is decent.

The male narrator takes a gasping breath every couple of words like he’s talking way too fast!!! It’s extremely annoying and grating. Sometimes he even does it every other word. When he’s trying to do the female voices he doesn’t do the gasping thing because he actually has to slow down a bit, I think. I do like the way he does the different character voices, but I cannot stand the loud, sharp inhales every few words.

I’m powering though since the story is SO GOOD, but I almost DNF’d it because of the man’s narration.

Wow! thoroughly enjoyed this book.

It takes a lot to impress me when reading a fantasy book these days after reading works from authors like Sanderson, Weeks, and Jordan. I really enjoyed this well written book, I can't wait to start the second in the series.

Story so well written, think it needed to be audio

I loved this storyline. The audiobook format really gave something special to it, that I have a feeling wouldn't have come across as well if i had read it as a hard/digital copy.
Wane's performance was magnificent, probably the best narrator I've come across for an audiobook. Calley, not so much. the way he gasps before so many of his sentences was really jarring and if the storyline hadn't been so enthralling I would've stopped listening.

Surprisingly good.

I heard about this book series on a FB reader group that I follow. I have to admit, the cover art caught my eye first and the blurb about the book got me second. I love a good fantasy book that has unique world building and well-rounded characters that aren't 1D. Not sure if it's because I went in with no expectations that I was pleasantly surprised by this book or whatnot, but I liked it. The narrators are new to me, but they did a pretty decent job, however I did have to listen to it at a faster pace otherwise it feels too slow for me. This is not a negative, just a personal preference. Pros: -Character creation, growth of self and connected relationships -World-building is unique and is steadily developed as the MC's story unfolds -Emotional moments that shape the characters are revealed to enhance the story and not as a means to move the plot forward. -Both the reader and the MC's world-view are shared; the reader learns as the MC learns -the story progression is steady and moves at a good pace. The story isn't ever stagnant due to all of the moving parts that are happening around the MC -romance is present, but it isn't all in your face. This is a slow development that makes the enemies-to-lovers trope believable. In this case, the slow build/burn was a nice touch and came naturally as the FMC and MMC interact. This book is appropriate for all audiences, well mostly, except if you're reading to a young child due to the violence, but I can comfortably say that it's good for 12+ since the violence/sex aspects are not overly graphic. I don't think there are many authors out there who can created a strong lead who didn't annoy me half way through, or crafted a book that I liked enough to leave a review.. probably why I'd be a horrible book-pusher.. but I am looking forward to the next audio release.
