Publisher's Summary

A war is brewing in the Empire.

Not the War in the East - that is a war everyone already knows about, the war that some wanted to end so badly that they murdered an Emperor to stop it. No, this is a different war. A war between the Shadowlands and the mortal world, a war between light and darkness. A war the Brotherhood of Culo has warned about for generations. But no one wanted to listen.

And as war brews, an Empress in exile struggles to regain her crown, and the warrior sworn to protect that Empress fights to make it back to her. Yet the warrior faces an enemy which even she, the Empire’s greatest living sword master, may not be able to defeat: The warrior battles time itself.

And time is running out for the soldiers of the House of Dorsa.

The shadows are coming. Can you hear them?

This is book two in a series of three. Listen to Princess of Dorsa first!

Best Girls

✨💖Joslyn is a cottage core lesbian, because having a sword wasn’t enough💖✨

Tasia also adopts a baby gay, so I’m here for this book⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Can't wait for Empress of Dorsa

This was a great 2nd installment in the series, I got through Princess of Dorsa in 2 days and tore through Soldier in another 3. Amazing series with character you truly root for, and a high-stakes plot that can really rope you in. I love the worldbuilding in this second book, adding detail to stories and character histories we only got hints of in the first one. I really love not only Tasia and Joslyn, but the supporting characters as well (Brick! Linna! Ku-sai! Milo! Ammanta! So many). I wish the author the best so that Empress can come out as soon as realistically possible haha

Took me a few months to finish but I was just being salty

I put the book down after about hour five when it became apparent that Jocelyn and Tashia would spend the majority of the book apart. I was just being salty, there was nothing wrong with the story and a few months later I picked it up again. I’m really glad I finished it because it was an incredible tale. I read another review saying that this story is near plagiarism from the lord of the rings. That could not be further from the truth. This book is completely unique and I eagerly await the next installment.

Sleep the only thing that stopped me from finishing this book in one sitting

If there’s a merciful higher being then there will be another book I’m so invested in this story and how it ends that I’d be crushed if just ended now the characters storytelling and everything about this was pure magic

Adventure and Excitement

Exciting and complex. Well developed character stories within a multilevel storyline. Excellent read. Looking forward to reading the next book.

Fantastic. Highly recommend.

I could not stop listening! As with the first book in this series, I feel that we’ve finally been given a LGBQT storyline that is well written, brilliantly creative/entertaining, and had zero cringeworthy pandering gay moments that are so prevalent in this sub-genre.

Also, I had to admit to my wife that I have a HUGE crush on Jocelyn. When does the movie/tv show come out?!

Perfect suspense, romance and action combo!

Love the build up in the story line. The narrator is brilliant in the voices of each character. Suspenseful, edge-of-the-seat story creation.

So absolutely loved both books. Definitely a must read series.

Frustratingly amazing

To be honest I found myself yelling at my phone as the audible was reading cause I just wanted them to be together so bad. The storyline was great and very very detailed. After the ending of the first book in which I yelled at the ending before the epilogue I couldn't wait to listen to this one. Although frustrated that they could have been with each other, way before the time that they did finally meet again it was great. I wish the series could have continued I would have listened or read the whole series they is how good it was.

I love this series so much

I love that it's far more fantasy than it is romance, but still with romance.
I am so impatient for the next book! can't wait!

Even better than the first

A wonderfully exciting follow-up to the first book. Performance was amazing as well. I can't wait until the next book comes out in audiobook form!

Finally... great Sci-fantasy for LGBTQ

I was seriously impressed with book 1 & now book 2 from this author. I can honestly say that for me, this book was up there with the Sanderson, Fiest, & Jordans of the world - truly. It's sad to think that Eliza Andrews probably won't get the recognition for her work from the rest of the world because it has female characters who are strong, independent, not reliant on men & gay to boot. It was amazing!
So refreshing to have lesbian sex scenes intertwined in a way that denotes passion & love with the strong connection that builds between women. It didn't take over however so it wasn't in your face for the sake of it (which I've come across with other, straight based fantasy books.
The story has twists & turns in ways that aren't completely expected with bad things happening to good people sometimes. The narration is really good too & all in all I'd highly recommend these books. I can't wait for more from this author & hope many others will read/listen to these regardless of the sexualities portrayed but because they're just darn good books.

couldn't stop listening

Soldier of Dorsa was so good I had to keep on listening, I can't wait for the third book. This was full of action , great characters on both sides of good v evil and the emotional rollercoaster Eliza Andrews took you on . The narration by Elizabeth Saydah is also very good with great use of voices and accents . Highly recommended to anyone who likes fantasy fiction and strong female leads

Really loved this book.

So nice to have strong female main characters and especially their wonderful relationship. A well thought out world and plot, politics and magical theme. The narrator put great feeling into the characters and was so understandable and clear. Can't wait for the next one.

oh sweet baby donkey 😅

Fantastic, can't-put-it-down fantasy with relatable, lovable, characters. While the fantasy takes place in a patriarchal society, the central characters are female. Continuing to reveal Joselyn and Tasia's characters, while developing said characters through page-turning, trial-by-fire growth, is Eliza Andrews' gift to the reader.
Tasia and Jocelyn's struggle against the inherent dismissal of their ideas, skills, and birthrights because of their sex is an altogether shamefully familiar one, and woven cleverly throughout the book. I particularly like that though given no establishment to share information like the brotherhood or wise men, females find ways to pass vital information to the sisterhood, nevertheless.
Sequels, in my experience, are usually less than their originals. This book is an exception. This series is increasingly enjoyable with each book.
I am looking forward to book 3, when I will binge all the books.

Keep up the great work!

slightly disappointed but good book

don't get me wrong the book is great and story is ok but its in the gay/lesbian category but with only 2-3 kisses not in life but only in the shadow lands and only in the last 10 minutes of a nearly 23 hour long book they actually get to spend time together. the first book was so much better I think this book just went off course a little.

Love it and need more!

Ok so I just stumbled upon this series and luckily was blessed to have both books available on Audible. But now I’m done and need the third! It’s my first queer fantasy series with WLW action and protagonists and now that I had a taste I need all the books! No spoilers but thank you for the Epilogue Eliza Andrew’s 👍
