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.
Blades of the Fallen, Tome 1 : Nightblade's Vengeance
"Asa watched the faces of the lords as they entered the cemetery. She wasn't impressed. In her mind, a leader was someone who was willing to make any sacrifice to protect his people, and she didn't see that from these two. They had been born into power and didn't understand how to wield it well. She saw this on their faces as they entered the cemetery."
Un roman de fantasy qui sort des sentiers battus. J’ai beaucoup aimé le fait qu’il y est réellement plus d’héritier de la couronne. Cela a permis au récit de s'enrichir. Asa est un personnage complexe tiraillée par sa vengeance et son courage qui font d’elle une exemplaire. Spoiler(cliquez pour révéler)Le fait qu’à la un elle tue Kiyoshi est très intéressante puisque d’habitude les vengeances des personnages sont rarement réalisées par eux-mêmes, généralement ils finissent par faire le Bien. Hâte de lire la suite !
