As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood, eighteen-year-old
Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of
seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, sheâ€™s an unlikely
candidate for even a servantâ€™s position, let alone a
courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in
peace in the Sisterhoodâ€™s mountain temple.
But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalindaâ€™s
life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her
home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her
place among the rajahâ€™s ninety-nine wives and numerous
courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her
guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.
Faced with the danger of a tournament to the deathâ€”and her
growing affection for Devenâ€”Kalindaâ€™s only hope for escape
lies in an arcane, forbidden power thatâ€™s buried within her.
In Emily R. Kingâ€™s thrilling fantasy debut, an orphan girl
blossoms into a warrior, summoning courage and confidence in
her fearless quest to upend tradition, overthrow an empire,
and reclaim her life as her own.
