Summary (from Goodreads):

Nothing is as it seems in the kingdom of Antora. Kestra Dallisor has spent three years in exile in the Lava Fields, but that won't stop her from being drawn back into her father's palace politics. He's the right hand man of the cruel king, Lord Endrick, which makes Kestra a valuable bargaining chip. A group of rebels knows this all too well -- and they snatch Kestra from her carriage as she reluctantly travels home.

The kidnappers want her to retrieve the lost Olden Blade, the only object that can destroy the immortal king, but Kestra is not the obedient captive they expected. Simon, one of her kidnappers, will have his hands full as Kestra tries to foil their plot, by force, cunning, or any means necessary. As motives shift and secrets emerge, both will have to decide what -- and who -- it is they're fighting for.

Jennifer A. Nielsen introduces us to an unforgettable new heroine in this epic tale of treachery and intrigue, love and deceit.

Amazon “Book Depository


This book sounds so interesting! It’s been a while since I’ve read a fantasy, and now that it’s winter, I feel like getting back into the genre. I am intrigued by the main character’s father being on the evil side and the rebels searching for the only weapon that can kill the king. I can’t wait to see how Kestra’s alliances change, and I am hoping for plenty of suspense. I am eagerly awaiting the release of The Traitor’s Game this February!
