    Description

    The Scourwind family legacy brought the empire to the height of its power and prosperity and defended it against all enemies. Now one man's machinations aim to shift the balance of power - with violent and devastating consequences.

    When the trusted General Corian launches a coup against Emperor Scourwind, he hurls the planetary kingdom into chaos. To secure his claim as ruler, Corian will need the strength of the Scourwind name behind him, and he will stop at nothing to bring under his grasp the young Scourwind heirs, twins Lydia and Brennan. Barely into adulthood, the two are thrust into the crossfire. Battling new obstacles at every turn, they eventually find refuge with Mira Delsol, pirate and former member of the elite empire forces.

    As the stakes rise, loyalists, mercenaries, and political opportunists rally around the heirs in a desperate bid to unseat the usurper. But if their risky gambit fails, will the empire crumble into oblivion?

    I loved the world building

    This is world building on Sanderson's level.
    You connect to the main characters in the book and cheers them on. The title of the book is misguiding I think as the strong female main character only has a bi-role. There is things that is mysterious and ready for reviling in the sequels. I hope for that at least.

    An entertaining YA book.

    Some criticized the reader on this book, but I thought he was fine. I’ve read most of Currie’s series and found this a bit tame and uncomplicated until I realized that this must be a YA novel. That certainly explains the lack of salty language and any element of male-female attraction. If this is the case, I think it should be presented as such so the readers of his more complex and grown up novels don’t buy it with the wrong anticipation that it will be like his other series. If taken as YA, it is an excellent book for that age group. I do enjoy some YA novels, so I can say that this book was entertaining to me and I will read the sequel to see how he ties this up. For a parent seeking an imaginative sci-fi book for their YA reader, with no profanity, goriness, or sexual content this book is a perfect selection!

    Potential

    Story does not get going until chapter 8 or 9. Voice performance is lacking and is the drag on this new series. Very interesting world building and mythology being set up. I will purchase the next book in the series.

    pretty good

    The poor performance really detracted from the story. The story move at a good pace. I'll try the next in the series.

    So much great content and mystery!

    I'm really enjoyed this story line and the fantasy world you've envisioned. Hope many more to come in this series.

    good popcorn

    good popcorn. Obviously leaving alot to drive sales of future books. Seems like half a story, with crafted mysteries intended for the second half.

    But, most importantly, none of the porn or other sexual shenanigans that permeate scifi and fantasy these days. that alone makes it one of the best books I've read this year.

    Decent Story, Terrible Narrator

    I struggled to finish because the narrator is just not good. the story kept me hooked enough to finish despite that. I doubt I'll pick up book 2 because I'm not sure if I can stomach the narrator again.

    An Empire Unfamiliar

    This experience was incredible--great world-building and character creation, which drove unstoppable action. It took awhile to understand who's who and what's what as the world and its physical laws were totally unfamiliar, at a level of originality rarely seen in the genre today. Now I'm a committed fan and can't wait to dive into the next book. My only criticism was the narration, which I found to be a bit dull, with every scene having the same timbre and intonation. It was like listening to my dad read the story. However, the story is so good it offsets the narration.
