Description

The fate of an empire lies in the hands of one untested princess.

Princess Natasia is the eldest child of the Emperor Andreth, ruler of the Four Realms. If she was a boy, she’d be the unquestioned heir to the throne. But as a girl, her main duty in life is to marry someone her father can shape into his successor.

Everything changes when an unknown, would-be assassin nearly takes Tasia’s life. Someone wants to destabilize the Empire - but who? Was the assassin aligned with the power-hungry Western lords, who have always rebelled against the Emperor? Was he hired by the barbarians in the East; who are fighting against the Empire’s subjugation? Or was he a member of the mysterious Cult of Culo?

Unsure of whom he can trust, the Emperor realizes that his daughter might be his best option for an heir. There hasn't been a female heir to the throne in living memory, but as palace intrigue becomes increasingly dangerous, the reckless, rebellious, and stubborn princess suddenly has to face the responsibility of learning to lead. Will she rise to the occasion? Or will the Empire fall at the hands of one of its many enemies?

For fans of epic fantasy...with an LGBTQ twist.

Can’t wait for the next one!

I never write reviews, but I as I finished this book I felt like I had to. I was sucked into the story and began to care about the characters quickly. The story ticked a lot of boxes for me as well, such as political intrigue, magic/fantasy elements, romance, intelligent strong female characters , and a bit of witty humor. The performance by the narrator was really good as well. She used varies voices, accents, and intonation for many characters as well as had nice speed/timing throughout the story.

If these qualities seem like something you’d enjoy, I highly recommend giving this book a chance. I definitely was not disappointed :)

A fantastic read.

The world building and characters are absolutely phenomenal in this book. From chapter one, I have adored Tasia as a character and can barely wait to read about more of her story. Every character made sense and felt real, and all of the drama came from their own beliefs and desires interacting. It made for one of hell of a story.

The quality of the writing is also impressive. The word choice, use of language, imagery, and style all come together to create a book that is an absolute pleasure to read.

Then on top of that, the narrator does a spectacular job. Each character has their own voice and feels unique, and I'm a little in love with her Joselyn. I hope the writer and this narrator continue to work together and I'm already considering buying their last book.

For what it is, not bad at all

It kept me listening, and I'll keep an eye out for more. Nowhere near the depth of storytelling as Sarah Waters but A LOT better than most other lesbian books out there. Definitely recommend if you like fantasy and strong female characters.

So pleasantly surprised.

I’ve always understood the concept of representation, but this book really hit home. I love the otherworld/ fantasy genre, and Andrews really did a fantastic job. Being able to actually identify with the characters was mind-blowing. Is this what straight people get to enjoy when they read cis character fantasy books?! Thank you Eliza Andrews.

Elizabeth Saydah did well with the the three lead characters (including Mila). The men tended to sound the same but it wasn’t a big deal.

Buy it. It’s amazing.

It’s an amazing story with intriguing complex characters. It’s the fantasy novel the lgbt community deserves.

Exactly what I’ve been waiting for.

I’ve been waiting for a epic fantasy novel that has a queer romance in the subplot. There have been many but none this good. I can’t wait for book 2.

Wonderful fantasy with great leading couple

I don’t usually write reviews but this story was one that I couldn’t stop listening to. The story had everything that keeps me listening: adventure, strong female lead, compelling relationship and many obstacles to overcome. I truly did not want it to end. So please write another soon :-).

I didn't know I needed this in my life<br />

On her blog, Eliza Andrews describes Princess of Dorsa as 'Game of Thrones with lesbians'. She's right in that her novel is epic fantasy with a complex, engaging plot and fantastic worldbuilding. Well, and the occasional scene that could steam dinner for four. Seriously though, Princess of Dorsa is a well-written, meaty listen that differs from Game of Thrones in one important way. Andrews outshines it in her characters. I cared. I felt that they could walk off the page and she had me in tears quite a few times. Not necessarily with sadness, but because Andrews created a world and characters that I could care about. Their triumphs. Their defeats. Their evolution. I cannot wait for Soldier of Dorsa, and Empress of Dorsa. I hope Andrews keeps writing forever.
