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 :)

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.

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.

Buy it. It’s amazing.

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

A beautiful tale of love in a fantasy world...

In the past year I've read a lot books that were progressively better but this one really stood out for me. I'm not particularly good at reviews and am generally terrified to write things in public spaces. So here goes...

If you are looking for a fantasy romance story involving queer women, there are a few of those out there and for the most part are very good. Princess of Dorsa is something special though. The story of love, betrayal, heartbreak, forgiveness, moving on, and coming back around had me crying for various reasons throughout. The main characters are likeable from start to finish and even in cringe moments it's hard not to understand why. Motivations are natural and unforced. There's a few lovemaking scenes and they are written beautifully, rather then what is often embarrassing or awkwardly forced.

It's a really good book. If you are into romance or fantasy, or fantasy romance, I would urge you to give it a chance.

Couldn’t stop listening!

This book was simply amazing! Quarter into the book I was hooked. I could not stop listening! The princess’ character was very developed. The author took you on a journey watching the princess grow from a spoiled teenager to a wise adult.

This book can be described as a softer (not as grotesque) lesbian Game of Thrones type book. This author definitely knows how to bring out the emotion in the reader; I may have cursed out loud at one point. The villains were hated and the heroine loved. This book does not disappoint in any way. It has mystery, fighting, drama, romance... A little bit of everything. I enjoyed it so much I’m going to listen to it again.

The narrator does an amazing job of different character voices where you always know who is speaking. Did a great job. First time listening to the narrator and was very pleased.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised on how much I enjoyed this book. I have enjoyed a book this much in a while. Looking forward to the second book and hopefully this author writes more than just a sequel!!

Awesome

I have recently dived deeper into this part of fantasy novels and I truly must say: I am impressed and can't wait for my girl Joslyn to return to snarky mule headed Taisa! Thumbs up on Elizabeth Saydah, you, Miss, have a very distinctive and soothing voice and I could not think of someone else to read this book. Your voice fit the characters perfectly. Thank you for rounding up this experience to something truly enjoyable!

why are you lying

It's one of the stories that try to tell you over and over again how good, intelligent, smart etc. the protagonist is even though every 2nd action she takes shows her to be a coward, unintelligent, unstable, nagging etc.
