What if your deadliest enemy were the only one who could save you?
Inside an ancient temple in the mountains, fifteen-year-old Zira
trains in the martial arts to become a warrior priestess who can defend
the faith of the Ruan people. Bearing a scar on her face from the fire
that killed her parents, the orphaned Zira is taught to distrust the
occupying Sedornes. Terror strikes when the forces of the tyrannical
Sedorne king destroy the only home she knows. To survive, Zira must
unravel the secrets of her identity, decide her people’s fate — and
accept her growing feelings for a man who should be her enemy.
It is an okay book and I enjoyed it. But the relationship between Zira and Sorin went from non existing to marriage within a few days and yes I know the reasons for it but it just felt like it went too fast. There was lots of action but the book just didn't pull me in to the story as much as I would have liked.
