Publisher's Write-Up

Femke, a gifted and resourceful young spy, is entrusted with a vital foreign mission by the Emperor. Her adversary, Shalidar, frames Femke with responsibility for two murders while she is visiting their neighbouring court. Femke is isolated in an alien country, being pursued both by her enemies and by the authorities. Only her side-kick, Reynik, a young military trainee, can help. Together, they must outwit the evil assassin Shalidar and prove Femke's innocence so they can complete the imperial mission. This is the first in a new series.

Review by Chrissi
Rating 8/10
The highest praise that I can give this book is that it reads like something from Raymond F Feist, the one that it reminds me of most is the Empire series, written with Janny Wurst. The heroine is a young woman whose skills as a spy place her in a position to assist the new Monarch in deadly intrigue. She was involved in his ascension and in doing so gained an implacable enemy, Shalidar.

Upon being sent as an ambassador to a neighbouring country, she finds him once again, and her life and that of the safety of her country is also in jeopardy. It takes much ingenuity and bravery for her to succeed and survive.

This is the kind of book begging for a series – well written and engaging, with exciting, expansive and thoughtful plotlines, this could be the start of something big – watch this space!
