Publisher Description

When a heist goes terribly wrong and the binding spell holding 17-year-old Neva's powers at bay is shattered, the half-human thief knows she's in trouble. 

Neva has always hidden her Da'Valian heritage while working risky jobs to make a name for herself and serving at her family's tavern, but she won't be able to hide much longer. She can either risk the safety of those she cares about or seek out her mother's people to gain control over her emerging powers. 

The Da'Valia are beautiful, brutal creatures created by the god of war, and the austere Da'Valian soldier Astiand reluctantly agrees to take Neva to his clan under his protection. She makes unexpected friends, including the handsome fighter Emiliand, and a new enemy in the clan's ruthless leader. 

Spying on her guardian, the sly heroine quickly discovers just how deep she has stumbled into a dangerous, developing clan feud. Will she be able to embrace who she is in time to keep her loved ones safe?

Throne of Glass meets ACOTR

Fans of Sarah J Mass (both series) pay attention and listen close, this book blew my socks off.
What I really loved was the turmoil and drama of this novel. Although I dislike love triangles as they’re typically over done, I didn’t mind this specific triangle as it’s more spur of the moment. Neva is a very relatable character, wanting to do by her family to get them out of debt but also to keep her secrets of her true heritage, plus keeping true to herself and wanting to know more. I look forward to the second in the series.
PSA : it’s available on audiobook and it’s AMAZING. The narrator was perfect. She really captured the nature of each character present and made me feel in the world itself instead of being at my very boring day job.
