Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the candidacy. Where dreams go to die.
Twenty-year-old Ryiah is a black mage of combat, but she is not the Black Mage. Yet. She's had her eyes on the legendary robe for as long as she can remember, and in just one year she will have a chance at her country's prestigious - and only - tourney for mages. Too bad she is going up against a certain non-heir. The one person she has yet to beat.
Meanwhile Ry has a year to prove herself in her new role as a war mage and the prince's betrothed. Neither is quite what she expected and complications arise on both fronts. War is on the horizon, and with so many enemies the kingdom's fate is more than ever at risk.
The candidacy finally arrives, but it's only the beginning. Nothing can prepare her for what comes next.

Worth reading, even if you skip book 2

I like the narrator's natural voice, but I think her characters were a little more lacking than some other narrators.

I read the first and third book, but as others complained, book 2 isn't available on audible. Even without reading book 2, I thought book 3 stood well on its own. I like strong female protagonists, so I like how Ryiah has worked hard for everything she got and earned every bit of it.

loved it.

this was the 3rd book and I loved the first one but I didn't get a chance to read the 2nd book do to me being a mom and no time to read anymore just listen. so first off I would like the 2nd in audio please asap. now that's said the third was great I didn't feel to lost and the story unfolds beautifully. I really like the narrator she did a awesome job but I felt she had a little lisp sometimes. definitely worth a credit.
