Publisher's Summary

Stashie is a heart reader. She wields a dangerous magic: one that reveals the truth at the heart of a person. So when the old king needs to know which of his sons has he pure heart, and which must be killed, he turns to heart readers to tell him the truth. But Stashie is a victim of vicious Gerneral Tarne, the country's military leader. The empire's killing machine ruined her life - this is her chance for revenge.

Rape. Gang rape. Gang rape as torture for teen...

Yep, half way through the book and we're still focused on the gang rape of a teen virgin. Look, I'm a huge fan of KKR but seriously this is going too far. Now the protagonist is in a situation where she is forced to face the man who staked her spread eagle in her village and 'gave' her to his 'men' (soldiers)...all because her lesbian lover was both greedy and oblivious to her pain.

Nope, not going to finish it.

Btw, this is the second time I called out a book for gratuitous rape scenes and have had my review disappear into an internet black hole...come on Audible, I'm getting suspicious here...
