Publisher's Summary

When 17-year-old Kai is exposed as a female sorceress, a moonburner, she knows the punishment is death. Despite the odds against her, Kai escapes her fate and undertakes a harrowing journey to a land where moonburners are revered and trained as warriors.
But the moonburner citadel is not the place of refuge and learning that Kai imagined. The ongoing war against the male sorcerers, or sunburners, has led the citadel leadership down a dark path that could spell the end of all magic. Armed with a secret from her past and a handsome but dangerous ally in the sunburner prince, Kai may be the only one able to prevent the destruction of her people.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Young adult, however appropriate for all ages. I was really drawn into this story from the beginning. I was immediately intrigued by the premise. Enough young romance to keep you engaged, but not overdone.

PROFANITY AND SEX: None, thank you. Appropriate for readers of all ages. I would be happy for my teenage or pre-teen children to read or listen to this book.

NARRATOR: I felt that the narrator did a great job at bringing this book to life. I was never lost, or confused as I listened to the book.

OVERALL: Lots of twists and turns, not another “canned” YA romance. I listened to this book in one sitting during a trip and loved it.

Nothing about this story I didn't love!

Awesome story! Kai is born into a society where girls who are Moonburners are killed at birth by the king of the Sunburners. Her parent’s manage to hide her out by pretending she’s a boy. That lasts until she’s 17 then it’s discovered she’s a Moonburner and her family is sentenced. Kai’s sent to the desert where she wanders one step away from death. While there her magical animal finds her. These animals are only for people of great power and importance which is discovered later in the story.
I loved the animals attached to the burners. It’s a nice touch. The story has an easy flow and even though I’d figured it out within the first few chapters I continued listening. I don’t usually do that but this story drew me in even though I wasn’t surprised by its events. That’s a huge plus for me.
The narrator Emma Lysy’s performance is excellent and fitting to the story and Kai’s character. There wasn’t anything about this story I didn’t love.

I received this book free from the author through audiobook boom.
