Publisher's Summary

Sasha is a fighter, the likes of which the highland country of Lenayin has never seen.
Spurning her royal heritage to be raised by the great warrior Kessligh, Sasha's exquisite swordplay astonishes all who see it. But she is young, untested in battle, and often led by her rash temper. In the complex world of Lenayin loyalties, her willfulness is attracting the wrong kind of attention.
Lenin is a land divided by its beliefs: the Verenthane of the ruling class, and the pagan Goeren-yai, amongst whom Sasha now lives. The Goeren-yai value swordplay and honor, and have come to see Sasha as the great spirit who will unite them. But Sasha is still searching for what she believes and must choose her side carefully.
Soon she will face her moment of testing. Is she ready to lead? Can she be the savior the Goeren-yai want her to be?

Decent dialog, good fight scenes

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is mostly told through dialog and it drags. There are some good action scenes and the dialog is actually pretty good, but the normal doing of things that makes up a story is kinda missing.

Which scene was your favorite?

The end. The book could have been shortened by an appreciable amount.

Did Sasha inspire you to do anything?
