Sword and Verse


Publisher : Harper Teen

Publication Date : January 19th, 2016


Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Raisa was just a child when she was sold to work as a slave in the kingdom of Qilara. Despite her young age, her father was teaching her to read and write, grooming her to take his place as a Learned One. In Qilara, the Arnathim, like Raisa, are the lowest class, and literacy is a capital offense. What’s more, only the king, prince, tutor, and tutor-in-training are allowed to learn the very highest order language, the language of the gods. So when the tutor-in-training is executed for teaching slaves this sacred language, and Raisa is selected to replace her, Raisa knows any slipup on her part could mean death.

Keeping her secret is hard enough, but the romance that’s been growing between her and Prince Mati isn’t helping matters. Then Raisa is approached by the Resistance—an underground army of slave rebels—to help liberate Arnath slaves. She wants to free her people, but that would mean aiding a war against Mati. As Raisa struggles with what to do, she discovers a secret that the Qilarites have been hiding for centuries—one that, if uncovered, could bring the kingdom to its knees.

    Great pick! I remember seeing this one over on GR a few times.

  2. Eve says:

    Torn between helping the people and following your heart. Either way risking everything. I like it. And as a stand alone that is pretty impressive. What I’m Waiting On

  3. Great pick! I’m looking forward to this one too. I’ve been on such a fantasy kick lately, so I definitely have this on my list.
