Perhaps because I have been a student of politics and lover of history this book struck a chord with me . What interesting culture that schusses its leaders from all equally (as long as there's no bribery involved ). To see a girl taken from absolute poverty , educated , and rise to be the leader of leaders is always an interesting political historical story. Malevolence the ultimate evil entity , did not wish to see a land run by peers . Irons 700 had to choose between being a woman who had love and children and a woman who did what was best for her nation . And truly feeling blessed by the Goddess she felt like what she needed to do was to choose the latter .

A woman’s rise and fall in a fantasy world This novel by Dave Duncan is quite entertaining and engaging. I have previously read the Blades books which I enjoyed and hoped for a similar experience with this standalone novel. However it does not have the humour and light touch which I associated with the Blades books. This is the story of Irona who develops from a young fisherman’s daughter into one of the most important people in the Empire in which she lives. This is her story and focuses on her development as well as the political machinations and jockeying for power that go into the theocracy which reigns over the Empire. Wars with other regions ensue as well as the putting down of invasions by mysterious creatures. Recommended to fans of all of the author’s work and reminiscent of Trudi Canavan’s and Karen Miller’s work but not as good in my opinion as the Blades books.

A wonderful novel about farmers in Nebraska back in the early 1900's. Great characters too. ~*~LEB~*~
