Summary:

A startling, seductive, deliciously dark debut that will shatter your definition of YA fantasy.

Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she's engaged to the prince, no one speaks to her. No one even looks at her. Because Twylla isn't a member of the court. She's the executioner.

As the goddess-embodied, Twylla kills with a single touch. So each week, she's taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love her. Who could care for a girl with murder in her veins? Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to her touch, avoids her.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose playful smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he's able to look past Twylla's executioner robes and see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla's problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies-a plan that requires an unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

    I just randomly decided to listen to this book and was pleasantly surprised with the book! I would definitely recommend.

  • Amanda Schiffmann

    I usually only listen to audiobooks in the car while commuting to and from work but after the first couple hours I didn't want to stop listening. I continued listening at home and flew through it in just five days. The narrator has a gorgeous accent and really brought the main character Twylla and the Kingdom of Lormere to life. She also did an excellent job differing between all the characters without making obvious and over the top voice changes. Book two is a must buy for me. I can't wait to get started!

  • Jodi Patch

    I loved this book. I read it as if she were a person, a real person who can't see what you can as a reader. only in hindsight can she sees her mistakes just like anyone else. love love love

  • April Leonard

    Amazing story. It took me a few chapters to really get into it, but after that I couldn't put it down can't wait to read the next one. Love the cliff hanger...

  • KERRY SPARLING

    Shallow, "all about me" type of book with no character growth at all. Would give it 0 stars if I could. Forced myself to finish it.

  • Alyssa Harvey

    If you can get this book for free- try it out. If you have to pay 14.95 like I did... I wouldn't recommend. The characters are just a little too rushed for me and the plot has some, ehem, taboo elements that I was not prepared for- nothing to scar you for life but this book definitely has adult themes. I also got annoyed by the main leads and their inability to think ahead... All I could think the entire time was "Well that was a stupid decision!" The character though who was completely believable and I applaud is the Queen, the main villain in the story. She is FREAKY and written in such a way that I would never want to meet her in real life, so I give a thumbs up for her character. Overall this book is okay- but it took me two weeks to actually get through it because the climax of the story was completely obvious from the beginning, so it was boring to listen to. But I agree with everyone else about the narrator- she's fantastic.

  • Andrew Susin

    Not what I would normally have chosen but since it was a free offering I figured that I would at the least give it a few minutes. Couldn't turn it off. Excellent story with deep characters and I would highly recommend giving it a try

  • traniel pride

    The book is actually great. It came together well and I look forward to more of this story if there will be more. I am very impressed

  • CRAIG HONOROF

    well, after getting this book by accident. I decided to listen to the complete story. it was very shallow on substance and was far.from what I would consider a YA story as was advertised. I wouldn't recommend this book.

  • Mary Olp

    The book started off very slow. I was actually board at first. Towards the end it picked up. The narration was good.
