In a world of blood and magic, a powerful epic fantasy begins... AN EMPEROR’S DAUGHTER WHO WILL NOT BE DENIED Just before her sixteenth birthday, Princess Katerina is refused her rightful place as heir to the Empire of the Ice-Bear—solely because of her sex. Determined to regain her inheritance, she murders the foreign lord she’s been ordered to marry and embarks on a perilous voyage to the lush, tropical islands of the Laut Besar in search of the vast wealth and power she needs to claim the Empire for herself. A PRINCE FORCED TO TAKE A STAND On a small island kingdom, Prince Arjun’s idyllic life is shattered when a malignant sorcerer invades, slaughters his people and steals the sacred sword of Jun’s ancestors. With his royal father dead and his palace in ruins, Jun reluctantly tracks the sorcerer and the magical blade far across the pirate-infested waters of the Laut Besar. A SORCERER SEEKING TO DESTROY THE WORLD Long ago the powerful relics known as the Seven Keys were used to safely lock away the terrifying evils of the Seven Hells. With Jun’s ancient sword in his grasp, the sorcerer Mangku has claimed the first Key, and begun his mission to unleash catastrophe upon the land. As the destinies of these three entwine in the lawless islands of the Laut Besar, the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. For if the sorcerer cannot be stopped, the world itself will be unmade…

Maybe I‘m just being impatient, I‘m only a few chapters in, but so far every POV character is awful and I can‘t figure out why I would spend time with any of them. Maybe it gets better, but my patience for a character to learn lessons like “the poors are people too”, “slavery is wrong”, and “maybe I shouldn‘t do so much murder” is limited.

What I enjoyed about reading this story was that it was very unique & that the world building was quite believable. The main characters are young adults but don‘t expect a YA fantasy. It has amazing battles where the action feels savage! Expect blood, death, cruelty, brutality, & characters that are so well developed & memorable that you will be begging for the sequel!
