This was a good book, but it came up short by stopping just after it had started the story. It was like one of those TV shows you watch every week that is a hour show, and then the season finale builds up and up and then, at the half-hour break, says to be continued... Point is, I now want to read the next book in the series, but, as far as I can tell there is no next book. If anyone knows the title of the next in the series, I would be eternally gratefull if you could email me at email@example.com. Thanks!
The Silver Gleaming Co had been like a family to Lady Sofaltis, daughter of Duke Rilfe, since her father first sent her off to live wiht her aunt so she coulde learn proper behavior. the duke would have been horrified to discover that far from becoming some dainty court lady, Sofaltis had become an expert swordswoman, a Blade, member of an elite fighting corps.
And then the duke's emissary came to escort Sofaltis home after the bizarre disappearance of her brothers. But once home, Sofaltis learned her father had chosen a husband for her without her consent, a man named Kylin, who seemed scarcely able to protect even himself. Sofaltis was not about to go meekly along with such plans, especially not when she began to suspect that Kylin was a spy for the unknown enemy that was undermining the kingdom.
Yet unforeseen circumstances and a magical gift of the gods would soon force Sofaltis and Kylin to unite against thedanger that threatened to destroy their entire world....
