Series: Dauntless Path #2
Author: Intisar Khanani
I did not choose this fate. But I will not walk away from it.
Children have been disappearing from across Menaiya for longer than Amraeya ni Ansarim can remember. When her friend’s sister is snatched, Rae knows she can’t look away any longer – even if that means seeking answers from the royal court, where her country upbringing and clubfoot will only invite ridicule.
Yet the court holds its share of surprises. There she discovers an ally in the foreign princess, who recruits her as an attendant. Armed with the princess’s support, Rae seeks answers in the dark city streets, finding unexpected help in a rough-around-the-edges street thief with secrets of his own. But treachery runs deep, and the more Rae uncovers, the more she endangers the kingdom itself.
A different leading lady, twinned with the original character….a shared cause.
Oh this story was so good! I listened to the audio and the narrator was fab!
Rae comes from the country to the Palace to stay with her cousin to help her but finds herself as an attendant to the new Queen, Alyrra.
Together they take on the plot of the missing children. Spying, gathering information and making alliances with a thief gang. It was so good, I was riveted!
Oh Bren…..oh how I loved that loveable rogue!!! I really hope there’s a hea there!
Well I didn’t expect that jaw dropper near the end! I was like no way so can’t wait to see what happens next!
