Empire's Daughter surprised me I was not expecting such a winding and intense story My favorite part of this book was the interesting and uniue form of magic which I found mysterious and dark and strangely beautiful The weilders of the story's form of magic called the Sefid must destroy the things they love in order to access their magical abilities Which lends to the novel a feeling of sadness and loss which permeates throughout the entire story I was torn between two different feelings on one hand I felt for the Axkevlerans sad for them and their lot in life I can't imagine how they must feel knowing they are destined not only as servants but as possible sacrifices for their master's magical needs and whims But I also feel for the Kevlerans I don't think any of them really desire to destroy the things they love it is simply an aspect of their abilities A uniue version of Alchemy's give and take However it was obvious to me that Lerena and Yunara do not understand what love is which leads me to believe that most of the Kevlerans do not know what love truly means Another thing I really liked was the strong female characters I have found it hard to find books with believable strong female characters The women in this story feel alive they feel believable Unlike many stories where the strong female characters feel like the author's sad and careless attempt to appeal to a female audience A token if you will Thirdly complex political and familial relationships The dynamic between Lerena and her sister is so interesting where they recognize how much they love one another but also see how the other can be dangerous to have around This is in addition to the relationship between Maddyn and his cousins and Maddyn and his lover and baby mama Alway Finally lesbians Yes this is a fantasy story with lesbains And it is done in a way which is neither gratuitous or crude There are some adult themes minor sexual encounters which do not go in to much detail I would definitely recommend this book to people

Empire's Daughter The Chronicles of Kydan Book 1A brand new fantasy saga from the author of the Keys of Power series Third Prince Maddyn Kevleren is one of the few members of his roy. Although a comparatively small book for the fantasy genre Brown packs a surprising amount into this tale of politics families and intrigue Set in a wonderfully detailed world that revolves around two expansionist empires and their brutal intrigues Brown flexes his pen and proceeds to present to the reader ideas that are intriguingly different to the flood of medieval fantasy currently in the market Not that medieval fantasy is bad mind you but great ideas in this genre seem to be few and far between these daysIn the world of the Kydan Chronicles political power has been held exclusively by the Kevleren family for over 240 years Distinct in appearance the Kevlerens also stand apart from the people they rule by virtue of their gift the ability to Wield the Sefid a magical power that is untouchable to most people But to Wield the Sefid reuires a sacrifice and the greater the sacrifice the powerful the Wielding The Kevleren horde their gift and Kevleren law restricts any marriage outside their family nor may offspring from unions with non gifted subjects be allowed to liveOpening with the crowning of Lerena as the new empress of the mighty Hamilayan Empire the start of her reign is marked with conflict as General Third Prince Maddyn Kevleren defies his family and takes a commoner as a lover In an effort to prevent disaster Lerena offers him the posting of Commander on an expedition across the Deepening Sea to establish a colony in the politically troubled land of Kydan thus moving him far enough away to effectively exile him while also matching the expansive moves of the empire’s greatest enemy the Rivald kingdomMaddyn Hamilaya’s most gifted military leader accepts his cousin Lerena’s offer in an attempt to protect the life of his lover Alway and their unborn child from both the brutal law of the Kevlerens and from his last lover the Duchess Yunara sister to the empress Beautiful wilful and unstable Yunara is the most gifted Wielder of the Sefid Betrayed in love by Maddyn she will stop at nothing to avenge her broken heartAs the dramas in her family play out a revolt against the ruling Kevleren family in Rivald forces Lerena to confront a threat not just to that branch of the family but Kevlerens everywhere With twists and turns that keep you guessing Brown has produced a gem of strong characters and vivid locales in a world bordering on a type of alternate industrial revolution This is a tale that delights in the unexpected
