Publisher's Summary

A war is brewing in the Empire.

Not the War in the East - that is a war everyone already knows about, the war that some wanted to end so badly that they murdered an Emperor to stop it. No, this is a different war. A war between the Shadowlands and the mortal world, a war between light and darkness. A war the Brotherhood of Culo has warned about for generations. But no one wanted to listen.

And as war brews, an Empress in exile struggles to regain her crown, and the warrior sworn to protect that Empress fights to make it back to her. Yet the warrior faces an enemy which even she, the Empire’s greatest living sword master, may not be able to defeat: The warrior battles time itself.

And time is running out for the soldiers of the House of Dorsa.

The shadows are coming. Can you hear them?

This is book two in a series of three. Listen to Princess of Dorsa first!

Sleep the only thing that stopped me from finishing this book in one sitting

If there’s a merciful higher being then there will be another book I’m so invested in this story and how it ends that I’d be crushed if just ended now the characters storytelling and everything about this was pure magic

Fantastic. Highly recommend.

I could not stop listening! As with the first book in this series, I feel that we’ve finally been given a LGBQT storyline that is well written, brilliantly creative/entertaining, and had zero cringeworthy pandering gay moments that are so prevalent in this sub-genre. Also, I had to admit to my wife that I have a HUGE crush on Jocelyn. When does the movie/tv show come out?!

Can't wait for Empress of Dorsa

This was a great 2nd installment in the series, I got through Princess of Dorsa in 2 days and tore through Soldier in another 3. Amazing series with character you truly root for, and a high-stakes plot that can really rope you in. I love the worldbuilding in this second book, adding detail to stories and character histories we only got hints of in the first one. I really love not only Tasia and Joslyn, but the supporting characters as well (Brick! Linna! Ku-sai! Milo! Ammanta! So many). I wish the author the best so that Empress can come out as soon as realistically possible haha

Eliza Andrews! When is the next book?

I need at least 10 more books. The story is getting more interesting and intense. I accidentally broke a beaker at work while listening. Loved it.

On the fence? Buy it!

Once again the narrative straddles between political (miliary-lite) intrigue and supernatural, this time in a wonderful a-plot/b-plot that allows both leads space to grow. The flashback chapters threw me a little, but they really allowed characters like Nick or Kusai to be explored. After all Tasia's escapes were botched or imperilled last book, I'll admit to nicknaming her "Empress Can't-Catch-A-Break" and while her misfortune continued, her overcoming it all with her learned skills felt extremely vicariously gratifying. Very interested to see what Book 3 holds.

likes, dislike and can't wait for the last book...

yes, like somebody written before... it can be disorienting when back flashes are introduced... just know that at most of each new chapter the lady will say 'Then' and then 'Now' when she's coming back to the present... keep your ears open it is hard sometimes to hear and remember... The story is great, really great character development especially for the two to be separated and grow a little more into their independence because we kind of learned that they never really got to only rely on themselves. so it was interesting to see how they proceeded. still missing each other but knowing that they have to let go and grow. I dislike that every time they were introduced to something new in the world they kept saying, no that's not possible, I don't believe you, I don't understand, etc, etc, even when just before they saw something impossible happen... so why aren't their minds more open to these things that people are saying. I will say that it was cool to have various different cults clubs kind of vying for these two characters to to be a part of them but we as a readers don't really even know who was the right person to follow or telling the truth... everybody's shady in this. I thought the shadow lands/dream walking would be a little bit more more just that they kept saying you're not limited by the mortal world because you're not in the physical world anymore. it was like they could have done so much more if you can use your imagination in that realm...but to be fair it's a princess and an ex-slave/ warrior they probably don't have as much imagination anymore. imagination beating out of their childhood. SPOILER for anyone that wants it ... the the two don't meet in person until chapter 58... ... ... just if your kind of waiting and waiting and waiting ... and what happened to the boy at the end??? where his story go???... and what about all the people that didn't survive, what happened to them are they in the shadowlands still??... what about that cliffhanger 'River of souls' what does that mean???... I really can't wait for the last book. I really want to know how it all ends...

oh sweet baby donkey 😅

Fantastic, can't-put-it-down fantasy with relatable, lovable, characters. While the fantasy takes place in a patriarchal society, the central characters are female. Continuing to reveal Joselyn and Tasia's characters, while developing said characters through page-turning, trial-by-fire growth, is Eliza Andrews' gift to the reader. Tasia and Jocelyn's struggle against the inherent dismissal of their ideas, skills, and birthrights because of their sex is an altogether shamefully familiar one, and woven cleverly throughout the book. I particularly like that though given no establishment to share information like the brotherhood or wise men, females find ways to pass vital information to the sisterhood, nevertheless. Sequels, in my experience, are usually less than their originals. This book is an exception. This series is increasingly enjoyable with each book. I am looking forward to book 3, when I will binge all the books. Keep up the great work!

slightly disappointed but good book

don't get me wrong the book is great and story is ok but its in the gay/lesbian category but with only 2-3 kisses not in life but only in the shadow lands and only in the last 10 minutes of a nearly 23 hour long book they actually get to spend time together. the first book was so much better I think this book just went off course a little.
