“Jura imagined it sounded like rain.”

Juggling death is nothing new for seventeen-year-old Jura, daughter of the First of the Thirteen, successive rulers of the Republic of the Sand Sea. However, when a blood chain ensnares her father, she is thrust into the seat of power and forced to rule her elders.

“To Tylak, water had never tasted sweeter.”

Jura must track down her father’s assassin and balance a country on the verge of collapse. To find the Prince of Shadows and uncover the truth, Jura puts her trust in Tylak, a former slave accused of stealing from the Everflame—a man she once condemned to death.

In a world where water is currency and enemies lurk around every corner, Jura will use her wits or risk igniting a world war.

- Review -
Once I read what this book was about I knew I wanted to give it a try because it’s right in the realm of what I like to read. It kinda gave me the vibes of ‘Rebel of the sands’ in a small way. 

It’s told from many points of views that couldn’t be confusing if your not use to it. I read many books that jump from one character to a next so that didn’t bother me. For me, I enjoy the Characters, but for me the world is my favorite part. I’m a fun of good world building and this book dose a nice job at it. The mix different place makes it fun. The government system is not to confusing, it’s easy to follow even those there’s a lot of different kinds and styles in this book. 

The magic in this fantasy book is well done!! I don’t like fantasy stories where the magic is overdone or hard to follow. 

The plot is strong, pacing could be a little slow but other then that I always wanted to know what was going to happen next. 

Let’s just take one second and talk about this cover! I am crazy for this style and man, I’m liking those colors; it fits this story greatly!
