After her mentor mysteriously dies, Kyra, an elite warrior Markswoman, finds herself on the run from the dangerous Mistress of Mental Arts and heads into the unforgiving desert where she befriends Rustan, a disillusioned Marksman of the Order of Khur. Original. 25,000 first printing.





Having just killed her first mark, Kyra is now a Markswoman in the Order of Kali. The oldest Order in Asiana, the Order of Kali is known for their great fighting skills and their wise Mahimata, Shirin Mam. All of the Markswomen fight with their katari, a telepathic dagger to which they are psychically linked. When Kyra discovers the body of Shirin Mam, she strongly suspects that Tamsyn, the Mistress of Mental Arts, had something to do with the death. Her suspicions put her in danger, and Kyra flees to the camp of the Order of Khur. Unlike other Orders, which are all female, this Order is all male. Kyra trains with them so she can challenge Tamsyn for the leadership of the Order of Kali. The author hits all the familiar beats of the chosen-one narrative as well as the romantic antagonists-turned-allies plot. Nevertheless, Mehrota's page-turning debut concocts a solid fantasy world with a strong heroine. Readers will look forward to the next in the series. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
