Review by Dryas

Zendar is a world of sand and strife.

Living in the great capital of Zendar, Sol, Nitya has always longed for something more than her family’s merchant lifestyle. She craves adventure—or at least hopes something remotely exciting could happen. When her best friend, Juni, secures them both positions in the palace’s kitchen, Nitya gets to experience a different world than she ever imagined—especially after a young soldier catches her eye.

Her world will never be the same.

This is a prequel to the author’s Zendar series that is a very spicy romance featuring a planet that is mostly sand where they have to recycle water. There is a palace, liege lord, generals, and soldiers aplenty.

This story is about an 18-year-old woman, Nitya and her best friend Juni who were both looking for some adventure besides marriage. Niyta comes from a family of merchants and she is tired of the hum drum life doing same thing every day. Juni brings her exciting news: they are both going to be able to work in the palace kitchen because of her aunt for a month for a few days as one of the workers had a child.

They are both fun, and high-spirited women who want to explore the world around them without their parents hanging over their shoulders. Niyta is a little shyer than her friend; less high-spirited and less likely to look for trouble. She is also an incredibly wonderful artist and impresses one of the soldiers. Nitya does end up meeting a handsome soldier that she can’t keep out of her mind and it seems he was also intrigued by her.

He is a wonderful man that anyone would be happy to call their own. He obviously loves Nitya, even though he didn’t get to speak to her until she was working at the palace. He knew her kindness when he saw her give the piece of cake she was going to eat to a young child at Juni’s aunt’s birthday. He is strong when he needs to be but can be very gentle, especially around her.

I did enjoy this story and it does pique your interest in what will happen in the next in the series. If it is both as exciting and tender as this book, I believe I will be reading it next.
