In Ashryia, the Nobles are given a choice. They can recuse themselves from service to the kingdom, choose the Path of the Crown and train in the art of diplomacy, or choose the Path of the Sword and join the Ashryian Army.
Ever since the death of her mother, Alastrine of Naramore has dreamed of becoming a soldier, a War Maiden. However, as a Noble Lass, choosing the Path of the Sword would break from Tradition and invoke the wrath of the Nobles. Despite this, Alastrine holds aloft the sword.
In the face of growing opposition, will Alastrine discover the strength within herself to survive? Will she fulfill her dream of becoming a War Maiden, and if she does, how will her decision change the world?

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I generally don’t read fantasy genre but someone recommended that I read this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read an engaging story. The writing was vivid and made the characters come alive. The battle scenes were especially descriptive and they seemed to unfold immediately before me.” —Jamie on Amazon
