    • Abstract:
      Summary: In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness -- and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer. These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn't until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari -- a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl. Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she's offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend -- a slave boy from her betrothed's household --Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

Booklist Reviews 2017 September #2

Princess Asha appears to be her father's pride and joy in a way her seemingly weaker older brother, Dax, can never be. She's on a quest to exterminate dragons, something her father tells her is necessary to the kingdom Firgaard's survival; he betroths her to his cruel-hearted commandant; and he praises the dragon fire scar that traces one side of her body. When Asha is attracted to slave Torwin, it is only the beginning of her journey to truth and honor, and to discovering her father's real nature. Is she her father's weapon or her country's true hero? Firgaard history and myth are bound up with dragons and their lore, and the plotline alternates with short dragon stories that connect to Asha's current life. First-time novelist Ciccarelli offers an above-average romantic adventure that pulls readers in with careful pacing and something of a twist at the end. Villains are sometimes but not always easy to recognize, and Asha wrestles with her own prejudice (class rather than race) as she sorts the good from the bad. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Fall

Asha, the king's daughter, is a dragon hunter who lures her prey with forbidden stories. To escape an unwanted betrothal, Asha must kill the powerful First Dragon that scarred her years ago; meanwhile, political secrets, ancient spirits, and a daring young slave draw her attention away. Layered mysteries keep Asha--and readers--in the dark for much of this complex fantasy. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
