*throws absurd amount of confetti*
There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown’s inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.

Some excerpts from a glowing Kirkus Review:
“Every character is complex and multilayered, each with a story beyond just propping up the protagonist.”
“Renee herself is a flawed but sympathetic heroine who capitalizes upon her strengths, learns from her (serious) mistakes and slowly evolves from her rigid judgmental inclination to appreciate ambiguity and nuance while never compromising her essential integrity…”
“Workmanlike prose effectively grounds an energetic plot and solid worldbuilding in earthy descriptions and precise details.”
“… a warts-and-all portrayal of believable characters struggling with realistic conflicts affecting every level of society.”
