Debut author Lauren D.M. Smith delivers an epic fantasy romance in this soaring tale of a kickass warrior and the emperor she's honor-bound to defend

The bride candidates have been summoned. Their numbers are many, yet only one is an Amazzi warrior. Only one would give her life to protect him.

Evony of Aureline, warrior of her people, has no intention of becoming a hideous old man's bride. Though her people have sworn their loyalty to the legendary emperor Galen, Evony knows little of courts and intrigue. It's simply not her world.

Yet it's on the palace training grounds where Evony's archery skills gain her the respect of soldiers and legates alike. The emperor himself takes notice of the beautiful, ruthless warrior. In turn, the young, steely eyed Galen is nothing at all what Evony expected.

This man could very well conquer her heart. But does he feel the same?

As the rivalry among the remaining bride candidates intensifies and the plot for the throne unfolds, Evony must make a grave choice: fulfill her destiny and protect her people or follow her heart and pursue true love.

Either way, the honor of the Amazzi people and the future of the empire now rests with Evony of Aureline. For she is the Emperor's Arrow.

Evony comes from a matriarchal island society of female warriors. She's never before left the island but she's just been sent to the palace by her own people to compete against other women in a bizarre competition to become the Emperor's bride. She doesn't expect to win the competition; instead, her mission is to find a suitable man to impregnate her (or possibly a life mate if she's lucky) so she can go home and fulfill her duties to her clan.

I was expecting this book to be YA but surprisingly, it doesn't seem to be. This is a fantasy romance with decent world-building but it's definitely a ROMANCE--if i had read this book expecting a fantasy I would've been really disappointed, just saying... While it could be compared to Kiera Cass' The Selection due to the premise, i think it's a lot better written (not a huge feat but worth mentioning)... Read more
This is more of a 3.5 than a 3. I liked the story but the author emasculated the emperor. He is described as a warrior who has conquered the world but while assassins keep aiming for him, he never fights to protect himself, his guards are never around, and he keeps putting himself in poor situations that lead to an attempt on his life. I find it hard to believe that one so skilled in battle would have such inept guards to protect him. When you try to flush out traitors, you fake that you are in a vulnerable position. You don't actually put yourself in a weak spot with no back up time and time again so that a bride candidate has to save you everytime. This is her love interest? The emperor has no depth and he certainly doesn't display himself as a conquering warrior which would be someone that I think she could be attracted to.

I do agree with an irritation that was brought up in other reviews. The author has made up new words for time and height that have no... Read more
I will admit it was the cover that attracted me and since this is a debut novel the cover is very important so GOOD JOB.
As for the story well at first I thought maybe 3stars but as I got into it the author grabbed me. The relationship between the main characters was beautifully done with a slow build and a very well done love scene (sex scene does not quite give it it's due, and I luv a good dirty sex scene, this was a SIGH worthy, beautifully done Love scene). So, with great characters, action, romance, secondary characters and story line I decided that this debut author deserved 5 stars.
I have over 8,000 books and if I really enjoy one I will get the audio book and I have. The audio book is fantastic and the narrator does a great job with both male and female characters as well as all the secondary characters.
I look forward to more from this author and will automatically by her next one.
I am not a friend of this author and ARC did not give me a free copy to... Read more
