it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy

Magical mage and captain in the palace military, Kallista just wants to spend time with her family, but demons threaten the land and only her powers can save the queen and all her subjects. Split apart from several of her family members, Kallista must seek out the powerful demons and destroy them while gathering intelligence on rebel forces. Will she be strong enough to defeat the enemy? This second book in the author’s Rose trilogy (The Compass Rose is first) drew me in with its sympathetic heroine. Once I got past the notion of a woman having several husbands and them all sharing a bed, I became engrossed in the world Dayton has created. I’m now anxious to read book three and have already ordered it.
