Bethany (laynel) | 13 comments Read book sometime between 1998-2009

Main character is female, is to become leader/chief/something but must complete a quest and be a virgin to inherit

Other female characters include an emperor's concubine figuring out how to get pregnant even though he's super old, and an ex concubine/companion type who tries to commit suicide

There is at least one male adviser/magician with very very long fingernails on one hand (a sign of prominence/importance)

Magic is part of the story


Someone in the main character's quest group betrays and rapes her to try and disqualify her from leadership

The ex concubine character is saved by a palace eunuch
