Shadowblade by Anna Kashina
Author of the award-winning Majat Code series brings you Shadowblade, an epic romantic fantasy about a young sword prodigy who must impersonate a lost princess and throw her life into a deadly political game.
Naia dreams of becoming a Jaihar Blademaster, but after assaulting a teacher, her future seems ruined. The timely intervention of a powerful stranger suddenly elevates her into elite training of the upper grounds.
She has no idea that the stranger is Dal Gassan, head of the Daljeer Circle. Seventeen years ago he witnessed the massacre of Challimar’s court and rescued its sole survivor, a baby girl. And Gassan plans to thrust a blade into the machinations of imperial succession: Naia.
Disguised as the legendary Princess Xarimet of Challimar, Naia must challenge the imperial family and win. Losing means certain death, but in victory she would forsake everything she holds dear – even the man she loves.
