Review: Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan

Sword and Verse
(Sword and Verse #1)
by Kathy MacMillan
Published: January 19, 2016

Raisa was only a child when she was kidnapped and enslaved in Qilara. Forced to serve in the palace of the King, she’s endured hunger, abuse, and the harrowing fear of discovery. Everyone knows that Raisa is Arnath, but not that she is a Learned One, a part of an Arnath group educated in higher order symbols. In Qilara, this language is so fiercely protected that only the King, the Prince, and Tutors are allowed to know it. So when the current Tutor-in-training is executed for sharing the guarded language with slaves and Raisa is chosen to replace her, Raisa knows that, although she may have a privileged position among slaves, any slipup could mean death.

That would be challenging enough, but training alongside Prince Mati could be her real undoing. And when a romance blossoms between them, she’s suddenly filled with a dangerous hope for something she never before thought possible: more. Then she’s approached by the Resistance—an underground army of slaves—to help liberate the Arnath people. Joining the Resistance could mean freeing her people…but she’d also be aiding in the war against her beloved, an honorable man she knows wants to help the slaves.

Working against the one she loves—and a palace full of deadly political renegades—has some heady consequences. As Raisa struggles with what’s right, she unwittingly uncovers a secret that the Qilarites have long since buried…one that, unlocked, could bring the current world order to its knees.

And Raisa is the one holding the key.

January 2016 Reads + Monthly Recap

Goodness, is it February already? I haven't even gotten a good look at my 2016 goals enough to make a great start. LOL. It had been a really busy month actually. I was swamped with work since Christmas vacation and things aren't going to be easy until the end of February. Way to go, 2016! But freedom is oh so close and one more month of very little to no sleep won't bring me down.

That said, I am currently 1 book behind schedule on my 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge. I swear I am going to catch up this summer. It was still a pretty good reading month, considering. A big thanks to the Clean Slate Read-a-Thon which is the main reason why I am not as behind as I dreaded. My TBR pile for this week-long event consisted of four books and I read three of them even though I had enough time to start and finish the last one -- work couldn't help itself but get in the way. Also, I am proud that I stuck to my TBR.
