Blades of the Old Empire

Blades of the Old Empire treats the reader to infuriating villains, constant suspense and the amazing abilities of the Majat warriors.  The Majat follow a code so strict, failing to follow it can result in death.  Of course, this becomes a problem for Kara, a Majat warrior that is simply too smart to blindly follow a flawed code.

Kashina is a master of communicating complex concepts.  In a couple lines, she can hit the reader with an startling philosophy or a valuable life lesson.  She typically does this through dialogue – giving her characters instant depth.

Another notable quality, is Kashina’s choice for the point-of-view characters.  She shows her world through the eyes of typical people (well, as typical as a wizard prince and a truth-detecting young woman can be).  This makes it much easier to accept the astonishing Majat warriors that accompany them throughout the tale.

This was a enjoyable book that I highly recommend.  I’ve already purchased the second book in The Majat Code series – The Guild of Assassins.

Blades of the Old Empire wows the reader with a profound and endearing cast.  Kashina’s talent for conveying complex ideas quickly endows her characters with instant depth.
