Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope..
Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.
The novel had an interesting concept. The heroine is unknown to the people in the kingdom for the saviour that she is, however I soon got tired of this concept, it seemed as though she was always held back by her public image. I felt that the story dragged on, I almost had to force myself to read the book. The ending of the book was enticing, I wanted to finish the book, for if nothing more, to find out how the mystery is solved. The novel was well written but the ending was disappointing, I expected more from the novel. Overall the novel had interesting concepts but was lacking an engaging relationship and one main point of action.
