Okay lemme just clarify some things and maybe weed out some people who probably shouldn't even give this book a try This story has instalove This story involves a culture where the females are owned as property It's backwards as heck The females have no power and their best lot in life is to1 Get claimed by a kind man as wife2 Live a life in a temple of women devoted to the gods 3 Be a favored courtesan4 Live somewhere in a hypothetical wilderness or land that isn't run by an emperorWhen I first started reading this I was a bit put off by the servantslaveproperty status of women But this does not define the story There are very strong themes of friendship and sisterhood Anything can be changed by those who have the courage to blaze their own pathKalinda is an orphan who was raised in a temple She is tall skinny and plain but gets chosen by the biggest king in the land as his one hundredth wife Yes he has a huge harem the wives plus courtesans She finds out she must duel any contenders in a tournament Kalinda just wants to live a peaceful life with her best friend but she finds romance and is thrust into a leadership position with rebels who have elemental powersThere have been a lot of Young Adult ueen stories and I won't say there is a whole lot here you might not have read before However I was uite engaged in the story and liked it enough to want to read the next oneLike I said the highlights were themes of friendship and finding the power within yourself standing up for your loved ones and what you believe inThe author says the religion in this story was derived from Sumerian deities I've always been interested in Mesopotamian myths so it worked for me You also get heavy dharmic vibes I thought Kalinda showed great girl power by the end It may not be the most sophisticated novel but it was pretty darn peachy in my view
