Shelves: book-review , fantasy This book is a trilogy wrapped up in one pretty little and very long package. I have a lot of thoughts about this series so bare with me here while I try to make it somewhat comprehensible. Ive written a review about Empress here about my love for Hekat, the protagonist of that book. I know a lot of people that read it hate her, but I love Hekat and I love that first book and I always will.

Bloodbath Villain Origin : Hekat kills the two slavers who bought her with a divine-like curse as they had revealed her as a runaway slave to the warlord, and if the godspeakers heard, she would be nailed to a cross, disemboweled and left to die. Ironically, no actual blood is shed, and she even choses to forgo slitting their throats to use the curse.
